With busy work and family lives, it is easy to forget to give time and space to each other. The Scarlet was designed as a grown ups only escape, a place to spend time together very simply, sharing laughter and watching the sea.  We also wanted to prove that an environmentally sensitive hotel can feel deeply luxurious and restorative.

The Scarlet: Sustainable luxury

Both the interior and exterior design of the Scarlet embraces the building’s stunning cliff top location and reflects its natural environment through the sensuous use of materials and design. The hotel offers you all kinds of relaxing diversions including outdoor cliff top hot tubs, a natural reed-filtered swimming pool and an Ayurvedic-inspired spa – all with far-reaching views over the beach and sea beyond.

The Scarlet is Cornwall’s ideal escape for adults who want to recharge their batteries, reconnect with each other and get away from the everyday. The atmosphere within the hotel is restorative and calm, our staff are warm, welcoming and will do everything to make sure that you, as an individual, have everything you need for a perfect stay with us.

Day-to-day, the Scarlet does everything it can to minimise its impact on the environment with the thoughtful employment of a biomass boiler, grey water recycling, rain water harvesting and sea thrift-planted roofs. We are very proud of the hotel that we have built, and the painstaking efforts we have made to protect and harmonise with our environment. We like to think that we put our money where our mouth is and lead by example, showing that great design can go hand-in-hand with sustainability. Your holiday in Cornwall can be luxurious and rejuvenating, as well as gentle and caring to our beautiful environment at the same time.

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

Scarlet's architecture blurs the boundaries between outside and in, bringing relentless sea views and light filled rooms.

Lonely Planet Traveller

There’s a lot to love about this place at Mawgan Porth: its extravagant use of space, the floor-to-ceiling views of the Atlantic, cutting-edge design, eye-catching fabrics and seasonal menus.
