Savvy Travellers Book Early for Christmas
Posted on 21st May 2015
Thinking of avoiding the drizzle and getting away this Christmas? The festive season might be miles off our radars at the moment, as we plan our summer escapes, but it really does pay to book early.
Flights are released around 11 months before departure so savvy travellers are already reserving their seats before prices climb. Hotel availability tends to start getting tricky by the end of the summer so to secure your dream Christmas holiday we recommend booking sooner rather than later. Read on for our top 5 picks this Christmas.
Surrounded by beautiful Lapland scenery, Hotel Kakslauttanen is the perfect winter retreat and base for a fun packed winter activity holiday and a magical visit to see Santa Claus and his elves in the nearby Santa’s Resort. Children and adults alike will love the husky safaris, reindeer pulled sledge trips, cross country skiing or simply playing in the snow.
Nonsuch Bay is the perfect retreat for families looking for some active time as well as relaxing time in a setting that reflects the true beauty of the Caribbean. This beautiful 40-acre property is surrounded by water from three sides in a secluded pocket in the South-East corner of the Island. The Bay is calm and protected making it a perfect environment for learning how to sail or other small boat activities.
Introducing itself as “Contemporary luxury in a beach-front all suite resort”, The Landings overlooks an impressive expanse of soft white sand and is one of the only luxury properties in St Lucia where guests can step directly onto the beach. The Landings is nestled in Rodney Bay, just a stone’s throw from the historic Pigeon Island National Park and a few minutes from Rodney Bay Village with its restaurants and attractions. With a focus on families, including a year-round kids club and special attention to detail to ensure little ones are catered for, there is the opportunity to do as little or as much as you like.
The Ritz-Carlton, Abama is a deluxe retreat positioned high on a cliff top, commanding spectacular views of the Atlantic ocean and La Gomera Island. The delightful staff treat each client as an individual by tailoring their services to your needs and truly setting a stage on which you and your family are the star. There is a golden sandy beach around the cove and a new train to help guests get the most from the resort.
New in 2014, the Westin Turtle Bay opens its doors in a protected marine park on one of the most scenic spots on the island. It faces the beautiful bay that gives the resort its name, home to colourful coral reefs and with lush sugar cane fields behind. Children will love the superb facilities of the Westin Kids Club, set amongst exotic gardens. The Discovery Room is the centre of the action, offering supervised entertainment for 4-12 year olds.« Back to blog home
