Raynor includes the use of reflexology, ayurveda, aromatherapy and essential oils.

Comments from guests:

“100% – we really embraced the place. The most amazing thing is the setting, waking up early to the beautiful large trees surrounding the bower, being able to put on a log fire and make a simple breakie on the bbq was absolutely bliss. The optional cheese platter, hamper and massage service really helped us recharge. We would have just loved another day or two. While the two days was not enough to fully recharge, it definitely gave us a taste to come back and a boost to keep going”. Laura & David.

“A very calming effect (slowly recovering from anxiety and depression). Would have loved to stay longer.” Name supplied.

When should I take a babymoon

When should I take a babymoon?

When should I take a babymoon

Taking a babymoon—a vacation specifically planned for expectant parents before the arrival of their baby—is a wonderful way to cherish precious moments together and enjoy a well-deserved break before the demands of parenthood take hold. While the timing of a babymoon may vary depending on individual circumstances, the second trimester of pregnancy is often considered the most suitable time to embark on this special journey.

The first trimester of pregnancy, which encompasses the initial 12 weeks, can be a challenging period for many women. Morning sickness, fatigue, and hormonal changes can make traveling less appealing and enjoyable. It’s also worth noting that the risk of complications, such as miscarriage, is higher during this early stage. Therefore, it is generally advisable to consult with your healthcare provider before making any travel plans during the first trimester.

During this stage, many women experience morning sickness and fatigue, which may make traveling less enjoyable. Additionally, there may be a higher risk of complications during this early stage of pregnancy, so it’s advisable to consult with your healthcare provider before planning any trips.

Return to Ultimate Babymoon Getaways

As you enter the second trimester, usually around weeks 14 to 27, you may find yourself feeling more energized and experiencing a decrease in morning sickness. This period is often described as the “golden trimester” as many women feel their best during these weeks of pregnancy. The risk of miscarriage decreases significantly, and you may have an increased sense of well-being. These factors make the second trimester an ideal time to consider taking a babymoon.

During this stage, you will likely have more flexibility and comfort for traveling. You may feel less fatigued, and your baby bump may not be as large, allowing for more ease of movement. It’s important, however, to be mindful of your limitations and listen to your body. Each pregnancy is unique, and individual circumstances may require different considerations. Consult with your healthcare provider to ensure you are physically and medically fit to travel.

The second trimester, which spans from around weeks 14 to 27, is often considered the most comfortable time to travel. By this point, morning sickness tends to subside for many women, and energy levels are usually higher. Most pregnancy-related discomforts, such as frequent urination and backaches, haven’t fully set in yet. However, every pregnancy is unique, so it’s crucial to listen to your body and consult with your healthcare provider for personalized advice.

When planning your babymoon, take into account factors such as the duration of the trip, mode of transportation, and the destination itself. Opt for a destination that offers a peaceful and relaxing environment, where you can unwind and bond with your partner. Consider places that are not too far from home, in case any unexpected medical concerns arise.

Return to Ultimate Babymoon Getaways

While the third trimester can still be a viable time for a babymoon, it’s important to exercise caution and make adjustments accordingly. The risk of preterm labour and other complications increases as you approach the later stages of pregnancy. It is generally recommended to choose a destination closer to home and ensure that you have access to appropriate medical facilities should the need arise.

During the third trimester, it’s generally not recommended to travel long distances or too far from your healthcare provider. The risk of preterm labor or other complications increases, and you may feel more uncomfortable as your belly grows larger. If you still wish to plan a babymoon during the third trimester, choose a destination closer to home and ensure you have access to proper medical facilities.

Furthermore, keep in mind any travel restrictions or advisories that may be in place at the time of your babymoon. Stay informed about the current situation, both in terms of the pandemic and any other potential concerns specific to your chosen destination. Your safety, as well as the well-being of your baby, should always be the top priority.

Remember that a babymoon doesn’t have to be an extravagant or lengthy trip—it can be as simple as a weekend getaway to a nearby town or a staycation in your own city. The key is to create a relaxing and memorable experience for you and your partner, savouring the last moments of your pregnancy journey together.

In conclusion, the second trimester of pregnancy, particularly weeks 14 to 27, is often considered the best time to take a babymoon. During this period, you are likely to experience more comfort and energy, and the risk of complications is relatively low. However, it is essential to consult with your healthcare provider before making any travel plans, as they can provide personalized advice based on your specific circumstances. Whether you choose to travel far or stay close to home, the most important thing is to enjoy this special time with your partner and create lasting memories before the arrival of your little one.

Bushfire Recovery

“An Oasis rises from the Ashes”


14th September 2020

On the 31st of December 2019, Mark and Sue Berry, Owners of Bower at Broulee, a luxury couples retreat that was built and developed over 20 years of hard work, watched their passion and business go up in smoke. Determined not to give-up, the last 8 months have needed more resilience and passion than ever before as he set to rebuild his passion with his wife Sue.

The Bower at Broulee has now risen from the ashes in stunning glory and is set to open its doors on October 2nd to its past and future guests.

Located on the NSW South Coast, just south of Batemans Bay, this stunning retreat is perfect for couples seeking privacy and luxury in a natural environment.

The Bower consists of 5 fully self- contained and architect designed and located on 100 acres of bushland that it well on its way to being ‘reborn’ from the tragic fires of 2019/2020. “The miracle of nature can be seen in the ‘fluffy’ trees that now occupy our property” said Sue Berry.

“the gorgeous green sprouts seen on the trees in the early days were signs of hope and kept us going with our journey to rebuild”.

Set within a kilometre of the iconic Broulee Beaches, Mark Berry spoke of the unquestionable decision to rebuild as there is no better place on earth to relax than in a place surrounded by nature.

“The fires took out our residence, the stables and all outbuildings. Each of the five Bowers suffered various levels of damage from nearly destroyed to scarred” Sue explains.

Sue and Mark took on this challenge head-on, but not to just rebuild but to improve the facility for future guests. “It was an opportunity as much as a disaster for our business” Mark explains.

The new iteration of the Bower looks incredible. Luxury fit-out, all new bathrooms, decks and finishes, plus state-of-the-art contactless check-in technology will see The Bower at the forefront in the new post-Covid tourism space.

Each Bower is self-contained and has a fully equipped kitchen, stunning bathroom with underfloor heating and deep double spa, wood fires, reverse cycle air-conditioning, and private BBQ’s on the deck.

“COVID-Safe practices have also been introduced ready for our opening in October” said Sue.

The natural social distancing supplied by the independent Bowers is supported by experiences in the Eurobodalla region such as bushwalking, kayaking, mountain biking and other nature-based activities. And while you may be up for your own self-catering options the Bower has thought of everything in case you don’t want to cook. Chef prepared ready-made meals are an option amongst other delights that will ensure that relaxation is the outcome from your stay at the Bower.
