Restaurant and Spa

The restaurant menus are simple yet bursting with flavour, changing daily to ensure that full use is made of what is at its local, seasonal best, whilst remaining reasonably priced. Breakfast and lunch are relaxed and served in the restaurant or the terrace. For dinner a shot of glamour is added to both the menu and the atmosphere, ensuring a memorable evening whether a romantic dinner à deux, or a long-overdue catch up with friends.

A spa with only the sound of the calming, crashing waves down below. Sauna, steam room, pool use and wellbeing classes included for all guests at Scarlet. An eco spa amongst the rugged coastline - the simple, powerful wellbeing that comes from being amongst nature. Scarlet Spa’s an eco spa featuring a bromine-filtered indoor pool, outdoor natural reed pool, clifftop cedar wood sauna, restorative steam room and wide views of the blue Atlantic. Treatments take place in tented, lantern-lit rooms and include stillness afterwards in the deep relaxation room’s suspended cocoon pods.

Treatments that restore your natural balance. Take a few slower breaths and return to your own way of being. Our treatment philosophy is inspired by Ayurveda, an Indian holistic health system that helps each of us arrive at a more complete self-understanding. Treatments can include a personal Ayurvedic consultation with a Scarlet therapist, uncovering your natural constitution to make your treatment truly unique to you.

The richness of natural living - a quiet place to be amongst nature’s endless beauty. Close to the dramatic clifftops, each of Scarlet’s rooms stares into the gentle blue.
