We looked long together with difficult to discovery the perfect house to rest together with nosotros were really happy amongst our choices. We knew nosotros wanted to rest inward Seminyak the entire fourth dimension every bit most of the beaches are there. There is to a greater extent than sight seeing to produce close Ubud, but nosotros were to a greater extent than oftentimes than non only interested inward relaxing past times the beach. 

H5N1 individual puddle was what nosotros wanted to a greater extent than from our villa, thence both places had totally individual pools. The commencement house nosotros stayed for the commencement one-half of our honeymoon was The Ahimsa, this villa was super romantic together with almost the whole villa was outdoors, other than the bedroom. We had chefs come upward together with railroad train us breakfast every morn inward our kitchen. We also had dinner cooked for us 1 nighttime together with they decorated the villa beautifully.

The keen affair nearly Bali is that in that location are many halal places to eat. Plus, most of these places direct keep the tastiest mocktails, since they desire to cater to muslims.

This included Egyptian Foot Cleansing, Gold Infused Royal Massage, Precious Stone Alignment, Genuine Pearl Facial, Crown Therapy, Cleopatra Milk Bath together with was inward the individual suite. We preferred to produce the Black Moroccan Herbal Bath instead of the Cleopatra Milk Bath since nosotros weren’t comfortable amongst wasting milk. We also got the massages inward dissimilar rooms thence that Irfan was amongst a manful mortal masseuse together with I was amongst a female. The staff were amazing amongst letting us brand a few changes together with were really accommodating to our religious needs.

A Babymoon Inward Greece

The give-and-take babymoon is a newer affair in addition to some people loathe it, some people love it. Mr. Beau in addition to I own got discussed a lot that simply because nosotros are having a baby, our life is non ending in addition to it volition non hold upwards the final fourth dimension nosotros ever larn to own got a vacation alone. However, nosotros both produce know that our life is ready to modify inwards a large agency in addition to it won’t hold upwards every bit slow to own got a vacation alone. So dorsum inwards Dec when I constitute out I was pregnant, it was the middle of black in addition to chilly days hither inwards London in addition to I had him hope to me that earlier infant arrived, nosotros would larn on a holiday, simply the 2 of us, somewhere amongst a beach, hot, sunny in addition to relaxing…..OK, this is precisely what y’all depict as, a babymoon. Throughout my pregnancy nosotros both had a crazy busy function schedule in addition to nosotros moved flat, thence mid June nosotros constitute a cute identify inwards Hellenic Republic in addition to packed our bags for a few days past times the water, in addition to it was perfect. Our infant Moon inwards Greece….
{yep, thats me in addition to my real large vii calendar month bump amongst my bikini in addition to embrace upwards from Accessorize. Finding cute motherhood swimwear that doesn’t cost a fortune, non easy. Hmmmm plenty close that, how non bad is that wall!} 
Criteria for our larn away were a few things. We didn’t desire to pass a fortune. We wanted to larn somewhere the flying would hold upwards less in addition to thence 4 hours. It had to hold upwards sunny in addition to a beach closed by. The final affair was, at that topographic point had to hold upwards piffling to do. Funny right? But it was true. We thence ofttimes are busy busy when nosotros are hither inwards London in addition to nosotros wanted to simply read in addition to consume in addition to relax in addition to that was it. After having my pump assault Santorini, I decided that the millions of steps throughout the isle were in all likelihood non thence non bad for a vii calendar month important lady. Not only that but the amazing cave homes did non own got a beach inside a brusque walking distance. So subsequently a lot of searching I stumbled upon this wonderful spot, Ekies All Senses Resort, in addition to absolutely loved it. It was rated i of Conde Nast Traveller’s Best European Beach Resorts. I idea for sure it would hold upwards out of our toll range, but shockingly it was affordable in addition to less in addition to thence a 4 sixty minutes flying from London. You wing into Thessaloniki straight off in addition to nosotros in addition to thence rented a machine amongst a real slow sixty minutes in addition to a one-half drive to Vourvourou Bay inwards the North East surface area of Greece. Being vii months pregnant I was worried close a large journeying in addition to this was super easy. 

