SANDESTIN – This Mother’s Day, moms can forget about the to-do list and focus on relaxing their mind and body as soon as they step foot into Hotel Effie, the new luxury property at the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. The hotel is offering a day of pampering, both for hotel guests and locals.
Upon check-in, moms will be greeted with a cool towel to unwind, a handcrafted cocktail to decompress and a warm homemade cookie (with a secret family recipe) to cozy up in a beautifully designed Hotel Effie room with commissioned art by Brenden Parker, a local mixed-media artist.
A Mother’s Day Brunch is planned at Ovide, an award-winning restaurant by James Beard Award-winning chef Hugh Acheson, that embraces the fresh, forward flavors and local seafood of the Gulf Coast. Guests can enjoy a carving station, seafood display, a create-your-own Bloody Mary station or unlimited “Mom”osas and more! Reservations can be made between 9 a.m. to noon, and 1 to 4 p.m. here.
Moms can then indulge in a day at Spa Lilliana on the second floor, welcomed with a mimosa, a rose and a complimentary gift. At Spa Lilliana, moms will receive a tranquil pampering experience with a vast menu of spa treatments to choose from.
After rejuvenating at the spa, moms can further their pampered experience with a nice stroll on Hotel Effie’s exclusive beach at sunset, before heading to Ara Rooftop Pool and Lounge for light refreshments and stargazing.
