Mother’s Day is fast approaching and it’s probably time to start wondering: Did you already get a regalito for your mom? Or rather, what are you going to do to make sure tu madrecita feels, well, appreciated? Here’s an idea: Why not book her a nice stay someplace a little fancy, where she’ll get to feel like the reina she is? I’ve done the legwork for you and found some pretty sweet hotel packages you can still book. And if you’re wondering whether it’s worth the price, ask yourself this: Did your mami ever complain about all the times she had to change your diaper, take care of you when you were sick, or the years she fed and clothed you? Yeah, probably not. Splurge on mom this year with one of these sweet deals.
This luxury resort is hosting a truly unique Mother’s Day package called “Strong Like A Mother.” Aimed at mamas (and mamas-to-be), this special deal focuses on a mother’s strength, and includes a one-hour mindfulness session and energy work, a one-hour session with their nutritionist, a naturopathic women’s health appointment with custom tincture, balance and fitness coaching, and an 80-minute massage. Oh, and your gorgeous guest room stay is included.
Heralded as one of the finest destination spas in New England, the Spa at Norwich Inn has plenty of features that make it the perfect place to take mom. You can opt for their general Mother’s Day Spa Package, which features full use of their spa for a day, one fitness class of your choice, lunch at Kensington’s (their on-site restaurant), a morning walk and meditation, makeup color analysis, Spa 101, afternoon tea, plus wine tasting. They also have a number of other packages that include massages and overnight stays in extra-cozy accommodations.
Make your mama feel extra special at the Grand Hotel during their Mother’s Day Weekend, where the whole family can enjoy time at the hotel together, biking (or hiking) around Mackinac Island, plus golfing, daily breakfast and dinner (plus the Grand Luncheon Buffet on Sunday), and a cocktail reception. And of course, mom gets some bonus treats, including a beauty treatment at the Avalon Salon and Spa, and Afternoon Tea in the Parlor.
Mom works hard all year long caring for the kiddos (or grandkiddos). Think maybe what she needs is a romantic getaway with her partner? In that case, the Mother’s Day Weekend Getaway package at the Gateway Lodge might suit her needs. Mom and her date will get to check into their super sweet room on Friday evening, then enjoy a nice cocktail reception to kick things off right. Both parties get breakfast on the house on both days, and High Tea on Sunday, but mom also gets a special massage from the Woods Spa.
For the mama that loves wine, a trip to Napa Valley will surely bring a smile to her face. When booking the Mother’s Day Add On at the Inn on First, mom will get treated to a beautiful flower bouquet upon arrival, as well as a bottle of sparkling wine and a dozen homemade chocolate truffles. She’ll also enjoy a relaxing 50-minute massage right in her room. And of course, she’ll be able to explore Napa herself, where she’s sure to find plenty of wine-tasting opportunities to make it all worthwhile.
JW Marriott is always a good choice as far as accommodations go, and on Mother’s Day weekend, they’re kicking it up a notch. Their Mom’s Day getaway package includes a mystery welcome gift for mom from Lilly Pulitzer, a 10% discount on all spa services, free parking, JW Bath Bomb and oils (so mom can treat herself in her room), turndown service including a JW robe with slippers and scented candle, free entry to Friday’s Lilly Pulitzer event (featuring giveaways, raffles, drink specials, and more), plus free entry to the Mom-osa’s and Minis event on Sunday (where mom can drink up and enjoy a light brunch with the fam and kiddos can enjoy activities as well).
