Hot May Happenings

By Lane Nieset

Mother’s Day may be on Sunday, May 14, 2023, but you can keep the celebration going all month long at Acqualina Resort. The weekend of Mother’s Day, from Thursday through Sunday, bring the woman (or generations of them) in your life to a gorgeous beachfront dinner, watching the sunset over the water from one of the private tables near the sand ($295 per person), or spend Sunday afternoon lingering over a weekend ritual: brunch. Il Mulino’s indulgent spread takes its already spectacular buffet up an extra notch with pasta, sushi, omelets, and waffles—plus your choice of bottomless cocktails and mocktails—while Avra Miami serves up an exciting à la carte menu with decadent smoked salmon towers and scrambled eggs with Kaluga caviar. Keep the gastronomic goodness going in the evenings with an explosion of flavors at Japanese-fusion Ke-uH, where you can toast mom with sake or one of the many fine wines.

When you’re ready for a break from all of the North Miami Beach hotel’s fabulous food, join a Saturday morning Bliss Yoga class, Zumba on Sundays, or take part in something low-impact like water aerobics during a special session held at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 27. The pampering doesn’t stop there—mom deserves a moment to herself at the spa, and if you gift her any of the spa packages on Mother’s Day, she’ll receive a few other surprises, like a glass of bubbles with lunch and an ESPA candle. Her bubble baths back home will feel just as luxurious as the experience at Acqualina.
