Hotels in Mawgan Porth
A stunning seaside escape perched atop the cliffs of Cornwall, the Scarlet Hotel features a thoughtful philosophy, bold architecture, and a breathtaking location. Surrounded by National Trust-protected coastline, the Scarlet both capitalises on and harmonises with its environs, providing eco-friendly luxury and remarkable natural views in an environmentally sustainable manner. The Scarlet’s 37 individually-designed rooms are intended first and foremost to make the most of the dramatic views over the beach below. Each features a private outdoor space in the form of balcony, courtyard garden terrace, or rooftop pod. A restorative hotel spa serves as a quiet, almost spiritual sanctuary for relaxation. There is a room full of tented, lantern-lit and cocoon-like hanging pods. The spa includes a sauna, Hammam, meditation room, natural reed-filtered pool, and two log-fired seaweed hot tubs perfect for outdoor stargazing at the cliff’s edge. The Scarlet restaurant is headed by Michelin award-winning local chef Ben Tunnicliffe, whose hearty dishes are surprising without being pretentious. Menus change daily to take full advantage of seasonal local ingredients at their best, and a comprehensive wine list features daily selections to complement Tunnicliffe’s magnificent creations. A low-key deli menu and Cornish afternoon tea can be served anywhere throughout the premises for an in-between snack.
