The Scarlet is an adult-only boutique hotel with a difference. Not content with providing a luxurious retreat for those visiting the Cornish coast, they have ensured that they are as eco-friendly as possible, from the materials used for construction down to the natural plants used to filter the outdoor swimming pool. The roof is insulated with sea thrift and blends with the coastal landscape, and every detail has been designed to be in harmony with the beautiful natural surroundings. With a restaurant using only the finest locally sourced ingredients, a spa using organic seaweeds & other natural treats & beautiful ocean views, guests can take a deep breath of the fresh sea air and truly relax.
If the fresh sea air and luxurious rooms aren't enough, a day in The Scarlet spa will blow away the last of those cobwebs. With an indoor swimming pool, aroma steam room and a relaxation room overlooking the naturally-filtered outdoor pool & sea, guests can sit back and relax or take a treatment in the Hammam, Rasul or couples suite which has a double bath. The deep relaxation space has hanging pods filled with cushions to drift off in after an Ayurvedic experience or mud treatment. There are also 2 outdoor log-fired seaweed baths/hot tubs for a romantic soak by the ocean.
Cornwall's famous coastline and cliffs are great for walks and hikes or just simply while away the day on the sandy beach.
With Michelin starred chef, Ben Tunnicliffe at the helm, the food at The Scarlet's restaurant is sure to please. The menu is led by the fresh local produce that is available and the simple & flavoursome menu therefore changes daily. Breakfast & lunch are informal and fun, while at dinner the menu & ambience is intimate and cosy. There is a good wine list served by the bottle or glass. A room service menu is available with deli dishes and an unmissable Cornish afternoon tea.
The Scarlet has been designed to avoid the long corridors of conventional luxury hotels, instead creating pockets of rooms, curved around small gardens, terraces and viewing pods from which to watch the ocean views. All 37 rooms have king-size beds, large windows and their own private space outdoors from balconies to private courtyard terraces. Contemporary fixtures & furnishing have been thoughtfully selected; the curved garden furniture echos the frontage of the hotel and the light colour palette and wooden flooring inside blends well with the stylish materials & lighting. There are 5 room categories, Just Right, Generous, Unique, Spacious and Indulgent, which increase in size. All bathrooms have Tri Dosha toiletries, using an Ayurvedic blend of herbs, and baths and / or showers and Spacious rooms have freestanding tubs and the bedrooms have flatscreen TVs & DVD players.
The majority of our rooms are ‘just right’, with spectacular ocean views and an element of outside space via a balcony or direct access to the gardens. Most of these rooms have a bath and shower. One or two have shower only
We have six generous rooms, four of which are on the Middle Floor level, one on the Cloister Garden level and one on the Coastal Garden level. The seating areas each feature a sofa and of course the obligatory ocean view. Two have been designed for disabled access and one of these can interconnect with the room next door to allow for a carer/companion.
Four unique rooms are accessed via the cloister garden. Each has its own private gem garden influenced by some of the great Cornish Gardens. Whilst the bedrooms open out into their individual gardens each has a roof top lounge or pod accessed via a spiral staircase. There is a beautiful sea view which can be enjoyed from the roof top lounge.
A little larger than our generous rooms, we have five of these - four on the top floor and one on the sea thrift level. Each features a more spacious sitting area and of course the obligatory ocean view. Each has a balcony and freestanding bath.
Arguably the most indulgent rooms at the Scarlet! We have four of these rooms: two at the top, one in the middle and one at the sea thrift level. Each has outside space in the shape of a balcony, courtyard or a substantial terrace. Some of these rooms are arranged around a sumptuous circular central seating area.
