Spa-ing with moms


As we all know so well, we spend every day running from A to B in a highly stressed environment and time flies by. Often, we do not even have enough time to spend time with our important others and your interaction with your mom is probably a quick WhatsApp or call between meetings and errands.

This May, make the time to spend some quality moments with her. The gift of a night stay at Granny Mouse with a spa treatment is not only the best way to spoil her but an opportunity to go along for the pampering and share the experience.

We chatted to a few mom and daughter combo’s and have decided to pass on their thoughts on the whole experience:

  1. Make a few nights of it

Don’t keep to the same frenetic schedule and rush through a morning of spa treatments, only to head back to the craziness of the city. Instead, head to the country for a chance to relax and reconnect. The real bonus is away from those distractions- leave someone else to pick up the slack, sort out the crises and, instead, enjoy a full day of relaxation and spa treatments.

  1. On arrival

Order a plate of snacks before your treatment and, together, go over the spa menu and enjoying creating a personal, customized experience just for the two of you. That won’t just give you some extra bonding time but allow you to build up some pre-granny mouse spa excitement. The Granny Mouse Spa has a pick ‘n mix menu where you can select 3 or 4 treatments that suit your particular needs – alternatively, if you can’t make up your mind, you can opt for the Granny Mouse signature package or any other combinations that will make for a perfect day of pampering.

  1. Make this a together experience

Even though the Spa menu comes with a list of individual treatments and endless options, explore the things that you can do together. How about a mom and daughter massage and a mani-pedi or time out in the CSpa Shimmer Milk Hydro bath where you can catch up over a bottle of bollie? That way you can compare notes and even share a giggle about experiencing some of these treatments for the first time.

  1. Don’t wait until the kids are grown to have a mother-daughter spa day.

Maybe you’re a mom who wants to have a spa day with your own kids – or bring your teenage daughter along with her granny. For youngsters, this could be a whole new adventure and a lesson that everyone deserves a special time out for a pampering irrespective of age.

So, if you’re considering a Mother’s Day with a special difference this year, make sure Granny Mouse Country House & Spa is on your list.DSC_8382.jpgoms
