Is she your best friend, biggest fan, psychologist, stockholder, cook, maid, or prison warden? I’ll bet she’s some combination of the above… and whether she microwaves frozen burritos or designs four course meals, continually warns you that your boyfriend is a closet flamer or shamelessly comes on to him, and calls once a year or clumsily texts multiple times a day, it all boils down to a simple fact: she’s your mom. And she loves you. Which is not easy to do. So appreciate one of the few people in the world who would do anything to make your life a little better, and take care of her for a change.
Maui’s Hotel Zone is a pampering paradise…Make reservations at the Hyatt Regency Maui Swan Court for a champagne brunch ($29-$39), then treat her to an organic body treatment at Spa Moana for $99. Or take her to Kaanapali Beach Hotel for a buffet brunch, champage, music and hula dancing – including an appearance by Melveen Leed – for $47, half price for children.
Or, if you aren’t morning people, take her out that evening to Leilani’s on the beach, where mom eats free with the purchase of two entrees. Also, on the eve of Mother’s Day, Melveen Leed of Moloka’i will perform for free at the Tiki Courtyard at Kaanapali Beach hotel from 6-9pm in honor of island mothers. Most importantly, tell your mom what I plan on telling mine – “Happy Mothers Day Mom, I Love You.” (And don’t worry, you can go right back to being ungrateful and bitter on the tenth.)
