On the island of Jersey, between England and France you'll find the Hotel de France – a 19th-century palace brought sharply into the 21st century by German designers Licht 01.

Licht 01 designed the hotel's new spa, created in natural stone, with glowing orbs for light, infinity pools, hot and cold plunge pools, hydrotherapy pools and a large jet pool.

By day the spa is lit by abundant natural light; by night it makes use of ambient colored lighting.

The hotel itself has 284 contemporary rooms, many of which overlook St Helier and the English Channel. Proof, if any was ever needed, that there's more to Jersey than cows with long eyelashes… RM

    My credits, and compliments to the German Archatects. My compliments again to Sir Licht. I think the hotel is absolutely incredible. Most breath taking hotel I have seen. I have traveled many places being in the navy. I also have some German ancesty in me through my Grand Parents. I think the Hotel de France is equisite.

Any comments?
