Babymoon in Bermuda


Last week we took a quick little Babymoon to Bermuda before I need to stop flying.  It's crazy to think that our next trip we'll have a baby with us!  Bermuda is just under a two hour flight from here and only one hour ahead so it made for an easy trip.  The last time we'd been there was in April and the weather was much different - hot and humid this time but we lucked out - no rain, all sun and great beach/pool days.

There was hardly anything planned so it was a very relaxing trip!  Much of what I wore was non-maternity other than a dress or two and a bathing suit/coverup.  We stayed at the Hamilton Princess right in the town of Hamilton and it had just undergone a huge renovation so the property was so pretty.  The highlight was the pool which looked right over the marina.


As soon as we made it through customs and to the hotel we got changed right away and headed straight to the pool.  We stayed put there until a little after 7:00 - usually we aren't out that late in the sun - so it was a great way to start off the trip.  They had the best sparkling beach lemonade which was a great treat to enjoy.


For dinner that night we kept things simple and didn't leave the hotel by eating outside at 1609 with great live music and a nice breeze.  


To kick off our first full day we slept in and it was fantastic! After some balcony time and reading it was off to the spa for the best hour - massages.  


The jitney heads to the beach club every half hour so we grabbed the first one out after we were done at the spa.  It was so peaceful as it wasn't crowded so after picking a couple beach chairs we grabbed lunch at the restaurant then enjoyed the rest of the afternoon enjoying - relaxing in our chairs in the shade, swimming, playing on the hammocks, and rock climbing/paddle boarding for Derek.  

We finished off the afternoon back at the hotel for a few hours complete with a pool side nap.


One restaurant we loved from our last trip was the Waterlot Inn at the Fairmont's other property so on this night we headed over there early to enjoy time on the dock first and then have a great dinner.  

I haven't set foot in a steakhouse since I was about 5 weeks pregnant as I've had an aversion to steak but my scallops were great, the steakhouse sides were delicious as always and the sea salt carmel chocolates at the end of the meal were the highlight - we may or may not have asked for some extras to take back to the hotel with us.

  9. Gorgeous pics! Yay for one last getaway before little man arrives. Bermuda is the perfect babymoon spot! We cruised there last year for ours, and were docked for a few days to enjoy the island. We chose it because they don't have mosquitos so no Zika! Glad you were able to enjoy the steakhouse with your scallops, and you can't beat the amazing water there <3
