1. Hawaii, North America
Notoriously well known for its luxurious scenery, natural beauty, beaches of gold, red and black and an aura of unique character, Hawaii has always been regarded as one of the best luxury holiday destinations. Perfect for honeymooners, escaping to the sands for a bit of peace and quiet, or exploring the isle’s surf – Hawaii ticks all the boxes for a luxury travel destination this year.
Top 3 Things To Do:
• Hike through Haleakala National Park
• See the striking Kauai landscape by helicopter
• Jump aboard a catamaran to the island of Molokini

What’s the best time to go to Hawaii?

For luxury beach holidays to Hawaii, the best time to soak up some rays would be April to November. However, for those who’d prefer weather on the cooler side, December to April still boasts temperatures in the mid-twenties – perfect for relaxed luxury holidays without the blistering heat.

2. Bali, Indonesia
Did you know Bali is actually home to the fourth largest country in the world? Although Bali is just a small part of Indonesia, there’s a reason why it’s gotten further and further up most people’s wanderlust list. With wild beaches to surf, and the cultural epicentre of Ubud to lose yourself in, not to mention the extravagant hotspot on the Bukit Peninsula, the magic of Bali that you hear about so often will absolutely ring true as soon as you set eyes on it.
Top 3 Things To Do:
• Take a sunrise hike up Mount Batur
• Explore Ubud’s infamous rice paddies
• Visit Tanah Lot – a traditional Balinese temple

What’s the best time to go to Bali?

With a tropical climate all year round, Bali has dry and wet seasons. During the months of April, May, June and September, it’s peak dry season– and the weather is also slightly less humid. July and August are high season, meaning they will be the busiest – so for a more relaxed bucket list holiday where you can discover Bali without the crowds, the quieter months may be best for you.

3. Santorini, Greece
Described as one of the most beautiful places to visit in the Mediterranean, for a luxury beach holiday in Europe, there is no better place than Santorini. Notorious for its white-washed clifftop villages, and dominated by picturesque views, this island makes for a popular choice for luxury holiday destination goers. With laid back island life and luxury intertwined in a bucket list holiday essential, Santorini is fast becoming Greece’s crowning jewel.
Top 3 Things To Do:
• Explore the Santorini Caldera volcano
• Watch the sunset in the village of Imerovigli
• Discover the ruins of Akrotiri archaeological site

What’s the best time to go to Santorini?

Following a standard Mediterranean climate pattern, expect long and sunny days from April to the end of September. November to April have cooler temperatures in the mid-teens – so for a luxury beach holiday watching the beautiful Santorini sunsets, the summer months are the best time for you.

4. Mauritius, Indian Ocean
Combining the rich cultures of Africa, India, Europe and Asia into one beautiful island in the Indian Ocean, Mauritius is a bucket list destination that ticks all the right boxes for luxury travel. Mauritius is littered with white sand beaches across the coast lines, sugar cane fields and picturesque mountains, all adding to the stunning scenery of this destination. As a small island that’s not much bigger than Surrey, it finds itself as a luxury holiday destination that just has to be ticked off any traveller’s bucket list.
Top 3 Things To Do:
• Hike through Black River Gorges National Park
• Relax on the beach of Flic-en-Flac
• Climb Le Morne Brabant peninsula– 556m above sea level

What’s the best time to go to Mauritius?

With seasons opposite to those of the UK, make sure you explore this luxury holiday destination in its peak climate. For the maximum hours of sunshine, visit Mauritius from October to January. February to April have the highest average temperatures in the high-twenties, whereas June to August is Mauritius’ winter so climate is a little cooler.
