Whether you take yours with milk, sugar or a chocolate biscuit, you can’t go wrong with a nice cup of tea, which is why we think it’s the perfect thing to give your mum this Mother’s Day. We’re not talking about bringing her a cuppa in bed this Sunday, we’re talking about treating her to a day of elegance, pampering and afternoon tea. Fortunately for you, we’ve had our cake and eaten it in some of the finest establishments in the UK and - just in time for Mother’s Day - we’ve made a list of our top five…
They say a mother’s love is priceless and we have to agree. However, if we did have to put a price on it, we reckon half a day spent at Chuan Spa at The Langham on Regent’s Street (pictured above) would be a pretty even trade. The Relax and Tea Half Spa Day includes a Wonderland Tea in the spa's luxurious Palm Court and full use of the spa facilities (including vitality pool, salt sauna, steam room and 16 metre pool) for four hours. From £80 per person it's a little pricier than a bunch of flowers, but (we're sure you'll agree) she's worth it.
Want to treat mum to a bit of peace and quiet this Mother’s Day? Whisk her away to the tranquil Aqua Roma in Surrey and spend the afternoon strolling around the private gardens, relaxing in the state-of-the-art spa facilities and (of course) enjoying a bit to eat. For £39/95, the Spa Day with Afternoon Tea includes light refreshments, afternoon tea and full use of the spa facilities, including an indoor heated swimming pool and sauna and jet spa. Now that’s what we call quality time.
What better way to celebrate how wonderful your mum is than raising a nice glass of bubbly? How about letting her raise her own with the Reviver Spa Day with Champagne Afternoon Tea at Spa Verta. For £55 per person, lucky mothers will enjoy a delicious afternoon tea with bubbles and full use of spa facilities, including a vitality suite with a 10m hydrotherapy pool, sauna, steam, sanarium, foot baths, heated lounges and fitness equipment. Cheers mum!
What could be a more fitting way to say thanks for the evenings your mum spent re-reading your favourite bedtime stories than the unforgettable Mad Hatter’s Spa Day at Agua Spa. Located within the Sanderson Hotel in the West End, Agua Spa provides 10,000 square-feet of pampering, spiritual relief, and tranquility to all who enter. For £160 per person, the Mad Hatter’s Spa Day includes a 40-minute Neom Organics Body Boost, quick manicure or pedicure, Alice in Wonderland themed ‘Mad Hatter’s tea party’, a glass of champagne, Neom Organics travel candle gift and full use of the spa facilities. Happy Mother's Day indeed.
Treat any city-dwelling mothers to a bit of time out with a trip to urban retreat, the Health Club and Spa at Hyatt Andaz, Liverpool Street. The Luxury Afternoon Tea Spa Day is just what busy mums need to relax. For just £50 she will enjoy a 30-minute massage, full use of spa facilities including steam room and gym, a delicious afternoon tea and, best of all, the chance to well and truly put her feet up.
