A home spa treatment for Mother’s Day

The team will settle everything – massage equipment, fresh linen and even relaxing music. Mum won’t need to lift a finger!
One option for pampering mum is with the Tranquillity Massage Retreat ($225, usually $269; 120 minutes). The two-hour session begins with an organic scrub that deeply exfoliates the skin to help reduce the appearance of cellulite. After a quick shower, a pressure-point massage ensues, opening up energy pathways. This is followed by the Aleyda Signature Massage, which combines healing modalities, spa relaxation and aromatherapy using Aleyda’s freshly blended Tranquility essential oil. Special attention is paid to the neck, shoulders, lower back and glutes to leave mum feeling refreshed and revitalised.
