My husband and I booked a spa break for ourselves to celebrate his birthday, and to de-stress and treat ourselves before Christmas. We own a Tesla, and due to the Scarlet's charging facilities, the hotel had been recommended by the Tesla community. On arrival, there is no desk, so we were greeted by a friendly staff member offering tea and...

Stayed here before when it first opened. Have always wanted to return for the NewYear break. This year they let you only come for 3 nights rather than 4 which was ideal! Despite taking 12 hours to get down there as flights fog bound; the rewards were enormous. Everything was designed as I would have in a dream hotel Food...

We have just returned from a New Years Eve break at The Scarlet and words will not do justice as to how great an experience we had.

Like Emma below, I returned home yesterday having spent 4 nights over Christmas at the Scarlet. My mixed emotions over what to write or even to review at all are because yet again this was such an enjoyable place to be, and I know the occupancy levels are similar to the best London hotels, that if I tell you, you...

Just got back from spending Christmas at The Scarlet. Clearly I loved it but thought I would give some details whilst it's fresh in my mind as I do find other people's reviews useful.

Have looked at The Scarlet over the years since it opened but always stuck with our family and couple (kids grown up) favourite hotel down the road at Watergate Bay.

Having considered staying at the Scarlet I am really glad that we decided to stay somewhere else. My husband and I decided to visit the Scarlet after visiting the nearby beach.

Thank you for sharing your experience, I was so saddened to hear of what happened whilst you were with us.

We were booked on the sunset spa and dine. We then decided to stay the night. The general feel In The hotel is one of relaxation, the room was comfortable but not exceptional, getting rid of the wall for the bathroom makes the room feel bigger, but I'm not a lover of the toilet being in the bedroom.

Amazing Stay. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel and spa without hesitation and cannot wait to return. The Ayurvedic consultation and the Spa Journey was for me a new and impressive experience.
