Yoga and meditation: seven nights in India from £1,299 pp: India is the home of yoga and there are few better places to practice your asanas (postures) than the tranquil and lush surroundings of The Leela Goa. As well as daily yoga, Goa’s most luxurious resort – a contemporary celebration of south India’s Vijayanagara Empire temple and palace architecture – offers early-morning meditation, a 12-hole golf course, a secluded beach and an opulent spa with holistic Ayurvedic and eastern treatments.

DialAFlight offers seven nights for the price of six at The Leela Goa. The price is from £1,299 pp (two sharing) including seven nights’ accommodation with breakfast and flights (Heathrow). Valid for departures from 1 November to 11 December 2015. Book by 30 November 2015.

Indian Ocean island paradise seven nights in the Maldives in January from £3,659 pp: Find inner calm in the Indian Ocean. Few places in the world can beat the Maldives for serenity and sublime scenery. The Jumeirah Dhevanafushi is a decadent sanctuary offering complete seclusion on a palm-fringed island at the southern end of the Maldives archipelago, surrounded by unspoilt coral reefs, soft-white sand and crystal-clear waters. There’s a private butler service, an over-water spa with glass floor for admiring the colourful sea life mid-massage and, guests can dine anywhere they desire – pick a sublime spot on the island (or a neighbouring one) and the chef will prepare a lobster picnic or delicious beef barbecue.

DialAFlight offers £1,500 pp savings at the Jumeirah Dhevanafushi Maldives in January 2016. The price is from £3,659 pp (two sharing) including seven nights’ accommodation with breakfast, transfers and flights (Gatwick). Valid for departures from 10 to 25 January 2016. Book by 31 October 2015.

Stay at a historic landmark hotel: five nights in Brazil in January from £1,369 pp: The spotlight will be shining brightly on Rio de Janeiro next year as the city prepares to host the 2016 Summer Olympics. Visit before the Games (and crowds) for a spot of winter sun and check into the city’s most renowned address, the Belmond Copacabana Palace. Built in 1923 for the visiting king of Belgium, this was the first luxury hotel in South America and today remains the grande dame of Rio and the stomping ground of the rich, famous and fabulous. The hotel has a beautiful neoclassical façade, rooftop tennis court, stunning swimming pool and Michelin-starred dining at its MEE restaurant.
