What better way to celebrate your mother figure this Mother’s Day than by going above and beyond? After the last two years of uncertainty and social distancing, hospitality venues being closed and travelling being limited, there’s no better time to take advantage of the ease of COVID-19 restrictions and of course, this beautiful weather, than this Mothering weekend! From brunches amongst olive groves to afternoon teas in the city, let’s show our loved ones how much they mean to us with these wonderfully curated experiences from our HIP Hotels. Brownie points will be guaranteed!
Raise a glass to the leading lady in your life this Mother’s Day and spoil her with the new “G & Tea” experience at Manetta’s Bar, located within the opulent surroundings of luxury boutique hotel, Flemings Mayfair. Situated in the beating heart of Mayfair, London, enjoy an assortment of freshly baked patisseries and macarons with lemon curd, clotted cream and homemade jams, beautifully presented on an elegant tiered stand, and indulge in the fragrant tea blends from East India Tea Company. Alongside this, you are also spoiled for choice of one of three refreshing and botanical gin tipples, including Whitley Neill Raspberry Gin, Salcombe Gin Rosé and Nicholson London Dry Gin.
Flemings’ “G & Tea” experience will run from Mother’s Day (Sunday 27th March), continuing every Wednesday - Saturday thereafter from 1pm – 4pm. Whether you’re booking in for Mother’s Day, or treating your leading queen in the coming months, elevate celebrations with Manetta’s indulgent “G & Tea”!
Treat your mother to the tranquil views of olive groves and picturesque alleys here at Masseria Dagilupi – a renovated olive mill in the heart of Italy’s charming Puglia. Known for its beautiful ancient towns, vastly beautiful seas and sumptuous cuisine, this picture-perfect Italian region provides the perfect setting for a relaxing Mother’s Day celebration. Whilst this iconic masseria doesn’t open its doors until April 8th, this is something definitely worth waiting for!
There’s so much to enjoy here at Dagilupi. From personalised yoga sessions to Ayurvedic massages in the shades of the millenary olive groves, this year this tranquil property has collaborated with the outstanding Chef Luisa Tricca; hosting weekly nights of pizza & focaccia, tapas & cocktails and tantalising barbecues in the pergola. Be sure to enjoy a tantalising picnic on the estate and indulge in a selection of Apulian delicacies, homemade focaccia, fresh olives and tasty biscotti. Relax in the serene atmosphere of your surroundings and take in all of Puglia’s natural beauty, right here at Masseria Dagilupi. Can you think of a better place to celebrate your mum than here?
Anyone else feel like they need an invigorating trip away to help recover from the stress of the last couple of years? We believe that a spa weekend away for both our mother’s and ourselves, is truly needed. So what are you waiting for? Escape to the charming meadows of the Cotswolds and book yourselves a stay at the elegant Cowley Manor. This authentic British getaway is a stately Grade II listed villa and has everything you could ever dream of, and more. Not to mention the blossoming of daffodils within the gardens have bloomed just in time for Mother’s Day!
Retreat to the manor’s multi award-winning C-Side Spa, and treat your mum to a rejuvenating range of massages, facials and specialised treatments. Boasting a huge selection of holistic facilities, including saunas and steam rooms, relaxation areas, indoor and outdoor pools, treatment rooms and a well-equipped gym, take a dip in the green-slated heated indoor pool and immerse in the natural beauty of the surroundings. After recharging those batteries in the spa, be sure to wander through the beautifully manicured grounds, before returning to the hotel restaurant for a delicious meal. A trip to Cowley Manor will make you never want to leave.
For those of you who want to embark on a quintessentially British Sunday lunch, look no further than Hurley House. A multi-award winning boutique hotel and restaurant in one of Berkshire’s lesser-known villages, this former pub truly raises the bar when it comes to hospitality standards. Not only do they provide the most intimate and beautifully-designed hotel rooms, but their cuisine is impeccable and cooked to perfection. It’s no wonder that it has become widely popular among tourists and Hollywood stars!
This Mothering Sunday, indulge in a mouth-watering Sunday lunch and soak up the stunning countryside surroundings of Berkshire with an alfresco meal in their garden. Choose from a delectable selection of traditional roasts and Hurley House classics; from 30-day-aged Beef Sirloin, served with tasty roasted potatoes and root vegetables, to a chipotle and lime cauliflower steak. If you’re wanting to try something a little different, be sure to indulge in their restaurant’s incredible homemade pizzas, made from a 72-hour fermented sourdough. Pair your meal with a glass of wine or two, raise a glass to your mum for being the incredible woman she is, and allow Hurley House to give you an authentic taste of the British countryside!
Escape to the stunning coastline of Sorrento and find yourself at the exclusive Maison La Minervetta. Offering guests the most sublime views over the Bay of Naples, and the fishing port of Marina Grande, the contagious Mediterranean atmosphere makes for the perfect Mother’s Day getaway.
This lovingly decorated abode was designed by architect Marco de Luca, where stripes and nautical patterns take centre stage – you’ll feel like you’ve landed right in the centre of a Mediterranean haven! Spend your days wandering around the beautiful Italian town, sit by the beach with some local cuisine and a cocktail in hand, be inspired by the colourful fishing boats on your doorstep, before returning to the hotel’s sun terrace for the most spectacular sunset views. Whilst the hotel doesn’t have its own restaurant, its delicious buffet breakfast is a must-try! A trip to Maison La Minervetta will not only place you in the perfect location to indulge in Sorrento’s charming atmosphere, the picture-perfect photo opportunities and the chance to create memories with your mum will last a lifetime!
