The pandemic and the extended lockdowns have perhaps taken the most toll on mothers. Right from managing online schooling, daily chores, cooking for the family while also working from home, mothers have truly proved why they are regarded as the pillars of strength in a family. The upcoming Mother’s Day offers the perfect opportunity to thank her for her care and amazing support by gifting her a special holiday – designed around her favourite things. To help plan the perfect holiday, Thomas Cook (India) Ltd., India’s leading omnichannel travel services company, and its Group Company, SOTC Travel have put together a list of top recommendations to give her the perfect gift this Mother’s Day.
From closer to home staycations, spa-cation, sea-cation, a leisurely weekend getaway to the cooler climes or a hill resort, relaxation at a beach resort or a week long holiday with her best friends, the Companies have put together a list of immersive experiences she is sure to cherish for a long time!
Gift your mother a delightful chocolatier experience with as she explores the Lindt Home of Chocolate in Zurich, Switzerland. Enrol her for a patisserie course at the Le Cordon Bleu or a perfume-making workshop, cruise the Seine with a group of close friends and immerse in the most captivating sights of France or explore the quaint villages in the South of France. Closer to home, allow her to indulge in art and the unique architectural elements of the Louvre in Abu Dhabi; retail therapy in Dubai; give her a glimpse into the culture and cuisine of Thailand; take her on a historical culinary trail in Penang and a masterclass with a local chef; a safe and fun Singapore for a diversity of unique experiences for mothers to choose from – right from walking tours, bar hopping with friends on a women’s only trip or a high-tea/brunch at the Raffles; rejuvenate in the haven of luxury as she unwinds in overwater villas or experiences thrilling water sports in the Maldives.
Cruise the high seas with a host of entertainment, fun activities, indulgent food and wine experiences at gourmet restaurants aboard the Norwegian Cruise Line, Costa Cruises; and Cordelia in India.
Wellness is a great idea to help mothers relax and get away from the daily hustle-bustle of city life and we recommend a rejuvenation at the traditional spas of Thailand or Bali or experience Ayurveda wellness in Ananda in the Himalayas and Kerala; also a laid back cruise on the backwaters. Safari experiences for mothers who love adventure at India’s leading national reserves including Gir, Corbett, Ranthambore, Binsar, etc.
