Ayana Resort & Spa - Bali, Indonesia

For mothers and daughters that want to fuel their wanderlust and have a girls getaway in paradise, AYANA Resort & Spa is the place to go for a weekend spa retreat. Located along Bali’s beautiful coastline, overlooking the Indian Ocean, the resort’s award-winning Spa on the Rocks is simply breathtaking. Each spa villa blends into its surroundings, and features signature Balinese design and architecture.


Indulge in their signature hot shell massage or lava stone reflexology treatment combining techniques from China, Thailand and Europe, and spend the evenings watching the sunset at the world famous rooftop Rock bar. With a getaway like this, you’ll be able to thank mom for everything she has ever done.


Floripa Surf and Yoga  - Sicily, Italy

Surf and yoga retreats have been gaining popularity over the past few years, and this European yoga retreat in Italy’s southern region of Sicily is the perfect Mother’s Day short getaway for a weekend of yoga, meditation, sun and surf. They offer ongoing yoga holidays from March till November with only a minimum 3-night stay as a requirement. The retreat includes deliciously healthy breakfasts and dinners (with gluten free and vegan options), two yoga classes in the mornings and afternoons, and use of bikes.


While the atmosphere is very laid back and no activity is “compulsory”, the retreat is geared towards exposing guests to not only asana practice, but also to pranayama, meditation techniques, and to the historical and philosophical roots of Yoga. Additional activities include SUPing, surfing, kite surfing, and a variety of boating options. End your days with relaxing hot stone massages or osteopathic treatments to soothe your muscles.


Ananda in the Himalayas - Uttarakhand, India

Considered to be one of the best yoga retreats in the world and loved by celebrities, this award-winning spa is perfect for those weary mothers looking to de-stress and indulge in luxury. Located on a former Maharaja’s palatial estate, Ananda in the Himalayas is surrounded by lush forests, and overlooks the Ganges River Valley.


They offer personalized yoga retreats centered on raja, hatha, and kriya styles of yoga and visits to the ayurvedic spa are a must. While you’re there, consider a visit to the city of Rishikesh, a city renowned for yoga and meditation, and where the Beatles attended a Transcendental Meditation (TM) training course at the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi ashram.


Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health - Massachusetts, USA

This 2-night Mother’s Day yoga weekend at Kripalu Center in Stockbridge, Massachusetts is a nourishing getaway celebrating the special bond you have with your mother. The property is ideally located in a naturally beautiful area of the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts, and includes hiking and walking trails, a lakefront beach area, sauna, a labyrinth and extraordinary sunset views.


Through a combination of yoga, meditation, and group sessions, this yoga retreat hosted by Sarahjoy Marsh, will help you renew your mother-daughter relationship.


Satori Spa at Bab Al Shams Resort - Dubai, UAE

Dubai is home to a number of award-winning spas but the Satori Spa at Bab Al Shams resort is special because it happens in cabanas with expansive views of the desert. Treat your mother to a DIY weekend of relaxation at one of the best wellness retreats you could create yourself.


Your day of pampering begins with a three-hour Blissful Rose Desert Experience complete with a full body exfoliation, relaxing aromatherapy Swedish massage, rose cream body wrap, luxurious facial, and rounding off with a scalp massage, and ends eating traditional Arabic food, listening to live music and belly dancing at Al Hadheerah, one of the resorts eight restaurants.
