Explore Nourishing Mother’s Day Getaways Across Asia

Sit with Mom by a Moat

Though many hotels invoke the majesty of the word palace, few can claim such palatial trappings as a moat. The Palace Hotel Tokyo can. The property’s regal waterside setting can be enjoyed on Grand Kitchen’s outdoor terrace, or through the floor to ceiling windows of The Palace Lounge while enjoying their springtime afternoon tea. The Afternoon Tea “Stones” feature seasonal sweets and savories with prices starting at JPY 8,000 for the set (or JPY 11,000 with champagne). Round out the afternoon with a treatment at evian SPA TOKYO®, the Alpine-inspired spa at Palace Hotel Tokyo. The hotel’s spa was recently awarded a prestigious Five-Star rating by Forbes Travel Guide, making it the very first Japanese-brand hotel to achieve a Five-Star rating for both its hotel and spa.

Mom Retreats to Da Nang

While a massage never goes astray on Mother’s Day, TIA Wellness Resort’s retreats move beyond short-term fixes to offer guests lifelong skills to help alleviate stress and anxiety and connect to their creative selves. The ‘Creative Healing Retreat’ harnesses the power of breath, art, energy healing, and nourishing plant-based cuisine over a four- or seven-night stay. The ‘Body & Mind Cleanse’ is all about nourishing raw food cuisine combined with intermittent fasting, detox therapies, and holistic wellbeing practices from sound healing to private yoga sessions. The week-long stay includes excursions to local places of spiritual significance, such as a private Tai Chi session in the Marble Mountains.

Letting Mom Go Solo

Tanah Gajah, a Resort by Hadiprana, in the uplands of Bali caters to a broad range of travelers ranging from families to couples. Mothers craving a break from daily routines might enjoy the gift of some solo downtime with the resort’s ‘The Art of Solo Serenity.’ The two-night stay package for one includes a 60-minute private yoga or meditation session at Dua Dari, a Residence by Hadiprana, followed by an afternoon tea; a 90-minute signature Tanah Gajah Jade massage (4 hands massage) at The Spa; half board including two three-course meals at The Tempayan; and complimentary return airport transfer.
