Bella Luce Hotel & Spa
Complimentary bikes, plus (subject to availability) an upgrade, early check-in or late check out.
TUCKED AWAY AMONG GUERNSEY'S green lanes, Bella Luce Hotel and Spa is fast making its name as one of the island’s top places to eat, sleep and unwind.
This 12th century manor turned smart boutique hotel lies ten minutes from Guernsey’s capital, St Peter Port, just a short stroll from the south coast bays that inspired Renoir and other visiting artists.
Beautifully restored and boasting an up-to-the-minute spa, Bella Luce mixes classic elegance with bags of historic character. Antique wood floors are set off with furniture from Andrew Martin – one of the UK’s hottest designer names – exposed stonework, beamed ceilings, bold fabrics and statement-making artworks.
Mock baroque beds
Impeccably styled bedrooms entice in a palette of neutrals accented in black, purple and darkest coffee. All are individually designed – some with mock-baroque style beds, others with contemporary four posters or high leather headboards. All have an abundance of natural light.
Bella Luce isn’t just a pretty face – it also boasts a seriously impressive kitchen that uses only organic beef, local fish and garden-grown veggies and herbs. Look forward to gourmet dining in the candlelit Garden restaurant with crackling fires in winter and an al fresco terrace in summer.
If all that good food starts the guilt pangs, fear not – Bella Spa is on hand to pummel you into shape or pamper you into deep relaxation.
Bella Luce sits at the top of the valley that meanders down to rugged Moulin Huet bay – a scene that captivated Renoir and featured in all his Guernsey canvases. Stunning cliff walks abound here, and on a clear day you can even spot the French coastline of St Malo. Super-friendly staff will help ensure you get the max from your stay.
