Mother’s Day is just round the corner and although I have to admit that this occasion by itself is quite commercialised, our mums definitely ought to have a well-deserved break on their special day.
If you have ultra-deep pockets, you may want to consider 3 atas [luxurious] ways to pampering your mum at Sofitel So Singapore.
The First Atas Way, A Luxury Hotel Staycation at Sofitel So Singapore
Book your mum a luxury hotel staycation at Sofitel So Singapore, Singapore’s newest luxury designer hotel that is housed within an iconic heritage building built in 1927 on Robinson Road. Every room at Sofitel So Singapore invites guests to dream with high ceilings and bespoke light boxes featuring images of palatial glass domes inspired by the traditional architecture of Europe and modern constructions in Singapore.
For a special rate of SGD$427++, your mum can indulge in a sumptuous breakfast served in the luxurious room, a bottle of Champagne on ice to be savoured any time during the stay, and a thoughtful gift of chocolate or flowers offered upon arrival. What’s more; your mum can also enjoy a late check-out at 4:00pm and the facilities that Sofitel So Singapore has to offer.
The Second Atas Way, A 5-Course Spa & Massage Indulgence at So SPA
Located at So SPA at The Singapore Resort & Spa Sentosa, treat your mum to a soothing day of pampering with the Oh-So Spoiled 5-course Spa indulgence which includes a 15-minute foot ritual, a 45-minute revitalising Neem Body Polish, a 60-minute So Relaxing Massage or a luxurious Neem Healing Facial, a healthy juice, and a full day of relaxation with access to the spa gardens, float pool, galaxy steam baths and mud pools!
At a special price of SGD$255++, So SPA will tempt your mum to come back for more with a complimentary SGD$50 return voucher for her next retreat.

The Third Atas Way, A 4-Course French Epicurean Dining Experience at Xperience Restaurant & Bar
Crafted by the young but talented Resident Culinary Designer Chef Anne-Cécile Degenne, the 4-course Mother’s Day Menu at Xperience Restaurant & Bar at Sofitel So Singapore is a thoughtful French epicurean dining experience that mothers will surely love.
The tantalising starter made from Sri Lankan crabs, fresh pomelo pulp, and garnished with luxurious French caviar is served with coriander salad that gives it an earthy but refreshing twist.
The second starter, Seared Foie Gras and Truffle Emulsion with Mushroom Ravioli, is inspired by Chef AnneCécile’s beloved home town, the port city of Bordeaux in South-Western France. The buttery foie gras, combined with freshly imported white mushrooms and porcini wrapped in parcels of homemade dough will warm both palates and hearts.
Following the starters is the menu’s piece de resistance; the main course of Grilled Scallop and Lobster, Fennel, Orange and Basil. Meaty Hokkaido scallops grilled to light-brown perfection are paired with fresh, springy Boston lobster and cooked with fennel, rosemary, orange juice, and olive oil. This ensemble creates a juxtaposition of earthy, natural, yet delicate flavours that are soothing and gentle.
A satisfying meal can only conclude with an equally satisfying dessert. Here, Chef Anne-Cécile gives the diners a pleasant surprise; a deconstructed Black Forest. This re-imagining of a well-loved classic dessert offers a different experience with each bite. The taste of rich, dark orbs of Varlhona chocolate mousse is balanced with either sour cherry jelly or the Griotte cherries nestled in the mousse.
Each dish from the menu is carefully paired with a selection of wines to enhance the dining experience. Your mum will also receive a rose and one Shiseido beauty kit worth SGD$47, featuring choice picks from their Vital-Perfection White range, Makeup Lacquer Rouge and the highly-raved Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate. Complimentary valet parking is also available should you decide to drive her there.
The Delicate Mother’s Day Quartet Dinner Menu from Xperience Restaurant & Bar is priced at SGD$128++ per person, or SGD$168++ per person with wine pairing.
Below are the available dates and timings for the Delicate Mother’s Day Quartet Dinner Menu:
9 May 2015: 6.30pm – 10.00pm | 10 May 2015: 12.00pm – 3.00pm
With 3 atas ways to pamper your mum on Mother’s Day, you can even consider having a fourth atas way to pamper your mum by combining all the 3; but of course, this won’t come cheap and will probably cost you at least a thousand dollars for all 3.
If you are on a budget but would love to pamper your mum luxuriously, I would personally suggest treating your mum to a meal or a spa and massage package as the prices are pretty reasonable.
