It’s almost that time of year again, that time where we show our mothers how much we appreciate them. That one day where we do something out of the ordinary to treat them and make them feel loved. That one day called Mother’s Day.

To help you get a head start on your Mother’s Day plans, we’ve summarised some of the best events, activities and ideas on how to treat your mom on this special day.


Book a Spa Day

Cape Town has many world-class spas that are the perfect treat for your mom. Send her for a massage, mani and pedi, or a full package, and let her unwind in style.



Singing, dancing waiters

Get served and entertained by talented performers while enjoying a four-course set menu at Stardust Theatrical Dining. Start with canapes, perhaps spiced lamb croquettes with niçoise salsa. Then comes the starters, like a Mediterranean cheese souffle, served on sauce mornay. The main platters include Portuguese prawn and grilled chicken skewers topped with coriander yoghurt. Top it all off with fresh berry cheesecake and chocolate malva pudding.


Spa and Jazz Day at the Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel

The Labrissa Spa is offering a morning and afternoon bliss for two that includes a deeply relaxing massage, included in the package is a high tea for two. There will also be Sunday Jaz lunch at the Oasis Bistro at the hotel with a buffet of Mediterranean inspired dishes, accompanied by Cape Town Jazz legend Alvin Dyers.
