Coronavirus (COVID-19) Latest Information

During these uncertain times caused by the rapid spread of the coronavirus, and on behalf of The Bella Team, I want to reassure guests and customers of our firm commitment to you.

We know that all companies and markets have been affected by the current situation. Travel and supplies to and from the Islands are now also being effected.

The health and safety of all guest and staff is most paramount.

The hotel has been closed for the winter season, and we have liaised with all our staff both overseas and locally, and for their safety and that of our customers we have decided to review our re-opening for the summer season:

We will now re-open May the 1st 2020 and not April 1st as previously planned.  We will continue to review and post updates on our website and social media accounts as they arise.

All existing reservations and bookings for April will be contacted ASAP to make alternative arrangements. 

All future hotel and restaurant bookings, and general queries should be directed through:  [email protected] / 01481 238764

For-A-Gin’: Wild Gin and Dinner Foraging Experience


On Friday April 19th and Friday April 26th, we’ll be going wild at the Bella Luce as we spend an evening “off the eaten path” learning about the amazing ingredients that grow wild in the hedgerows and shorelines of St Martins.

From 4.30pm Luke Wheadon of Wheadon’s Gin and the Bella’s Head Chef Patricio Filipe will lead guests on a foraging trip around the lanes of St martins and down to the wild and rocky shoreline at Moulin Huet Bay.  They’ll share their knowledge of wild edibles and discuss how different plants can be used in both cooking and as botanicals in the production of gin.  Before heading back to the Bella guests will collect ingredients to be featured in their dinner that evening.

Back at the Bella, in our small batch distillery, guests will enjoy a 30-minute gin tasting session learning more about how we use locally foraged flavours in Wheadon’s Gin.  Dinner will be a three course affair prepared by Patricio and his team, featuring some of the wild ingredients collected just a couple of hours previously within walking distance of your table.

Tickets for the event cost £55 per person, and can be booked directly by calling the Bella’s front desk on +44 (0)1481 238764.  Booking is essential.  Please wear stout footwear and clothing appropriate for the weather forecast.

If you'd like to include an overnight stay, then why not make the most of our current Super Early Bird Offer and enjoy a 20% discount on your stay, as well as a complimentary Wheadon's Gin souvenir pack.
