Mother's Day Getaways

Six Travel Styles to Suit Every Mom this Mother’s Day

April 20, 2016 -

With Mother's Day just around the corner, what better way to celebrate and show your appreciation than by giving her the gift of travel.

Whether it's pampering mom like a queen with a luxurious spa treatment in Mexico or exploring the vibrant coral reefs of the Caribbean off Saba, here's a suggested list of travel experiences guaranteed to suit any mom' vacation style.

CITY MOM After a day of shopping and exploring the “Big Apple,” The Sherry-Netherland offers guests a luxurious and intimate haven to relax and unwind. Named the #1 Top Hotel in the United States in 2016 TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice™ awards for Hotels, the iconic Central Park landmark welcomes visitors into the lobby with a breathtaking ceiling mural inspired by Raphael's frescoes in the Vatican Palace. White-gloved elevator operators whisk guests up to their individually-designed room, many of which feature high ceilings, marble bathrooms and original architectural details. Those looking to stay curled up in bed, day or night, can indulge with room service from Cipriani, the famed Italian restaurant located off the hotel's lobby. Starting spring rates begin at $389 per night, and more information is available at sherrynetherland.com

SPIRITUAL MOM Known for handcrafting authentic luxury and cultural journeys, Cox & Kings' Southwestern Spa and Healing Immersion trip is the perfect gift for the mom looking to recharge and reset her “zen” mindset. On this journey, mom can rejuvenate and heal in the spiritual Mecca's of Sedona, Arizona, and Santa Fe, New Mexico. She'll soak in the healing waters of Ojo Caliente, and relax at the Japanese onsen, 10,000 Waves. No trip to Santa Fe would be complete without meeting a local art curator and visiting some of the country's top Native American galleries. In Taos, she'll enjoy a private tour with a Native American healer, explore the Petrified Forest and marvel at the magnificent Grand Canyon. During this restorative journey, the luxurious Inn of Five Graces, La Posada Hotel & Gardens and the Enchantment Resort will be her home. For more details, please visit coxandkingsusa.com

GLAM MOM For globetrotting mother daughter duos looking to capture their signature scents, Discover Your Italy, a bespoke travel outfitter locally-based in Perugia, takes guests on a journey to a master perfume creator in Florence to learn the techniques and secrets of a historic perfumery. The workshop, which takes place inside an intriguing laboratory, is located within the historical cellars of a Florentine Renaissance Palazzo. Following in the footsteps of Catherine de Medici and René le Florentin, guests will be guided through the blending process that ultimately leads to the creation of their very own personalized fragrance to take home. For more details, please visit discoveryouritaly.com

WELLNESS MOM Whisk mom off to Mexico this Mother's Day and pamper her like a queen at Gem Spa, one of Cancun's most renowned spas. Nestled inside the luxurious Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun Resort, the award-winning 40,000 square-foot gem-inspired “Gem Spa” offers awe-inspiring spa treatments utilizing chakra-balancing gems, a unique ten-step hydrotherapy ritual, and luxurious spa amenities. In lieu of a jeweled crown, treat her to a Diamond Dust Body Exfoliation and Massage that will leave her feeling like a million carats. For more details, please visit coralbeachcancunhotel.com

ADVENTURE MOM Is your mom's idea of fun leaping tall buildings in a single bound? Then a trip to Saba, the smallest of the Dutch Caribbean islands, is the perfect escape for her this Mother's Day. After landing on Saba's thrilling 1,300-foot runway, she'll discover the tranquil island's picturesque towns and lush green landscape while climbing to the top of Mt. Scenery. Or if the sea is more her speed, she can explore some of the Caribbean's most vibrant coral reefs while scuba diving in one of the world's most renown locations. By land or by sea, Saba's unique offerings are ideal for fulfilling any super mom's travel adventure bucket list. Please visit sabatourism.com

FOODIE MOM: Replace the typical Mother's Day breakfast in bed with a decadent spread at Salt Hotels instead! Sure to please the foodie mom on her special day, Salt Hotels offer guests their complimentary rustic breakfast served at all three properties: Eben House and Salt House Inn in Provincetown, MA and The Chequit on Shelter Island, NY. A rotating daily breakfast menu is artfully presented and influenced by the seasons. In addition to savory favorites such as frittatas and lighter options such as a yogurt bar, moms can indulge in the daily selection of sweet treats including Seasonal Fruit Crisps, flaky, buttery Pan Au Chocolat, and Blueberry Scones which are baked fresh daily. For the mom whose Mother's Day would not be complete without breakfast in bed, she has the added luxury of enjoying just that. So go ahead and linger a little longer on your special day, breakfast can be delivered to the room at no extra charge. For more information, please visit salthotels.com
