        There’s that sweet spot during pregnancy, before the unpredictable hormones and swollen feet, when you’re finally past the morning sickness and starting to feel like taking a vacation. Herein lies the perfect time for a babymoon: your last romantic vacation as child-less parents. In just a few months, the idea of traveling will feel like a pipe dream while you’re busy creating your registry and preparing your nursery. Vacationing with kids will bring a new wave of options (think: all-inclusive resorts and family-friendly hotels). To take advantage of this short window (sometimes dubbed “the happy trimester”) is ideal, for it will be the last time you and your partner will get to enjoy the simple pleasure of traveling kid-free. The perfect babymoon destination provides a beautiful and quiet respite in some charming pocket of the world (quiet times are fleeting so we want you to make it count!) From private beachfront villas to sprawling views of the Tuscan countryside, we’ve narrowed down the 10 best babymoon destinations to get you started…

        Palm Heights, Grand Cayman, Caribbean

        If your idea of a babymoon destination includes a blissed-out week lounging on a beautiful beach in the Caribbean, sipping refreshing mocktails, eating healthy, and maybe hitting a yoga class or two, a stay at Palm Heights in Grand Cayman will certainly fulfill your fantasy. New York, Miami, Houston and Charlotte offer quick nonstop flights to the island, and a short drive to the hotel will lead you to this retro paradise situated right on Seven Mile Beach. The stylish design stretches from the property’s ocean view suites, into the pool, beach and all-day restaurant.

        Les Roches Blanches, Cassis, France

        A quaint fishing village set against the backdrop of the iconic limestone Calanques, Cassis is a welcome departure from the gaudy crowds of Saint-Tropez or Antibes. French locals escape to this Mediterranean retreat for its turquoise waters, charming old streets and fresh, local cuisine and wine (you can have a glass, we won’t tell!) Les Roches Blanches is the most beloved luxury hotel in Cassis, where they provide exceptional service, exquisite fine dining with optimal views of the Calanques, a Sisley spa, as well as direct access to the sea.

        Paradero, Todos Santos, Mexico

        Save the all-inclusive, kid-friendly Mexico resorts for when your little one arrives and consider exploring a more rustic side to Mexico for your romantic couple’s retreat. The new adults-only hotel Paradero is situated at the foot of the Sierra de la Laguna mountain range in Todos Santos, and while rustic charms are in abundance here, the property is a lesson in sustainable luxury at its best. The luxurious suites feature indoor/outdoor showers and terraces with hammocks, while upgraded suites contain open-air soaking tubs or private rooftop terraces. The hotel also features a chic open-air bar and restaurant, as well as 2 pools, a spa and cactus garden. Ask about the free guided hikes, gardening workshops and yoga classes.

        Esmé, Miami Beach, Florida

        Miami’s always a good idea, idea, and easily one of the best places for a babymoon. With its promise of sunshine, warm Latin influences and a burgeoning restaurant scene, there’s no better time to retreat to Miami for a sexy weekend getaway with your partner. Stay at the stylish new Esmé on Española Way, where you’ll be in walking distance to the beach and various shops and restaurants. Though you won’t need to go very far to eat well, as the hotel is host to some of Miami’s most buzzworthy new restaurants and bars, including El Salón, Bar Pinxto, Tropezón, as well as The Drexel (from the owners of the beloved Mandolin Aegean Bistro).

        Pasha, Santa Teresa, Costa Rica

        Costa Rica’s beloved bohemian surf town, Santa Teresa is an idyllic option if you’re seeking both a restorative and active getaway. Pasha, a brand new beachside luxury estate located steps away from Playa Hermosa, was formerly the owner’s private family home before opening it as a hotel in December of 2021. The staff is relegated to the head host, a private cook, security and housekeeping staff in order to ensure privacy and a casual atmosphere.

        The hotel features ten rooms– a four bedroom house, and three villas with plenty of areas optimal for lounging after a day out surfing.
