There is nothing like cold chilling air or snow covering once-green grass to make you crave a winter getaway. But sometimes, finding that perfect place to spend quality time away from life’s hassles is challenging. Whether it’s a special occasion, such as a milestone birthday or anniversary, or you need an escape, I’ve selected the most spectacular hotels and resorts for sun-drenched places to travel this winter.
You can kiss the cold goodbye for at least a week or more by putting your feet in the sand in these four places.
1. CAP Maison, St Lucia
A luxurious hidden gem near Rodney Bay, Cap Maison boasts its own secluded beach. As one of the most sought-after spots on the island, this oasis offers 49 stylish and intimate villa suites.
Guests can indulge in various treatments at the on-site Spa Maison, which uses the finest products from Sothys of Paris.
In this dramatic cliff-top setting, the most talented musicians in Saint Lucia perform.
Two of the best restaurants on the island are located at Cap Maison, the Cliff at Cap, and the Naked Fisherman.

3. Las Catalinas, Costa Rica
If you look at the sea from Las Catalinas, the Pacific stretches in every direction and beckons with countless activities. In this location of Costa Rica, warm waters make for fantastic swimming, snorkeling, diving, and kayaking.
Casa Chameleon is an elegant boutique hotel perched high above Las Catalinas, just five minutes from the town. Each of the 21 villas on the adults-only property features a saltwater plunge pool, ocean views, and a minimalist contemporary design. A curated and comfortable experience is created with a philosophy of handcrafted elegance with sustainable elements.
Relax poolside with a cocktail or discover the town of Las Catalinas, dotted with walkable streets and plazas, from the Sentido Norte Bar.
4. The Grace Bay Club, Turks & Caicos
As Turks & Caicos’ first luxury all-suite resort, Grace Bay Club offers guests a far superior experience than traditional hotels. A world-class beach lies a few meters from the iconic and original Grace Bay Club, which combines white sand with crystal waters to create timeless luxury.
This beachfront destination has three distinct offerings: The Hotel, Villas Suites, and The Estate, a uber-luxe resort within a resort.
In addition to breathtaking sunrise strolls and romantic sunset dinners, a sense of grace permeates the resort. Guests can enjoy access to myriad activities, a selection of pools, and innovative dining offerings.
