The Mother-Daughter Getaway
Posted on: Wed, 05 May, 2021
A holiday trend that has become more and more popular over recent years is that of the parent/sibling getaway and specifically the Mother / Daughter hotel break. These retreats are often treated as a chance to truly relax and unwind, without the worry of being interrupted by work, partners, children or maybe just friends looking to visit have a Zoom quiz.
It goes without saying that a getaway with a parent is special, it can be often taken as a chance to celebrate, revisit old memories, have a break from something or someone or simply to have well-earned catch up. Planning such an escape can be a little easier than other breaks as it’s often the company that is the most important element, however not everyone has the same tastes and some planning is indeed required. While spending time donned in a fluffy bath robe and a face mask for half a day may be bliss for some, we understand it may be hell for others. Some like to relax with by a pool or in a lobby watching the world go by while others might may find true relaxation getting out and exploring the outdoors.
With Mother’s Day approaching (March 14th for anyone that needs reminding) the chance of a weekend away is sadly not possible right now, the promise of an escape may be the next best thing.
