Have you tried any of our Ayurvedic treatments up in The Pavitra? #Repost @rosielondoner ・・・ For a "Synchronised Ayurvedic Massage" you're led into this chocolate box of a room, with incense burning and the sound of the ocean wafting in on the breeze. Stripped naked, you lay down on a cushioned alter. Two angels pour ribbons of warm, scented oils all over you before massaging every inch of you, in symmetry on each side. You're moved into five different positions before they sit at either end as one massages your feet, and the other your head. After an hour and a half you're left alone to meditate and enjoy the sunshine streaming in through the open windows. A bucket list treatment for sure! 🙏🏼🌴#BodyHoliday #StLucia #Wellness #Ayurveda
We would love for a holiday at one of the world’s best destination spa – BodyHoliday in the Eastern Caribbean Sea. It will definitely destress us from the stress of motherhood and work.

The Wellness Centre is a sanctuary where we can enjoy soothing treatments to help us recharge. A personalised schedule of spa activities can be arranged to ensure a well-deserved break. The resort is set on a secluded cove of white sand beach at the edge of the Caribbean Sea, surrounded by tropical gardens and rainforest. It is a perfect location for busy mums like us to enjoy the nature and unwind.

Shopping is our favourite past time and we would never say no to a shopping spree in of the best shopping cities in the world. A trip to London would be a GREAT Mother’s Day gift!
Oxford Street in London takes the whole shopping experience to a new level with collections seasons ahead of Singapore, more than 300 shops, designer outlets and landmark stores. The most glamorous window displays together with beautiful historical architecture.
After a great shopping afternoon, there’s nothing like a good cup of English tea and good old scones with clotted cream and fresh jam at The Ritz – one of London’s top 10 places for the English style afternoon tea.

#5: ADVENTUROUS MOM – Yosemite National Park Weekend, the United States of America
MORNIN' SUNSHINE ☀️ I'm definitely not a morning person (Maybe after 3 giant cups of coffee). HOWEVER, there's no time for sleepin' in when you visit a park. If you miss the sunset, you may as well have just stayed home. These are the quietest, most beautiful times in the park. Just be sure to take your coffee to go.

Yosemite National Park in California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains is one of the best locations to satisfy an adventurous mom’s wanderlust. The dramatic waterfalls, giant sequoias, abundant wildlife, and awe-inspiring cliffs, like Half Dome and El Capitan is definitely what I would want for a Mother’s Day present for an adventure.
Flights to San Francisco are available HERE.
