We’re seeing increasing numbers of mums-to-be to heading off on one last holiday hurrah before taking the proverbial bun out of the oven (oh, if only it was that easy).

Such a holiday has rather aptly been named 'the babymoon'. It's a time to sit back, relax and let someone else look after you for a precious while… the calm before the storm as it were. Think pampering at a luxury spa hotel, a final foodie adventure (this is one of the last times you'll be able to legitimately stuff your face with goodies under the guise of 'eating for two'), or even a spot of culture before you swap city guides for bedtime stories and museums for Dora the Explorer.

We've handpicked our favourite destinations for the perfect babymoon.

Original Thinking

We know the best places to have a big holiday before the big day.

Rosie, Original Traveller

Where to go

Palm Trees Amidst Rocky Outcrops at Wadi Shab

Oman

A wonderful destination combining beautiful beachfront properties and dramatic mountain and desert landscapes to explore.

Amalfi Coast View, Italy

The Amalfi Coast

Enjoy fine food, cliffs, coves, and hilltop towns such as Positano or Amalfi, in one of Europe's most romantic destinations

Peloponnese

Peloponnese

Few, if any, destinations have had as significant an impact on the Western psyche and vocabulary as the Peloponnese peninsula in south-western Greece.

The Alentejo

The Alentejo

The Alentejo is home to beautiful cork oak forests, rural countryside and elegant wine estates and with a mild climate it's an ideal location to visit all year round.

Santorini

Santorini

Crescent-shaped Santorini is perhaps the most famous Greek island, and physically one of the most spectacular islands in the world, with its giant sea-filled caldera created by an ancient volcanic eruption.

Palms Against Blue Sky in the Canary Islands

Canary Islands

Yes, that's right. The Canary Islands. Cast aside those preconceptions and head to one of Europe's most pleasant surprises.

Caribbean

Caribbean

Original Travel knows the region well, and can recommend the highlights from the best bars in Havana to the best dive sites in the British Virgin Islands, and everything in between.

Lavender Fields

Provence & the Cote D'Azur

Brigitte Bardot first popularised the bikini on the beaches of the Cote d'Azur, and close by but a world away, Van Gogh and Cézanne drew inspiration from the landscapes of Provence inland.

The rolling Tuscan hills in the mist

Tuscany

Historic towns and cities, peaceful county retreats and outstanding regional cuisine - Tuscany has got the lot.

Town of Sardinia

Sardinia

Sardinia's north-eastern coast is impossibly glamorous and home to seriously luxurious hotels, whilst the rest of the Island is relatively untouched.

Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi

With an almost guaranteed 300 days of sunshine a year, Abu Dhabi is the ideal winter break destination.

Dubai

Dubai

Shop the souqs and the malls, stay in a luxury hotel and enjoy water sports and a desert safari.

Puglia

Puglia

Puglia, on the heel of Italy's boot, is a destination apart, both culturally and geographically.

Bright Flowers in Front of a Church in Coastal Andalucia

Coastal Andalucia

Welcome to the Sunshine Coast. (Sounds better than the Costa del Sol).

Madeira

Madeira

Great for walking and hiking and catching some late autumn or early spring sunshine within easy reach of the UK.

Rock formations Bermuda

Bermuda

Famous for its rose tinted beaches, shorts and year-round good climate, Bermuda is a good alternative to European summer sun.

A Gnarled Tree in Musandam

Musandam Peninsula

The Musandam Peninsula is an exclave of Oman, cut off from the rump of the country by the UAE.

The Gardens of a Muscat Mosque

Muscat

The Omani capital is home to some of the most luxurious hotels in the Middle East.

View of the sea from Hotel Raya, Sicily

Sicily & the Aeolian Islands

An extraordinary diversity of sights in one small area, from the classical ruins and beaches of Sicily to the volcanic outcrops of the Aeolian Islands.
