Whether hunting for a Mother’s Day activity or just in need of some peaceful mother-daughter time away, check out our list of must-try spa treatments and facilities specifically designed for luxury and relaxation.


Mommy & Me

Aptly named Mommy & Me, this mother-daughter spa is the real deal — even owned by a mother-daughter team. Located in Hialeah, Fla., just a short drive from Miami, Mommy & Me is the ideal destination for moms and their little ones to enjoy a weekend beach trip or girls’ trip with luxury services and pampering. Opt for a packaged deal of mani-pedis, or shampoo and styling services, $55–75. All packages include a pink child-sized robe for the kids and a complimentary glass of punch.


Laniwai Salon

Disney’s Aulani Resort and Spa in in Ko Olina, Hawai‘I, is a top choice for the whole family. With a long list of family services, treatments and spa packages, you may need a few trips to really take advantage of the offerings. Kids ages 5 and older are welcome in the spa and can attend treatments with mom and dad, or enjoy a makeover of their own with the Keiki O Laniwai Magical Makeover experience.

The Beach Plum Spa

You may be familiar with the classic couples massage, but The Beach Plum Spa offers parent-child sessions as well. With three locations in Massachusetts, Beach Plum offers wellness services for children aged 10 and up, including top-rated treatments such as the chocolate manicure. Slip into plushy robes and opt for a mother-daughter body scrub, or split up for a bit while the kids get a pedicure. The chocolate pedicure, $45, includes a hot chocolate for the kids while soaking their feet before being scrubbed down with chocolate shavings.


The Ritz-Carlton Spa 

One resort spa you can find in most cities, The Ritz-Carlton offers a wide variety of lavish treatments. The Ritz-Carlton Denver hosts Mother’s Day specials for families of all ages with endless options for parents and facials for teens, pedicures for tweens, hairstyles for kids and polish for kids as young as three.
