So without further ado, here are our quarantine-free winter sun top picks for 2020!
One of the safest countries to travel to during this pandemic, Cuba has just opened its borders! Take advantage of the amazing deals available this month, and enjoy the rare sight of quiet Caribbean beaches.
Combine your stay on the beach of Varadero with a few nights in Havana and experience the vibrant city life, full of salsa and mojitos. Take a tour in an American vintage car or cycle around on E-bikes.
Starting from £1000 per person, and including 4 nights in Vardero and 3 nights in Havana plus transfers, this itinerary also takes in a couple of amazing tours whilst in Havana.
The cherry on this Cuban cake; Virgin flights are presently less than half the usual price from London! So what are you waiting for? Contact Gosia and Barbara, who would be thrilled to help you plan your Cuban culture adventure.
The jewel of the Caribbean, Barbados is welcoming guests with some caution and there is a quarantine required on arrival – but don’t worry: this is most luxurious isolation ever.
The Fleewinter Barbados team will arrange for your villa to be fully stocked and we can even provide pre-cooked meals on request, leaving you free to sunbathe in the garden, finally finish that novel and enjoy the relaxed pace of island life.
You’ll need to take a couple of PCR tests, which if timed correctly keeps your island quarantine to just 2 days. Perfect time to get over the jet lag, and then you are free to fully enjoy the turquoise waters and exquisite white sand beaches of this Caribbean paradise. And as with all destinations listed here – no quarantine to worry about when you get back home.
Contact Lynn and Alba to plan your island retreat.
The ‘Garden Island’ of Madeira is a lush subtropical paradise like no other, making for a wonderful year-round holiday destination. And perfect for some quarantine free winter sun. Enjoy stunning natural scenery – from jagged cliffs and lush forests to delightful flower gardens and beaches boasting some of the best whale-watching in the world.
We’d choose as stay in the village of Ponta do Sol, just 30 minutes from the capital Funchal, and the sunniest spot of the island. Perched high on a cliff overlooking the Atlantic is the boutique hotel Estalagem Ponta do Sol, currently available from £475 per person for a 7-night stay. Or opt for a home-from-home in a self-catering villa such as Seacrest Villa.
Proof of a negative PCR test is required on arrival, and you must complete a Travel Authorization Form – and that’s it.
Let Sarah make your Madeira winter dreams a reality.
The glorious Maldives welcomes visitors with open arms, and December to February brings the very best weather. You can expect hot sunshine but low humidity. Choose your perfect island and settle in for a week or more in pure luxury at the best prices we’ve ever seen in the region.
Coco Bodu Hithi is a personal favourite of ours, with a serene atmosphere and charming island villas, available from £1,746 per person for a 7 night stay. Or if an overwater villa is a ‘bucket list’ item for you, this is certainly the time to make that dream a reality. The exquisite 5* villas at Anantara Veli are available from just £1,833 for a week.
You’ll need to provide proof of a negative PCR test and complete a form to enter, but that’s it. Contact our specialist Carly to discuss which of the 120+ private islands is just the right fit for you.
End the year in style and have a romantic, all-inclusive Christmas at a 5-star (adult-only) boutique hotel such as the Calabash Cove Resort & Spa.
We’re talking meals of course – and it’s lobster season over Christmas – but also premium brand drinks, Prosecco for breakfast, room service, in-room bar stocked with full-size bottles, WIFI and tips – a true fly and flop option, from £2998 per person.
Winter is tough for all of us. The lack of sunlight takes its toll on our mental and physical health in a regular year, but add in a global pandemic, and we could all do with some post lockdown rejuvenation.
Re-opening on the 1st of January, the Oceano Hotel Health Spa in Tenerife is the perfect place to start 2021 off the right way! A world away from the busy resorts, it is in prime location directly by the sea. The island’s mild year-round climate, the healing power of the nature, and the healthy OCÉANO balanced cuisine will naturally boost relaxation. The 7 night Relaxing Thalasso Escape is just what you need to get you back on track. From £1300 per person.
Proof of a negative PCR test is required on arrival and you must complete and submit a Travel Authorization Form. Sarah is our Spa and Wellness expert, and can offer some fantastic ideas to help start your 2021.
