The Scarlet - Cornwall, United Kingdom
Rates from £180 per night · Hip Hideaways · 37 rooms


The Scarlet is a "grown-ups only" boutique hotel, Cornwall's escape for adults and your chance to getaway and recharge your batteries. A place where adults can eat, dream and play in peace. A hip hideaway with a seriously sexy vibe.
Distinctly Cornish, we want to reflect and embrace our unique location, blurring the boundaries between indoors and out. The hotel is a balance of light, airy spaces with cosy, private areas, allowing you to mix with our other guests or enjoy a bit of peace and solitude. For us, sumptuous does not mean unsustainable, and luxury isn't necessarily a guilty pleasure.

Know Before You Go

the Scarlet features 37 rooms. All the stunning rooms open onto private gardens, balconies or terraces with stunning views out to sea. Each room has been designed to make the most of the spectacular location; the building curves in various directions making each view unique.

We provide a valet service on arrival, laundry and drying service, overnight shoe cleaning service, complimentary tea or coffee in the morning and afternoon and in-room spa treatments.

Our position on the cliff at Mawgan Porth is truly breathtaking and every room in the hotel is designed to make the most of the view over the Atlantic Ocean.

We are very proud of the hotel that we have built and the painstaking efforts that we have made to protect and harmonise with our unique environment. We like to think that we’ve put our money where our mouth is and are leading by example, showing that great design can go hand in hand with sustainability.

The Scarlet Spa aims to give you something that goes deeper than conventional treatments. We bring long term rejuvenation, not quick fixes, combining age-old proven Ayurvedic traditions with indigenous Cornish ingredients, ultimately providing a range of inspiring treatments that reach both body and soul. A world away from current beauty offerings and promises of everlasting youth, it is about wellbeing and you; embracing ageing with a smile.

The spa has tented rooms and is essentially a quiet, almost spiritual place. The relaxation area has cocoon like pods swinging gently from the ceiling where, following your treatment, you can drift away. Outside, our log fired hot tubs invite you to stargaze or storm watch. A Hammam, a Rasul, a couple’s suite for massage tuition and mud experiences, a natural pool, cleaned by reed beds and a chlorine free indoor pool complete the spa offerings.

All meals are served in the Scarlet Restaurant, although there is also an Anytime Anywhere menu which does what it says on the tin!
