Looking for one more romantic getaway before the two of you become three? Jamaica is now offering several Babymoon packages aimed at parents-to-be:
Rose Hall, Montego Bay
Half Moon offers a custom five-night Babymoon package where mothers-to-be can train by learning special hair braiding techniques on the beach, while dads-to-be can learn to build a high chair or crib in the wood shop. Both parents-to-be will enjoy relaxing on the sandy crescent beaches dotted with palms, white washed cottages surrounded by fragrant gardens. While in the first trimester expecting mothers can swim with the dolphins.
This fall, the AAA Four Diamond Grand Lido Resorts & Spas in Jamaica are launching five-day “Babymoon” packages, designed to pamper and spoil parents-to-be with unique customized amenities.
Available from September 1, 2006, the four-night/five-day “Babymoon” packages start at $2,200 per couple, with accommodations in gracious suites, thoughtfully supplied with extra pillows for the comfort of expectant moms. First floor suites are also available on request. Doting husbands can take a break from late-night foraging errands, since in-room fridges are stocked daily with a jar of pickles and a chocolate bar, as well as soothing Ginger Ale and bottled water.
For urgent cravings that can’t be satisfied with a few bites, the in-room menu — available 24/7 — comes to the rescue offering luscious desserts, such as, banana split, brownie a la mode, and hot fudge sundae.
While moms enjoy a specialized in-room manicure and pedicure in their well-ventilated patio or balcony, dads can hit the gym for a 30-minute personal training session to develop and strengthen their upper body in preparation for the bundle of joy – and the accompanying baby gear.
Alone time is key in babymoon vacations, and couples can look forward to plenty of romance at Grand Lido Resorts & Spas. Relax and unwind together with a rejuvenating couples foot massage, dine over a candlelit dinner at the elegant Piacere restaurant, and reserve a hammock on the beach for cuddling time at sunset.
Babymoon packages start at $2,200 per couple, land only, and include the amenities described above. An added bonus for stays of five nights or longer is an additional spa credit of up to $350 per room. Babymooners enjoy all the benefits of a Super-Inclusive luxury vacation, including: accommodations; fine dining; 24-hour room service; land and water sports; complimentary golf; complimentary manicures and pedicures; entertainment; dry cleaning; hotel taxes; airport transfers; and even tips.
