7 Hotspots to Spend Your Babymoon
Do it up right at these resorts before the little one is born
Vanderbilt Grace, Newport, RIThis stunning Relais & Chateaux property offers a fab mommy-to-be getaway package that includes two nights’ accommodation and daily breakfast for two, samples of Apivita natural beauty products, and in-room amenities such as herbal teas and fresh fruit and prenatal yoga followed by a massage. Plus, you can get a butler drawn bath by request, and at the end of your visit, they send you and your babe-to-be away with a cute little blanket and cuddly toy.
Surf and Sand Resort, Laguna Beach, CAYou'll feel like you're at home while staying here (ok, it's way better than home!). Each room or suite has a private deck or balcony overlooking the ocean, so everyone has an incredible view. The resort also offers special treatments at their Aquaterra Spa, including a mother-to-be massage that pays special attention to the areas that need it the most, using all organic, baby-safe oils. You and the hubby will never want to step foot off of this property.
Lake Placid Lodge, Lake Placid, NYThere's nothing quite like the serenity and tranquility of the Adirondacks, which is why Lake Placid Lodge is perfect for a romantic babymoon getaway. Choose to have a candlelit dinner at the Artisans restaurant, roast marshmallows by the firepit overlooking the mountains and lake, or take a sunset cruise on the lake. The lodge also offers in-room, fireside couples massages, in the case you don't want to venture out of your room.
The Chanler at Cliff Walk, Newport, RIThis historic hotel offers jaw-dropping views of the Atlantic Ocean, and within steps of the property you can dip your feet into the water. Other perks include a decadent gourmand tasting menu at the chef's table with seaside views, and a butler drawn bath with rose petals and bubbles in the evening. And we hear turndown service includes pickles and ice cream. Preggo or not, this sounds so delicious!
Washington School House, Park City, UTThis century-old landmark offers stunning views of the mountains and downtown Park City. While your hubby is out enjoying skiing or hiking, enjoy the hearty mountain breakfast, an in-room massage, the heated pool surrounded by the great outdoors, and shop in the exquisite Apothecary Boutique. Did we mention there's even a private antique and art collection within the property?
Celebrity Silhouette Cruise Ship, Caribbean DestinationsIf you're aching to travel but are just plain exhausted, set sail to the Caribbean on Celebrity Cruises new Celebrity Silhouette Ship. AquaClass and suite guests can take advantage of the Persian Garden, a stunning peaceful oasis with grottos and chambers that release aromatherapy-infused dry heat, steam and mists into the air. Spa-goers can relax on heated mosaic lounge chairs overlooking the water. And there's even a massive list of international craft beers for the hubby to enjoy in the Michael’s Club. (Note: Celebrity Cruises cannot accept guests who have or will enter their 24th week of pregnancy, and require a "fit to travel" physician’s note for all expecting guests.)
Hilton Garden Inn Carlsbad, Carlsbad, CAWith the view of the Pacific Ocean, it doesn't get much more relaxing than this. One of the biggest pros aside from the amazing location (and breathtaking sunsets) is the Garden Sleep System. You can self adjust both sides of the bed, so you and your hubby can sleep like babies. The property also offers made-to-order breakfast for the picky-eating preggo, a heated pool, and a complimentary shuttle to take you downtown to the quaint Carlsbad Village. And don’t fret, there's golfing nearby for the beau.
