Before you’re up all night and knee-deep in diapers, bottles and pacifiers, take a babymoon — a vacation meant for the mom and dad to relax and enjoy some special — and private — time together before this big change in a tiny package arrives. Here are three babymooning packages perfect for any expectant couple.
Trump International Hotel & Tower New York
Live like a queen and king with Royal Heir Babymoon Package at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Trump International Hotel & Tower New York. In addition to two-nights in a city view suite or park view suite, the package includes two 60-minute massages — one for the partner and, of course, a pre-natal massage for the mom-to-be. One breakfast either in your room or downstairs at Nougatine by Jean-Georges is included as well. Indulge in the twice-daily treat of a special tea, mocktail or smoothie prepared especially for moms-in-mind. And while the pre-natal pillows placed in your room are an excellent nicety, the three cherries on top are the $1,000 gift cards: one for Neiman Marcus, one to Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry and the third to FAO Schwarz.
Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach
If golden sand and gorgeous weather sounds like your way to relax before baby, the Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach’s Babymoon Package will let you do just that. While the Five-Star resort’s location right along the Atlantic Ocean and picturesque pool surrounded by gardens and the tropical palm trees will help you unwind, the extras with the package — including a chef’s amenity brought to your room each day of your stay and a prenatal pillow — sweeten the deal. And along with these amenities and a stay in a tropical, yet refined, guest room, you’ll get a 50-minute prenatal massage (or $150 in spa credit if you want to opt for other treatments), $100 dining credit for room service or at any of the restaurants, and one in-room movie.
The Dorchester and 45 Park Lane
If you’re across the pond, The Dorchester Collection of London hotels (including the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star The Dorchester and Five-Star 45 Park Lane) is celebrating the anticipated birth of the Duchess of Cambridge by offering other expectant mothers the Royal Babymoon package. Pick your place to stay — one of the 14 new Dorchester Suites, one of the eight new Park Suites at The Dorchester or the Penthouse Suite at 45 Park Lane — and you’ll receive a bounty of goodies from custom in-room snacks for those pregnancy cravings to a pedicure and manicure with a hand and foot massage. Dine on a menu created by the chef just for the mother-to-be, learn to make organic baby food in a cooking class, explore the nearby baby shops from a concierge-curated list, and relax with the prenatal massage and a therapeutic massage for the soon-to-be dads (and receive a 10 percent discount on other spa and salon treatments). In your room, you’ll find a special pillow just for expectant mothers, a selection of movies to enjoy for a night in and a bubble bath complete with fragrant oils, relaxing music, a book and more for the ultimate unwinding experience. You’ll also be able to checkout late, for a bit more rest. On top of all that, the cutest addition to the package is the onesie for the new baby that reads “I’d Rather Be at The Dorchester.” Once the baby arrives, use the voucher for the Coworth Park Kids Club, which has games, books and activities in a supervised area.
