The Scarlet is an adult-only boutique hotel in Cornwall, which is architecturally designed to harmonise with the beautiful coastal surroundings. With stunning sea views and a dedication to sustainability, this Chic Retreat is the perfect place to unwind and reconnect with nature.

Determined to prove that sustainability does not restrict luxury, The Scarlet has ensured that they are as eco-friendly as possible. Natural materials were used in the construction of the building, and the outdoor pool is filtered using natural plants. The roof is insulated with sea thrift and blends with the coastal landscape. 

The spa uses natural and organic products, with wonderful artisan skincare partners to create their own style of therapies, with the focus on touch and intention delivering beautiful results.

This Chic Retreat has wheelchair access.


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. The spa encourages wellbeing in eco-luxury surroundings, with space and therapies for all. It has an indoor swimming pool, aroma steam room and a relaxation room, which overlook the pool and sea. To top it off, the outdoor pool is reed-filtered, meaning that you can enjoy your swim without harming the environment.

Warm your muscles indoors in the giant copper tub, rhassoul, hammam and steam room. Venture onto the cliff top for a barrel sauna or hot tub, while gazing at the panoramic coastal views. Doze in the deep relaxation space, which has hanging pods filled with cushions.

There are also 2 outdoor log-fired seaweed baths/hot tubs for a romantic soak by the ocean. Expert therapists combine the ancient art of Ayurveda with holistic therapies to give you a bespoke treatment every time. There are also a range of wellness classes, including yoga, to choose from.

The Scarlet is perched on the cliff top at Mawgan Port and with a beautiful sandy beach on its door step it is ideal for long coastal walks and hikes.


Executive Chef, Tom Hunter, has a deep passion for technical detail and perfection. He insists on using only the best, freshest and most seasonal local ingredients.

Breakfast and lunch are informal and fun, while dinner has an intimate and cosy ambience. Given its eco-friendly ethos, the restaurant offers plenty of exciting vegetarian dishes alongside tasty meat options. There is an excellent wine list, served by the bottle or glass.

For those who enjoy their cakes and sandwiches, we highly recommend the Champagne Afternoon Tea. The cakes are divine, and it is served with brilliant champagne. Room service can be enjoyed anytime.

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 admire 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 & furnishings have been thoughtfully selected; the curved garden furniture echoes 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 Oula toiletries, their own blend of essential oils chosen for their restorative and relaxing qualities.
