Better Than Breakfast In Bed: Mother’s Day At The Rocks
Burnt toast and overcooked eggs – lucky mum! While it’s the thought that counts, maybe this year you could think to take the woman who carried you for nine months (then raised you and cared for you and cleaned up after you and never once asked for even a word of thanks!) out for a very special day of food, drink, and relaxation, and fun.
Indulgence, Fit For A Queen
She bathed you, washed your hair, and helped you relax when you were frightened (those nightmares really impacted her quality of sleep) and stressed (HSC exams, anyone?), so now you can pay her back. At Endota Spa you can treat mum to an indulgent one hour organic facial and 30 minute relaxation melting massage for only $125, which can be presented in a gift voucher (this is Monday to Friday only, for the entirety of May, so Mum can de-stress during the week and feel refreshed for Mother’s Day lunch, or simply any time she chooses). Treat mum to a Pamper at the Park hotel stay at the Sydney Park Hyatt (pictured), including luxurious overnight accommodation, full breakfast for two and $150 credit to enjoy in The Spa or for one of their many fantastic dining experiences. Use the offer code ‘Pamper’ when making reservations.
The Food Of Love (Is Food)
Sake Restaurant and Bar is open for lunch and dinner, with their delectable a la carte menu featuring all the favourites, alongside extensive wine, cocktail and sake selections. At The Glenmore Hotel, she’ll get a complimentary glass of MUMM champagne on arrival when you book a table. Waterfront and Wolfies want to help you show mum how special she is, with a rose and chocolates on arrival, a limited a la carte menu and a lucky door prize, served with spectacular harbour views. The Cut Bar and Grill is offering up an a la carte fine dining menu featuring premium cuts of steak and the freshest sustainable seafood that pair perfectly with their extensive list of wines, champagne and cocktails. At The Australian Heritage Hotel, Mum will receive a complimentary chocolate fondant dessert with every booking. Enjoy a lovely dinner at Pony Dining, with a complimentary glass of sparkling for all mums. And at Pei Modern (pictured), Mum can indulge in a special Mother’s Day feast from their modern, fresh, produce-oriented menu, for $110pp, with a glass of bubbles just for her.
The Gift of Gifts
Of course, even with a day of wonderful gourmet dining, wine, and utter relaxation, Mum probably still deserves a keepsake to take home. After all, how many birthday presents has she got you over the years, only for you to respond on her birthday with yet another handmade card? Regardless of what type of Mum she is, you’re sure to find something she’ll love at The Rocks Markets, nestled by the harbour. It’s open Saturdays and Sundays 10am-5pm. And don’t forget to browse the speciality shops in The Rocks, with designer products, unique handcrafted gifts, and so much more.
Wander the cobblestones at The Rocks and say a big thank you to Mum this Mother’s Day. (And then don’t forget to thank her every other day after that!)
