Treat mum in The City this Mother’s Day
Celebrate the fabulous mother figures in your life this Mother’s Day – Sunday 9 May. There’s so many ways to show your appreciation and love with a variety of luxe experiences and thoughtful gifts available on Queen Street Mall and surrounds in Brisbane City. From indulgent spa treatments to boutique shopping sprees, here’s some inspired ideas to spoil mum this Mother’s Day.
Glam girls getaway
Gather the females in your fam for a multigenerational staycay. Book a Weekend Getaway package at the 5-star Hilton Brisbane on the Queen Street Mall for convenient access to the precinct’s shopping, entertainment and dining, or stay in and take advantage of the amazing amenities within the hotel. Make it a weekend to remember with daily breakfast, a late 2pm check-out and Wi-Fi on hand to share those memories.
At the top end of the mall, check-in to the Hyatt Regency Brisbane. Opt for the Staycation and Breakfast package to enjoy breakfast and late check-out for a girls’ weekend away with your number-one mum. With the onsite restaurant and bar and pool terrace to lounge around, it’s the perfect spot to do as little or as much as you please.
Chic eats and drinks
Spoil mum and grandma with a high tea spread or clink glasses for cocktail hour. Room with Roses offers its iconic high teas within the heritage-listed Brisbane Arcade for an elegant daytime soiree. The Champagne High Tea allows you to add a glass of bubbles to any high tea menu – we love the Deluxe High Tea with delicate ribbon sandwiches, scones piled high with jam and Chantilly cream and homemade sweets served with tea or coffee.
For high teas exclusively for Mother’s Day, book into Hyatt Regency Brisbane’s Mother’s Day High Tea for sweet treats and savoury delights crafted by the head chef, complete with a two-hour Piper-Heidsieck Rosé Sauvage package.
She’ll also adore the sumptuous Mother’s Day Chandon High Tea spread at Treasury Brisbane, featuring a selection of sweet and savoury morsels paired with elegant La Maison Du Thé French teas and a 2.5-hour Chandon bubbles package.
If classy cocktails are more mum’s thing, head to Jimmy’s on the Mall. The popular all-day restaurant offers two levels of seating so you can survey all the action in the heart of the Queen Street Mall while you dine. Book a seat on the upper deck and settle in with colourful cocktails and refreshing spritzers created by the expert bartenders with delectable bar bites to share with mum
A pampering spa treatment is the perfect way to express your love. Whether it’s some me time for mum or a girls’ bonding experience, Stephanies Spa Retreat at Sofitel Brisbane has an extensive menu of blissful options. We can’t go past the Divine Princess or Sacred Queen signature treatments that are guaranteed to make your mum feel like a brand-new woman.
You can also gift her an hour or two of soothing relaxation. Massage Philosophy in The Myer Centre and Wintergarden offers a tranquil respite seven days a week. Treat mum to an aromatherapy and hot stone massage with reflexology for the ultimate in mind-body balance and expert attention.
