Spa day for mum and daughter!
Whether you’re looking for a treatment in a spa or just a simple mani pedi, all women (mamas or not), deserve to be pampered once in a while! But feeling like a queen doesn’t mean you have to spend a fortune, and sometimes you like to share the love with your daughter for a fun Mum-and-Me day out (if the boys want to join, there are treatments for them, too!). We’ve rounded up the best places where you can bond with your young ones and get spoiled by amazing treatments at the same time!
As well as the Mum Series and a complete menu of spa and nail services, Spa Botanica has a Kids & Teens Spa Menu dedicated to treating the little ones, featuring facials and massages aimed at promoting healthy skin, especially for adolescents! They have special Mommy and Princess Treat packages (which include a head and neck massage and an aromatic facial) start at $2,590 Monday through Thursday and $2,790 Friday through Sunday.
