Dear mothers everywhere: take a break. It's high time you took a step back, breathed deeply, and unwind. Spend some time to just go wandering and unwind while enjoying the finest that Riyadh has to offer.
The city is brimming with restaurants that provide the finest menus loaded with the tastiest food; start your day by heading out to brunch with your girls. Head on to Tameesa, a local hut popular for serving substantial breakfast classics like the shakshuka (egg scramble), foul (beans), and kebdah (liver), followed by some traditional Karak tea, for some timeless comfort food. Visit Ohayou or Opla if you're looking for a place that serves traditional brunch fare like french toast, smoothies, and coffee. Flour and Firewood, on the other hand, is a great choice for individuals seeking their artisanal dose.
Get a revitalizing spa treatment in the afternoon at Al Faisaliah Spa by ESPA. If you're in the mood for some pampering, go to Shi Nail Spa or Four Nail Spa for a manicure. For a rigorous cleansing and a royal hammam experience, go to the Hot Stone Spa. For a staycation where you can really indulge in pampering and let your hair down, head to the all-female Luthan hotel and spa complex.
If you're looking for a more action-packed afternoon, try a game of bowling at Yalla or the Universal Bowling Center or at Yalla! Bowling in Riyadh Park. Furthermore, if you're looking for an adrenaline rush, go to Magic Planet's karting track, which is situated beyond the bowling alley. Finally, you can't go wrong at DOOS Karting or the Dirab Motor Park if you're searching for a more exclusive experience.
Nothing soothes the soul like a cup of tea in the afternoon. There are several high tea locations in the city where you may unwind and catch up with friends over a delicious steaming cup of tea, such Four Seasons, Tea Club, or The Hidden Garden.
Pack a picnic and proceed to the cities' dams and lakes in the afternoon if you're hoping to catch a quiet sunset. Excellent locations to take in the surrounding nature are the Salbukh water reservoir and Namar lake.
This time of year is a great time to take advantage of the city's nightlife, which includes a variety of fine eating and outdoor options. It's fun to check out energetic, vibrant cafes like Farzi and Urth. Visit Nobu, Suhail, Hualan, and Mamo for a lavish five-star night out and sample some of Riyadh's culinary highlights.
Feel no remorse. It's important to look after yourself because a contented, revitalized you will enable you to be the greatest possible mother, wife, daughter, and woman.
