Whether you count down to midnight at an exotic locale or kick off the New Year close to home, these four trips will ignite enthusiasm for the year to come.

Celebrate in the city

’Tis the season to celebrate at New York’s Four Seasons Hotel. Gingerbread house decorating classes will be taught by the pastry chef, and on Christmas day lunch will be served at The Garden. Kick off the New Year at TY Bar with this year’s “Roaring ’20s” theme, Roederer Cristal Champagne and a confetti drop. Start the New Year on a high note the next morning at the “New Year’s Day Recovery Bar” with customized Bloody Mary’s; fourseasons.com or 844.760.6347.

Escape to Hong Kong

Ring in 2017 with spectacular style during a five-day journey with Abercrombie & Kent. Take a trip to Hong Kong, and reside in the lavish Mandarin Oriental Hotel on Victoria Harbour. Take a foodie tour of Sham Shui Po market and a culinary trail through Hong Kong neighborhoods. Dine with a privileged view of the world-renowned Hong Kong fireworks and Symphony of Lights.  Ride like a local on the Victoria Peak Tram or take a Sampan cruise down Aberdeen Bay; abercrombiekent.com or 800.738.0716.  

Adventure the tropics

Celebrate the holidays with Adventure Smith Explorations’ Uncharted Isthmus! Sloths, Monkeys & Mangroves. The eight-day cruise takes you through the untamed nature of Costa Rica and Panama on an intimate, 62-guest Safari Voyager.

Holiday in the sun

Grenada is the perfect island getaway during the holiday season. The Villas at Laluna can accommodate the whole family and then some, with up to five bedrooms per villa. From holiday decorations and carolers, to Ponche Crème (egg nog made with local rum), to Christmas morning barbecues on the beach, Laluna caters to every generation in the family to create home away from home; laluna.com or 473.439.0600.   

Vacation in Mexico

Mazatlán is rich in traditions during the holiday season, and Casa Lucila invites guests to make merry. This family-owned boutique hotel offers a Christmas package that includes transportation to the nearby market in order to purchase gifts and festive Poinsettias. Guests can take a private tamale-making class with chef Pepe of Lucila’s Restaurant, or enjoy a holiday feast at the home’s long dining table, featuring a roast turkey and Roscón de reyes (King’s Bread), a traditional wreath-shaped pastry, ending the special day with a sparkling toast around Casa Lucila’s Christmas tree; casalucila.com or 52.669.982.1100
