A mom’s night away at Hyatt Regency Calgary
It’s rare that moms think about putting themselves first. Here on Move Play Mom, I often stress the importance of taking time to make time for yourself. Reminding you to make sure you are carving out time for little things like a coffee alone, a workout or booking a massage. Today I want you to imagine if you got to do all three of these and more!
I strongly believe in connecting with yourself and your friends, finding time outside of your day-to-day routine and enjoying a much-needed getaway together.
Sometimes getting away for a few days or hopping on a plane isn’t realistic or in the finances. But you know what is? A night away with your bestie in your own local city! Seems crazy, I know, but it’s so much fun! Splitting the cost of a room at an awesome hotel just twenty minutes from home can shockingly be just what the doctor ordered!
Tristan, my business partner, and I were so excited to check out the Hyatt Regency hotel in downtown Calgary for a fabulous wellness getaway for a night! The morning of our big evening away I was still able to help pack kids’ lunches, get their teeth brushed, and get the boys to school. That's the nice thing about a getaway just down the road.
After squeezing in a morning of work, Tristan picked me up at three in the afternoon and off we went for a much-needed besties, moms, business owners and girls’ night away.
With easy parking on site, we rolled right into the Hyatt and headed up to the check-in area. We happen to be staying there right before the holidays and the hotel is beautifully decorated. We got our key cards and headed up to change for our spa appointment at four. The rooms didn’t disappoint! We had a room with a view, overlooking downtown Calgary.
We quickly changed and headed down to the stunning Stillwater Spa on the second floor. We were invited to spend some time at the whirlpool, in the steam room and then had a much needed, incredible, therapeutic massage. This was the perfect way to kick off our girls' night away.
After our fabulous time at the spa, we headed back up to our rooms to shower and change and then had a wonderful dinner and delicious cocktails at Thomsons Kitchen & Bar which is located on-site at Hyatt Regency Calgary.
I think my favorite part of this entire getaway was being able to have the most amazing sleep in the most comfortable bed with no interruptions from a snoring husband or a child who needed me. I love them, but they do say…sometimes distance makes the heart grow fonder.
After a quick run at the gym, I showered (amazing bathroom!) and Tristan and I had a business meeting over a lovely breakfast in the hotel’s private Regency Club lounge. We checked out at noon and left feeling relaxed and rejuvenated!
Right now Hyatt Regency Calgary is offering a Wellness Retreat Package, a perfect getaway with a friend or partner. This package is similar to my night away. An overnight stay in a Regency Club Room, a bottle of sparkling wine as a welcome gift, a massage for both guests, a credit to Thomsons Kitchen & Bar, and more!
I can't stress enough how important it is for us to reconnect with ourselves especially as moms. Sometimes we just need space. That room we create allows us to breathe and reconnect with our heart. It’s so vital to a healthy mind and soul.
Special thanks to Hyatt Regency Calgary for hosting us and providing us with such exceptional service. I can’t wait to return!
