A baby moon in Koh Samui

IMG_3334

I’m not sure where the “baby moon” idea came from or even if many expecting parents take them but I have to say, I’m a big fan. Simply put it’s some special time away with just you and your other half before baby arrives and life is turned upside down and inside out – in a good way of course!

Ozdane and I decided to go to Koh Samui, Thailand for a long weekend for some rest and relaxtion together for our baby moon. Less than two hours from Singapore makes it one of the perfect get-away destinations. Some were probably suprised we didn’t choose Bali which is usually our go-to spot but it was nice to go somewhere different for this occassion.

During our time in Koh Samui we stayed at the exquisite Four Seasons Koh Samui Resort and we literally never left the property. There was no need to leave since everything we wanted for our blissful time away was at our fingertips. I think the most active thing I did the entire time was walk up some stairs to meet the buggy to take us to the spa. Yes, hard work I know.

I can’t say enough about how impressed I was with the resort. Upon arrival we were surprised with an upgrade to a large beach villa right on the beach with the largest, private pool I’ve ever seen in a one-bedroom villa. Thank you beautiful universe! We fell asleep to the sound of the waves. We spent plenty of time lounging on our huge daybed in our outdoor living room area or taking a dip in our refreshing pool or the ocean which was just steps away. The service was outstanding and the Thai people are always such a pleasure. We definitely will be going back to the Four Seasons Koh Samui and the next time with Baby P. in tow.
