Where to go on holiday in January

Molly Thompson

The January blues, a well accustomed phrase and an all too familiar feeling for many brits. It’s no surprise that January remains the most popular month for booking a holiday to warm sunny places. But where do you start? Here are a few suggestions that prove a very popular escape for our customers during this month.

See our where to go, when guide for destination recommendations throughout the year.



While you shouldn’t expect scorching summer heat in Malta at this time of year, it’s still a great time to visit. Malta enjoys beautiful sunshine in January which makes it a gorgeous place to explore. It’s a quieter time of year too; with less tourists around you can enjoy a more calming and peaceful break. On an island as manageable as this you can do the usual city break things like monuments, museums, galleries and churches, and also fit in a couple of hikes and nature trails.

AX Palace, Sliema

Urban chic meets serene relaxation at AX The Palace, where a stunning mix of contemporary décor and old-fashioned elegance combine in one of Malta’s most sought-after five star hotels. The hotel is conveniently located 500 metres from a rocky beach and local restaurants, bars, cafés and the promenade in Sliema,

Grand Hotel Excelsior, Valletta

From its unique location by the edge of the sea, Grand Hotel Excelsior Malta is nestled between the mighty 16th century bastion walls of Valletta and the Marsamxett Harbour, and offers simply stunning views of both the harbour and Manoel Island.

The Phoenicia, Valletta

The Phoenicia Malta, situated a short stroll from Valletta’s city walls, was constructed during the 1940’s with an aim to become the city’s premier hotel. The aspiration was soon realised and the hotel is not only splendid, but ideally placed for visitors wanting to discover this truly remarkable city.

The Maldives The Maldives are also a fantastic destination during this month especially if you’re craving some heat. With hot, dry, sunny days and daytime temperatures consistently around 31 degrees, sun can be expected for up to 9 hours a day. There is excellent water clarity for diving and snorkelling.

Velassaru Maldives

Velassaru Maldives enjoys a stunning location on the water’s edge where turquoise waves lap the soft, white powder sand. The modern facilities of the hotel, complemented by exceptional service, deliver a luxury experience which is perfect for couples or honeymooners.

Finolhu Baa Atoll, Maldives

Offering luxury and beauty, Finolhu stretches out across four idyllic islands in the remote Baa Atoll, where marine life flourishes. It has been recognised as a UNESCO protected biological reserve and sustainability features high on its list of priorities.

Anantara Veli Maldives

This luxury, adults only resort, offers private outdoor movie screenings. Snuggle down into comfy beanbags, share some popcorn or gourmet snacks, and watch your favourite film under a starlit sky.

Lanzarote It’s no secret the Canary Islands offer reliable winter sun, but if you want more than beaches, Lanzarote can expand your horizons. Volcanic Timanfaya National Park offers an explosive patchwork of rainbow-coloured earth, Cesar Manrique’s architecture, and former eerie-like home, is made for marvelling at, and there’s underwater diving through the art park at Museo Atlantico and plenty of surfing.

In a tranquil location and right on the white sand Flamingo beach, Iberostar Selection Lanzarote Park enjoys breathtaking views of the ocean and is a short walk from the marina, bars and restaurants in Playa Blanca.
