It’s usually about this time in January after the December festivities come to an end and the weather gets colder that we start planning our yearly trips in an attempt to follow the sun. At The Peaks, we have some exciting new hotel partners for you to explore in some of the most breathtaking places around the world. If you’re looking for adventure and culture with a stable climate year-round, Mexico is for you. If, however, you’re after a secluded and restful escape, why not wake up with a view of the Indian Ocean in the Maldives? No matter what type of holiday you’re looking for, we can help create an itinerary that is perfect for you. Scroll down to see our favorite places to travel this time of year to beat those pesky winter blues.
Originally built as the private home of an Italian duchess, Hotel Esencia is nestled beside the Yucatán jungle, in a remote peaceful location. The food at their restaurant is exquisite, offering a unique Japanese Mexican fusion menu and the rooms are more like suites..

Each room has a private terrace, providing the ultimate location to enjoy the breathtaking sunsets with your sun-downer of choice (Our choice is a Margarita – Just in case you were wondering!) The tropical gardens create a serene atmosphere and provide the perfect backdrop to refresh the mind and rejuvenate the body.
Uninterrupted ocean views create a unique castaway experience at Soneva Jani. The beautifully designed villas offer the ultimate privacy and laid-back luxury – possibly some of the best villas we have ever seen in the Maldives! It’s unlikely you have been on social media and not seen their over-water villas.
Sundecks, water slides, and oceanfront pools are some of the features this stunning island offers guests. With the choice of multiple dining experiences scattered around the island, Cinema Paradiso (pictured) plus an abundance of aqua adventures, there is something for everyone. The best part of booking through us? … Each booking through the Peaks gets the Peaks Promise of a Sunset Dolphin cruise or a guided snorkeling tour with the in-house Marine Biologist.
Combining the pampering of 5-star hotel service with the seclusion and freedom of your own home, the Sungai Jungle Villas offer complete privacy. With only two villas on the property, they provide a personalized experience like no other. With a team of staff ready to treat you including a chef, it’s ideal for larger groups or families.
There are numerous exciting activities to keep the kids occupied, and for the adults you can enjoy surfing, games of golf, horse riding and numerous cultural wonders which are available nearby. The villas sit midway between Seminyak and Ubud, and are just 20 minutes from the famed surfing beaches of Canggu.
