Where should you spend this Christmas?

That time of year is fast approaching! That’s right, Christmas is just around the corner and already shops are gearing up for the festive season. Wherever you look, reindeers and snowmen are looking right back at you.

Perhaps you’re thinking about spending this Christmas somewhere other than home. Great! We have some great suggestions for hotels and resorts that love to celebrate the holidays. Whether you’re looking for a classic getaway like New York or somewhere completely different – say, Dubai – we have got you covered!

So, prepare to deck the halls in style this year with our list of top places to spend Christmas.

The Plaza, New York

A classic choice. The Plaza is one of New York’s finest hotels, located at Fifth Avenue and Central Park South. Although it is splendid all year round, the hotel goes all out for Christmas. Huge Christmas trees bedecked in decorations feature in several locations, including the hotel atrium, which really emphasises the festive spirit.

On Christmas Day, lunch is served in the Palm Court, which is the signature restaurant at the Plaza. As you might expect from a five start hotel, the food is exquisite and the atmosphere is warm, friendly and celebratory.

If you are looking for the postcard-perfect Christmas, look no further than the Plaza.

Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Dubai

Okay, so maybe the winter wonderland theme is not for you. That’s fine! How does somewhere warm and relaxed sound? Well, we’ve got just the ticket. The Jumeriah Beach Hotel in Dubai is regal, expansive and utterly indulgent, with staff waiting on hand and foot to oblige your every whim.

At Christmastime, the hotel gathers to ensure every guest enjoys themselves. There are carol singers and of course a visit from Santa, which we’re sure the kids (and big kids) will love. For dinner, signature Mediterranean cuisine is served at the hotel’s Villa Beach restaurant – perfect for those who aren’t keen on roast turkey.

Dubai is the perfect choice for those who are looking for something different – but no less luxurious – this Christmas!

Blue Waters Resort & Spa, Antigua

Another one for those who would prefer to celebrate Christmas in the sun rather than the snow. Antigua is beautiful during the Christmas period, oozing a laidback atmosphere that will appeal to those looking for a low-key vacation.

During Christmas, the friendly and welcoming staff really go out of their way to ensure every guest and their family are enjoying their stay. There are Christmas activities, presents, a visit from Santa and lots more! A regal dinner is served in the Palm Restaurant which overlooks the ocean, making it a Christmas dinner you’re not likely to forget in a hurry.

Who can say that they want for a romantic moonlit stroll along the beach for their Christmas? Not many! Plus, there’s no place more energetic or picturesque than Blue Waters come New Year’s Eve, where a huge fireworks display marks the beginning of a new year.

    Nice selection, especially New York. I spent one Christmas in the Rockies of Canada in a log cabin, but nothing compares to being at home, wherever that is :-)
