Rio De Janeiro, Brazil

While it may be the dead of winter up here in the Northern Hemisphere, the Southern Hemisphere is enjoying mid-summer weather. This makes it the perfect time to both escape the cold and visit one of the most lively cities in South America: Rio de Janeiro. We love the super-classic Belmond Copacabana Palace hotel for a taste of Brazilian elegance. Just make sure to brush up on your Portuguese first.


Whitsunday Island, Australia

Located off the coast of Australia, in the majestic heart of the Great Barrier Reef, this picturesque island is truly the stuff of dreams. Imagine white sand beaches, crystal clear turquoise water, palm trees and Australian accents. For the perfect stay, we're all about the beachfront luxury of the One & Only Hayman Hotel's infinity pool and ocean view. What more could you ask for?


Turks And Caicos

If you're in the mood to fully tune out from the reality of winter, it's hard to beat a Caribbean white sand beach in Turks and Caicos. Enhance your stay by going with one of the islands numerous five-star hotels. Our preference? The gorgeous and ever-classic Palms Hotel.



If winter has you down, perhaps a bright pink sand beach is just the thing you need to cheer you up. Run with that pink theme and lounge around the Princess Bermuda hotel, whose pink exterior is as iconic as the pink beaches themselves.


Sharm El-Sheikh

Nestled along Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, Sharm el-Sheikh is the definition of exotic. Drink in hand, take in the views of the Red Sea while lounging in your own private cabana at the Sharm el Sheikh Four Seasons. Watch how quickly memories of snow melt away.
