They say that a mother’s love is peace; that it is not acquired nor is it deserved. That’s why for this year’s Mother’s Day celebration, all moms deserve to be treated and pampered.

This year is the perfect time to shake things up and move away from the usual things you do to celebrate Mother’s Day. But that doesn’t mean that watching movies or having a family meal at home isn’t a special way to bond on this special day. However, if you are looking for something new to experience with your mom, why not spend Mother's Day in the beautiful island paradise of Boracay?

If you are interested in the thought of sand, sun, and a whole lot of fun for Mother’s Day, then read these reasons why you should have your Mother’s Day celebration in Boracay!

1. Get pampered in world-class hotels 

Boracay is known to host a wide variety of hotels — all to make you experience the luxe and lush feeling of a tropical paradise. Definitely a great way to celebrate Mother’s Day.

One such hotel is Alta Vista de Boracay, whose world-class amenities will definitely be the highlight of your pampering journey with your mom. Alta Vista de Boracay’s facilities include an infinity pool you can dip in. The pool is surrounded by lush greenery to really deliver that tropical island vibe for you and your mother. The best part is you can enjoy the water without even going to the beach!

If you prefer to stay dry, you and your mom can have a karaoke session at the hotel’s Karaoke Room. Singing the classics from dusk till dawn is definitely one of the most fun things you can do with your mom.

With the sun’s golden rays warmly touching your skin, sand between your toes, a couple of refreshments in hand, you’ll definitely have a solid time with your mom.

Nothing beats just lounging by the sandy shores seated under a big beach umbrella and soaking all the island’s sun. You can use this time to catch up with your mom, talk about anything and everything under the sun and just enjoy each other’s company. Boracay’s beaches are definitely lounge-friendly as there are fewer crowds. This means enjoying the world-famous white sands of Boracay as you celebrate Mother’s Day.

Let’s face it: your mom’s secretly hoping for some splurging. Boracay is definitely a hotspot for some serious shopping sprees!

The island is dotted with malls you can visit for your shopping spree because inside them are a wide variety of outlets. However, you need to expect that most of the items you will be buying are for the summer season such as swimwear and sundresses. But with summer just around the corner, shopping for summer outfits is a great way to celebrate Mother’s Day.

Boracay isn’t just famous for its white sand. It’s pristine and crystal clear waters are also worthy of recognition.

What better way to celebrate Mother’s Day than swimming in the turquoise waters of this tropical paradise with your mom? With the recent reopening of Boracay, however, new guidelines were put in place prohibiting most water activities such as parasailing. But that can’t stop anyone from doing fun things with their mom on Boracay! Have a photo shoot with your mom in the many IG-worthy spots in Boracay.

5. Have a feast in Boracay’s restaurants

For those staying at Alta Vista de Boracay, the L’Altura restaurant is the perfect place to enjoy quality ingredients and excellent cooking. Their Sriracha Chicken and Adobo with Yogurt are must-try! You and your mom can also lounge and relax in your room and order room service. Outside Alta Vista de Boracay are other restaurants you can try. If your mom likes to have great Italian food, consider having a feast down at Rima’s or at Aplaya’s. For seafood lovers, Mama’s Fish House and Hoy Panga Boracay are perfect choices for some delectable fish, crabs, and shrimp.

What’s great about Boracay’s restaurants is the fact that most, if not all of them, will be having Mother’s Day promos. Keep an eye out for those so that you can score some sweet deals!

While there have been a number of changes since Boracay’s reopening, you and your mom can still celebrate Mother’s Day in a fun way. If you are looking for something more engaging and active to do with your mom, consider playing a game of beach volleyball with her and some of your other family members. You can also ask the locals and even strangers to join in on the fun so that you and your mom bond while making new friends. You can also try renting a Segway so that you and your mom can cruise around the island in a fun and memorable fashion.

7. Watch the majestic sunset

Sunsets are warm, majestic, and truly a sight to behold. Whether it’s by the beach, from your room at Alta Vista de Boracay or from a restaurant, watching the sunset with your mother is a special way to celebrate Mother’s Day.

You can take this time to talk with your mom and further strengthen your relationship. Reminisce on the good times and the bad that you’ve had together. You can even tell her the words you wouldn’t normally say to her on a regular day. If you run out of things to say to each other, then just listen to the sounds of the ocean and enjoy each other’s company. Whichever way you want to view the sunset, sharing it with your mom will undoubtedly make this year’s Mother’s Day special.

8. Go island hopping

Your Mother’s Day celebration in Boracay would not be complete without some island hopping, so consider touring different islands with your mom this year. Crocodile Island, Piknikan Island, and Crystal Island: going from one island to another will give you and your mom different sights to enjoy.

This activity is perfect to capture snapshots with your mom so that you can document how you spent Mother's Day in the world-famous beaches of Boracay. This is definitely a welcome change from the usual dinners in the metro every Mother’s Day. You can ask assistance from Alta Vista de Boracay’s personnel regarding island hopping schedules for a hassle-free arrangement.

Alta Vista de Boracay can definitely be the perfect location for a memorable Mother’s Day celebration. And at the end of the day, what counts is the time you have spent lovingly with your mom.
