Our landlord, His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, gave permission for St. Martin's on the Isle to be built in 1987 and the hotel was subsequently opened in May 1989. As you can imagine, building on such an environmentally sensorial island surrounded by a marine park required a great deal of sensitivity both in the choice of location and the choice of materials. The resulting hotel, nestling into the hillside and built to resemble a cluster of granite cottages, has received much acclaim and is now accepted as a part of the landscape. The hotel, the only one on the island of St. Martin's, faces west overlooking mature gardens, it's own quay, white sandy beaches and clear blue sea, with uninhabited islands as a backdrop framed by magnificent sunsets in the evening.
