Hit the road for a girls’ trip and celebrate the powerful bond between mother and daughter.
Your next girls’ trip
Palazzo Versace Gold Coast
The first designer-branded hotel in the world, Palazzo Versace Gold Coast in Australia draws serious VIPs — among them Queen Bey and her mom, Tina Knowles. For a high-rollin’ girls’ trip, book the Fashionista High Tea ceremony, an experience fit for Alice herself, where trays come stacked high with intricately decorated desserts and gourmet loose-leaf tea blends like jasmine and peppermint. And if you want to live like Mrs. Carter for the day, check in with the hotel’s VIP Guests Relations Manager, who can assist with add-ons like poolside Champagne cabana retreats and gourmet picnics.
Downtown Historic Bed and Breakfast
If you have a young daughter who loves American Girl Dolls, then chances are you’ve probably heard that the American Girl Doll of the Year is Saige Copeland, a spirited little tyke with an affinity for the arts. You can experience Albuquerque like Saige would, with a mother-daughter trip to New Mexico and the Downtown Historic Bed and Breakfast. The Girls’ Night Out Package for Two includes your stay, afternoon tea, a fun chick flick, shopping and more. Be sure to make time to explore the town’s eclectic food, music and art scenes!
Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain
One of Scottsdale, Arizona’s most exclusive resorts, Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain’s Ladies First Package is available June 1 – Aug. 31 and includes an overnight in a luxurious mountain casita, 60-minute spa treatment for both mom and daughter, room tax and spa gratuity. The Asian-inspired spa houses a Zen meditation garden, reflecting pond and watsu pool. Besides pampering services, you’ll also have access to a state-of-the-art fitness center that hosts regular Pilates, meditation and yoga classes. And don’t miss dinner at Elements, run by Food Network-featured Chef Beau MacMillan.
Alisal Guest Ranch and Resort
Moms and daughters can reconnect with the adventurous three-night, four-day Cowgirl Bootcamp at Alisal Guest Ranch and Resort in Solvang, California. Strengthen bonds and build memories, all while under the friendly instruction of Alisal’s women wranglers. You’ll hit the trails daily to the Old Adobe and learn the fundamentals of barrel racing, roping and more. The girls’ trip special includes accommodations, cowgirl amenity basket, evening receptions, and breakfast and dinner each day (wine included!). When you’re not ropin’ and ridin’, you can take a turn with activities like hat shaping, archery and line dancing.
Park Hyatt Beaver Creek
Park Hyatt Beaver Creek is a 190-room slopeside resort in Colorado with a chateau-style design and 30,000-square-foot Allegria spa. Complete with 23 treatment rooms and a full-service fitness center, the spa incorporates handcrafted massage oils, scrubs and lotions made with indigenous ingredients like lavender and honey. For mother-daughter vacations, choose from a variety of spa packages. The Prima Donna is ideal for girls age 8 to 12 and includes bejeweled nail art, while the Uptown Girl for 12- to 16-year-olds features a 25-minute Cranberry Orange Scrub and Swedish massage, as well as a 30-minute Teen Facial and more.
