Your first pregnancy can be a magical time, and more and more couples are making the most of this special time by scheduling a holiday together before the baby arrives – otherwise known as babymoons.
What to look for in a ‘babymoon’
The babymoon is an opportunity for a last hurrah of sumptuous, grown-up living before you enter the exciting world of life with a baby. In other words it can be a time to indulge in the finer things – a luxury beach resort, spa treatments, romantic moments, and divine dining.
With locations across the Indian Ocean, Constance Hotels & Resorts are proving a popular choice for a secluded 5* getaway for just the two of you. With our emphasis on warm, attentive service we ensure that your last trip away pre-parenthood will create memories that last a lifetime, and many a baby-induced sleepless night.
Make it a romantic break for two
Savour your time together in the romantic getaway resorts of Moofushi and Tsarabanjina. Relax in the laidback vibe of these barefoot resorts where secluded hammocks swing outside your villa and it’s easy to find a quiet spot to spend time alone together.
Lounge on the beach watching movies under the stars and eating food fresh from the ocean.
If you’re looking for total romantic seclusion why not try a hillside villa at Ephelia, where you can lounge in your own infinity pool overlooking glorious views of the Seychelles.
Indulge in 5* luxury
It can be difficult to get a good night’s sleep when you’re pregnant but at Constance we will do our best to ensure that’s exactly what you get.
At Le Prince Maurice and Halaveli we will draw you a fragrant candlelit bath for you to relax in before climbing between Egyptian cotton sheets, in vast beds. Select the perfect pillow from our menu. If getting comfortable is an issue just let us know and we’ll provide as many pillows as you need to get a good night’s sleep.
Service has always been at the centre of what we do at Constance so whatever you’re needs, or cravings, we’ll do our best to make sure you have everything you need for a perfect holiday.
Delicious, healthy food
Eating for two means making sure that what you eat is fresh and healthy for you and your baby. At Constance the 5* chefs use only the best, fresh local ingredients to create sumptuous dishes across all our restaurants.
Whether you want to indulge in elegant fine dining or just feel like a smoothie and salad by the beach, you can be sure that everything is prepared with the utmost care from the very best fresh ingredients.
For a truly memorable dining experience we can even organise dinner on a secluded section of beach or under the stars in your own villa. At Moofushi you can dine by torchlight on your own secluded sandbank.
