Mother’s Day at Acqualina

By Lane Nieset

Show mom or the women in your life just how special they are to you with a day of pampering at Acqualina. The Miami Beach hotel knows how to make a celebration truly memorable with tons of ways to fête moms and grandmothers—or other family and friends. With its Mediterranean-villa style and 4.5 acres of white-sand beaches, a stay at Acqualina is like being whisked away to the Italian or Greek Riviera—especially while dining on fresh carpaccio and sea salt-crusted whole fish at Avra Miami or indulging in signature pasta dishes at Il Mulino New York’s decadent Sunday brunch.

Since May is all about moms, share a moment together with a surprise spa day in the luxe Royal Spa Suite, a private lounge with everything from a mother-of-pearl steam room to a rainforest shower and wraparound balcony overlooking the ocean. A year-round spa favorite, the 90-minute Young Fan experience is a fantastic mother-daughter moment for kids and teens ages 7 to 15 to enjoy a 60-minute personalized massage for two ($350 per guest). And in honor of Mother’s Day, if you treat mom to a spa package on Sunday, May 14, she’ll take home an ESPA candle as a memento of the special day.
