Imagine views of cliff, sea and sky at every moment, light airy spaces designed to connect you to the outdoors. It’s hard to describe the unique atmosphere of the Scarlet. Think of being cared for like you would be in the house of a friend, of many spaces to unwind, from meadow gardens to cliff top hot tubs, an Ayurvedic inspired spa, relaxation lounges, fireside, poolside.

I left the Scarlet with the sense of lightness and calm I’d craved.

Sarah Royce-Greensill, Telegraph

The Scarlet is so laid-back, it feels like a private members' club, but fun rather than fashionably knowing.

Helen Pickles, Conde Naste Traveller
