With all this romance in the air, there's bound to be some babies in the making
Babymoons have experienced a recent surge in popularity. And honestly, what’s not to love? Offering the perfect opportunity to enjoy a luxurious holiday with your significant other—indulging in lazy beach days and spa sessions before sleepless nights and nappy changing take over—here are five of Asia’s best babymoon destinations:
1. Fusion Cam Ranh, Vietnam
Enjoy absolute privacy and limitless pampering at The Hideaway, Fusion Resort Cam Ranh’s new “resort within a resort”. Perched atop a pristine sand dune facing the ocean, The Hideaway’s secluded luxury pool villas are crafted from natural materials, with extra-plush bedding, custom bathtubs and breezy outdoor lounge space as standard.
Of course, the real draw is Fusion’s signature “all spa-inclusive” programme, which allows guests to indulge in unlimited treatments throughout their stay. Pregnancy-friendly options include mum-to-be massages, scrubs and reflexology treatments, along with facials, manicures and pedicures to ensure that you maintain your glow as you grow.
