Mother's Day Getaways

Nothing lets mom know how much you love her more than sending her on her very own Mother's Day Getaway! And here are some fabulous places, which are sure to make her special day unforgettable.

Montego Bay, Jamaica

Berlin, Germany
For the mom who loves unique shopping, art and history, there is no better place to take her than Berlin, Germany. This city is packed with modern history, and tons of artistic types have flocked there since the Berlin Wall came down. Berlin is full of art galleries and great shopping, both boutique and department store. The lovely Concorde Hotel Berlin has tailored the new Concorde Shopping packages to connect shoppers to each city’s most renowned boutiques—giving moms exclusive deals and many reasons to shop in this incredible city.

The Concorde Shopping offer includes:
  • Rates starting at $200 per night
  • Accommodations in a double room, including complimentary breakfast for two
  • An exclusive “Shopping for the Insiders” booklet that includes a map and guide to the shopping secrets of each city
  • List of city-specific promotions at retail partners of Concorde (i.e Berlin: 10% off store purchase, plus a free gift at KaDeWe Department Store)

Hilton Head Island, South Carolina
For the mom who needs some down time, there is no better place than Hilton Head Island, which is 12 miles by 5 miles wide; has 250 restaurants; 200 shops, stores and outlets; and 50 miles of public bike and nature trails.
The (Diva) Digital Detox Package is Hilton Head Island's newest package where mom literally "checks her cell phone or Blackberry at the door" and cleanses her body, mind and soul by the seashore. She can de-stress while hitting the beach, taking leisurely bike rides along winding paths, or chilling at the oceanfront pool - - all 'sans cell.' In the late afternoon, mom can indulge in an Indigo Wrap or a Queen for the Day/Sea Goddess Escape Massage, and then dine on delectable seafood with sunset views over the water. Of course, the cell would be available for emergencies, and of course, friends and family would know where she is, but how healing could it be to truly unplug your life for a long weekend? 

Hilton Head Island boasts not only world-class hotels, but also large oceanfront or seaside homes for rent. Gather up your girlfriends and rent a beach house for a long weekend or the week. This is like having a big slumber party with your best friends - but you are an adult now and the party is at the beach!

Beverly Hills, California
Shopping, shopping and more shopping! Beverly Hills is one of the world's most sought-after locales with beautiful year-round weather, acclaimed hotel accommodations, sumptuous dining, world-renowned designer boutiques and incomparable shopping. Synonymous with Hollywood glamour, Beverly Hills enjoys an international reputation as the home and playground of A-list movie stars. The city is not only known worldwide for its grand mansions and chic shops along Rodeo Drive, but also for its multitude of art and architecture, spas and salons, and walkable drives. Mom can enjoy lunch at The Ivey, shopping along Robertson and a day of art at the Getty Museum.

Now that awards season is over, this is a great time to visit Bev Hills. Until June 30, participating hotels are offering their fabulous "BREAKFAST IN BEVERLY HILLS" packages. Visitors who book the package receive a free night and complimentary daily breakfast for two.
For example, The Beverly Hilton is offering stay three nights and receive the fourth night free along with daily complimentary breakfast for two. Rates start at $275 per night.
