With the festive season well and truly over and detoxes in full swing, what better way to beat the January blues than with a luxury holiday? January is a fantastic time to travel, seeing huge slashes in flight and accommodation prices and superb deals to be found worldwide. Europe’s ski season is in full swing, while further afield, the tropics are enjoying their glorious long sunny, dry months. So, whether it’s a cosy winter getaway you seek, or some much-needed winter sun, our experts are here to advise and inspire you with their recommendations for where to holiday in January.


Luxury Colombia Holidays

Have an all-in-one action-packed holiday during Colombia’s peak season. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the walled port city of Cartagena is definitely worth a look for its historic, colourful buildings and pretty squares with buzzing bars and restaurants, while the Caribbean islands nearby offer some extraordinary diving opportunities. Visit the Coffee Triangle (Zona Cafetera) to sample some of the world’s best coffee in one of the gorgeous haciendas that sit in the lush tropical landscapes.


Luxury Sweden Holidays

Following the Christmas season, Sweden’s crowds largely disappear, making it the perfect time to for a snowy getaway. This is THE place for a wow-factor family adventure to keep your spirits up after the hum of Christmas. Go dog-sledding with the children or visit the unique ICEHOTEL - with suites carved entirely of ice, it is the first of its kind.


Luxury Antigua Holidays

Antigua is undoubtedly one of our favourite Caribbean islands, with its 365 beaches meaning you could visit a different one every day of the year if you wanted to. That said, we suggest sticking to the driest months of the year when the beaches are at their very best. Plus, what better way to start the year than with a week or so in the sun on a luxury beach holiday, leaving you feeling relaxed and refreshed ready for the year ahead.


Luxury Thailand Holidays

A luxury wellness holiday to Thailand might be just the ticket for a healthy start to the New Year. Thanks to its location in the tropics, most of Thailand experiences perfect weather at this time of year: its deep in the midst of its long, dry season and gloriously sunny for days on end. Luxury retreats such as Kata Rocks in Phuket have excellent wellness programmes, where you can detox and de-stress amidst the azure waters, white-sand beaches and swaying palms.

New Zealand

Luxury New Zealand Holidays

A world away, down in the Southern Hemisphere, summer is in full swing. January is New Zealand’s warmest month and a perfect time of year for exploring its world-class great outdoors. Long, bright days make it fantastic for hiking and mountain biking holidays in the South Island or adventure activities in adrenaline-fuelled Queenstown, while coastal hotspots such as the Bay of Islands are perfect for catching the sun and enjoying coastal walks on gorgeous beaches. Post-Christmas festivities continue into the New Year and you’ll encounter plenty of festivals, concerts and events up and down the country for all the family to enjoy.
