May is a month for mothers. (The alliteration, the glorious spring weather, fresh flowers...I'm here for it). It’s the perfect month to surprise your mom with a getaway somewhere special. Hotels tend to be less crowded this time of year (before the summer rush), when, in many locales, the temperature is juuuust right.

Luckily for us, many of my favorite getaways are offering exclusive deals to help make your Mother's Day (and month!) even sweeter. Now it's their turn for some extra — and much deserved — pampering. 

I'm also debuting a special feature: a spotlight (or a few) on recent hotel openings I'm extra excited about. To kick it off, a trendy boutique stay in Tel Aviv, a hot-off-the-press oasis in CDMX and a revamped jewel on the French Riviera...

Tell your mom to pack her bags, book your trip with me and unlock exclusive perks and upgrades at no extra cost.

Enchantment Resort: 5th night free

This dreamy resort sits amid the stunning red rocks of Sedona's Boynton Canyon. Guests can hike, bike and immerse themselves in the property, which is blissfully separated (but not by too much) from civilization. After an adventure-filled day soaking up the energy of Sedona's famed "vortex" with mom, opt for masterful treatments at Mii Amo, Enchantment's sister hotel & spa and next-door neighbor. End the day with a locally sourced, Southwestern-inspired dinner at Che Ah Chi, accompanied by unbeatable views of the surrounding canyon.

This Santa Monica gem combines New England charm and West Coast personality. Guests stay in stylish accommodations, and dine on local, seasonal cuisine. Rent a baby blue beach cruiser, sign up for a surf lesson, recline in a poolside cabaña or grab your most stylish pair of sunnies and peruse the nearby boutiques. Another plus? Shutters is a pet-friendly hotel.

Four Seasons Resort Jackson Hole: 6th night free

Spring and early summer are arguably the best times to visit Jackson Hole, when the wildflowers bloom, the weather is warm (perfect for hiking) and the Tetons are even more marvelous against a cloudless blue sky. The Four Seasons Resort Jackson Hole, in the famed Teton Village, is the perfect home base from which to explore the natural surroundings, and take advantage of the charming Jackson Hole itself, with chic boutiques, cafés and restaurants.

Fora Perks:

Santa Fe's luxury hotel is a celebration of the area's rich cultural heritage. The minimalist, Southwestern decor is at once cozy and stylish, and each of the 58 rooms features handcrafted details and exposed wooden ceilings, evoking the traditional Pueblo style. Opt for an expert-led tequila tasting, rent bikes to explore the town, marvel at the property's collection of local art and savor the locally sourced, farm-to-table cuisine at Anasazi Restaurant (a must for wine enthusiasts, too). Plus, when you book with Fora, you'll unlock exclusive Rosewood Elite perks.

Learn how to optimize your sleep, curate a personal skincare routine with beauty experts, take yoga and fitness classes... the list goes on. And the property's two restaurants highlight the best seasonal ingredients from local Connecticut farms.

Hurtigruten Expedition Cruise: Bring a guest for free, or receive 50% off for a solo trip

If you haven't heard, Fora is all about cruises these days — and Hurtigruten Expeditions is a community favorite. Their cruises are just as adventurous as they are luxurious (think on-board infinity pools, al fresco dining and sleek cabins), with routes in the Galápagos Islands, Antarctica, Iceland and beyond. The Hurtigruten experience is all about discovery, giving guests the opportunity to learn from dedicated expedition leaders and professional landscape photographers while on board. And this month, travelers who book a cabin can bring a guest for free (mother-daughter trip, anyone?). Or, they'll receive 50% off a full single occupancy fare if they're traveling solo.

Fine Print: Available for certain expeditions / itineraries for bookings made now through May 31st 2023.

New opening alerts: R48 Hotel and Garden, Colima 71 & Carlton Cannes

I could not be more excited about R48, an ultra-chic hotel in Tel Aviv. Like your coolest friend's stylish home, the hotel is a study in sophisticated details, sleek minimalism and Bauhaus-inspired design. (The interiors were crafted by the famed Studio Christian Liaigre.)

At the art-obsessed Colima 71, in Mexico City, there are 16 large, delightful rooms, all with kitchenettes. In the morning, visit the excellent coffee bar for a jolt with homemade almond milk, best paired with a pastry, which they source from the famed (and utterly charming) Panadería Rosetta.

Another notable debut — or rather, reopening (the result of one of France's most extensive hotel renovations in centuries, no less): Carlton Cannes, a regal, sparkling, unbelievably glamorous masterpiece on the Côte d'Azur. If any hotel is worthy of such a prime location in a historically glitzy locale, it most certainly is this one.
