When “BuzzFeed” reporter Jon-Michael Poff asked moms what they want most for Mother’s Day, there wasn’t a shy mom in the bunch. The traditional flower arrangement didn’t even make it into the top 10, nor did candy, which rarely appeals to active moms eager to stay fit.
Nope. Moms want indulgences like spa days, and if you’d like to be known as the kid who went all-out to give her the ultimate gift, you’ve got to get Mom to Belize. Airline schedules and rates are affordable and convenient, and it takes only a couple of hours to morph mom from frazzled to the blissed-out mother you rarely see because she’s too busy taking care of everyone.
Why Belize? Because in addition to close proximity, Mother’s Day rates are sublimely affordable, especially at Belize Boutique Resort and Spa where it takes only a few hours of celebrity treatment to put mom in the mood to wind down and decompress.
Honor your mother’s dedication and lifetime of love by tucking her into a fluffy spa robe for any of the following experiences and watch her metamorphize into a butterfly:
Glow: Give her a 50-minute African Honeybee Scrub, 40-minute facial, tropical lunch, a split of champagne, access to the jungle waterfall pool and mineral bath, all of which are guaranteed to make her feel 10 years younger.
Pure indulgence: This package got its name from posh treatments that include a 50-minute seaweed massage, 40-minute facial, hour-long aromatherapy massage, tropical lunch, champagne and jungle waterfall/mineral bath time.
Relax. Hydrate. Detox: Mom gets a 50-minute session with therapists expert at working out life’s stressors and includes a tropical lunch, champagne, waterfall and mineral bath access following her choice of a 50-minute aroma, seaweed or mud massage.
Vitality: Energize mom with an African Honeybee Scrub followed by a 50-minute mud massage and 40-minute facial. She’ll enjoy a tropical lunch and champagne plus relax in the waterfall pool and mineral bath.
There’s More: Go beyond these specials if you decide to spare no expense when it comes to treating your mom like a queen.
The ultimate Mother’s Day gift includes a stay at the resort where “jungle chic” best describes the environs. The resort eatery, grounds, luxury accommodations and activities are all mom-approved, and staff can even provide ground transfers to and from Belize City or accommodate a party of 4-to-6 guests via a private boat charter from either San Pedro or Caye Caulker.
Whether you send mom off on her spa adventure alone or decide to come with her, there’s no better time or place to give this gift of rejuvenation and relaxation to the woman who has literally given you life!
