Best places to go at Christmas

Are you looking for the best place to go at Christmas? At Sovereign Luxury Travel we have a number of destinations that are just perfect for your Christmas holidays. Enjoy a luxury break with all your loved ones, making memories to last a lifetime. Take a look at our top five places to spend Christmas below. Are you ready to go ho ho…? 


Tenerife is the largest island in the Canaries and is blessed with year-round sunshine so is perfect for your Christmas holidays. Home to golden sandy beaches, luxury hotels and a fantastic selection of bars and restaurants, it is the ideal place to spend Christmas with loved ones. In Tenerife, Christmas is a little different from the UK where children receive their gifts on the 6th of January and not 25th of December. Christmas is therefore usually a holiday that is spent at home with family eating delicious food and then going to church for Midnight Mass. As it is a year-round destination most bars and restaurants remain open for visitors to enjoy. 


The island of Lanzarote is an ideal Christmas holiday location with its lunar-like scenery and unique landscapes. Benefitting from warm temperatures and azure waters all year round, spending Christmas here will be magical. During the festive season it is common for people to recreate a nativity scene with figurines showing the birth of Jesus. If you decide to stay over New Year, then you can enjoy taking part in a tradition that dates back many years. On the night of the 31st of December at the stroke of midnight, you will have to eat the 12 grapes of luck, one for each month of the year as each bell sounds to welcome in the new year.  


Treat yourself to some well-deserved winter sun in Barbados. You’ll be living the luxury island lifestyle with white sand beaches and an incredibly lively culture. The towns offer some of the best Barbadian cuisine, cocktails, and views that will take your breath away. That along with the Caribbean music will have you spending your Christmas swaying in the sunshine. Here are some of the best places to stay for a Christmas holiday in Barbados.  


Situated just off the west coast of Africa, the stunning island of Fuerteventura awaits. As the second largest island of the Canary Islands, there is a lot of adventure ahead with over 150 beaches waiting for you to dive in. Over Christmas, Corralejo invites you to its annual Christmas market with plenty of traditional gifts and food to enjoy. Plus, if you want to witness a truly unique occurrence, the Geminids (meteor shower) reaches its peak in mid-December. Fuerteventura is the ideal island destination over Christmas for the whole family to enjoy.  


Get ready for the ultimate luxury island holiday this Christmas. The Maldives is a real gift with  crystal clear waters, white sand, and days spent doing water sports. It’s time to get out of the cold and into the sun with fun for the whole family. For those on a romantic getaway, the Maldives offers relaxation at its finest with spa treatments and secluded plunge pools waiting to invite you in.
