After only visiting Jersey when I was a little girl my memories were a little vague, so I was over the moon to be given the opportunity of visiting Jersey for a 3 night tour of the island. We flew from East Midlands and 1.30 hour later we arrived to beautiful warm sunshine in March.
Whisked away and 10 minutes later we arrived at St Brelade’s Bay on Jersey’s south coast. This beautiful stretch of golden sand took my breath away and just reminded me of one of my favourite beaches in Ibiza.
L’Horizon is a 4 star hotel situated on the beach front with a lovely terrace to sit and admire the views and dine al fresco which I could sit here all day and soak up the sun
The hotel has a 2 AA rosette restaurant, modern luxury rooms with one of the best health clubs and luxurious spas and indoor swimming pool.
We visited Les Ormes Resort which is Jerseys premier self catering activity and leisure venue. Great lodges with outdoor hot tubs and larger lodges to cater for bigger families. They had an outdoor and indoor swimming pool and had lots of activities included in the price, which reminded me of Center Parcs.
We stayed at Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel on Elizabeth Marina in St Helier.
Our room was spacious ,chic, brightly decorated and looked out onto the marina. This is an ideal hotel if you are wanting to stay in the centre and walking distance to the town.
The Grand Hotel 5 * in St Helier, amazing views again of St Helier.
The rooms were very tastefully decorated with different coloured themed roomed and dimmed lightening. An amazing spa, treatment rooms and indoor pool
We dined in Victoria’s restaurant which lived up to its expectations and to top it all it had a Champagne Lounge with over 100 champagnes.
Our next stay was at The Royal Yacht for 2 nights which overlooks liberation Square in St Helier. This was my kind of hotel very contemporary with a bustling assortment of bars which came alive at night. It also had 3 restaurants and a luxurious spa which we visited each morning and tried the various treatment rooms out. The rooms very modern with a rain shower and under floor heating.
We visited several hotels in the town, the Norfolk a great 2 star, family run hotel in the centre which has just had a re furbishment. And has a lovely out door terrace and pool.
The Mayfair 3* great location, with a gym, indoor pool and coffee shop and regular evening entertainment.
We then cycled from St Helier to St Aubin along the seafront which I think was one of my highlights of the trip.
We arrived at this beautiful quaint village which I felt like I was in France, then walked up to the Country House The Somerville.
This hotel ticked all the boxes for me, the hotel overlooked the bay with an outdoor swimming pool and lovely gardens to sunbath in.
The rooms very tastefully decorated which were finished to a very high standard through to the bathrooms with also several rooms with your own sun loungers and terrace for the more little luxuries. We stayed for a light Asian infused lunch before heading back for our bike ride to St Helier.
Loungeville Manor, once a stately home and full of grandeur. Situated a bit out of town the grounds were immaculate with the outdoor swimming pool, lake and kitchen garden where most of the produce was grown on site and the cottage garden mini gym and outdoor spa. After 3 cups of tea which tasted as good as champagne and one too many cakes I can honestly say this was the best afternoon tea I have ever had.
Pomme d’Or Hotel which is one of the most famous hotels located in the centre of St Helier overlooking Liberation Sqaure and St Helier’s yacht marina.
This family run hotel is not only famous for its history but also for its Seafood buffet. The rooms are very spacious, modern and beautifully decorated.
We visited the Jersey Museum then headed on to Durrell Wildlife Park. This is well worth a day out and they also had luxury outdoor glamping but it gets booked up very quickly. The park has an amazing variety of animals and was a great day out.
We then visited the War Tunnels which are now a museum and was like stepping back in time, it was so interesting to learn about the history when Jersey was taken over by the Germans and after 5 long years the war was over and Jersey was free again!!
Our last day we visited The hotel Miramar in St Brelade’s Bay. This family run hotel had amazing views with a lovely outdoor pool and was dog friendly.
We wandered down the lane which only took around 10 minutes and took our last few photos of the beach before heading back to the airport.
I was only here for a short time but I managed to visit many of the hotels which cater for a wide range of people from couples, to families depending what you are looking for from your visit to Jersey.
A beautiful island with something for everyone, you can get around the small island either by bike, hire a car or use the public transport. Only an hour away from the UK and you feel like your miles away from home.
I had a very enjoyable 4 days in Jersey and I cant wait to visit once more and stay at The Somerville with my husband.
