Beat the Blue Monday Blues

By Elegant Resorts Travel Experts

Posted: 16 January 2017

Blue Monday? Not in the world of Elegant Resorts. The noxious combination of January drizzle, chaotic high street sales, detox mentality and, of course, the official end to the party season makes mid-January something of a melancholy minefield. However, the ever resourceful Elegant Resorts Travel Consultants are on hand with some colourful luxury travel solutions to make your Blue Monday a happy one by enjoying a healthy dose of Vitamin Sea!

Meander in the Maldives
Words fail when it comes to capturing the incredible blue beauty of the Maldives. An alluring array of attractive atolls, seemingly scattered by the angels in swathes of sapphire and turquoise waters, the Maldives have, quite rightly, earned a reputation as ‘Heaven on Earth’, and at this time of year there is no better place to beat the January blues. Admire the unforgettable vistas from your luxurious overwater villa, soothe the excess of the festive season in the spa or simply relax on your private sundeck to forget the dreary reality of home.

Pontificate in Paradise
The Caribbean in winter is a real winner for alleviating wanderlust. Vibrant culture, colourful cuisine and welcoming locals; there is no better place to enjoy winter sun and lots of fun. Each island is rich in its own unique style and character, but the best blue hues belong to the undisturbed beauty of St Barths, the sophisticated sanguine seas of St Kitts and Nevis and the beguiling bliss of Bermuda. With miles of soft sand, stunning sunsets and signature cocktails at every turn, it would be easy to forget January is anything other than joyful.

Be Charmed by Cyprus
A certified smorgasbord of picturesque panoramas, tranquil beaches and idyllic island living, Cyprus is a delightful destination for a short-haul pick-me-up. Surrounded by cyan waters and award-winning beaches, Cyprus is a gorgeous gem located on the edge of Europe and home to some of the continent’s finest five-star resorts. If the festive season left you too short-changed for a January jaunt, plan to visit Cyprus from May onwards when the temperatures begin their steady climb and the magic of this ancient island stretches into full bloom.

Immerse in Wellness at Lake Tahoe
America’s national colours may be red, white and blue, but at Lake Tahoe, there’s only one shade of the star spangled banner that matters. Perhaps only Ol’ Blue Eyes himself could rival the stunning shades of blue present in America’s largest Alpine lake. Straddling the border of California and Nevada, Lake Tahoe is a mystical setting surrounded by natural beauty and all manner of activities, including skiing, snowboarding, watersports, hiking and rejuvenation spas. We all know water is the lifeblood of healthy living and we’re pretty sure Lake Tahoe is the fountain of Blue Monday-beating happiness.

Be Uplifted Down Under
January isn’t globally synonymous with doom and gloom. In the Southern Hemisphere, January is actually a summer month and, for our Aussie cousins at least, represents beach barbeques, long sun-drenched days and the beauty of another year beginning. In Queensland, days are best spent deep in the blue brilliance of the Great Barrier Reef. Observe the world’s most colourful marine life and delicate coral reefs in all their glory, whilst the bright white radiance of The Whitsundays makes every day feel like a gift. See the blue colour spectrum brought to life in a most striking setting and you’ll never judge January negatively again.
