Mother's day is an international day of celebration; honoring mothers, motherhood and the influence of our mothers in society. Just in case it's slipped your mind -- it is right around the corner.
This weekend we will say thank you to our mums for the endless advice, patience and wisdom they share with us. Sons and daughters around the world will make cards, send gift and flowers to try and convey just how appreciated they really are.
With spoiling our mums in mind, we compiled a list of five hotels around the world that would really make our mother's day:
Lilianfels Blue Mountains Resort and Spa, Katoomba, Australia
Lilianfels Blue Mountains Resort and Spa is a five star resort at the foot of the Blue Mountains, which offers hotels facilities like a heated indoor and outdoor pool, tennis court, library and a gym.
It's the perfect setting for an indulgent afternoon -- you and your mum can enjoy a high tea at the elegant Darley's restaurant, overlooking the panoramic views of the Jamison Valley before booking into the renowned Day Spa. An afternoon at the spa will ensure that you spoil yourselves with massages, facials and other restorative body and beauty treatments.
The ultimate luxury and elegance in the heart of the city of light-could there be anywhere better to spoil mum? Start your day with a stroll and croissant (and of course a shop!) along the Champs-Elysees. The Grand Palais and the Place Charles de Gaulle are within walking distance, as is the Musee Du Quai Branly.
The hotel has a state-of-the-art gym, so if you feel like working off that extra croissant in the afternoon then there are fitness instructors available. Otherwise relax and enjoy one of the signature treatments -- inspired by Marie Antoinette -- at the tranquil hotel spa.
The Regent Taipei is a beautiful five-star hotel that will give you and your mum a chance to experience the vibrant Taiwanese culture, entertainment and shopping. Shopping is the key, with the Regent Taipei being the only hotel in Taiwan to house more than 50 of the world's luxury designer boutiques in its Regent Galleria shopping mall.
Once you are all shopped-out, recharge your batteries with a dip in the fully-heated rooftop swimming pool. It's the perfect place for you and your mum to unwind after a day of shopping and sightseeing.
Close to the centre of Braselton in Georgia, USA, the Chateau Elan Winery and Resort looks like a perfectly luxurious experience to share with your mum. The accommodation itself is inspired by elements of a French country estate and is set among acres of beautiful vineyards.
Together, you can spend the day sampling and tasting custom wines and local cheeses, and even take part in an afternoon cooking class. The hotel also has a special mother's day offer, where you can both work with a Master Parfumeur to customer design your own mother-daughter fragrance. There is also a lake-side spa for if you are looking for an additional indulgence.
Does Tuscan sun and wine sound like perfection[?] Treat your mum to a peaceful and luxurious getaway in the Tuscan Maremma region. The hotel offers luxury that isn't ostentatious, but has the services and comforts of a five star accommodation.
Spoil her with sea views and enjoy a meal together at the hotels seaside restaurant. The cocktails are served poolside at any time of the day or night, or alternatively you can enjoy sea views from the treadmill at the hotel gym. Finish your mother-daughter workout with a treatment from the Pelliclub Health and Beauty centre.
