Ring the bells, bring on the tiara and take Mom to the Don CeSar any day!
Whether you stop in just for Bloody Mary’s or hand-crafted Pisco Sours in the updated Rowe Bar. You could also roll out the red carpet and dine world-class at the Maritana Grille or the Sea Porch, or pamper her at the Spa Oceana.
Book Mom for a day of pampering at the Spa Oceana, a heavenly Gulf-view haven that will help her embrace her bliss. The Beach Glow Body Treatment, Healing Sea Cocoon, Rescue Me Toning treatment and Sea of Life Facial features use of the finest products even Mother Nature and King Neptune would approve. Add a glow with a floral blossom manicures, ocean mist pedicure, even make-up and hair style refresh. When you’re done with brunch, take a minute to see the magical sparkle breathed into the pink lady by General Manager Steve Cummings and team in the gardens and public spaces. Elegant modern glass sea-buoy like bubble chandeliers and glass sculptures adorn the lobby and interior walkways. Clean, crisp colors, foliage and attentive staff add to the revived charm.
The Loews gets an A+ for environmental-friendly sea turtle lighting and other sea-friendly programs, as well as eco-educational tours/signage (Sea Life Education Stations about beach birds, manatees, stingrays & oyster domes) for children of all ages. The children’s program incorporates cooking and art classes as well as star-gazing programs. Pets get their day in the sun, from the Spa to a petwalk special area.
