It’s that time of year when every woman should throw down their apron, leave the dishes in the sink and make peace with that dust on the furniture. That’s right ladies, is Mother’s Day. There’s no need to feel guilty for taking off to rediscover life’s pleasure and leaving your family behind. An exciting, luxurious getaway is the perfect gift for you on Mother’s Day.
Indulge in a spa weekend with mud baths, herbal wraps and a plethora of massages. Or perhaps set off on a couple of days of sandy beaches and translucent waters.
Make sure you have everything planned in detail: locations, activities and favorite meals that you usually don’t have time to enjoy. Here are some ideas for the perfect getaway on Mother’s Day.
LAVISH YOURSELF WITH A LUXURIOUS SPA & WELLNESS GETAWAY
There is nothing better for the body, soul and mind than a well-deserved trip the spa. Indulge in a full body massage, exotic mud baths and an array of facial treatments. All these treats are meant to rejuvenate and recharge the batteries of any women with a busy and stressful life.
There are plenty of spas and you can choose the best fit for your needs: along the beach, hidden under a tropical garden or at the foothill of a mountain. The opportunities are endless, but the important thing is to relax and to reward yourself with well-deserved pampering.
TRY AN ‘OUT OF THIS WORLD’ LUXURIOUS ISLAND GETAWAY
Nothing in the world beats the decadence of an island getaway. Imagine yourself on a tropical island with turquoise water, white sand and swaying palms. Why not choose Grand Cayman for instance? You have everything at the tip of your toe here. This is the place where five-star hotels wait for you lined up on the white sand Seven Mile Beach.
Take a walk along the beach as the sun goes down and don’t forget to bring your cocktail. Or maybe you want to spend your days shopping? The island is not only a shopping mecca, but it’s also home to excellent restaurants, spas and impromptu parties. Make sure you don’t miss out on the numerous water activities.
TREAT YOURSELF WITH A WEEKEND WINE TOUR
Can you think of a better way to spend Mother’s Day? Breathtaking sceneries mixed with tasty red wines will make this day an unforgettable experience. Cruising from one winery to another can be loads of fun and comforting. For that you can rent a limo for a day or if you are a bit adventurous, you can rent a bike. Although, if you are interested in the sceneries, you can hop on a hot air balloon and take an aerial tour of the surroundings.
In between wineries, don’t forget your picnic basket stuffed with delicious cheeses and a bottle of Zindafel or Syrah. Napa Valley may be the perfect destination for a wine tour on Mother’s Day. You can take the train among quilted vineyards and dazzling rolling hills or you can enjoy the comfort of the Pullman Vista Dome dining car.
QUAINT, LUXURIOUS, ROMANTIC COUNTRYSIDE GETAWAY
Escape the daily routine in an attractive destination like a scenic countryside. Your chosen destination can be close to a beach, at the foothill of the mountains or maybe by the lake. Rent a cottage and opt for all-inclusive services like room-service, spa treats, horseback rides and any other activities.
As the night falls, spoil yourself with a candlelit dinner. Or you can take your glass of wine and enjoy a long bath in the hot tub surrounded by scented, luxurious candles from The Sitota Collection.
The sky is the limit for a perfect getaway on Mother’s Day. You can have everything you want on your special day from spa sleepovers to decadent brunch on a cruise ship.
