Expecting, Your last Getaway before Baby's Birth: Think 'BabyMoon'
While writing a piece on the U2 Hotel, The Clarence (Dublin), I found out that as part of their Spa treatments they offered a Mums To Be Pre Natal Massage.
This led me to BabyMoon which they suggested for more Expecting Mothers options.
The idea behind BabyMoon is to offer a last getaway, a 'honeymoon' like vacation for expecting parents before baby's arrival.
The company partnered with a number of high-end hotels and resorts around the world to offer packages that include amongst other things (I quote) "unlimited
complimentary in-room movies, late check-out, cravings bag, foodie
treats, cigars and sport massages for dad-to-be, pregnancy massage for
mom-to-be and non-alcoholic cockails. Or go on a shopping spree with a
personal shopper to show you all the beautiful baby boutiques"...
I especially noted the Kempinski Hotel Giardino di Costanza in Sicily (an hour from Palermo), Elounda Gulf Villas & Suites in Greece, as for Thailand, Six Senses Hideaway Yao Noi sounds great. Closer to me the Mandarin Oriental, New York and on the West Coast, the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa Agave (Scottsdale, Arizona).
Looking for something a little more scrumptious or fun, try the Sweet Chocolate Massage Package for Two at The Westin Valencia.
If you tried Baby Moon feel free to share your impressions. Maybe you used similar services, let us know.
