Mawgan Porth, Near Newquay
Now the Scarlet makes the most of its sea and sunset views with its position on the Cornish cliff tops. With romantic and dramatic sea views like this it makes the ideal hotel for honeymooners and couples. The Scarlet is an adult only hotel and offers its guests tranquil and relaxing surroundings to unwind and enjoy the scenery. The Scarlets Spa specialises in Ayurvedic ‘journeys’, with tented treatment rooms and pods suspended in the dark for ‘deep relaxation’ and an all-glass sea facing roof for ‘light relaxation’. The reed-fringed, rock-strewn outdoor pool extends from the indoor one, punctuated by two bright scarlet wood-fired hot tubs perched between boulders overlooking the sea. It really is the perfect destination for disconnecting from the stresses of everyday life.
