It’s time to start planning get-togethers with family and friends and choose the perfect place to do this. If you want to do something different this year and you still haven’t decided what, we suggest a trip! We have selected four destinations where you are sure to spend an unforgettable Christmas.

Sri Lanka

Our first suggestion is to travel to Sri Lanka and swap the classic Santa Claus hat for a swimming costume. This paradise will offer you a different kind of Christmas with dream beaches and an enviable climate, as this is the best time of year to visit! Travelling to this idyllic location is always a great plan, especially if you’re looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city streets at this time of the year.

Sri Lanka will offer you tranquillity and nature while you top up your tan from summer. And there are plenty of other places and wonders to visit. Where can you enjoy all this? At the Riu Sri Lanka hotel, where we guarantee you won’t want for anything! This incredible 5-star establishment is located on the wonderful Ahungalla Beach. With its 24h All Inclusive service you will have ample chance to enjoy all the comforts, services and activities that this hotel has prepared for you. Without a doubt, it will be a unique Christmas that will stay with you forever.

Radical change! If, on the other hand, you are someone who lives Christmas to the max, with its lights and traditions, London is your destination! Over this period it becomes, if possible, a place with an even more special charm where you can take magical walks.

We recommend that you do not leave London without visiting Oxford Street. This well-known shopping spot gets even busier at Christmas time because of its spectacular lights. You can also go to the famous Hyde Park where every year they put on a show called Winter Wonderland. Here you will find everything from a traditional Christmas market to Father Christmas’ house! It is a true paradise for fans of Christmas.  The truth is, there is a long list of Christmas activities you can do in London. The best thing is for you to go and discover them for yourself.

Plus, this is the first Christmas for our brand new London hotel. We can’t wait for you to come and experience these things with us and let us make you feel at home on these special days. Come to the Riu Plaza London Victoria this Christmas!

San Francisco

Who hasn’t dreamed of going to San Francisco? Treat yourself and give your family a holiday to remember in this impressive city where there is so much to do. You are also guaranteed a few days of magic and excitement because during the Christmas season there are plenty of holiday-related activities such as fairs and markets. You could also go ice skating, gaze at the lights in the streets and enjoy Christmas shows… The truth is that the portfolio of Christmas plans is endless!

The fashionable place! Another beach area where you can relax. Although it is a sun and sand destination, Christmas is also celebrated in a big way here! It is the best way to enjoy all the good things that this time of the year has to offer, with excellent weather thrown in!  The city essentially turns into a theme park, offering a wide range of activities for everyone. Among them is the ever-popular Santa’s Enchanted Forest, a huge fair with lots of rides and attractions, shows and food stalls. And best of all?
