Burgh Island Hotel, a majestic Art Deco masterpiece perched on a secluded island off the South Devon coast, beckons with a symphony of luxurious rooms and suites. Sea view hotels simply do not get much more magical than this. 

Each of the rooms is a meticulously designed haven, whispering tales of bygone eras and promising unforgettable coastal respites. The rooms include:

The Suites are each uniquely decorated and adorned with the name of a previous famous guest. Bathed in natural light and adorned with elegant furnishings, these cosy escapes offer a delightful respite. Wake up to the gentle caress of the sea breeze and lull yourself to sleep with the rhythmic symphony of waves. Most Classic Double rooms boast enchanting sea views, inviting you to soak in the endless expanse of the ocean.

Luxe Double Rooms are another beautiful room choice. Gorgeous, spacious sanctuaries, where panoramic sea vistas steal the show. Unwind in plush armchairs, indulge in a luxurious soak in the bath, and let the ever-changing hues of the ocean mesmerise you, while the Art Deco furnishings provide a glimpse into a bygone era. Sip on something delicious and fall back adoringly onto the plush bed.

For a truly spectacular escape at one of the best hotels with a sea view, treat yourself to a stay in the Grand Suites.

Expect a double or super king bed, plush bathrobes and towels, charming furnishings, a balcony to take in the views and access to your own island paradise. 

Additionally, the Artist’s Studio provides a serene and unique escape on the island. An open-plan dog-friendly escape above the famous Pilchard Inn. The previous writing retreat of none other than Agatha Christie now offers gorgeous views and the perfect reprise of everyday life with elegant views of the sea.

If the weather is fair, bask in the sunshine by the Mermaid Pool, a unique outdoor seawater pool offering a refreshing dip with stunning sea views. For the ultimate indulgence, enjoy a relaxing wellness treatment and sit back and relax during your island escape. If you prefer to be out and about, challenge yourself on the tennis court with a singles or doubles match.

If you’re a true beach bum, explore the island’s hidden coves and dip your toes in the sea.
