You knew this day was coming: Your kiddo’s afternoon nap is a thing of the past. You just didn’t realize how long this day would feel — all thirteen hours and 22 minutes of it.
For an antidote to endless afternoons, try the Pampered Parents program at Montage Beverly Hills hotel. Local moms (or dads) book any 60-minute treatment at the luxurious Spa Montage, and their minis get two complimentary hours of care at Paintbox, an in-house day camp for kids ages 5 to 12. More than just a babysitting service, Paintbox offers crafts, meals, and themed behind-the-scenes romps through the grounds (we love Top Chef Tuesday when kid meets kitchen).
Meanwhile, you choose from a menu of services (facials, massages, and detox therapies), unwind in the mineral pool, and retire to the Andalusia-inspired ladies’ lounge for a whirlpool dip, herbal steam, and Swiss shower.
If there’s anything more rejuvenating than nap time, this is it.
