    Our rooms

    • Stay at Watergate Bay

      Take in the sea views from the 25-metre pool. Find some time to yourself while the children have a surf lesson. Relax after a beach walk in one of our dog-friendly rooms. Stride out onto the coast path, sink back with a cocktail, and as the sun begins to set, gather around the table at one of our three restaurants. All the rooms have been designed to provide perfect beach living. Some have sea views and some are family suites. They are all relaxed with barefoot comfort, fresh, coastal colours and all the right technology. The stunning oceanside location makes it easy to completely unwind and enjoy your holiday. An amazing, contemporary destination for everyone.
