Bella Luce staff will also be pleased to arrange a yacht or boat charter to explore the island’s shores, or to arrange a trip on the Island Rib, skimming at speed over the waters in an inflatable.Dry land activities include walking – the island has spectacular cliff-top paths – golfing on one of three courses or getting the wind in your hair on a cycle. There’s also plenty of tax free shopping in St Peter Port.
The Bella Spa is just the place to unwind, restore and reinvigorate. Resident therapists are on hand with a varied treatment menu, and half or full day spa programmes are available. Yoga and Pilates sessions can be easily arranged. There are plenty of treatments for the guys, too – whether facials or back rubs.
