Barbados is an exciting place to stay in December, though it’s pricey over Christmas and New Year, when the restaurants are busy and partying is guaranteed.
If you want splendid isolation, go for The Atlantis on the quiet east coast.
For something more intimate, I recommend Jamaica Inn, an elegant boutique hotel dating back to the 1950s where each suite looks out over a secluded beach.
On the small friendly island of Grenada, Laluna is a particularly stylish hideaway.
Do you want a remote hideaway or a buzzing hotel surrounded by hip restaurants?
Are you interested in local culture, or just a perfect hotel on a white sand beach? As a destination it’s much under-rated, with lush rainforest, a vibrant local culture and beautiful beaches.
Although it’s known for its all-inclusive hotels (many of which are excellent), the Dominican Republic has some luxury boutique hotels too.
Avoid the pile-’em-high cheap ships sailing out of Miami and instead book a cabin on a small luxury cruise ship such as the Sea Dream Yacht Club or Seabourn, where crew outnumber guests by two to one and all the cabins are suites with a private balcony. For some old-school romance, you could go cruising with Star Clippers which has a small fleet of traditional sailing ships that are able to visit smaller ports of call that the larger vessels can’t reach.
If you are prepared to fly long haul, the world is your oyster.
The Caribbean and Southern Africa are enjoying fabulous weather in December, and there are other great options from South East Asia and India to the paradise islands of the Maldives.
If you love nature and want a bit of an adventure, Costa Rica offers a great combination of rainforest, national parks, volcanoes, surf beaches and amazing wildlife.
This two-week Costa Rica self-drive takes in most of the key sights, but if your budget is tight this 11-night Value Costa Rica tour is a real snip from just £1,250 per person including flights. Also in Central America, I love this two-week twin-centre honeymoon in Guatemala and Belize.
Or go all-inclusive at the newly-opened Sandals La Source Grenada Resort & Spa which is set on a remote beach.
