The babymoon is the new honeymoon. Well, at least for us it is. Where the honeymoon offers a respite from the exhaustion of planning a wedding, the babymoon is typically your quiet time before the exhaustion of becoming a new parent.
Thankfully, luxury hotels have caught on and created blissful babymoon experiences for soon-to-be parents. The Ritz Carlton is one in particular and their babymoon package doesn’t skip a (luxurious) beat.
Our trip commenced upon arriving at the beautiful and cozy Ritz Carlton Georgetown. Your immediately greeted with a care package that contains a special baby gift, local shopping discounts, and even a booklet on popular baby names. Apparently, membership baby-making has it’s privileges.
After settling in and refreshing in our suite, we were invited for cocktails and light fare in the Ritz’s new outdoor space, dubbed “The Yard”. While my husband sampled the the myriad, I had a taste of their great light bites (I plan to return for cocktails straight from the delivery room. In the meantime, I and can attest that the non-alcoholic drinks are quite good).
Being pregnant is tiring and can make you always long for bed. We returned to our room, and much to our delight, the turn down service had turned our room into a romantic haven with flowers on the bed and a special treat. They also provided extra king size pillows to help with making that growing belly comfortable.
Great sleep and great food are key to having a happy pregnancy and the Ritz’s room service menu had everything I was craving. The French toast, crispy fries, and custom-omelette will satisfy any pregnant palette. In my case, fresh fruit and fries is what I have been craving most!
The Ritz recently expanded their spa and their babymoon package includes a much needed massage for mom’s to be. Their massage was 80 minutes of heaven perfect for attaining that mommy glow!
For those of you thinking about your own babymoons or a gift for a mom-to-be you know it will be the greatest gift to welcome their bundle of joy!
Thank you Ritz for such an amazing stay!
Special thanks to the Ritz Carlton for partnering in this post.
