Perfectly located for enjoying the best of the city, there’s tonnes on your doorstep when you’re not soaking up those famous Dubai rays by the pool or on the beach. The resort is in easy reach of the Wild Wadi and Aquaventure waterparks; which the kids will love. Or if you can’t bear the idea of a Christmas without a little bit of the white stuff then Ski Dubai is just seven miles away; with its skiing, snowboarding and tobogganing, and even a penguin colony! We recommend starting the big day itself with mimosas and a slap-up breakfast with a view in your suite. Christmas bliss…

Alternatively, slip into your dinner jacket or finest cocktail dress and head to the black-tie gala dinner, enjoying exquisite cuisine and incredible wine, alongside great company of course! After dinner, the celebrations really begin… an open bar, wonderful orchestra and more great entertainment will make this New Year’s Eve one to remember!
You could save 15% on accommodation at the exceptional Amilla Fushi at the end of the year, should the blues of the Indian Ocean be calling you.
As one would expect from the idyllic resort, they have plenty on the agenda to add some sparkle to your Christmas or New Year’s Eve luxury holiday.

Finally, we couldn’t put together Christmas holiday inspiration without mentioning the grande dame of Caribbean resorts, where household names flock each year to celebrate the festive season on Barbados’s sun-drenched west coast.
We’re delighted to tell you we still have limited availability at Sandy Lane for Christmas 2018, so it’s not too late to book should the iconic hotel tempt you. As you would well expect, the legendary resort goes all out of Christmas, with entertainment from both local and international artists, daily themed buffets and a memorable sandcastle building competition for families judged by Mr Claus himself (whom usually makes a grand entrance on a jet ski or the like!).
Stay on for New Year’s Eve and you’ll be treated to a gala of epic proportions and a celebration with fireworks on the beach. The next day you’ll be dazzled by the dancers and entertainers of a mini-Barbados festival to start the new year in style.
