published on April 12, 2022 by

Let’s hear it for Mom! Mother’s Day this year is on Sunday, May 8, 2022, giving us a chance to celebrate that special, irreplaceable woman in your family. To make her feel really appreciated, consider planning a Mother’s Day getaway that will go beyond the usual brunch and flowers. RedWeek has a few destination suggestions we think mom will love. 

Rocky Mountain Luxury In Vail / Beaver Creek

Why It’s Great For Mom: The Rocky Mountains of Colorado turn from snow-covered white to lush green in May, providing the ideal backdrop for a Mother’s Day weekend filled with relaxation, scenic beauty and luxury. In Vail and Beaver Creek, Mom will enjoy an alpine landscape without the crowds of ski season — this is the region’s so-called “secret season” between winter and summer. For a treat, spoil your mother with a French champagne brunch at Vintage

Where To Stay: Mom deserves the best! The Ritz-Carlton Club, Vail delivers everything the Ritz-Carlton brand is renowned for: attention to detail service, elegant environs, and a state-of-the-art spa. 

Mystical Wellness In Sedona

Why It’s Great For Mom: Let’s face it: being a mother can be stressful. So why not give mom a trip that’s filled with restorative wellness? Sedona, Arizona, is legendary for its spiritual properties, with a landscape filled with high desert wonder, red rocks (said to have healing powers) and mysterious vortexes. If that all sounds a little too new age for your mom, Sedona is also home to dozens of incredible spas, each one offering rejuvenating treatments that will leave a parent ready to take on the world.  

Where To Stay: The villas at Arroyo Roble Resort are ideal for a little “mom” time, with cozy fireplaces, whirlpool bathtubs, and private balconies. 

A California Escape In Palm Springs

Why It’s Great For Mom: Another desert option — spring in the desert is just perfect, thanks to fresh air, sunshine, and plenty of natural beauty. Mom will love exploring the upscale shopping options in Palm Springs or touring the timelessly cool mid-century modern homes (many of which belong to big-name Hollywood stars) in the surrounding neighborhoods. As its name suggests, the destination is also a hot springs hot spot, with several places offering soaks that can can improve metabolism, reduce stress, and increase overall health. 

Where To Stay: Framed by the San Jacinto, Santa Rosa and San Gorgonio Mountains, Marriott’s Shadow Ridge – The Villages is as picturesque as it gets — and if mom is a golfer, it boasts an eight-hole championship course. 

Arts & Culture In New York City

Why It’s Great For Mom: If your mother is someone who loves arts & culture in all its forms, you can’t beat New York City. See masterpieces from over the centuries at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Catch a world-class musical on Broadway or hear the symphony at Lincoln Center. Go for a shopping spree on 5th Avenue or in the stylish SoHo neighborhood. Take a carriage ride around Central Park — a great way to spend some quality time with mom in the Big Apple. 

Where To Stay: With a privileged location in Midtown, The Manhattan Club puts you right in the center of the action, within easy walking distance New York City’s best — theaters, restaurants, shopping, and beyond. 

A Las Vegas Getaway

Why It’s Great For Mom: Some moms just want to have fun. Las Vegas remains one of the most fun destinations on the planet. Even if gambling isn’t her thing, the city has so much more to offer, from glamorous shows to chic cocktail lounges. Vegas is also underrated for its outdoor adventure offerings; just a short drive away, you’ll find on-the-water excitement on Lake Mead, scenic hiking trails, and much more. 

Where To Stay: Situated right on the world-famous Vegas Strip, Marriott’s Grand Chateau is an oasis of old world charm, with a rooftop pool and bar for sunbathing days and laid-back nights.
