On St. Martin's, one of five inhabited islands in the Isles of Scilly, Karma offers a stunning beachside retreat and utter tranquility in a sub-tropical haven, with its own private quay and breathtaking views of the neighbouring islands. Enjoy laidback luxury, with a backdrop of white sands, turquoise waters and an abundance of wildlife. Set as a hamlet of cottages - designed to blend into the natural environment - a stone's throw away from the beach, the hotel offers panoramic views over the waters of uninhabited Tean and popular Tresco Island. Karma also boasts waterside dining and a spa treatment room, with plenty of outdoor seating to take in the stunning views.



It's incredible to walk the perimeter of the island by foot, stopping for a picnic at Perpitch Beach, and take in the breathtaking views from the Daymark.

Karma is on the seafront in St. Martin's, a half-hour walk from the shops and cafes in the centre, and an ideal base for exploring the other islands.

We love the pared-back elegance and simplicity of style, allowing the sublime island vistas to remain prime focus. It's worth upgrading to the light-filled honeymoon suite with its 360-degree island views, and perfectly positioned balcony.

Deluxe, Ocean View, Superior Ocean View, Riviera Suite, Honeymoon Suite
Facilities include: ensuite bathroom, luxury bathrobes and toiletries, freshly ground Cornish coffee, LCD TV, mini-bar, safe

Food & Drink

We love that the island's heritage of foraging and gathering is evident, with vegetables sourced from the gardens, blooms from the flower farm and Becky's Scilly cakes for afternoon tea. Choose the sea-to-fork Megrim sole with seared scallops for a crowd-pleasing dish, and we'd return for the St.Martin's fish and chips in a heartbeat.

Cloudesley Shovell Restaurant: 2 AA Rosettes, locally sourced produce, seafood, fine dining. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Mains from £21.95.
