Mother's Day Pamper Packages
Surely mothers - with their lifetime of patience and love - are worth more than a phone call on Mother's Day which this year falls on Sunday 6th March? We'd even question whether a beautiful bunch of flowers could properly acknowledge their contribution. We say that because travel is the language we speak, and reckon the best way to say thank you is by treating them to a getaway where the tables are turned, and it's they who put their feet up for the weekend.
While we know you can't put a price on a mother's love there are deals out there that won't break the bank either. The Flexicover team has scoured the best packages because we know mums, as a whole, like value for money too. And remember, because we’re not affiliated with any other travel company, there’s no agenda – other than to provide you with a few ideas to ensure you have the most relaxed and happy mum around.
Spirit of the Knights, Greece
Given that Mother's Day originated in Ancient Greece, it's apt to celebrate the day in Spirit of the Knights in Rhodes. This eco-hotel is as unique as your mum is lovely; architecturally influenced by Crusaders and Ottomans, it's steeped in history but inside it's as contemporary as you'd expect from a boutique hotel. Mums can choose to take it easy in the spa, go on one of their many guided walks, or flex their mind and body in a yoga class. For an added treat, you can surprise ma with a bottle of champagne, chocolates and flowers on arrival. So thoughtful of you, right?
Price: Two nights bed and breakfast, with the in-room treats and flights starts from £230 per person. For more information see Spirit of the Knights, Greece.
Courchevel 1850, France
For mums who would go stir-crazy after a few days in a spa, Courchevel is a ski resort which gives a more balanced break, without losing the luxury. While skiing is the main activity there obviously, its new Aquamotion watersports and wellness complex is just two months old and the largest in the Alps. After a busy year being mum, let her relax in heated lagoons, jacuzzis or in its aqua gym, and perhaps indulge her with a spa treatment in the adults-only area. For the all-important dining experience, pick from its seven Michelin-starred restaurants, or perhaps the latest opening by celebrity chef Angela Hartnett, Cucina Angelina.
Price: From £220 per person for four nights bed & breakfast, and flights. For more information visit Madame Vacances
Corinthia Hotel, Malta
The five-star Corinthia Hotel at St George's Bay in Malta will make your mum feel like the million dollars that you know she is. With a welcome drink in hand, indulge in a full day's use of the extensive spa area. Treat both of you to a back, neck and shoulder massage plus a mani-pedi and a facial bespoke to your skin type. Plus it's right by the coast, should you fancy a dip in the Med afterwards.
Price: The spa package, a room for two nights with breakfast plus flights and transfer starts at £350 for two people. See Corinthia Hotel, Malta for more information.
Inspira Hotel, Portugal
A city break doesn't only mean shopping, restaurants and shows. It can be just as much of a pamper sesh, just without the long transit. Take Inspira Hotel - it's a four-star urban retreat at the centre of Lisbon, whose luxury spa will transport you a million miles away. With their Mother's Day pamper package, you and mum can unwind in style with a 30-minute massage each. Access to the wellness area, WiFi, online newspapers, in-room tea, coffee, bottled water, comfy slippers and bathrobes are also included in the deal. That's not to mention the crisp, modern rooms - they follow feng shui design principles to create even more harmony in the hotel.
Price: Two nights bed and breakfast with the Mother's Day package, plus flights, starts at £170 per person. For more information see Inspira Hotel, Portugal
Hayfield Manor, Ireland
Cork's Hayfield Manor is locally known as one of the most exclusive hotels in the area, but it's not one for minimalist urbanites. Instead this family-run business, country manor-esque grounds and opulent interiors, will certainly appeal to mum's with more traditional tastes. Those who like the tastier things in life can enjoy a special four-course Mother's Day lunch in their bistro - perhaps with a bottle of bubbles for an added treat
Price: Lunch, a room for two nights with breakfast plus flights starts at £520 for two people. See Hayfield Manor, Ireland for more information.
So if you're planning to whisk your mum away for an extra special treat this Mother's Day just remember that we at Flexicover are committed to providing you with the highest level of protection to ensure that you are safe and secure 24 hours a day while away.
