“What better way to make mom smile than with a relaxed holiday experience that she’ll be sure to remember for a long time to come?” says Sharmila Ragunanan, Marketing Manager for Dream Hotels & Resorts.

“Whether she’d prefer lazing on the beach or an outdoorsy winter getaway in the bushveld, our many different hotels, resorts and lodges make the perfect base for moms and families to truly make the most of their time away.”

A beach holiday in Scottburgh

Indulge in some ocean-fresh seafood with the crashing waves in the background and a crisp glass of white wine in hand, spend hours soaking up the warm sunshine on the beach, perfect your swing on the golf course or pop into the spa. The Blue Marlin Hotel is a great option for a trip to Scottburgh and is in close proximity to the beach, an array of popular restaurants and some of KwaZulu-Natal’s best golf courses.

Enjoy “mom and me” time with the Blue Marlin’s Mother’s Day spa specials, valid for the month of May. A revitalising facial is priced at R599 for two, a Swedish full body massage, pedicure and manicure at R699 per person, a pedicure at R199 and a full body Swedish message at R310. Call 039 978 3361/072 540 9187 or email to book.  

A nature-packed getaway in the Pilanesberg

Moms can enjoy scenic bushwalks or safaris in the malaria-free Pilanesberg National Park or take the flight of a lifetime in a hot air balloon where she can appreciate the beauty of the region from an entirely different perspective. Finfoot Lake Reserve is the ideal setting for a comfortable holiday in the Greater Pilanesberg. Choose a cosy chalet or stylish self-catering villa, all with views of the nearby Vaalkop Dam. Stay for as little as R3042 per room per night. Treat mom to a delicious three course dinner on Saturday night, filled with traditional and local favourites.

An Alpine retreat in the Berg
For a cosy retreat in the mountains, you can’t beat Little Switzerland Resort, nestled at the foot of the Northern Drakensberg. Wooden cottages, indoor log fires and a stable filled with horses and ponies, adds to the Alpine charm of this mountain retreat, and guarantees a holiday to delight the whole family.

Settle in for a cosy Mother’s Day lunch priced at R250 per adult and R125 per child under 12 years old.

A Balinese escape in Ballito
Tucked away in subtropical gardens in a coastal forest reserve, just a five-minute drive from Ballito, Zimbali Lodge whisks you off to a secluded and pristine tropical sanctuary, far away from the hustle and bustle. Once on the property, you simply don’t have to leave. There are ample opportunities to relax or get active – doing as much or as little as you please.

This Mother’s Day, celebrate the special woman in your life with a high tea and spa treat at Zimbali Lodge.

A whimsical vacation in the Winelands Hop from wine farm to wine farm sampling the best wines in South Africa or sit down to a 5-star meal at a gourmet restaurant. No matter what mom has got planned for the itinerary when in the Winelands, luxury is always a given. It is a good idea to spend some time in the French-inspired town of Franschhoek with a stay at Le Franschhoek Hotel & Spa. Treat mom to a well-deserved massage with views of the Wemmershoek Mountains or to a long stroll through the blooming onsite gardens. Stay from just R1720 per room per night.
