The Scarlet Spa
Our spa is your haven.
With its luxury tented treatment rooms lit by lanterns and its far-reaching views over Mawgan Porth Beach to the wild Atlantic beyond, the Scarlet Spa is essentially a quiet, contemplative, almost spiritual place.
Our spa is a little different to others you might have visited. Our focus is your holistic wellbeing and the nourishment of your mind, body and soul. We do this by drawing on the wisdom of Ayurveda and adding our own, distinctive Cornish twist.
You might want to slather yourself in rich mineral mud in our rhassoul, experience a traditional bathing ritual in the hammam, or try your hand at massage guided by one of our therapists. Outside, a cliff top hot tub invites you to stargaze or storm watch, and our natural chemical-free pool, cleaned by reeds, beckons you into the water.
Our stunning Relaxation Room has cocoon-like pods swinging from the ceiling where you can drift away following your treatment and really absorb its benefits.
Eco has never felt so good.
The Scarlet Spa is open to day guests, who can book a use of the indoor and outdoor pools and steam room and spa treatments. Hotel residents can enjoy our pools and steam room for free as part of their stay.
We also offer complimentary yoga classes to guests and day spa visitors.

Ayurveda is understood to have originated more than 4000 years ago and is believed to be the oldest health system still in use today. Rather than treating symptoms, it treats the whole person, working holistically to identify and redress imbalances at an emotional, physiological and spiritual level.
All our Scarlet Journeys start with a consultation with a Tri-Dosha qualified practitioner and include an ayurvedic diagnosis to determine your body type, known in Sanskrit as your dosha. There are three types of dosha – vata, pitta, and kapha. These identify and assess your body’s individual combination of vital energies and it is the balance (and imbalance) of these energies that guides our therapists to create the most appropriate treatment for you.
