Let’s face it, mothers are the glue that holds our families together. They listen, take care of everyone, and ultimately put up with quite a lot. Mother’s Day is the one day of the year where it’s their turn to be spoiled (thank you very much) so don’t leave your planning to the last minute (again).
This year, we suggest families show their appreciation by treating mum to something she’ll really love — an indulgent getaway recommended by The Luxe Nomad. Check out our gallery of top villa picks in Asia and beyond. And in case it slipped your mind, Mother’s Day falls this year on May 14!
#1 For the Mum Who Likes Her Bubbly
Whisk her away to one of the world’s most romantic destinations! Set amphitheatrically over the cliffs and following the world-famous architecture of the island, Pegasus Suites & Spa is one of Santorini’s most luxurious resorts. Enjoy the privacy of your villa’s own pool or Jacuzzi, soak up the dramatic caldera views, and start each day with a complimentary Champagne breakfast!
#2 For the Mum Who Needs to Let Go of Some Tension
As one of the first resorts in Asia to boast an all-inclusive spa, Fusion Maia Resort Da Nang treats its guests to complimentary daily spa treatments and Natural Living programmes, meaning the woman in your life can relax and reboot without having to worry about the extra cost. The resort is known for its high level of personalised service, and every villa comes with its own private pool and garden.
#3 For the Mum Who Wants Some Alone Time with Her Hubby
It doesn’t get much better than turquoise water, powdery white sand, and oceanfront beach bungalows, which is what you’ll find at the kid-friendly Anantara Dhigu Maldives Resort. Make unforgettable family memories snorkeling, kayaking, and exploring the island, but be sure to take advantage of the resort’s babysitting service to log in some romantic alone time.
#4 For the Mum Committed to Fitness
Help her achieve her fitness goals in the serene setting of Central Java, Indonesia. Located amidst a wonderful coffee plantation and scenic mountain views, MesaStila offers a variety of personalised fitness programmes that incorporate healthy meals, yoga, hiking, and one-on-one training. Plus, everything at the resort is grown and processed on site, from coffee to vegetables and even the ingredients for their spa products!
#5 For the Mum Who Wants to Be Pampered in Style
All moms deserve some pampering every once in awhile. Ensure she’s treated like a queen at The Edge Bali, a stunning cliff-front villa resort offering opulent accommodation and dedicated butler service to attend to her every need. The resort also features one of Bali’s best spas, with innovative treatments inspired by the four basic elements of the daily Balinese temple offering; sincere devotion, sacred flowers, holy water, and life-sustaining rice.
#6 For the Outdoorsy and Adventurous Mum
Give her a front row seat to the Kruger National Park at Singita Lebombo Lodge, a spectacularly designed, fully-staffed private villa suspended above the N’Wanetsi River. Embark on daily wildlife tours and game drives with professional guides and trackers where you can spot lions, rhinos, elephants, and cheetahs!
#7 For the Beach-Loving Mum
With white sand, minimal crowds, and impossibly clear turquoise water, it’s easy to see why The Surin Phuket is frequently recognised for having the best private beach in Phuket. Treat mom to the tropical island paradise she’s been dreaming of, complete with a rejuvenating spa, sunset cocktails at the beach bar,and beautifully-appointed beachfront cottages. Beware – she may not want to leave!
