As the new year symbolizes starting over, unwinding, and taking on new challenges, January is when the social elite takes a break from the exhausting routine hustles and bustles and relaxes. And with most countries reopening and easing Covid-19 travel restrictions, there is no better way to let up than to jet out and vacation at some of the most exotic, exclusive, and evocative destinations.
As a jetsetter, you want to holiday in the most exquisite, breathtaking, and photo-worthy locations. So if a trip around the world is in your fixture this year, the following places are well worth paying a visit:
During the winter, jet setters and vacationers come to the sun on the white sands of the luxury beaches of Miami to enjoy a quaint charm, scenic beauty, and a crisp breeze. Miami is home to gorgeous beaches like Lummus Park, Bal Harbor beach, and Crandon Park. You also can enjoy cruising, water sports, and jet skiing on the shoreline.
You won’t have trouble finding a luxurious room with lush amenities in Miami. Hotels like Four Seasons, Mandarin Oriental, Faena, and SLS Brickell have well-appointed luxury suites, impeccable service, and modern elegance that will make you feel like royalty.
Miami is only edged out by a few other places as far as nightlife goes. After soaking up some sun on the beaches during the day, you can enjoy splashy late-night cocktails and sway to thumping tunes from the world’s biggest DJs in nightclubs such as LIV Miami, Basement, Story, and Floyd.
If you love golf and would like the best of what the game offers, visit any of the many award-winning golf courses such as the Normandy Shores golf club, Miami Beach golf club, The Biltmore golf club, Miami Shores country club, and more.
Topographically, the Maldives is stunning with a relaxing atmosphere, monsoon winds, and pearly sun-soaked beaches looking out on crystal-clear blue water of the Indian Ocean.
The beaches on the more-than-a-thousand splendid islands are loved for what they lack, crowds and touts. This winter, you can revel in the quaint charm, breathtaking scenic beauty, and a crisp breeze on the clean beaches. Beaches worth checking out include Reethi beach, Lily beach, Bikini beach, and Hulhumale beach. Also, look out for luxurious hotels like the Dhigali, Conrad, Kanuhura, and Kandima.
The beaches barely taste what the Maldives offer. In the Baa and Ari coral atolls, and lagoons, you could also watch marine life like sea turtles and manta rays or swim alongside majestic and enormous whale sharks and smaller reef sharks. Moreover, water sports like kayaking, jet-skiing, canoeing, snorkeling, and rollerblading are heritage sites, and cherished Maldivian culture and cuisines also add more charm. A little, if any, nightlife exists here, making it perfect for family fun this winter.
Ibiza is the ultimate nightlife destination. And although the Spanish island may not be fully-fledged after the pandemic, many clubs have reopened. The defining elements of the island are a wealth of iconic clubs and bars like the Liquido Cocktail bar, Ushuaia beach hotel, Oceanbeat Ibiza, and Vincent’s Bar.
The best luxury hotels for the affluent who want to soak up the winter sun include One Ibiza Suites, Mirador de Valt, Casa Maca, and Hotel la Torre.
The party getaway island isn’t all about the crazy nightlife. Should the cold days of January cause you to wish for sunnier days, the beaches in Ibiza will let you sunbathe, swim and soak. So, you party all day on the beach and party all night at nightclubs. Ibiza offers a variety of luxury beaches, including the Cala Tarida beach, Playa d’en Bossa, Cala Jondal, Ses Salines, and Es Cavallet.
But once you visit all the above, don’t pack up and head home just yet. Instead, take time to visit the Dalt Vila Unesco site, Ibiza Cathedral, and San Antonio and experience unique delicacies from the island.
