Babymoons have recently grown in popularity thanks to the countless celebrities posting their luxurious getaways on social media. Now the biggest event of any pregnancy (bar the birth, of course), babymoons take the utmost precedence over the traditional baby shower. Whether you want to jet off to the other side of the world for some last minute relaxation, or you want to stay relatively close to home – make sure you do it in nothing but luxury.
Grace Santorini, Santorini, Greece
If your idea of the perfect babymoon features jaw-dropping views over the Aegean Sea, iconic whitewash buildings contrasting against clear blue seas and stunning sunsets, then Grace Santorini is the place for you. Book your stay in The Villa and you will get a panoramic view of the famous sunset, as well as your very own private spa, heated swimming pool and outside fireplace.
Take part in a sunset cruise to drink in the sights and have lunch and dinner on private beaches or enjoy a hillside dinner with a view. Everything in Santorini, picturesque, beautiful and calming – the ideal place to relax before the little one comes along.
Il Sereno, Lake Como, Italy
The Penthouse Suit in the iconic Il Sereno Hotel boasts a private terrace complete with hot tub, perfect for relaxing on the day beds and taking in the breathtaking views of the lake.
Whilst there take a boat trip to nearby Bellagio, for high-end boutique shopping, fine dining, and top quality gelato.
Highly-acclaimed Milan-based designer Patricia Urquiola has ensured that Il Sereno is a step ahead of the current hotels in the Lake Como area with high contemporary style, moving away from the Faux Renaissance style which is traditional in the Italian Lakes.
Sugar Beach, St Lucia
Relax on this luxurious Caribbean island and enjoy the bright white sands of the beaches, the stunning natural beauty of the island and the sheer excellence of the food on offer.
The Sugar Mill Luxury Room will give you exactly what it says, sheer luxury. A four poster bed with Egyptian cotton sheets, a plunge pool and your very own walled garden are exactly what mums-to-be need to ensure they are at their most relaxed. Add to this the Mums-to-be spa treatment and both mother and baby will be transported to paradise, even though they are already in paradise in St Lucia.
Six Senses, Koh Samui, Thailand
Enjoy the split-level living in the Ocean Front Pool Villa Suite, which includes stunning views over the Gulf of Thailand, a luxurious outdoor shower and a beautiful pool deck, perfect for relaxing before your due date!
Indulge in a boat trip around the island at sunset for quite possibly the best views you will ever see or take part in a Thai cooking class and make delicious meals for yourself under the watchful eye of an expert chef.
At the end of a busy day exploring, head to the spa and enjoy the extensive range of treatments and therapies available.
Cape Weligama, Sri Lanka
What better way to prepare for a baby than to immerse yourself in the local culture from the comfort of your own mini library in the Prestige Ocean View Villa in your own piece of Sri Lankan paradise.
Whilst in Sri Lanka, indulge in the Cape Whale Safari, a luxury safari through the Indian Ocean to discover magnificent blue whales and dolphins. Enjoy both breakfast and lunch onboard the 50ft Catamaran and kick back and relax on the sun deck whilst taking in the breathtaking beauty.
Back at the hotel relax by what has been described by the best infinity pool in Sri Lanka which curves around the Cape’s summit and allows you to take in the stunning views.
