Making mom feel special shouldn’t just be a once-a-year activity, but we always like to go a little over the top on Mother’s Day (May 14). Whether you’re looking for a gift for your mom, spouse, loved one or just want to treat yourself to a little pampering this year, we’ve rounded up seven of our favorite hotel packages that offer high-end perks just for the holiday.
And as a bonus, if you book one of these, we bet the mom in your life will let you tag along and enjoy the fun, too.
The Fullerton Bay Hotel, Singapore
This waterfront Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star property on Fullerton Bay is one of our favorites in Singapore. From the sleek and modern guest rooms with high-tech perks (like bedroom-bathroom privacy screens) to the attentive service, mom will feel well taken care of here.
Up the luxury ante with the hotel’s Mother’s Day package, which includes an overnight stay, an international breakfast buffet for two, an Ultimate Aromatherapy massage and Express & Glow facial, a dining credit, a floral bouquet and a guaranteed late checkout.
The Ritz-Carlton, Aruba
Taking mom to the Caribbean is a treat unto itself, but for the ultimate tropical indulgence, whisk her away to beautiful The Ritz-Carlton, Aruba, a property perched on the island’s famed Palm Beach.
Bring the whole family and treat the special woman in your life to Mother’s Day in paradise. Enjoy accommodations with a complimentary upgrade to an Executive Suite, a daily meal plan for two children (up to age 12) and a $50 hotel credit, perfect for a few beachside cocktails.
The Arch London
Explore London’s most famous sites with Forbes Travel Guide Recommended The Arch as your home base. If your favorite mom appreciates a good celebrity sighting, she’ll love the fact that the hotel sits in the same stylish neighborhood, Marylebone, where celebrities like Madonna and the Beckhams reside when they’re in town.
Let the whole family tag along for Mother’s Day and get a complimentary extra bed for the little ones, an Archie the bear stuffed animal, milk and cookies each evening, a kid-sized bathrobe, slippers and a complimentary toy box.
But don’t forget to treat mom to a little indulgence with The Arch’s Royal Afternoon Tea, a service filled with sweet and savory bites the whole table will love.
Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat, A Four Seasons Hotel
The grand jewel of the French Riviera is the iconic Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat, a Five-Star gem that has played host to royalty and VIPs since it opened in 1908. There’s no grander setting for whisking mom away than this 17-acre palace with its 74 stunning rooms, four restaurants and bars, and Olympic-sized saltwater pool on the edge of the ocean.
Hotel President Wilson, A Luxury Collection Hotel
There’s much to love about Geneva — the beautiful lake, the friendly locals, the fine wine, cheese and chocolate… and, oh yes, the beautiful Four-Star Hotel President Wilson, which is well positioned on the Quai du Mont-Blanc, facing Lac Leman and the French Alps.
Relax with a family-friendly getaway this May, when you’re rewarded with a half-priced second room for the kids and gratis meals for them, too. You’ll also receive in-room welcome perks in the form of tasty treats, a present for the children and a family movie.
A dedicated concierge will also suggest the best group activities in the area to occupy the little ones while mom savors some well-deserved alone time in the spa.
This Mother’s Day, skip the raucous partying the city is known for (or unwind after a weekend of indulgence) by relaxing in luxury with a Mother’s Day promotion consisting of a sparkling wine welcome, a lavish four-course brunch for two in Four-Star The Grill Room and 20 percent off services at the Four-Star spa.
Acqualina Resort & Spa
Treat mom to a sun-drenched spa getaway at the luxurious Five-Star Acqualina Resort & Spa. This stunning Sunny Isles escape (located just north of Miami) offers the Ultimate Spa Package to give women a chance to properly exhale some of life’s worries. She’ll indulge in four 50-minute body or facial treatments at the Five-Star Acqualina Spa by ESPA, a spa lunch for two and a $40 spa credit.
If you choose to bring the kids, they’ll gain complimentary access to the AcquaMarine Children’s Program, so they can enjoy some fun in the sun as well.
