Discover the powdery white sands, clear waters and natural beauty of Karma St. Martin's in The Isles of Scilly off the Cornwall coast. Karma St. Martin's, the island's only hotel, is poised to capitalise on breathtaking panoramic coastal vistas overlooking the azure waters of the Tean Sound. Accommodation includes 27 individually appointed en-suite rooms and 3 luxurious suites. Adjoining family rooms are available on request. Guests at Karma St. Martin's can enjoy summer days dining al fresco in the resorts' sub tropical gardens or have a formal dining experience in the restaurant. Both dining options boast breathtaking sea views and are the perfect locations to capture the stunning Scillly sunset. For more active pursuits work-out in a nearby gym, play a round on the island's tennis court, and snorkel with seals off the island's crystal clear waters. Then unwind with a treatment at Karma Spa. Boat trips to nearby islands are available for fishing expeditions, viewing archaeological sites, spotting rare birds including puffin colonies and to explore some of the 500 skeleton wrecks dotted off the rocky shores.

This lovely hotel is situated in an absolutely idyllic spot on St Martins in the Isles of Scilly. Words can't do justice to the stunning views from the hotel garden, the sky, the sea, the sunsets. My room in the hotel was clean comfortable and had everything I needed.

We've never been to the Scilly Isles before and to be honest, had absolutely no idea what to expect. We chose the Karma Hotel because it had good reviews and seemed to be dog friendly which was important for the dog as he complained about the last place! So, having just spent a

Hi moses_karibu, Thank you for your question. During your holiday at Karma St. Martin’s there will be daily boats from the island of St. Martin’s to a number of other islands, alternating between Tresco, Bryher, St. Agnes and St. Mary’s. There may also be circular boat trips available for you to visit uninhabited islands or see rural Isles of Scilly coastline, which is always fun. The Skybus plane lands into St. Mary’s airport, and from there you’ll need to get a shuttle bus to St. Mary’s quay which takes 10 minutes. From St. Mary’s quay you’ll then get a boat to St. Martin’s. Please feel very welcome to contact us directly so we can assist and give you detailed information. If you have booked a holiday at Karma St. Martin’s our fantastic reception team will ensure you’re informed of every aspect of the journey, which is very simple. Thank you again for your question, and we hope to welcome you to Karma St. Martin’s soon! Kind regards, Pippa

Hi John, Thank you very much for your question, and thank you also to JSFULHAM who has given some great advice! I’ve emailed you some detailed information about your journey to Karma St. Martin’s in the Isles of Scilly, which I hope helps with your decision to fly on the Skybus or travel on the Scillonian ferry. Both journeys are straightforward, and as mentioned although the boat times in the Isles of Scilly are tide dependent there are regular boats to St. Martin’s. We contact all of our guests to ensure they’re informed of the best boat time to St. Martin’s. Our friendly team will meet you on St. Martin’s quay, to greet you and assist with luggage. We very much look forward to welcoming you to Karma St. Martin’s in September John, you’ll find detailed information in my email to you, and please feel welcome to contact us directly if we may assist with anything before your arrival! Kind regards, Pippa

I did see dogs in the lounge/restaurant area. The good thing about the Isles of Scilly is that there is a really high level of tolerance to dogs - and most of them were very well-behaved!
