As 14 May approaches, it’s time to show appreciation for mums – the women gracefully going above and beyond, year-round, to make sure everyone’s needs are met. Whether you’re her co-parent, partner in life or offspring, put a big smile on her face with lavish dining and relaxing spa treatments designed by Sheraton Grand Macao and The St. Regis Macao for the occasion.
The St. Regis Macao
Rosé Wine Indulgence at The Manor
The Connoisseur’s Table at The Manor, a regular series of gourmet wine and food pairings, takes on a mum-friendly theme, and blush-coloured hues, for the big day. Distinctive rosé wines from Atlantic Portugal, sunny Australia and and dreamy Provence in France (the world’s leading rosé wine region) have been paired with a six-course menu curated by Chef Michele Dell’Aquila in a pink lunch to wow the senses.
Among other delectables, Dell’Aquila’s menu features Gillardeau oyster with Royal caviar, Alaskan black cod with dashi broth and crab and more, culminating in a to-live-for cheese selection by Les Frères Marchand. The full menu can be seen here.
When: 13-14 May, lunch

Jazzy Tea at The St. Regis Bar
Picture this: An afternoon tea steeped in the St. Regis tradition at the uber classy The St. Regis Bar to the sound of a soulful live jazz performance – all coming together to create a memorable experience that feels intimate and indulgent. In case mum is not one to pass up on a glass of bubbly champagne, then the champagne tea set is in order – here’s to her!
Once they’ve had their fill of sweet and savoury nibbles, mums can linger at the bar and get their creativity flowing with a jewellery-making workshop, fashioning a sparkling keepsake to wear and treasure.
