A Sumptuous Spa Trip
A luxurious way to treat mom and you for Mother’s Day is a trip to a Parisian Spa. There are many to choose from in the city of light and love but the spa at the Mandarin Oriental is one of our favorites. Spread across two floors, this haven of relaxation boasts a 900 square meter space, one of the largest in Paris. With specially designed couples’ suites, mommy and you can unwind together, enjoying your treatments side by side, tailored to both of your needs. As well as a 14-meter lap pool, the spa also has an oriental herbal steam room, vitality pool and a spa boutique. Amongst their extensive list of treatments, you can choose from titles such as “Paris Passion” “Jet Lag Comforter” and “Bathology” each containing their own ethos and expected outcomes.
Chic Cocktail At Le Carmen
The ideal place for gin loving mommies everywhere! Le Carmen, located on a side street near the Moulin Rouge is a hidden gem in the heart of Pigalle. Here, a once ornate town house has been converted into a luxury cocktail bar, specializing in infused gin. The décor is just as lavish as the sculpted cornices, with plush seats, quirky giant bird cages to while away the hours and low hanging chandeliers. The most exciting thing about Le Carmen however is the bartenders. Experts in their field, simply tell your server what kind of flavors you like, sweet or salty, mint or floral and they will concoct the perfect aperitif for your taste buds. If you don’t like gin, there are other options too, so you won’t have to miss out!
Lastly, a classic idea, a bouqet of flowers… Mom’s will always appreciate a beautiful arrangement on this special day.
