A striking sculpture of a clipper ship in full sail has created a grand entrance at St Pierre Park Hotel and Golf Resort

The sculpture was commissioned by Julia Hands, Chairman and Chief Executive, Hand Picked Hotels, from the Ratho Forge, based in Midlothian, Scotland. Steel sails are offset by uplighting, with glass mosaics creating a sparkling water effect. The surrounding gardens have been landscaped to complement the nautical structure.

The hotel is set in 35 acres of stunning grounds just one mile from St Peter Port, with excellent facilities for business and private events, a variety of dining options, top spa treatments and offering one of only three golf courses on the island.
