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 – that might have worked as children but as grown-ups it’s just not as cute. We’re talking about treating her to a day of elegance, pampering and afternoon tea.
Here at Wahanda we don’t need an excuse for afternoon tea, but if we did, Mother’s Day would be it. 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 favourite five. If you think your mum might enjoy taking her tea with a side of spa, why not try one of these…
If you were one of those kids who spent their childhood making mud pies, wearing dirty shoes in the house and just generally creating messes for your mum to clear up, what could be more a fitting gift than a Mother’s Day mud treatment? Head to The Spa at The Harte & Garter Hotel and indulge in their Rasul Spa Experience with Afternoon Tea & Champagne for Two. You will both enjoy a one hour rasul mud treatment, Champagne afternoon tea and full use of facilities including relaxation rooms, hydro pool and crystal steam room. Now that's what we call quality time.
If your mum taught you everything you know about health and beauty (sacrificing the odd lipstick in the name of face paint) return the favour this year by taking her for an unforgettable Spa Day and Afternoon Tea Experience for Two at The Spa at Radisson Blu Edwardian, Guildford. Side by side you'll enjoy one 30 minute treatment from a selection of booster facial, back massage, mini manicure or mini pedicure, as well as full use of the spa facilities (including a stone oven sauna, plunge pool and aromatic steam room) and an elegant afternoon tea for two served in the gorgeous Oceanic Restaurant.
Treat any city-dwelling mothers to a bit of time out with a trip to urban retreat, the Health Club & Spa at Hyatt Andaz, Liverpool Street. The Luxury Spa Day with Afternoon Tea package is just what busy mums need to relax. For just £60 she can choose between a 60 minute massage or facial, then enjoy 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.
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 a day spent at Chuan Spa at The Langham (pictured) on Regent’s Street would be a pretty even trade. The Half Spa Day for 1 Incl. 2 Treatments & Afternoon Tea package includes a Chuan harmony massage, Bliss facial, Full use of the spa facilities, a Chinese tea ritual in the spa's 'Contemplation Area', afternoon tea (with a choice of over 50 teas) and even a spa product gift to take home – who doesn’t love a goodie bag?
What better way to celebrate how wonderful your mum is than raising a nice glass of bubbly? How about letting her raise her own glass with a Champagne Afternoon Tea Spa Day at the five star May Fair Spa at the Mayfair hotel? This Spa Day experience offers lucky mothers the choice of one 60 Minute Treatment from the spa menu, full use of the spa facilities and a Champagne afternoon tea in the hotel’s famous restaurant Quince. Cheers mum!