 The decor throughout the 69 room resort is uncomplicated but stylish. I could own got sat exterior on the pillow covered patio slice of furniture all day. The eating seat that serves an amazing breakfast but too a delicious dinner is a mix of Tom Dixon gilded lite fixtures, marble tabletop in addition to garden mode chairs, I loved it! You tin read to a greater extent than close the pattern over here
There were blooming bloom bushes all over the resort amongst Sun coming inwards in addition to I simply couldn’t larn plenty of it! 
 We ate breakfast daily at the hotel in addition to well, I ate similar a happy expecting mama. Bowls of yummy yogurt that I drizzled amongst local flavoured olive oils. Lavender, pine, rosemary, mixed amongst honey, it was delicious. Sitting past times the beach amongst a homemade Greek donut was something I got real purpose to! The i affair that the hotel did non own got was decaffeinated coffee, thence for a important adult woman I was a fleck bummed in addition to brought my ain amongst me every morning, but that would hold upwards a piffling proposition counting that I saw multiple expectant moms at the resort. 
After a actually exhausting forenoon breakfast nosotros normally constitute ourselves chairs in addition to an umbrella in addition to camped out past times the beach for many hours. The hammock inwards the sea was my favorite, completely relaxing! {I SWORE I would never part pictures of my naked belly, good this is it, me inwards the hammock, soaking inwards every 2nd of Sun I could}. 
I produce similar to hollo that the resort had a lot of immature families, thence it was non a couples only, tranquillity hotel. However, nosotros were never bothered past times the kids, perchance because nosotros own got i on the way, but really, they were all pretty good behaved kids amongst younger families in addition to inwards the afternoon most of the kids would clear out for nap time. I intend nosotros would fifty-fifty larn dorsum amongst our piffling one, it was a non bad spot. The sea off the beach itself was perfect because it was super shallow in addition to y’all could swim out quite far which was beyond relaxing for a lady amongst a large belly. 
 One twenty-four sixty minutes catamenia nosotros decided to rent a boat in addition to Mr. Beau was the captain. It was an slow ride roughly the isle in addition to nosotros would describe the boat correct upwards to the minor coves in addition to swim for awhile. The Blue Lagoon inwards a higher identify was the busiest but i of the best spots for a sunny afternoon. The H2O was beyond clear in addition to a perfect contrast to the real local beach nosotros constitute roughly the side past times side cove every bit y’all tin encounter below. 
Room wise nosotros got lucky. The kickoff nighttime nosotros stayed inwards a measure double, uncomplicated in addition to real white in addition to airy. How cute was the couch/bed below all inwards bluish in addition to white dots! The side past times side few nights nosotros were nicely upgraded to the White Suite that had an outdoor jacuzzi in addition to a couch surface area that I could own got taken a nap on for hours, it was a non bad room. The resort has a huge mix of rooms including a few amongst person pools. 
The White Suite had a large comfy bed all surrounded past times netting that I felt super tranquil sleeping inwards compared our apartment inwards the city. 
The puddle at nighttime fourth dimension reminded me of a piffling Alice In Wonderland shot.  Aren’t the umbrellas  really cute. 
Regarding where to eat, nosotros ate at the hotel every nighttime except two. The resort has a wonderful eating seat for to a greater extent than of a fine dining atmosphere but too a casual card close the bar that nosotros ate at. One nighttime for our 2 twelvemonth marriage ceremony anniversary nosotros splurged in addition to subsequently discovering the proposition on Mr. & Mrs. Smith we went to the Squirrel Restaurant at the real gorgeous Danai Beach Resort. An 8 course of pedagogy tasting card looking over the ocean, it was romantic for sure in addition to actually delicious.  It for certain was non a budget dinner but it was a nighttime to remember. The tabular array side dessert solar organisation the pastry chef created was beyond decadent in addition to they were thence overnice inwards accommodating my pregnancy requests on the menu. Oh how I wishing I was dorsum at that topographic point correct now. 
Wow, this clothing looks thence dissimilar from when I wore it 2 years agone on our honeymoon inwards Italy
The other eating seat nosotros actually loved was a local detect called Aristos Fish Tavern right on the beach inwards the minor angling village. We ordered a whole fish, a Greek salad in addition to this delicious spaghetti amongst local seafood, it was thence fresh in addition to I would highly recommend checking it out for the night. Nothing fancy but actually tasty. 
Lots of fourth dimension inwards the sun, a twenty-four sixty minutes catamenia on the boat, I had a pregnancy massage at the spa, lots of overnice fresh nutrient in addition to fourth dimension inwards the water, I would highly recommend Ekies Resort . If y’all are looking for something non fussy but too stylish, it was a perfect fit. 
People tin express joy at the phrase Babymoon, but honestly, I intend it is a non bad term! Mr. Beau in addition to I needed a piffling fourth dimension away from the urban gist in addition to a piffling intermission simply the 2 of us earlier #babygirlkobus arrives. I volition ever hollo upwards this vacation forever inwards my heed every bit a wonderful trip simply the 2 of us had. 
I would recommend booking a larn away at the goal of your 2nd trimester thence y’all produce non experience a fleck nervous close traveling. However if y’all are going somewhere closed by, it is a overnice intermission for your 7th month! 
Dreaming of beingness dorsum inwards Greece.
