Indulge mom with one of two packages at the spa at The Ritz-Carlton Georgetown.
Mother’s Day is almost here, which means you have an excuse to pamper the leading lady in your life. So after you’re done lunching—or calling if you’re far away—consider giving your mother, sister, grandmother, or dear friend the gift of relaxation. Area spas have created special packages, and special pricing, just for her. And hey, if you decide to pick up a package for yourself, we won’t tell.
A visit to Karma by Erwin Gomez is sure to leave her feeling pampered. Headed by celebrity makeup artist Gomez, the warm yet industrial space is a welcoming respite, with its dark walls, tranquil treatment room, and friendly staff. Gift the mom in your life with an anti-aging facial ($89), which includes a deep cleansing and exfoliation and “collagen-boosting peptides,” as well as a complimentary lip polish. Or treat her to a complete haircut, style, and makeup session with Gomez’s team of artists ($139). All mothers are also given a complimentary amuse bouche sorbet and a glass of wine with their service. Offer valid Tuesdays to Fridays until May 31, 2013. 1104 24th St. NW, 202-293-3333
Another option is one of two Mother’s Day specials at The Ritz-Carlton Georgetown. First up, a package that includes a 50-minute massage, foot scrub, restorative or calming spinal rejuvenation (it includes a massage with an infused oil blend), and a 25-minute instant radiance facial ($180). Or, for $250, she’ll receive everything featured in the first package but a longer, tailored facial at 50 minutes (we love that). Special valid through the end of May; spa guests receive complimentary valet parking. 3100 South St., NW, 202-912-4175
If she’s hankering to see the harbor, book her a stay at Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore. The elegant hotel is offering a package ($860) that includes one overnight visit, a 60-minute yoga class, flowers (so you can check that to-do off your list), and much more. Plus, she’ll experience the age-intervention facial, featuring a three-layer mask, and the spa signature warm wrap and massage ease treatment, which includes a full-body exfoliation and massage. She’ll definitely feel calmer when she checks out: the spa session lasts nearly six hours. Offer valid through May. 200 International Dr., 410-576-5800
