The detail

Perfectly positioned on its own private island in South Devon, Burgh Island Hotel manages to keep the glamour of a by-gone era as fresh today as it was back in the 1930’s. Guests are treated to immaculate service, exquisite dining experiences and the most gorgeous panoramic sea views. Accessible by foot or Land Rover at low tide or by a 50-year-old sea tractor at high tide - it’s a hotel that delivers big on exclusivity. It offers an idyllic retreat and some serious indulgence for that truly special occasion.

The 25 rooms and suites are all in-keeping with their beautiful art deco origins, with many of the rooms being named after famous guests that have stayed here - from Agatha Christie to Noel Coward and Amy Johnson. Perfectly styled suites offer up separate lounge areas, balconies, terraces or shared sun-decks, whilst Grand Suites have larger parlours and dining areas. The Tony & B Suite is one of the top suites with its fabulous ground floor terrace and spectacular sea views. There are also beautiful doubles/twin rooms or cosy doubles - perfect for a shorter stay.

All rooms and suites are elegantly styled with lavish wallpapers, sumptuous textiles and plenty of 1930’s design flourishes. There are beautifully decadent touches with locally made fudge and water, fresh fruit and Burgh-island bespoke toiletries in all rooms. And in the morning you are treated to freshly made tea or coffee brought to your room.

Situated away from the hotel, The Beach House is a separate suite that sleeps up to six. Built as a writer’s retreat for Agatha Christie - it was evidently a success with her writing two of her books here. This gorgeous suite is perfection with panoramic sea views, a private sun deck, outdoor hot tub and a lounge with wood burner. And the relaxed coastal interiors are sublime.

The Artist’s Studio is based above the only pub on the island, The Pilchard Inn and is an open-plan dog friendly room. With antique styling and stunning sea views, it’s a delightful retreat.

For entertainment, the hotel has plenty of options. Formal black tie dinners are available in the Grand Ballroom whilst more relaxed dining is available at The Nettlefold or The Pilchard Inn. If you are in need of an afternoon tea or pre-dinner cocktails then the stunning Palm Court Lounge with its breathtaking glass dome roof is the perfect solution. Everything here is done with flair and finesse, so you won’t be disappointed.

The hotel’s location means it is a fabulous place to explore with its own private tidal seawater mermaid pool, croquet lawn and tennis court. And the short hop back to the mainland also delivers, with paddle board hire and surf lessons for the more active or quaint coves and the beautiful seaside town of Salcombe for those taking things a little more easy.
