Hotel Review

The Royal Yacht is a great choice for those looking for a city-break experience in Jersey’s bustling capital St Helier. Rooms are spacious and finished to a high standard, some with balconies overlooking the comings and goings in Liberation Square below. The subterranean spa and pool is an adult-only area and a calm place to unwind and rejuvenate with treatments mixing Phytomer products and local ingredients, such as lavender. An aromatherapy steam room, salt steam, sauna and experience showers round off the facilities, and there’s a gym for those looking for a more active way to relax. But perhaps the biggest draw is the on-site nightlife. Several excellent restaurants satisfy whatever your craving is; be it a steak in the grill, fine dining in Sirocco or Asian favourites in Zephyr. The bars fill up with an after-work crowd and at weekends the Drift becomes the most popular place in town, with live bands, DJs and a vibrant atmosphere.

The Royal Yacht

A super stylish, town-centre hotel with views over the marina and café tables on a popular square. Enjoy the ambience of a luxury yacht without the seasickness. Superb food, tranquil spa and one of the most lively drinking dens in St Helier round off the offering.
