2022 HOT LIST: Why Jersey is the place to visit

Publish date: 15 Dec 2021

It’s been 30 years since Bergerac last aired on TV (Christmas 1991) and a lot has happened in Jersey since. As 2022 fast approaches, the nine-by-five-mile Channel Island continues to be the ideal getaway for Brits. A short 45-minute flight from the UK, Jersey offers something for all types of travellers, with over 30 beaches, one of Europe’s largest oyster beds, turquoise waters, and Jersey cow dairy.

What’s new: SLEEPING

The Moorings Hotel – renovation

This long-time favourite has recently undergone a refurbishment, whilst retaining its original charm and character. Situated in the heart of Gorey Pier on the east coast of Jersey, The Moorings is a year-round hotspot. This boutique development now boasts four single rooms, eleven double rooms and several family rooms, many of which offer exceptional views over the Royal Bay of Grouville to France. The Moorings also offers a locally sourced rotating menu, including Grouville oysters and Jersey lobster.

Tea Field Cottages – luxury revamp

Luxury holiday accommodation set in one of Jersey’s four tea plantations, the recently renovated two-bedroom granite cottages, Matcha and Bancha, date back to 1731. Located in rural St. Lawrence in the centre of the island, the properties enjoy stunning views across the countryside. The cottages, which each have their own barbecue patio, adjoin the owner’s house of Jersey Tea Company, one of two tea producers in the Island. Both produce hand-crafted, loose leaf premium products from tea grown at four sites.

Premier Inn, St. Helier – new opening

The construction of a second 122-room Premier Inn in St. Helier has broken ground.

The new property helps to redevelopment this part of St. Helier, benefiting both islanders and visitors.


The Beach Club

Randall’s Jersey is excited to introduce another hot spot to its chain of restaurants across the island this Spring. The Beach Club, located on St. Brelade’s Bay will offer 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 all night long.

Bohemia celebrates 17 years of Michelin-stars

The Watchmaker exclusive bar opens

Inspired by his hotelier grandfather, Bruno Santos-Costa bought one of the oldest buildings in St. Helier to open a wine and charcuterie bar.

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. Open Monday – Saturday from 12pm – 11pm.
