We’ve chosen the best places to ring in 2022 - something for everyone: beach destinations, resorts with spas and kids clubs, city hotels and cosy countryside hideaways. So, here is the list of our best places to spend New Year’s Eve this year.
Where to Ring In 2022 In Style?
If you want to celebrate the New Year’s Eve in paradise, then the Maldives will be the right option for you. There are so many private islands with magnificent resorts, one better than the other. The country is an ideal destination whether you travel with a group of friends, children or just as a couple.
A scenic 30-minute seaplane flight from Male International Airport, and you will find yourself in the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Baa Atoll, which is home to Vakkaru Maldives, blessed with timeless ocean views, powder-soft white sands, deep blue holes and house reef with unique marine biodiversity. If you wish to spend the period around New Year in a calmer and more peaceful way, the resort’s spa offers many wellness possibilities to detoxify, meditate or energize. Ayurvedic therapists propose personalised solutions that are specific to your needs, and in harmony with your constitutional dosha, to stimulate and enhance your overall well-being.
Located on one of North Malé Atoll's largest islands, the One&Only Reethi Rah is spoiled with azure bays and seemingly endless dreamy beaches. It is one of the best kid-friendly resorts in the Maldives, offering a variety of hands-on activities and outdoor adventures for the little ones at KidsOnly: snorkelling with sea turtles, learning how to make pasta, creating with arts and crafts, and playing dress-up. If you are travelling here as a couple, the romantic One&Only Reethi Rah will delight you with moonlit picnics, relaxing massages and curated experiences.

Tenerife is a very popular destination during the winter season, due to its pleasant and warm weather in December and January. There will be parties and fireworks in most of the towns and resorts on the island. Bars and restaurants also offer special New Year’s Eve themed dinners or parties.
There are two best resorts in Tenerife. One of them is The Ritz-Carlton, Abama, which is set on a spectacular clifftop in Guia de Isora. This Moorish-inspired offers an access to an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Ryder Cup player Dave Thomas, a tennis academy, a cycling centre, and kids’ club. An undisturbed beach is easily accessible by resort train, and there are several pools, immense spa facilities and inviting dining options – including two Michelin-starred restaurants (Basque region’s cuisine inspired M.B and Japanese restaurant – Abama Kabuki).
Another prestigious Tenerife‘s resort is Bahía del Duque, which sits directly on Playa del Duque, one of the best beaches in Costa Adeje. The Hotel, with a design that recreates a traditional Canarian Colonial villa from the 19th Century, covers an area of 100.000m², of which over 63.000m² are lush tropical gardens.
The resort‘s villas, desgined by the prestigious interior designer Pascua Ortega, have been built in a classic and elegant style using volcanic stone. Each one includes a private pool and separate solarium terrace. The rooms and bathrooms finished in basalt stone have the perfect combination of light, space and colour.
The architecture of the hotel full of bridges, passageways, gardens and swimming pools, leads the little ones to a world of fantasy, where the games organized by the entertainment team and the Duqui Club turn each moment into an unforgettable experience.
Expect something sensational in Dubai during the New Year’s Eve celebration: lots of dazzling fireworks, glitzy hotels and impressive food in trendy restaurants.
You can divide holiday in Dubai by staying a few nights in the city centre, at a luxury hotel like Raffles, Four Seasons Hotel Dubai International Financial Centre or Armani.
Then, head closer to the sea, where you can relax by the beach at a seaside resort like Mandarin Oriental Jumeira, Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach, One&Only The Palm or Bulgari. All of them offer stunning accommodations, exclusive dining options, sophisticated spa services and, most importantly, marvelous beaches and pools.
It’s worth reminding that Dubai is really worth travelling with children, as the city has so many amusement parks: Wild Wadi Waterpark, Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo, Legoland, Bollywood Parks Dubai, Motiongate and others.
