Moms! It's time for a treat – and why not make it a retreat treat?! I know many of us moms make it known that we are not looking for presents on Mother’s Day – we just want to spend time with our families. I say let's go all out or go home, but don't go home. Hahaha! Vacationing is on my bucket list of more things I'd like to do this year, and my all time favorite type of vacation is all tropical paradise only, please! So, George Teh is reading this, take lots of notes boo boo! Here's an AWESOME list of Caribbean retreats that are ideal for Mother’s Day getaways based on mom's personality type. Which type are you???
For the Eco-Conscious Mom – Puntacana Resort & Club
Located just a five-minute drive from Punta Cana International Airport, Puntacana Resort & Club is the ultimate in sustainably conscious resorts. The 26 square mile resort offers a myriad of eco-friendly activities for families including a stand up paddle board eco tour, a sustainability tour of the resort’s ecological foundation with a visit to the top of the 6-story bird watching tower where you will meet the team tagging and tracking the endangered Ridgeway Hawk and swimming with the turtles and tropical fish in the naturally occurring freshwater lagoons. Families can also relax in the only Six Senses Spa in North America, eat produce grown on the resort’s organic farm at The Grill and play golf on courses blanketed in a rare species of grass that can be irrigated with salt water.
For the Active Mom – Four Seasons Resort Nevis
A tropical oasis located lifetimes away from the hustle and bustle of home—flush with sugar-soft beaches and sweeping vistas of rainforest, Four Seasons Resort Nevis has plenty to keep an active family busy. One of the activities worth highlighting is the Dive and Dine Extraordinary Experience.
Families can get the line-to-table experience by jumping in the water with a Four Seasons Chef and a Nevisian dive master for a two-tank dive to catch the elusive spiny lobster the way the locals do – using a handmade lasso. Once back on shore, families can hang out on the beach while the chef prepares their catch for supper reflecting on their grand Caribbean adventure! While at the resort, families can also venture out on a monkey spotting tour, a reef snorkeling trip or a kayak expedition, just to name a few!
For the Mom Craving Tranquility and Serenity– Four Seasons Resort and Residences Anguilla
Armed with a two-story luxury beachfront spa, Four Seasons Resort Anguilla is ideal for the Mom (and family) looking for a rejuvenating getaway. The resort offers a holistic wellness experience with a treatment menu that is tied to local rituals and ingredients. Families don’t even have to leave the pool since the spa offers a number of poolside treatments. Families can even choose to stay in one of the stunning villas with space for an in house chef to add to their blissful experience.
For the Style Conscious Mom – Cheval Blanc St. Barth
The ultra-chic Cheval Blanc St. Barth is the ultimate vacation destination for the style conscious Mom. Families can stay in the sumptuous yet laid-back Beach Suites with a generous bathroom and an independent dressing, the beautifully-appointed bedroom leads onto a spacious living room, a kitchen and a private terrace with infinity pool. While there, Mom can visit The Boutique, which features a selection of local and international designers as well as prestigious brands such as Pucci. Every lunch at La Cabane de l’Isle and every Tuesday evening at the White Bar, an elegant fashion show unveils the latest trends in a relaxed festive atmosphere. This stylish rendezvous cannot to be missed.
