Carey Olsen partner Christopher Philpott worked on all property aspects of the acquisition and partner Guy Coltman worked on the corporate legal aspects.

Mr Philpott said: "This is a strategic expansion for Handpicked Hotels, which reinforces its position in the Channel Islands and its confidence in the tourism industry."
