Spice Island Hammock

Festive fun in the sun


Longing for some sunshine at this time of year? Then why not swap the scarf for a sarong and head to the Caribbean for a twist on the classic wintery Christmas. Enjoy views from oceanfront restaurants for your festive dinner in the Caribbean sun. And, the festivities won’t stop there as New Year’s Eve will be just around the corner as your luxury holiday ends on a high with music and dancing well into the night. Here we’ve compiled a few of the top resorts in the Caribbean with a little help from our partner Caribtours

For a twist on the classic Christmas day

Spice Island, Grenada

Grenada is known as the Spice of the Caribbean with white sandy beaches, coral reefs and unspoilt landscapes. It’s a perfect destination for some last-minute winter sun and for a Christmas like no other.
At the family owned and run Spice Island, guests are treated like dear friends and the Christmas period heightens the feeling of warmth and goodwill. You’ll feel like you’re home from home but with the backdrop of an idyllic paradise.
Christmas at Spice Island is a grand affair, with entertainment including live musicians and performers, from steel pan bands to soulful choirs. Be greeted on Christmas morning with a glass of bubbly and magnificent breakfast. Then enjoy a Caribbean buffet and join the owners, Sir Royston and Lady Hopkin, for cocktails in the courtyard. Followed by a traditional Christmas meal in the evening.

Sporty retreat

Curtain Bluff, Antigua

Antigua is a great destination to go snorkelling, relax on fully-serviced beaches or unwind at the spa – and this is exactly what you can expect at Curtain Bluff. The resort also boasts yoga classes and tennis courts for you to practice your serve ahead of Wimbledon! And, if you’re planning some winter sun ahead of the Christmas period, then in November you can join British tennis star Annabel Croft for tennis training and drills, yoga, Pilates and, of course, all the facilities of one of the most exclusive all inclusives in the Caribbean.

Family adventure

Saint Peter’s Bay Resort & Port Ferdinand Marina, Barbados

Set along a sun-kissed stretch of beach with glamorous beachfront villas each adorned with terraces and spa pools, this is an ideal resort for families seeking sun this winter. Children will love the lagoon-style swimming pool, complimentary watersports and fun-filled children’s zone for ages five and up. The palatial villa-style living offers families the benefit of all the comforts and luxuries you’d expect from a first-rate hotel including a choice of three restaurants and Port Ferdinand’s tranquil spa.

For health and wellbeing

Sugar Beach, Saint Lucia

If you’re looking for spa indulgence and to totally unwind this festive season, then look no further than the tranquil resort of Sugar Beach in Saint Lucia.  In a thatched-roof treehouse high up on stilts you can tune into the natural brook that flows between the treehouses, and the tuneful tropical birds as you relax into a bamboo massage, hot rock therapy or chocolate scrub. Post treatment, take a dip in a waterfall-fed natural plunge pool.

Zemi Beach House Hotel & Spa, Anguilla

For ultimate relaxation this Christmas then the Zemi Beach House & Spa could tick all the boxes. The building, transported from Thailand, acts as the soothing setting for calm-inducing and healing rituals and treatments. Guests are encouraged to visit for a treatment and linger for the whole day in order to experience the purifying Taino bathing ritual, influenced by the Caribbean’s ancient Taino people. Herbs and ointments are applied to the body before guests relax in the sun on the Bohique Mud Deck, dry off and then wash everything away.
If you’re seeking the sun’s rays these winter months, then we’ve got some truly great exclusive offers available. If anything here takes your fancy then get in touch. Here’s some more ideas in the Caribtours Luxury Travel Magazine to give you food for thought if you’re thinking of that special getaway this Christmas.
