At just nine miles by five, Jersey is small but perfectly formed by the sea.
Closer to France than the UK, it benefits from a mix of cultural influences and a favourable climate.
The Club Hotel & Spa is located in the centre of the island’s capital, a short stroll from the shops and the bars and restaurants on the waterfront.
The hotel boasts a stunning spa with salt water pool and thermal suite.
We were treated to an aromatic fusion massage by skilled therapist Atlanta before reclining in the luxury of the relaxation room.
Afternoon tea at The Club is a luxurious affair featuring delicate savoury and sweet treats as well as scones with jam, cream and Jersey black butter (a rich preserve made from apples and spices) – and champers, of course!
Bohemia restaurant within The Club is the jewel in an already glittering crown.
With more Michelin-starred menus than you can shake a stick at, we were spoilt for choice. Chef Steve Smith’s masterful touch made for an enjoyable evening of local delights including beef tartare, turbot and lamb.
We had time to visit some of the island’s incredible beaches, the dramatic Gorey Castle, the zoo, museum and art gallery and the fascinating war tunnels as well as spotting the gorgeous Jersey cows.
A long weekend at the Club Hotel & Spa in St Helier is the perfect way to celebrate new direct flights from Edinburgh to the Channel Island of Jersey.
