Many days I just want to give up and quit. I admit I get tired. But then I think about how short life is and any life worth living is doing what makes you happy and at least trying. So I get up another day to fight.
The luxe kids and I have our eyes on visiting London in 2014. That is where they want to go. I have always wanted to go to London and I am looking forward to visiting this dynamic city.
London has fabulous hotels and Quintessential English hotels are offering fantastic Babymoon Getaways for expectant couples. If you don't know, a Babymoon is a last hurrah or vacay for Moms and Dads "to be" before the baby arrives and all hell breaks loose. LOL!
The Babymoon packages are offered at the 5 Star London The Draycott Hotel and the stunning Ellenborough Park and they are FABULOUS! Check them out:
Via Quitessential English Hotels,
The Draycott Hotel and Ellenborough Park are pleased to announce their new Royal Babymoon packages for expectant couples to celebrate, relax, and prepare for their blessed arrival in luxury. With this exclusive offer, guests will enjoy two nights at the Draycott Hotel in London, followed by a relaxing trip to the award-winning Cotswolds country house, Ellenborough Park. With Royal baby fever sweeping the globe, guests visiting the two properties will enjoy similarly regal treatment, without the undue media attention.
The Royal Babymoon experience begins with a weekend stay at the Draycott Hotel, nestled in the peaceful Cadogan Gardens-area of London. While the world waits with baited breath for the July due date of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s bundle of joy, couples may enjoy a relaxing two-night stay in one of the Draycott Hotel’s 35 beautifully appointed rooms. Lavishly steeped in Edwardian splendor with high ceilings and fireplaces, each suite is theatrically themed and individually decorated. Expectant mothers will appreciate the relaxation opportunities afforded by the comfortable seating area, as well as a king-sized bed replete with linens of the finest percale cotton.
The Draycott Hotel offers exceptional and highly personalized service, and the mom-to-be will feel like the Duchess of Cambridge herself as she is greeted with sparkling cider and roses upon arrival, while champagne will await her partner. After settling in, guests are encouraged to enjoy the Draycott’s close proximity to London’s best shopping destinations including King’s Road in Chelsea, where high fashion extends to the little ones.
After a day of hitting the shops for last minute baby purchases, the expectant mother will enjoy a relaxing prenatal massage in the comfort of her room. The couple will then celebrate one of their last night’s alone in style with a voucher to a local London restaurant before winding down for the night with ice cream service in their room. At the conclusion of their stay, guests will depart with a signature Draycott Teddy, a plush playmate eager to welcome their newest family member.
After two luxurious nights in the city, guests will take a short jaunt into the countryside to spend two weekday nights at Ellenborough Park, a country manor house hotel and spa located in the Cotswolds, just outside Cheltenham, England. The only five-star hotel in the Cotswolds, guests who stay atEllenborough Park will be greeted by English elegance and lavish amenities befitting royalty. The hotel boasts 60 bedrooms, with all interiors designed in a traditional yet sophisticated English country house style. The sprawling estate provides babymoon celebrants a tranquil backdrop ideal for relaxation and reflection, and Ellenborough Park will be happy to arrange for a local photographer to document this important time in a young couple’s family history on its beautiful grounds and property.
The first evening, the couple will enjoy dinner for two in the property’s exclusive Beaufort Dining Room. Head Chef David Kelman has created an á la carte menu for the restaurant, which includes a number of classic British dishes with a modern twist, featuring the best local ingredients. Guests will also enjoy a complementary full English breakfast each morning of their stay.
The couple will then enjoy a day of pampering at the spa at Ellenborough Park, with the mom-to-be enjoying an hour and 25 minute Pre-Natal Nourishing Body treatment. Her partner will receive their own aromatherapy massage, and is welcome to take in the many amenities the spa has to offer. While the expectant mother relaxes, her partner is also encouraged to engage in the various outdoor activities available near Ellenborough Park, including golf, polo, clay-pigeon shooting, and hiking. Guests also have exclusive access to the historic Cheltenham Racecourse, home to eight steeple chase races per year.
