The Atlantic Hotel, overlooking St Ouen's Bay and the Atlantic Ocean beyond
From the hotel's website
On 7 May 1970 the Jersey Evening Post announced the arrival of 'a new luxury hotel on the most magnificent site in the Channel Islands' bringing to fruition Henry Burke's vision of a luxury hotel in a stunning location. A graduate of the Swiss hotel school in Lausanne, Henry's involvement with the Jersey Hotel and Guest House Association as its President led to his belief in the island as a tourist destination and his commitment to establishing a new hotel of the highest quality.
Henry's son Patrick returned to Jersey in 1985 to join the family business and succeeded his father as managing director in 1987. Embarking on an initial five-year development programme, Patrick's first project was to expand the hotel by adding garden studios, luxury suites and a new health club. Since then, and with the support of his wife Treena, a native islander, he has worked tirelessly to secure its position as one of Jersey's finest hotels.
A series of further major investments has continued the complete refurbishment of every area of the property to high international standards. The appointment of London based architects Manser Associates working with Interior Designer Julian Reed saw the remodelling of the main building and guestrooms at the turn of the millennium, introducing a crisper, cleaner feel reminiscent of 1930's marine architecture – a style which has become a classic icon for comfort and luxury.
