Steal This Look: babymoon getaway ideas

Babymoon, The Last Hurrah…

Sippy cups, bibs and sleepless nights are right around the corner. The second trimester is probably the last time expecting parents will have to take a trip together. A babymoon can be a great opportunity for parents-to-be to focus on their relationship, reconnect as a couple before entering into parenthood and simply relax. Squeeze in as much couple time as you can before junior makes his grand entrance. Here’s just one hotel that offers a babymoon promotion…

STEAL THIS LOOK
Though redecorating your house is probably the last thing on your mind, you will probably pick up some decorating ideas while you stay at any of these stylish hotels. Make a mental note of what you like for when you’re ready to recreate the look in your own home.

The Westin

The Lounge Comfortable yet subdued in palette, the hotel’s lobby is decorated with oversized armchairs to create a swanky ambiance.
The Danity chair by Klaussner Furniture shows how it’s suppose to be done by being sophisticated yet stylish. High fashion mixed with comfort, the Danity collection fills any room with a look that makes your guest want to relax in style. The bench seat and multi pillow backs are filled with down blend and offer the plushness anyone would desire.

The Lobby The heart of the hotel is its airy and comfortable lobby, where guests relax as if they were in their own living room thanks to plush sofas and ottomans.
The Cartagena modular outdoor set from Zuo is the perfect solution for your patio or terrace. The weave is a UV treated synthetic with a reinforced interior aluminum tube frame. This curvaceous collection has looks and comfort.

The Bedroom Marble floors grace a large parlor with a comfortable seating area facing a wall of glass overlooking the ocean that opens to an enormous balcony with private lounge chairs. The sleek master bedroom is furnished with a king bed and a variety of handmade ceramics and other original artwork.
The Stanley Hudson Street Panel Bed is constructed of maple solids with walnut veneers. Stately in appearance and suggesting refined urban living, the bed imbues a sophisticated charm upon any bedroom. Finial-adorned round bed posts brace a solid hardwood headboard and footboard that feature slat detailing, while an intricately carved oval wood grill across the width of the headboard is the bed’s most distinguishing feature and one that provides strong visual appeal.

Babymoon 101
WHEN TO GO During the second trimester you’ll be feeling less queasy, less lethargic and less huge. Plus, chances are your libido will also be cooperating.
WHERE TO GO Far away and exotic might not be the best idea. Being on a plane for more than four hours can be tough on the best of situations and particularly so on a preggo body. Plus this is not the time to deal with vaccines.
DESTINATION It should go without saying that the whole point of this trip it to relax. So do without an urban getaway where the focus is on cultural offerings (read, lots of walking and getting in and out of taxis). If your second semester happens to be during the winter months, a beach getaway could be a great treat. In fall, a New England B&B ain’t bad.
WHAT’S UP DOC Before booking your ticket, tell your doctor of your plans. Mention where you’re going (i.e. if your trip is on a Caribbean island, do you know what types of fish you should avoid?), what you’ll be doing (is snorkeling OK?), how long your flight is (what in-flight exercises are recommended?).

SPEAK UP Are you planning a last getaway before baby arrives? Or have you been on a babymoon? What what the destination? We’d love to hear about your babymoon experience or planning.
