Secluded island bliss on your doorstep

Secluded island bliss on your doorstep

You don’t have to spend a fortune on flights to experience secluded island bliss: just 30 miles off the south-west coast of England lies the picturesque Scilly Isles – five beautiful islands with white-sand beaches, glittering turquoise seas and sub-tropical gardens, all pristine and completely unspoilt.

Accessible only by boat, the isles are the epitome of remote – though not completely deserted. There are galleries, shops and restaurants a-plenty, making it the perfect place for a short break away from the hustle and smog of city life. What’s more, luxury tour operators Prestige Holidays are offering a great deal on a three-night getaway at one of the best hotel on the islands, St Martins On The Isle.

The rural retreat has been designed to look like a collection of cottages, huddling on the beachfront amid sub-tropical gardens. It boasts 30 elegantly-decorated rooms and suites, each with fantastic views out into the countryside or across the ocean, a gourmet restaurant for formal dining and a bar and bistro for a more relaxed meal-time experience. There is also a heated swimming pool to warm up in after a dip in the sea.The hotel is in a great location from which to explore the surrounding islands too: it takes just 10-minutes by boat to get to the main island St Mary’s, with its myriad of eateries, bars and boutiques.

The offer – which starts today and will end on 26 May 2010 – costs ?436.00 per person, and includes half-board accommodation at St Martins On The Isle, ferry crossings from Penzance and transfers.
