Tips on Having the Best Mother-Daughter Spa Day

There’s nothing more memorable than mothers and daughters spending time together. Let that sink in for a minute. Aren’t mothers and daughters supposed to fuss with each other over the littlest things? That messy bedroom. The crazy hair colors. Mom wearing pajama pants to the grocery store. Put the fussing aside and spend some quality together. Plan a day or weekend of pampering and discover how much you enjoy each other’s company. Read our tips for having a mother-daughter spa getaway at a lodge and spa near Atlanta. Sorry dads, but this one is for girls only!

A Day for the Girls

There’s no better gift for mothers and daughters than a day of bonding and relaxation. The Spa at Callaway Resort & Gardens specializes in indulgence. Try one of the spectacular spa packages and enjoy a massage, facial, and manicure/pedicure. Maximize your together time with a massage for two tailored to mothers and daughters. It’s a great way to get in some extra bonding time. Check with a spa concierge, who can help make your spa time a memory to cherish.

Stick Your Toes in the Sand

When planning your spa getaway, don’t forget to plan for beach time. Enjoy the water and sandy beach at Callaway Resort and Garden’s beautiful Robin Lake. If you both enjoy reading, gift each other with a special book. Grab a couple of beach chairs and an umbrella and spend an afternoon reading together. Or skip the beach and enjoy some pool time to soak up some rays. Make things even more fun and read the same book. You might find you spend more time talking than reading!

Nails for Two

Remember when you were a little girl and couldn’t wait for Mom to paint your nails? Now that you’re all grown up, getting a manicure is even more fun, especially if you do it together. Spa manicures and pedicures include skin exfoliation, hand and arm or foot and leg massage, a soothing moisturizing mask, nail shaping, and your choice of nail color. Like mother-daughter massages, side-by-side mani-pedis are a fun way to deepen your bond together.

Hit the Trails

In between spa time, enjoy hiking or biking among flowers and trees native to the beautiful state of Georgia. Late summer is the perfect time to view the grand southern magnolia or the garden’s brilliant plum leaf azaleas. Blueberries also flourish here, and in summer their tiny white flowers turn into delicious fruit. When you pack your spa slippers, don’t forget your hiking shoes. If you prefer to pedal, you can rent rent bikes at the Discovery Center. Whether you choose two feet or two wheels, have fun exploring 2,500 acres of nature.

Beauty Is Skin Deep

When you extend your spa day to include the entire weekend, you’ll have even more time for pampering. Reserve a room at the Lodge at Callaway Resort & Gardens, the premier spa resort near Atlanta. Wake up and take an early morning walk then head over to the spa for mother-daughter facials. The skin care menu features a selection of luxurious treatments, including an age-defying facial and a facial created for teenage girls.

Schedule a Fun Adventure

If you have four nights together, why not top off your mother-daughter spa getaway with the Summer Family Adventure? If you want to combine adventure with indulgence and relaxation, you’ll spend four nights on a Cottage or Villa. A full kitchen, living, and dining area mean you’ll enjoy all the comforts of home. By day, attend tennis or golf clinics, gardening workshops, or arts and crafts. In the evening, enjoy special dining or a summer movie. Now that’s what we call mother-daughter fun time!

If you’re excited about spending quality mother-daughter time, book your spa getaway today at Callaway Resort & Gardens. We look forward to pampering you!
