Great food a great place to stay and certainly a great destination to visit.
Look no further than the small island of Jersey this little part of Great Britain that is just off the coast of France. The Atlantic Hotel situated high on a hill at the end of the 4mile long St Ouen’s Bay is a great answer. Being a member of small luxury hotels of the world makes it special too!
Michelin magic thanks chef Mark Jordan’s ‘Ocean’ restaurant at the hotel and his excellent team ensuring a top class dining experience using the cream of the crop of the island’s ingredients.
Shellfish from just the other end of the bay, their meat from farmers Darren and Julia Quenault and their Classic Herd with herbs and vegetables from the rich Jersey soil that still grows world famous produce like their ‘Jersey Royals’ for instance.
The hotel has an easy relaxed and contemporary feel and whose staff are attentive and at your service whenever you require them or discreet should that suit your mood.
The Atlantic offers a range of packages if you require a more inclusive deal such as dinner in the Michelin dining room and free car hire that offer costs £115 per person per night. They also offer extended ‘Michelin Experience’ packages like a four night stay at the hotel and take in dinner each night a different Michelin restaurant on the island, there are four of them at £500 per person for the four nights.

With a golf course directly outside the hotel that certainly attracts some guests. The island is perfect for walking and cycling in its wooded valleys or rugged cliffs. With dozens of golden sand beaches the whole place is excellent for kite surfing, swimming and fishing.
Although a fairly small, the island has a rich culture and history. It was the only part of the UK to be occupied by the German forces during World War II and today many of those fortifications can still be seen and visited.
