Mother and Daughter in Kitchen

What do you do if your holiday in Barbados coincides with Mother’s Day? Or maybe you’re moving to Barbados with your family and forgot to plan a day centred around the matriarch of your household. No worries. We’ve prepared three activities that you can plan separately or together to treat mom to a day she deserves, Bajan style.

A Bajan Mother’s Day Lunch or Dinner

There’s nothing more traditionally Bajan than booking a table at a restaurant for Mother’s Day! Restaurants are usually fully booked on this day, so you’ll want to move quickly. You can try traditional options like L’Azure Restaurant at The Crane or Atlantis Barbados on the East Coast for authentic Bajan and Caribbean cuisine.

For a spectacular dinner option, there’s Zen at The Crane Resort. Rated No. 1 for food in Barbados by Zagat, you’ll treat mom to a delicious authentic Japanese and Thai meal, complemented by an all-glass frontage offering spectacular views of Crane Beach.

Taste Rum by a Female Master Blender

If your mom is the more adventurous type, she might enjoy a “rum”-bunctious tour at Mount Gay Visitor Centre where she will enjoy rum made by the island’s only and one of the world’s few female Master Blenders.

For a fully immersive experience that’ll have the lady of the family feeling like a Master Blender herself, book her and the family one of the two tours at their St. Lucy distillery: the Distillery Experience or the Premium Rum Flight Experience. In either of these two tours, she will have unparalleled access to Mount Gay’s estate including the distillation and fermentation houses. At the end of this fun day, your mom might be eyeing a Master Blender title in her future too.

Yoga at Sunrise, Spa Day til Sunset

For the hard-working mother, a day of pampering is the perfect treat. Try yoga at sunrise on the patio of any of our Beach Houses by The Crane villas. Located on the beautiful East Coast, our properties at Beach Houses are privy to the most majestic sunrises. So majestic, she will be voluntarily positioning herself in the downward dog pose every morning.

Continue this good treatment with a spa day at The Crane Resort’s Serenity Spa. Choose from a variety of massages, facials, body treatments, hand and feet therapy options, waxing services or one of the custom Crane packages.
