Embark on a Christmas holiday to Thailand’s island of Phuket and you are unlikely to see a drop of rain throughout your entire vacation. Luxury resorts abound for every type of traveller, and our favourites include the jaw-dropping Trisara, family-friendly Indigo Pearl and the romantic Surin. Soneva Kiri in neighbouring Koh Kood is also a brilliant option for families with countless activities for children, but plenty for adults including treetop dining pods.

The Philippines also enjoys good weather during December, and if you want to really indulge over the holidays, why not stay at the private island resort of Amanpulo? If you’re looking for an off-the-beaten-track beach destination, Cambodia’s southern coast is very remote, and Song Saa is one of the best properties in our portfolio.

While also great for cultural holidays over Christmas, Sri Lanka has both culture and beaches, with its entire southern coast dotted with sandy bays and beautiful private villas and resorts.

Moving further south, Australia is coming into summer and what better beach holiday is there than swimming in the Great Barrier Reef? Lizard Island and Qualia in Queensland are absolutely stunning and are amongst the most exclusive in Australia.

All Lightfoot holidays are 100% tailor-made and suited to each individual customer. Call us now to speak to your personal Travel Designer, and book your bespoke Christmas beach holiday.
