Calling all turkey basters and roast potato fluffers.

Does the thought of Christmas send you into a downward spiral of Christmas fatigue? Are you tired of the Christmas admin and it's only September? Well, we know a place where you won't need to lift a finger and relaxation is the country's raison d'etre. Enter, the Maldives. An idyllic set of islands with water so blue that we hear even Father Christmas takes a break for a quick dip. Jokes aside, a luxury Christmas getaway to the Maldives is all about impeccable service, eating like a King/Queen (delete as appropriate) and enjoying nature's beauty. If you can drag yourself away from the sun bed, the diving is world class and you can rest assured your little nippers will be well entertained at one of the equally esteemed kids clubs.

A quick word to the wise: the Maldives books up extremely quickly for Christmas getaways so be sure to book early.
