Fodor’s has been the expert on travel for almost 100 years and the travel advisors there have caught babymoon fever just like you. This list of 10 best babymoon destinations features resorts that make special accommodations for parents-to-be that include couples and prenatal massages and some of the best cuisine in the world lavishly prepared and served without alcohol or raw seafood.
Enjoy a beach vacation without the alcohol and seafood.
- Aqualina Resort & Spa on the Beach, Sunny Isles Beach, Miami, Florida
Leave the wild party scene behind in South Beach when you escape to the Acqualina’s giant oceanfront spa that features treatments specially designed for mothers-to-be. After hands-on pampering, enjoy a romantic dinner for two at one of three oceanfront restaurants.
- Buttermilk Falls Inn & Spa, Milton, New York
Escape to a quaint inn or private cottage where all things eco-friendly and organic abound. The “power plate” breakfast of avocado, eggs, quinoa, and veggies gets the day off to a healthy start.
- Cotton Tree, Grand Cayman
If the gourmet kitchen in your own private beach-side cottage doesn’t spell indulgence your way, have a chef come to your cottage and create dinner for two. A private beach, nature-inspired spa treatments, and an open-air pavilion perfect for catching ocean breezes make life in the hectic city a distant memory.
- Jamaica Inn, Ocho Rios, Jamaica
How could rooms decorated in soothing blues and whites, private verandas, the sound of waves crashing into the cliffs below, spa treatments made from local organic ingredients, and moonlight couples massages get any more hedonistic? Here’s how: you won’t find a clock, radio, or TV anywhere in your private oceanside retreat.
- La Quinta Resort & Club, La Quinta, California
A retro feel and modern amenities amidst Spanish Colonial architecture makes this 45-acre resort feel inviting in spite of its remote location. Casitas with fireplaces and private patios provide the perfect retreat after a day of spa-style pampering.
- Moana Surfrider, Waikiki Beach, Honolulu, Hawaii
Cast your worries out to sea, literally, at this gorgeous plantation-style resort on a gorgeous tropical beach. It’s paradise Hawaiian-style.
- Royal Palms Resort & Spa, Phoenix, Arizona
The Babymoon Bliss package here is all about bliss for parents and baby, too. Room services cater to moms’ cravings, dads get cognac and cigars, baby bumps get immortalized by a professional photographer, and everybody goes home with a baby-size bathtub filled with treats new parents will appreciate.
- Sundara Inn & Spa, Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin
Organics, Ayurvedics, pine forests, and special treats for soon-to-be parents make this conveniently located in an enticing escape when rest and relaxation top the agenda.
- Sugar Beach, Soufrieres, St. Lucia
One glimpse of the snow-white powdery beaches and you’ll know where Sugar Beach got its name. Romp through the treetops to the Rainforest Spa before taking a private plunge into a pool or luxurious four-poster bed.
- White Elephant, Nantucket, Massachusetts
Afternoon cheese trays, morning pastries, cigars wrapped in baby-colored ribbons, courtesy cars for exploring the town, and umbrellas for the beach are just a few of the amenities that make the White Elephant a memorable way to enjoy becoming a parent.
