There’s no question that Jersey has become one of the most sought-after holiday spots in the UK. The idyllic island escape boasts charming country lanes, far-reaching cliff top views and beautiful sandy beaches – qualities that make it the perfect holiday destination for the whole family.
The island boasts its fair share of celebrity visitors (rumour has it, acclaimed actor Johnny Depp lives just a short boat ride away from the island and regularly visits), whilst also catering to those of us who are slightly more economically conscious. For such a small island, Jersey offers an impressive range of accommodation options for varied budgets.
Below, we have rounded up a range of retreats to enjoy your Jersey holiday at three levels of luxury:
Luxury option – The Club Hotel & Spa: For a stay with a luxurious touch, visit the stylish AA Red Star hotel The Club Hotel & Spa. The hotel’s restaurant Bohemia Bar & Restaurant provides unrivalled Michelin Star dining in the heart of Jersey, as well as an imaginative and truly divine Afternoon Tea. In the evening, head to Michelin-starred, 5 AA Rosette Bohemia which serves seasonal ingredient and flavour driven tasting menus. The following morning, start the day by heading to The Club Spa to indulge in luxurious spa treatments.
Standard option – Apollo Hotel: Apollo Hotel in St Helier offers traditionally styled rooms in Jersey’s capital. Situated just 5 minutes’ walk from the town, the hotel sits in an ideal location perfect for keeping the kids entertained. The property is well-equipped, with two pools, two bars, two restaurants and free parking. The 3-star hotel offers family friendly accommodation that sets the whole clan up for a day exploring Jersey’s spectacular landscape and bustling centre.
Camping Option – Beuvelande Campsite, Daisy Cottage Camping Retreat or Rozel Camping Park: For a relaxed camping trip, pack up your tent poles and waterproofs and head to one of Jersey’s many camping sites. If it’s camping with a slice of glamour you’re after, Beuvelande Campsite has recently built six new Bell Tents which join two yurts and a Safari tent in the Glamping area of the site. Tilleys Restaurant & Bar sits within the site and offers a range of picnic-perfect sandwiches and wraps.
