Our Gift to You: Last Minute Christmas Getaways

So you’re probably the sort who gets in the gates 5 minutes before the flight is due and fight for the doors before malls close. Don’t worry, we’re all the same. That said, we know some of you are just realising that Christmas is dawning upon you and as our gift to you, we decided to put together 5 last minute Christmas getaways that are still available for all you procrastinators.

You’re welcome.

No. of rooms: 5 bedrooms

Special stuff: It’s the only 3-storey luxury stay in the heart of the charming Fisherman’s Village, Bophut. It’s located right on the beach which means direct beach access from the second you wake up, plus it’s in the dining hub of Samui. That means food all around! What’s a Christmas without food? There’s also a rooftop jacuzzi so you can bubble away all that pent-up tension.

#2 Kurumba Maldives

This is waaaaaay better than opening presents!
