Karma St. Martin’s, St. Martin’s island, Isles of Scilly, England

A luxury hotel in the Isles of Scilly with a prime beachfront location

A stone’s throw from the beach and a world apart from everyday life, Karma St. Martin’s is a luxurious island retreat located in the stunning Isles of Scilly, one of the UK’s most precious hidden gems.

Laying just off the Cornish Coast and nestled alongside the warm Gulf Stream waters of the Atlantic, the Isles of Scilly offer a diverse natural beauty quite unlike any other place on earth. Known for its temperate climate, a wealth of wildlife above and below the waves and miles of pristine beaches, the Isles of Scilly will change every pre-conceived idea you have about what a beachside holiday in the UK can deliver.

Blending luxury and comfort with breathtaking and uninterrupted views of the neighbouring isles, Karma St. Martin’s perches just metres from a beach with pure turquoise waters. Step off the island boat onto our own private quay; you’ve arrived, and we couldn’t be happier to welcome you.

How to get to Karma St. Martin’s

Make your way to St. Mary’s – the largest island in the Isles of Scilly. Sail from Penzance on the Scillonian ferry – along the way you may see dolphins or basking sharks. For a bird’s eye view, fly on a Skybus from Newquay, Exeter or Land’s End. For a Rockstar trip of a lifetime, launch off in an Island Helicopter service from Land’s End in Cornwall.

Connections from London via Gatwick to Newquay are available on with Flybe, and First Great Western trains run from London Paddington to Penzance. Sleeper cabins are available for late-night departures from London and you’ll alight in Penzance with plenty of time to catch the Scillonian ferry’s morning departure.

By sea or air, all arrive in St. Mary’s island, where you’ll catch a boat to St. Martin’s. Our friendly team meet all guests on Lower Town or Higher Town Quay (tide dependent) and will assist with your luggage. Read more about travelling to Karma St. Martin’s here.
