Luxury List: Experience Jersey’s glamorous side

Publish date: 18 Jan 2022

Following the return of popular TV programme, The Real Housewives of Jersey, and news that reality TV stars, Spencer (Made in Chelsea) and Vogue Matthews have purchased a property on the island, Jersey is all about glitz and glam this January.

Forget the sales and January blues, with VAT-free shopping and a host of luxurious experiences, visitors to Jersey will feel a million dollars.

The largest of the Channel Islands, Jersey has beautiful coastlines, decadent restaurants, sweeping landscapes and homegrown hospitality. A short 45-minute flight from the UK and with additional BA routes announced from London City this summer, or just under five hours by ferry, Jersey is ideal for a “mini-haul” getaway where visitors can relax and indulge in a spot of luxury, partaking of a fine dining experience, a charted yacht, or premium spa treatments.

Champagne and Oyster Tours

Jersey is home to the largest oyster farms in Europe. With the third largest tidal range in the world and a rich 6,000-year history of enjoying oysters, visitors can venture into the depths of Seymour Oyster beds and enjoy a memorable tasting and Champagne tour. With over 14 million oysters set in tranquil crystal-clear waters, tour guides share the history of Jersey’s oyster farming. On a clear day the experience is complete with views of the French coast. Tours cost £30 per person.

Bohemia Restaurant

Bohemia Restaurant, located within The Club Hotel & Spa, has retained its Michelin-star for a 17th Year, the first star under new Head Chef Callum Graham, who was appointed in January 2020. Enjoy some of Jersey’s finest quality, fresh, local, and seasonal ingredients with a European inspired menu. 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. From foie gras to hand dived scallops, diners can experience new flavours and textures with its set menu. Set menu costs £99 per person, plus £59 for sommelier wine pairing.

Luxury Spa Day

Indulge in a luxury spa experience at Ayush Wellness Spa – offering a portfolio of authentic therapies and exclusive spa treatments administered by an Ayurvedic Physician and a team of Indian and European therapists.​ Guests can book a full body massage, where east meets west, using Dosha oils used as an ancient healing tradition to balance the mind and body. Pampered guests can enjoy a luxury day in the infinity pool, hydrotherapy pool and jacuzzi, hot and cold plunge pools, sauna and steam room. Jersey has over 12 spas and wellness centres to choose from – perfect for travellers to relax and unwind.

Bespoke Yacht Charter

Make the most of Jersey’s tidal landscape with Farways private yacht charter, the ultimate way to enjoy the island’s beautiful coastline. Guests wanting a seascape view of the Island can book a catamaran and enjoy a tour or explore Les Minquiers, one of the local offshore reefs to discover a private beach for the day. Included in the experience is a fresh seafood or charcuterie lunch, with Champagne – the ideal luxury day out at sea.

Shop til’ you drop  – Shopping in St. Helier

Explore an array of boutique and high-end stores – all VAT free. Luxury brands and designer jewellery are a must for a shopaholic heading to Jersey including local family run luxury jewellers Rivoli and Hettich. Soak up the atmosphere along Jersey’s cobbled town centre of St. Helier, which comprises historic markets, artisan products and independent pop ups.
