2022 is set to confirm that this idyllic, nine-by-five-mile island is still the ideal getaway. A short hop from over 20 UK airports, or an easy ferry ride from Poole or Portsmouth, Jersey has plenty in store whether you’re a seasoned traveller or if it’s your first time stepping onto our shores. From new places to rest your head, delightfully fresh dining experiences and the latest things to see and do, Jersey will keep a smile on your face for your whole holiday.

Stay.

New places to call home on your island break.

The Moorings Hotel and Restaurant – This neighbourhood bistro with rooms, a long-time favourite with locals and visitors alike, has been carefully refurbished by its new owners. Sitting pretty right in the middle of Gorey Pier, The Moorings is a year-round hotspot that still oozes with its original charm and character. Many of their delightfully decorated rooms offer fabulous views over the Royal Bay of Grouville. Their menu draws a strong Gallic influence from our French neighbours, just a short hop away, along with some inspiration from around the world. Make sure to try the Grouville oysters and Jersey lobster!

Premier Inn, St. Helier – The construction of a second Premier Inn in St. Helier is now underway. The new Bath Street development, known as Merchant’s Square, will bring all the handy conveniences of Premier Inn to the bustling heart of St. Helier, Jersey’s pretty market town. With budget friendly room rates and a fabulous central location, you couldn’t ask for a better base for your island adventures.

Tea Field Cottages – There’s nothing more soothing that a good cup of tea, so what better place to hideaway during your island getaway than on a tea plantation? The recently renovated two-bedroom granite cottages, Matcha and Bancha, date back to 1731 and offer luxury self-catering accommodation with stunning countryside views. The cottages, which each have their own barbecue patio, adjoin the owners of The Jersey Tea Company’s house, one of two tea producers in the island. Both create hand-crafted, loose leaf premium products from tea grown at four sites.

Eat and drink.

Tuck in at these fresh dining and drinking joints.

The Watchmaker – Inspired by his hotelier grandfather, Bruno Santos-Costa bought one of the oldest buildings in St. Helier to open a wine and charcuterie bar. The oldest record of this establishment is from 1871 when it was owned by the Edgar brothers, who were watchmakers. Named after its historical past, The Watchmaker serves gourmet sharing platters, with charcuterie and cheese, along with a wide selection of wines, with over 50 reds and whites on offer… cheers.

The Beach Club – Randalls Jersey will be introducing another hot spot to its chain of restaurants across the island this spring. The Beach Club will sit pretty on the boardwalk of popular St. Brelade’s Bay, offering a relaxed beach side club spot for both family and friends to enjoy delicious food and sunset cocktails. It promises to be the perfect brunch spot after a thrilling morning of surfing or even the ideal setting to let your hair down for dinner and drinks come the evening.

Bohemia – Celebrating 17 years of Michelin-stars, this fine dining haven located within The Club Hotel & Spa in St. Helier, has retained its Michelin-star for another year under new Head Chef Callum Graham, who took the helm in January 2020. Bohemia remains the only restaurant in Jersey to hold a Michelin-star. Bohemia has also been rated in the top 1000 Restaurants in the World by LA LISTE 2022, the only restaurant in the Channel Islands to be listed. A visit to Bohemia isn’t to be missed if you like the taste of the finer things or are looking for a special spot to spend an evening.

See and do.
