The Scarlet is a cool luxury eco hotel in Bedruthen, Cornwall near Newquay built to the highest eco standards, boasting delicious locally sourced food and the best Ayurvedic spa you can imagine. The Scarlet hotel is a balance of light, airy spaces with cosy, private areas, allowing you to mix with other guests or enjoy a bit of peace and solitude.
There are 37 rooms with 5 hotel room categories – each room is slightly different. All feature stunning sea views and individual contemporary design with their own outdoor space in the form of a terrace or walled garden.
Tiny rainbow tiles made the oval bath and rain shower shimmer like water – both stand open in the room and there is no curtain to draw for your modesty.
You can, however, always ask your partner to retreat to what was surely is our favourite feature – a secret room at the top of a spiral staircase. Just an enormous beanbag and a big window looking out to the sea.
The Food…The Restaurant
The menu has been created by Michelin star-winning local Ben Tunnicliffe and, unlike many hotel dining experiences, the evening meal feels like a real night out. Ceviche of wild halibut and line-caught sea bass with guacamole and red onion was followed by roast monkfish tail and lobster risotto.
Breakfast is prepared with fresh Cornwall ingredients served in generous portions – sweet seasonal fruit salad, gorgeous homemade jam or a full English with local sausages.
