So I’m sorry as I’m sure everyone is totally over Mother’s Day by now but I haven’t had chance to write about mine yet, and it was my first one so I’ve gotta get it written down!
As far as I can gather Mother’s Day isn’t celebrated in Seychelles. If it is there is certainly no big deal made of it and no holidays here are commercialised like they are everywhere else I’ve been! There are no special mothers day cards, gifts etc!
Despite it not being a big deal here its something we still celebrated and I was lucky enough to have my mum and dad here too so we could all celebrate together!
On Saturday, Mum and I went to the gorgeous Waterfront Spa at the Black Parrot Suites in the Coco de Mer Hotel. The view from the treatment room is absolutely amazing, we both had the ‘Signature Scrub’ which was made up of honey, sugar and orange. After the scrub you have a shower which looks right out onto the Ocean its so so beautiful I didn’t want to get out. That’s followed by a massage using an oil that is suited to your “element”. Apparently I’m fire….that didn’t surprise anyone too much!!! I didn’t take any pictures there, but here is one from their website.
On the Sunday we all had a lovely day when we went for Lunch at the Beach Bar and Grill in the Constance Lemuria Hotel. It’s a gorgeous place to have lunch. It is built into the rocks and overlooks the beach, the food was absolutely incredible. Dad treated us all to a lovely bottle of champagne! Arthur had a little bit of everyones food but mostly he loved the chocolate Ice cream!!!
We went onto the beach and had a swim afterwards. The weather was pretty overcast and in the morning we had some pretty epic thunder which was really needed to break up some of the humidity! My mum is a big lover of storms so she loved it! Arthur’s little Billabong swim/sun suit is so cute. Mum and Dad brought it out for him, we’ve been getting lots of use out of it already, he seems really happy and comfy in it too!
So that was my mothers day weekend, I loved it! I hope you all had a lovely time with your families!
