Make unforgettable memories with your mum from London to The Seychelles

Whether it’s exploring exotic destinations or indulging in pampering closer to home, our Mother’s Day round up of luxury breaks is designed to offer something spectacular for all deserving mums.

It’s time to ditch the clichés and give her the VIP treatment she demands. From breath-taking countryside breaks to far flung serene spa retreats, we’ve curated the perfect mix of sophistication, exhilaration and relaxation to make this Mother’s Day one to remember.

Whilst we all love flowers, perfume and chocolates, this year is about creating unforgettable moments and memories for your loving mama (and grandma too!).

Let’s take a look at some of the destinations that are offering something extraordinary both at home and away…


An unforgettable Mother’s Day experience like no other awaits at The Adria, a luxurious hotel nestled in the heart of South Kensington.

Your mum will no doubt revel in their exquisite afternoon tea experience enjoyed from the comfort of this beautiful Victorian townhouse hotel, which is renowned for its unparalleled hospitality. Here, every minute detail is thoughtfully curated to ensure a memorable experience. As it’s Mother’s Day, this is the time to go all out and enjoy every treat they have on offer.

To celebrate Mother’s Day, the Adria is offering a special Afternoon Tea experience, completed with Lanson champagne.

Delight in a delectable array of sweet and savoury treats, perfectly paired with the finest blends from Newby teas or perhaps enjoy a tiple of acclaimed Lanson Champagne as each bite is savoured.

I suggest you settle into a comfy armchair by the fireside in the charming Drawing Room of the hotel to relax and spend a delightful afternoon with your mother in such opulent surroundings. What’s not to love?

An abode of elegance and charm, The Adria is just a stone’s throw away from London’s world-renowned museums, the Royal Albert Hall, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and a gentle stroll from the designer delights of Harrods, offering the perfect location to create cherished memories with those who matter most.
