The Sanctuary at Paradise Mountain in Scottsdale offers Mom a little peace and quiet.

The Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain in Arizona offers Mom a little peace and quiet.

Mother’s Day is coming up on May 12. While mom has certainly loved the cards and gifts you’ve given her in the past, this year you could thank her for her love and support by taking her on vacation. With the help of Orbitz you can plan a getaway that will have your mother asking, “Are we there yet?”

If she’s the kind of gal who loves a peaceful retreat, the Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain in Paradise Valley, Arizona is a great place to go. After swimming in the infinity pool or taking advantage of the walking paths, you and your mother can retire to your own private, mountainside casita. In addition to offering striking views of Camelback Mountain and Paradise Valley, the entire resort is a hummingbird sanctuary. Nearby Scottsdale and its numerous art galleries are only a short drive away if you decide you’re in the mood to see some of the local manmade beauty.

If your mom enjoys being pampered, the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort and Spa in Waikoloa, Hawaii might be the perfect place to spoil her. The resort’s Mandara Spa is set along the tranquil Kohala Coast and offers treatments inspired by the natural traditions of Balinese and Hawaiian culture. While they offer a wide variety of facial and body treatments, they specialize in massage. If you really want to treat your mother like a queen, sign her up for the Lomi Lomi massage, which is a type of traditional massage once given to Hawaiian royalty.

Perhaps your mom prefers a more active vacation. In that case, check out, where you can find your next adventure by destination or activity. Maybe you’d like to go hiking in Hawaii, or bike riding in British Columbia. Whatever you enjoy, will connect you with local tour operators offering once-in-a-lifetime excursions. Once you’ve decided on your adventurous destination, you can find the best flight deals on Orbitz.
