The last couple of Mother’s Day celebrations may have been muted because of COVID. That’s all the more reason to go for it this year. Treat your mother to a solo getaway, join her on a jaunt, or moms can decide to dash off with their BFFs for a bit of TLC.

Whatever you decide, here are a few ideas for a memorable Mother’s Day escape.

Bonaire Estate, Marisule, Gros Islet, St. Lucia
Show mom how much you care by pampering her with the Calabash Cove Resort & Spa’s Unconditional All-Inclusive package that includes meals, beverages, room service, premium drinks, a stocked in room bar with full size bottles and over 20 wines from the wine list by the bottle. Spoil her with “me time” at Ti Spa. Paddle board, kayak, or chill with yoga, or set off on a nature hike. Enjoy the Asian inspired cuisine at Windsong restaurant and the popular C-bar overlooking the infinity pool.

Asbury Park, New Jersey
The Asbury Hotel is steps from sand and sea. Consider the Mother’s Day Escape package. Mom gets a small bottle of champagne and a relaxation kit, with face, eye, and foot masks. This Mother’s Day weekend can include bowling next door at Asbury Lanes, where you can listen to live music and eat heartily at The Diner. The boardwalk and beach await you, as does shopping for antiques, vintage clothes and more.

Portland, Oregon
There’s plenty of good music, great food, and wine in Portland. The Hotel DeLuxe in downtown is a smart choice for a salute to mom. Wow her with the elegant Afternoon Tea at Gracie’s. You can’t go wrong with custom-blend teas, tea sandwiches, pastries and sweet treats and a wine pairing menu. Find solace in the city’s many public gardens.

Beaver Creek, Colorado
With skiers gone, the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek is a quiet getaway in the Colorado mountains. Imagine the mountain backdrop during sunset cocktails and a wood burning fire pit and s’mores. Let her catch her breath at Exhale spa, be it group workout classes or any number of treatments.

Miramar Beach, Florida
You’re sure to put a smile on mom’s face as she checks into Hotel Effie Sandestin and is greeted with a cool towel and a handcrafted cocktail and a warm homemade cook. After a yummy Mother’s Day Brunch at Ovide, let her rejuvenate at Spa Lilliana. All treatments include a mimosa, a rose, and a gift. Conclude a perfect celebration with a sunset stroll on the beach. Head up to the Ara Rooftop Pool and Lounge, stargaze and reflect.

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
In the heart of Philly’s downtown cultural district is the Logan Hotel. Treat mom to some spa time at The Underground Spa & Wellness. All month long take advantage of the package that includes signature spa treatments such as the Logan Relaxation Massage and the Pure Results Facial with Moroccan Oil Scalp Massage.

Lake Tahoe, California
Tahoe isn’t just for skiing. For Mother’s Day the place to be is the Ritz-Carlton. Think hiking and hot air balloon rides. Put high on the list too, a visit to the Highlands Spa. She’ll be talking forever about the Journey Through the Forest treatment, designed to release stress and tension while stimulating the immune system. The onsite restaurant Manzanita is hosting a Mother’s Day brunch, with highlights like a Fisherman’s Catch raw bar.
