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.

Sunday Times Ultimate British Hotels

Hanging over the exquisitely secluded beach of Mawgan Porth, The Scarlet introduces cutting edge architecture, contemporary design, colour, art and a second to none spa to one of the most captivating locations in Cornwall.
