Offering the opportunity for expectant parents to have a final luxury getaway before the baby arrives, The Ritz-Carlton hotels in Bahrain, Dubai, Sharm El Sheikh and Sharq Village, Doha are delivering a brand new “Ritzy Babymoon” holiday experience.

“Traditionally, we have a lot of families and couples who holiday at our resorts throughout the year in Dubai, Bahrain, Sharm El Sheikh and Doha,” said area vice president, Middle East Pascal Duchauffour.

“As a father of four young children myself, I know firsthand how rewarding, yet tiring, it is to raise a family, so we wanted to make sure that all our guests who are expecting a baby would have a soothing last vacation before their lives turn upside down. That’s how the idea for a specialized babymoon package at The Ritz-Carlton was “born,” he added.
