Luxury White Elephant Nantucket vacations

White Elephant Nantucket

At a glance

Nantucket is a small island off the coast of Cape Cod. It’s a popular summer destination for the American elite. You can get a direct flight to Nantucket from Boston or take the ferry from Hyannis. The White Elephant is perhaps the most famous hotel in Nantucket. It’s been a destination hotel for almost a hundred years.

It’s comprised of the main hotel, two lofts and eleven cottages. It combines classic luxury with a modern twist. The restaurants and bars of Nantucket are just a short walk from the hotel. The hotel has beautifully manicured lawns overlooking the harbour. This is a great choice for a peaceful luxury getaway in the summer months. You can combine it with a stay in Boston and experience the buzz of a big city too.

Whilst LGBTQ+ rights vary from state to state in the USA, there are nationwide laws that protect members of the community from discrimination. Same-sex couples can also marry in the USA, and social attitudes are generally tolerant.


The hotel has 66 guestrooms and suites. All come with a king bed or two twin beds, an outdoor patio overlooking the garden and fine Italian linens. Some rooms come with direct harbour views – you’ll wake up each morning to the sound of the sea.

Food And Drink

Nantucket has an excellent food scene. The restaurants in town are a short walk from the hotel. The in-house dining options are excellent. Head to the Brand Point Grill for seafood and steak, including the signature, Lobster Bloody Mary. The wine list is excellent, as is the waterfront setting.

"The thing about the USA is that it's just so diverse. It doesn't matter what you're looking for, you can find it in the USA. I personally love San Francisco because it's hotels are arty and luxurious at the same time."

"There's nowhere quite like New York for an ultra-lux city break. I always recommend visiting in December for the dream Christmas experience, complete with high-end shopping, Broadway shows and walks in Central Park. "
