Treat Mum to a night’s stay at Watsons Bay

Finding a gift for Mum that’s as special as she is often proves quite the challenge.  Rather than buying something material, sometimes it can be nice to give an experience. Mums love it, especially if that experience is shared with you.

So, if you’re looking to really impress this year, we’ve planned the perfect itinerary for a night away at the Bay. Whether you’ve got an active, doer kind of mum or a mum that prefers to kick back with a glass of wine, the Bay has you covered. With our close proximity to the sea as well as the city, there truly is something for everyone.

So here’s what we propose…

First things first, drive or catch a ferry to our iconic harbour side hotel. Check in to one of our boutique rooms (choosing between a view of the dazzling Sydney harbour, the lush greenery of Robertson Park or the picturesque Watsons Bay residential areas).

Once you’ve settled in, head on over to our iconic Beach Club for a seaside lunch. Soak up some sunshine, feast on a fresh seafood platter and sip on a cocktail whilst overlooking beautiful Watsons Bay beach. This should put you (and mum) in holiday mode!

After lunch, you might like to check out one of the Bay’s beautiful walks. For the active type, you can walk all the way around the South Head peninsula where you’ll enjoy breathtaking views of Sydney harbour and the Pacific Ocean. Make sure you visit the renowned ocean cliff, The Gap, too! Alternatively, if you’re experiencing a bit of a food coma, you may feel like a leisurely stroll along the beach front to visit the stunning hidden away beach and residential area, Camp Cove.

If you’re a little hot and bothered from your walk, take a dip at Watsons Bay beach, Camp Cove or Parsley Bay (or if you’re a bit ambitious, why not beach hop and visit them all!) They’re all beautiful and worth seeing if you have time.

By now you’re probably just about ready to head back to your room and get ready for dinner. With our extensive Beach Club menu, there’s plenty to try! Maybe you’re in the mood for an Italian feast (we’ve got quite the pasta selection) or perhaps some roasted fish and veg if you’re after something lighter. Whatever tickles your fancy it’s time to sit back, relax, enjoy some quality time with mum and watch the sunset over Sydney harbour.

After a restful night’s sleep, you and mum will be ready for day 2 at the Bay. Head on down to our Hampton’s style Sunset Room where you’ll enjoy a buffet breakfast. There is a delicious spread of fresh fruit, yoghurts and granola or if you prefer a la carte we’ve got all your classics… Benedict, green eggs and ham, smashed avo, waffles… you name it!  Oh and don’t worry, we didn’t forget coffee.

After a pretty action packed first day, I think it’s time for you and mum to check into SOL Spa, located in our neighbouring suburb, Vaucluse. Whether you’re after a relaxing de-stress massage, an invigorating remedial massage targeting knots and tension or a purifying facial, SOL Spa has what you need. You’ll also be treated to a complimentary consultation prior to your treatment to ensure you have an exceptional experience that is customised to meet your needs. Make sure you arrive early to enjoy one of their organic herbal teas in the relaxation lounge!

This will certainly be a Mother’s Day to remember and an experience you and mum will treasure forever. Only downside… it’ll be hard to top next year!
