The thought of white sands and crystal-clear waters might seem a little far-fetched for this time of year, but there’s no harm in looking ahead to your 2020 paradisal getaway.

If you had the Maldives in mind (who doesn’t?), there’s no better time to book than this coming Black Friday. The Turquoise Holiday Company – voted ‘The World’s Top Tour Operator’ in Condé Nast Traveler’s Reader’s Choice Awards 2019 – is offering guests the trip of a lifetime without necessarily breaking the bank.

Book from 28 November – 2 December 2019 for a seven-night stay on a half board basis at Six Senses Laamu from £1,999 per person

A unique opportunity to escape to the spectacular Indian Ocean islands, guests can book a seven-night stay at the sublime Six Senses Laamu with an impressive 50 per cent off, whether as a family or for two.

A blissfully secluded resort surrounded by unspoiled sands and sparkling waters, replete with luxurious stilted villas, Six Senses is the exemplar of hotel paradise. Located within the beautiful barrier reef-framed Laamu Atoll and with diving, wakeboarding and windsurfing opportunities – including an 8ft Yin Yang surf break shoreside – the hotel is a favourite with ocean explorers and water enthusiasts.

Dine in tranquillity at the resort’s many world-class waterside bars and restaurants, feasting on dishes curated with authentic Maldivian ingredients, and delight in a family-friendly ‘Cinema Under the Stars’ experience, yoga classes, island picnics, dolphin cruises and more.

Ideal for families, as well as romance, the resort offers ‘The Den’ for little ones, complete with the likes of movies, games, junior baking, and arts and crafts, while adults can take advantage of the restorative Six Senses Spa, delighting in an array of relaxing treatments, an exceptional fitness centre, nail spa, steam room and rooftop yoga studio.
