So, you’re expecting? Congratulations!! There’s a lot to get organized between doctor’s appointments, making plans for work, and building your nursery, not to mention getting mentally prepared for your new arrival. While you might be looking to reduce your to-do list, there’s one thing I’d definitely recommend you keep as a top priority – a babymoon. The idea of planning. your Hawaii babymoon might feel daunting. We’re going to try to help you out a bit in this post!
‘Babymoon’ is the term for a relaxing or romantic holiday before your baby is born and is something that has recently grown in popularity as individuals and couples mindfully enter parenthood.
The focus when planning your Hawaii babymoon should be reconnecting, relaxing, and celebrating this milestone in your life/lives together. Like all things in pregnancy, what you do on your babymoon will be personal to you. But if you’re looking for inspiration I’ve shared below advice and recommendations for planning the perfect babymoon – an island escape to Hawaii. Let us help you plan your babymoon on Hawaii.
A piece of advice you’ll hear regularly during pregnancy is to relax. With busy lives and so much to do in preparation for your new arrival, that can be challenging.
With many stunning beaches across the island, Hawaii offers plenty of opportunities for relaxing days at the beach. Want to make it super relaxing? Why not book a hotel with a beachfront, such as the Mauna Lani Auberge which offers access to a beautiful white sandy beach, only a few paces from your room.
Your babymoon should be a celebration of this milestone in your life and relationship. And with this, you might want to treat yourself to a stay at a luxury hotel.
Hawaii has many 5-star and luxury hotels to choose from. For your babymoon, consider a hotel that offers an adults-only pool, such as the Four Seasons Hualalai. Want that extra touch of luxury? Why not book yourself a private cabana at the Four Seasons’ Beach Tree Pool.
Things in life will change once the baby arrives. Some of the things you may currently take for granted such as meals out could become a little more challenging – initially anyway. So take the opportunity on your babymoon to eat really well, and enjoy and value the uninterrupted time together.
In Hawaii, there are lots of incredible restaurants. For a truly intimate and personalized experience, consider hiring a private chef as part of a stay at Puakea Ranch. The team can arrange this for you as well as any groceries you might want on arrival, making your stay feel like a home from home, with a little added luxury.
There will never be another moment like this in your life/lives together. It’s so important, therefore, to celebrate and document this time. While on your island escape, you’ll be relaxed, reconnected, and refreshed, so what better opportunity to book a maternity photo session?
