BABYMOON

(ft. Seaside Hotel, North Vancouver, BC)


Bag: Louis Vuitton

What an absolutely relaxing and much-needed babymoon it was! A 2-nights and 3-days 
stay over the August long weekend was exactly what Manjot and I needed before the 
inevitable sleepless nights and late-night feedings. Manjot and I thoroughly enjoyed the 
one-on-one time before we added another member to our lovely family. Hashtag blessed!

Of course, with covid-19 and the associated travel restrictions, we were limited in where 
we could go for our babymoon. Given that I am in the final month of the pregnancy, flying
wasn't an option. In any event, we found it prudent to remain local for obvious reasons. 
Firstly, we wanted to ensure we remained in the vicinity of our home in the event of early 
birth or other unexpected complications. For this reason, we contemplated spending a few 
nights away in either Vancouver or North Vancouver, which is at an appropriate distance 
from our home: close enough to home in the event of emergencies & far enough from home 
to really have it feel like a vacation. After a few hotel searches in both of these cities, we 
came across Seaside Hotel which, as the name indicates, is a high-end waterfront boutique
hotel located at the Shipyards and just a few steps from the sea, the Lonsdale Quay Market 
& an array of restaurants and attractions. Since the purpose of our babymoon was to relax 
& rejuvenate, we ultimately decided to keep away from Vancouver's hustle and bustle and 
opted for NorthVancouver's refreshing and calming features promised by the Seaside Hotel

THE ROOM

We were welcomed in a spacious area full of necessary amenities, floor-to-ceiling windows,
stunning street views with partial seaside scenery. The luxurious en-suite bathroom consisted
of a walk-in shower drenched in marble and high-end toiletries. The room came equipped 
with many technologically advanced features such as the in-room guest digital directory, 
motorized shades and Sonifi Staycast streaming system though we didn't make use of the 
latter feature. The linens were soft to the touch and the bed was pleasant enough to doze off 
through the entire night. Sharing some of the pictures of the stunning room with you all:


THE HOTEL

The location of the hotel couldn't be any better. It was a relaxation hub on the inside and a
party spot on the outside. The hotel elevator was a dual elevator system that opened a side 
of its main floor doors to the hotel lounge/restaurant area. The other side of the elevator 
doors opened right to the Shipyards area which we found to be very convenient for easy 
access to the many restaurants, the pier and to enjoy the entire vibe the Shipyards had to 
offer. The hotel and the restaurant staff were cordial and went above and beyond to offer 
their assistance with any request or inquiry we had. The breakfast was light & delish and 
the staff did an excellent job plating it. Overall, 5/5 for the hotel's service & hospitality!



THE AREA

Our favourite part about the hotel was its location, which was within walking distance from
a variety of restaurants that adorned the Shipyards area. Some of the popular restaurants are:
Joey, Pier 7 and Tap & Barrel. The Pier 7 restaurant flaunted the best 180 degrees view of 
the Vancouver Harbour while Joey had decent views of the pier. We decided to dine at Joey 
for the first night and Pier 7 for the second. The summer evenings made it a perfect setting
for patio dining at both of these restaurants. Sharing a few images of the yummy food:
