Achy back, swollen feet, exhaustion. These are just some of the symptoms I’ve been experiencing during the last weeks of my pregnancy (along with all the other pregnant women out there!).
As my husband and I prepare for the arrival of our first child, I knew we needed a staycation in a relaxing environment. We typically book our staycations in downtown San Diego, but this time we opted for something more serene and closer to our North County home. That led us to the beautiful Rancho Bernardo Inn, located in north San Diego.
This gem in suburbia, which opened in 1963, is home 287 stunning guest rooms, AVANT restaurant, and an 18-hole championship golf course.
Of course, carrying extra weight, my favorite amenity offered by the Inn is the spa.
The Spa at Rancho Bernardo Inn has been named a top spa by Conde Naste, offering everything from facials to body treatments and manicures. I splurged for the “Mother-to-be Massage.”
Not pregnant? No problem. My husband had the “Signature Swedish Massage,” which reduced muscle tension and loosened up his shoulders.
We topped off our staycation at the Inn with a lovely meal at Veranda, where we visit regularly for the lamb chops.
Now that the babymoon is over, the waiting game begins!
