Because mothers are a class of their own, it's fair to say that one size does not fit all. Below we list some resort getaway ideas for the nature loving, self care devotees and beach loving mom's.
The Nature Enthusiast
The Jekyll Island Club Resort (pictured) offers many ways for you and your mom to reconnect with Mother Nature and each other. This Mother’s Day, take Mom exploring across the island, suit up in all whites for a game of croquet, tee it up and take in the views with a round of golf, enjoy a serene horseback ride through the majestic maritime forest and bike pedal through 22 miles of paved paths with scenic trails of marshes and historical sites. If mom prefers to transport by water, kayaks, paddleboards and water bikes are available for rental.
During your weekend of exploring, treat mom to a gourmet brunch at Jekyll’s Grand Dining Room or Eighty Ocean Kitchen and Bar, an open-air and oceanfront restaurant.
Plan a weekend at Jekyll Island Club Resort, offering visitors the preserved charm of a Georgia state park with the luxury of being a year-round beach resort. Throughout the month of May, book the Marvelous May-cation package and experience all the pampering a mom deserves. For stays booked over select days in May, enjoy a $75 resort credit.
