The glamorous emirate where too much is never enough, your holiday to Dubai during the winter months will be greeted with nothing less than fantastic weather, making it an ideal fit for Kenwood’s Winter Sun Hotlist. Boasting highs of 21-degrees in December, this time of year is a perfect alternative to when the intense 35-degree July heat can be a little unbearable. During your holiday to Dubai, why not shop ‘til you drop at the Dubai Mall, gaze at the iconic skyline from the top of the Burj Khalifa, or set up camp at the luxurious Palazzo Versace Dubai? You won’t regret it – trust me.
After all, it’s called the Sunshine State! Holidays to Florida are guaranteed to have brilliant weather all-year-round, contributing to the happy-go-lucky spirit of the locals, the atmosphere of magical Disney World, and, of course, adding to the envy of your friends and family back home. From Naples to Miami, highs of 22 degrees across December and January secure Florida’s place on Kenwood’s Winter Sun Hotlist and the excellent world-famous theme parks in Orlando ensure that boredom is never on the agenda.

The hottest on Kenwood’s Winter Sun Hotlist, expect average temperatures just shy of 30 degrees from January all the way through to December. The Maldives is a location of pure serenity – think elegant overwater villas, turquoise waters and pure luxury wherever you turn. Unparalleled in terms of natural beauty, Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa knows no boundaries when it comes to picturesque landscapes, relaxation and spectacular fine dining, and is sure to make your winter sun experience one you won’t forget in a hurry.
Sun, sea and sand – it’s a cliché for a reason! A Caribbean superpower in its own right, Antigua is truly spectacular for a luxurious getaway and all-year-round sunshine. In fact, the island’s mantra is “the beach is just the beginning”, and trust me when I say that the 365 (yes, really) stretches of sand are an incredible place to start. Catch the Caribbean rays with a lounge on the shore, cool off with a swim in the crystal-clear waters, or raise your heart rate with some adrenaline-pumping watersports. Sample authentic Caribbean cuisine washed down with a rum punch or two, and simply bask in the beauty of island life. The cherry on top of Antigua as part of Kenwood’s Winter Sun Hotlist is the host of five-star resorts such as the tranquil Carlisle Bay.
It goes without saying that Tenerife deserves a spot on Kenwood’s Winter Sun Hotlist. Ideal for those who want their fix of sunshine without the long-haul flight, The Canary Islands’ location just off the north-west coast of Africa means that the average temperature rarely dips below a brilliant 20 degrees. Tenerife is the ideal family-friendly holiday thanks to its water parks and striking resorts such as The Ritz-Carlton Abama which boasts two Michelin-starred restaurants, a 72-par golf course and an exquisite spa.
