Dog-Friendly Destination: Isles of Scilly

Taking the dog with you on holiday shouldn't mean being cooped up in a caravan park or a bare-boned B&B. Karma St Martin's hotel in the Cornish Isles of Scilly extends a warm welcome to its canine clientele. Karma's stunning natural setting, creature comforts, and tranquil surroundings will leave you and your furry friend feeling like 'Top-Dog'.Step inside and it's revealed as a luxurious contemporary hotel featuring 4 Standard Rooms, 24 Ocean Rooms, 2 Superior Ocean Rooms, 2 Family Suites, a Honeymoon Suite and a soulful Karma Spa.


Even travelling with your four-legged friend is a breeze....Karma's knowledgeable front office team is on hand to guide and advise you on the two transport options.  Whether your loveable pooch is a wannabe Scillonian sea-dog or a jet-setter; Karma's team will explain each mode of transport in detail and check availability of the RSPCA approved animal boxes on the SkyBus airplanes.

From the moment your furry companion arrives at the hotel, they will be welcomed with a VIP (Very Important Pet) registration form, a welcome treat, bowls, blankets and a canine-friendly menu. The pet-loving Karma team can provide dog-sitting services whilst you are free to enjoy a spa treatment or make friends with the local seal colony on a snorkeling trip. 


Unlike the main beaches on St. Mary's, the beaches on St. Martin's are dog-friendly all year round. Soak up the fresh sea-scented air whilst your dog enjoys the feel of soft powdery white sand under his paws. The unpolluted waters are ideal for a spot of doggy-paddle and the hotel provides complimentary towels for mucky pups to freshen up after a long day outdoors.

For peace of mind, there is also a caring Vet Support Group on the Islands. With the help of supporters and extensive fundraising, a brand new purpose built surgery (consisting of consultation room, X-ray room and operating theatre with living accommodation for the incumbent vet) was completed in December 2010.


For all these reasons it's not surprising that Karma St. Martin's has recently been announced as a finalist for Best Dog-Friendly Business at The Cornwall Tourism Awards 2016.
