The Ultimate Babymoon Getaway
6 days from £2,200 per person
This Babymoon itinerary is perfect for parents-to-be looking for some R&R and pampering before the birth. Indulgent, relaxing and romantic, this itinerary is sure to leave you feeling rejuvenated and stress-free before your due date.
Start your babymoon on a high at Europe’s tallest building, The Shard. Check into your sky-high room at the Shangri-La with knockout views over the capital’s gorgeous twinkling lights; this evening glam it up with mocktails at Aqua Shard’s famous bar, followed by panoramic cityscapes and delectable fine-dining Chinese cuisine at Hutong.
Just an hour’s drive from London, The Four Seasons Hampshire is the perfect place to escape the city for some countryside luxury and traditional British pastimes. Once you’ve breathed in the fresh country air and explored this grand estate, indulge in some pampering treatments at the Four Seasons spa. Enjoy dips in the magnificent heated Conservatory Pool and unwind in the heated outdoor vitality pool with its water-massage features. Dine at The Bistro or Seasons Restaurant for fresh seasonal fare, pick a fireside table at the chic Bar 1086, or eat out on the terrace if the weather is nice. To really push the boat out, take a leisurely cruise through the estate on a vintage canal boat and enjoy a romantic candle-lit dinner on board, just the two of you!
Next, head into the New Forest to stay at Lime Wood, which, with its crowd-pleasing combination of sumptuous luxury and homely atmosphere, is a guaranteed delight. Enjoy a full day relaxing at this award-winning hotel: take advantage of its Herb House Spa and outdoor and indoor steaming hot pool, don some wellies for a walk in the surrounding forest, or nest down with a DVD or book from their extensive library. Treat yourselves to fine-dining cuisine (often using foraged food) by head chef Angela Hartnett. The following day, a private guide and driver will take you on a tour of the New Forest, passing by grand country house hotels and charming cottages dotted within the forest. A National Park with the last remaining open pasture land in the UK, the New Forest’s landscape is ruggedly beautiful and roaming with wild ponies. Stop for lunch at The Pig, a warm and gorgeous 'restaurant-with-rooms’.
Crown off your 5-star babymoon at one of the world’s most phenomenal hotels, The Corinthia, which has the largest spa in London. Set over 4 floors it features a Daniel Galvin hair salon, resident acupuncturist and heavenly relaxation rooms filled with elegant white armchairs set around sleek open fireplaces. If there’s ever a time to treat yourself to the loveliest room, surely it’s when you’re pregnant! For an unbeatable end to your babymoon upgrade to the Musician’s Penthouse Suite; set over 2 floors, it has a stunning private terrace with unparalleled views stretching across London from the London Eye to St Paul’s Cathedral.
