Relaxing Experiences That Are Unbelievably Real
Treat Mom to a Healing Honey Treatment – using raw, 100% pure local honey – at the Four Seasons Resort Orlando’s spa or a 30-minute facial using cruelty-free, vegan ingredients at Clean Your Dirty Face.
Meanwhile, a meditation class following Deepak Chopra’s teachings at the Chopra Mind-Body Zone and Spa or a sunrise paddle board yoga class on beautiful Lake Ivanhoe near downtown Orlando with Epic Paddle Adventures make for perfect (and unique!) ways to focus on overall well-being.
Or spend the day at Discovery Cove, an all-inclusive retreat where Mom can relax on white sandy beaches, hand-feed exotic birds and even swim with dolphins.
