Babymoons, considered relaxing and romantic getaways often taken by expectant couples before their baby is born, is a growing trend abroad and has since fast gained momentum in South Africa.
For expectant parents, the arrival of their newborn would be incomplete without a pre-baby getaway to relish the calm before the high demands of parenthood. Emerging from its popularity among ‘A-listed’ celebrities, babymoons have spurred significant interest in the parenting world, highly recommending that parents-to-be consider time-out before the new arrival. A simple internet search will yield many destinations that are dedicated to babymoons, each suggesting the perfect escape to relax and unwind before the baby arrives. However, locals need not board a plane or travel hours to enjoy the relaxation and romance of a babymoon escape.
Retreat To Durban
Responding to the emergent trend, Suncoast Towers Hotel has tailored a bespoke babymoon package catering to every whim of moms-to-be, while creating the perfect setting for the couple to unwind and reconnect. Golden beaches, sub-tropical breezes and the sun-kissed lush and serene landscape that is synonymous with Durban’s coast paired with the luxurious comforts of Suncoast Towers Hotel make for an ideal retreat.
Awake to the sun cascading across the ocean and picturesque sights of Durban’s Golden Mile from any of the Suncoast Towers Hotel’s 37 luxurious rooms.
