Whether it’s a mum and daughter shopping splurge to Pacific Fair or a special Mother’s Day dinner on the Gold Coast, here’s how to spoil your mum this May.
They work tirelessly every single day, care for us and nurture us, and raise us into the strong and determined men and women we are today. Without them, we’d be lost, so raise your hands in praise to say “thank you” to mums everywhere. Here are five fabulous ideas for how to spoil your amazing mum this Mother’s Day.
For mums in need of some R&R
It has probably been a long time since your poor mum gave herself the rest she truly deserves, so this year take her relaxation levels into your own hands by booking her a lust-worthy facial or massage at the new-look Azure Spa at The Star Gold Coast. With six lush treatment rooms and an exclusive outdoor cabana, a visit here is like taking a trip to Bali: your mum will leave feeling completely refreshed and rejuvenated. There are lots of treatments and packages to choose from, but our favourite is the ‘deep sea body indulgence’ spa ritual (2 hours for $330). Featuring a salt exfoliation peel and an aromatic, energising full body massage to finish. Heaven.
For mums in need of time with her significant other
Treat your mum and her other half to a stay-cay, because sometimes all mum really wants to do is to lie in bed with freshly washed sheets and a good book. With a one- or two-night stay booked she will have time to read, shower, relax, shop, eat, drink and come back home ready to parent again. The Star Gold Coast offers a luxury breakfast package that is too good to be true. You can also book her a luxe stay at The Star Grand or The Darling this Autumn and save up to 35 per cent; the offer includes unlimited in-room movies and a welcome drink for each guest. Pure bliss for mums everywhere. Book your Starcation here.
For social mums
Could your mum use a little time with her besties? Well, that’s exactly what Sunday brunch was designed for. Treat mum to a specially crafted brunch at Nineteen at The Star by head chef Uday Huja. Menu items include souffle pancakes with seasonal berries, blue swimmer crab omelette, and a classic croque madame. Mum can even pair her pancakes with a two-hour Champagne package to take things to the next level. Brunch sittings are available from 11-1pm and 1.15-3.15pm.
For glamour mums
Does mum need a new pair of boots or sneakers to get around in? Perhaps a lovely new body scrub from Aesop or a new t-shirt from Aje? Organise a ‘day out with mum’ where you treat her to a morning of shopping at some of her favourite stores. Finish off your adventure with lunch or dinner at one of her favourite Gold Coast restaurants.
For gourmet mums
For the ultimate Mother’s Day dinner idea on the Gold Coast you can’t beat the classic Italian-inspired vibe at Cucina Vivo. Featuring a menu of authentic Italian fare and inspired by the stunning coastline of the Amalfi Coast, this hotspot is a well-loved favourite that is sure to receive squeals of delight from mum. Go all out and treat her to the degustation tasting menu; it’s $115 with wine pairings and includes calamari for entree, Stanbroke scotch fillet with salsa verde for main, and tiramisu for dessert. The perfect Mother’s Day gift idea for mums who love to eat and who fancy themselves a bit of a MasterChef. Book your table here.
For mums who are happiest at home
We get it – sometimes the most exciting place you can be is your own sofa. When your mum deserves some chill time, shout her to an indulgent night off in the comfort of her own home with The Star Gold Coast’s Table for 2.
