Mariah Carey Enjoys the Ultimate Babymoon at Terranea Resort

Mariah Carey at Terranea Resort

Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif. – April 29, 2011- With just weeks to go, Mariah Carey recently took some needed time out before the arrival of her twins at Los Angeles’ hottest oceanfront property, Terranea Resort. This celebrity mom’s ultimate “babymoon” included pampering at The Spa and plenty of time relaxing in the beautiful natural surroundings.


“It was such an honor for the staff at The Spa at Terranea to be a part of Mariah’s memorable journey into motherhood,” said Melinda Milner, Terranea’s spa director. “Throughout her stay, we kept discovering amazing synergies that made it feel more like a second home for her.”

“As a water baby herself, she has a deep love of the ocean and water, so The Spa fed her spirit from the private, ocean front relaxation room where several of her treatments took place, to our copper bath and hydrotherapy tub that allowed her to relax and revel in her pregnancy – and provided some much needed relief to her maternity state.  She even spent some special moments visiting with a member of our staff who had twins last year,” said Milner.


Mariah indulged in The Spa’s signature treatment, "El Segundo Blue," that pays homage to a beautiful and protected butterfly species found only along the resort’s Palos Verdes Peninsula. The treatment focuses on metamorphosis and reenergizing the mind, body and spirit.

“Mariah’s presence and limitless energy has brought a whole new life and ‘home’ feel to The Spa,” said Milner. “The personal experience that she allowed us to share has left us all inspired as we look to take our pre-natal services to a deeper, more meaningful level.  We look forward to her return to Terranea with Nick and her precious gifts of twins!”
