The prime minister will jet off to the private island of Mustique - favoured by the rich and famous.
The Times reported Johnson and Symonds will be staying with the Von Bismark family - who are descended from the first German chancellor Otto Von Bismark - in the new year.
Known for its white-sand beaches, the exclusive island in the archipelago nation of St Vincent and the Grenadines is a favourite of the rich and famous with Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger owning property on the island.
It is also a favourite of the Royal Family, with the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall having holidayed there as well as Princess Margaret who was gifted land on the island as a wedding present.
She was famously photographed in 1976 with Roddy Llewellyn while still married to Lord Snowden, which caused a major royal scandal.
