Your Mom deserves a weekend of pampering at The Abbey Resort

#MothersDay #AvaniSpa #LakeGeneva #Wisconsin #Travel

Mother’s day is a little less than a month away on May 10, 2015, and I am sure some of you haven’t figured out what to do to show that special lady in your life just how much you appreciate her.  Well I have a suggestion, why not treat her to a weekend of pampering at The Abbey Resort?  The Abbey Resort and Avani Spa on Lake Geneva makes it easy for sons and daughters to treat their mom like the queen she is with brunch, activities, and spa specials offered throughout the weekend to resort guests and visitors alike.

A full Mother’s Day brunch spread including complimentary sparkling wine and mimosas is available at 240° West from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Sunday, May 10.  Brunch and resort guests are invited to enjoy time together as a family with games, crafts, and kid-friendly activities such as face painting, lawn games, giant bubble wands, and a petting zoo, available throughout the resort from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.

 Take a Getaway to the Abbey Resort #LakeGeneva #Wisconsin #AvaniSpa

In desperate need of a getaway, the Marine and I decided to take a quick trip just to unwind and get away.  With so much going on for both of us we just needed that moment to breathe, not to mention it was something we had been talking about for a while now.  Neither of us had ever been to Lake Geneva and was anxious to see what it had to offer, so I contacted The Abbey Resort to see what options were available and find out more about the resort.  Now of all the resorts in the Lake Geneva area, I personally wanted to stay at The Abbey Resort because it came highly recommended by several of my friends.  I heard nothing but phenomenal things about the resort and it’s amenities…needless to say The Abbey Resort definitely lived up to the praises my friends and family gave them.  From our arrival to our departure, we knew we had made an excellent decision by choosing The Abbey Resort for our first Lake Geneva Getaway!

The Abbey Resort: Having a Lake Geneva Getaway #DivaTravels #AvaniSpa 

So you may or may not have noticed that I have added a new section to the blog DivaTravels.  As this blog grows and truthfully as I get older, I want to start crossing off the places I would like to visit from my bucket list.  Yes, I have a travel bucket list…DO NOT JUDGE ME lol.  So my first destination on said list is The Abbey Resort in Lake Geneva Wisconsin.  While The Abbey Resort is only about 2 hours from my home (and so is Lake Geneva) I have only seen pictures of it and I am anxious to see what the property looks like in person.

While researching where to go in Lake Geneva for our little getaway this weekend, I kept getting feedback from my friends and family to check out The Abbey Resort, which is why I chose them for this excursion.  So stay tuned as I will be posting a review of The Abbey Resort after my stay.  In the meantime be sure to check them out via their social media:
