It's difficult to sum up in a few words just how special this retreat is. The only way I can convey its true feeling is to imagine you're going to stay with your very best friends mum. The welcome is warm, the attentiveness is spot on without being intrusive, nothing is too much trouble for the staff, the rooms are...

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. I felt safe and secure and the service at all times was low key but diligent. My room perfect in everyway and my balcony and view breathtaking. This...

Well - what can I say? This is not our first stay - but it just gets better and better. From the very first warm welcome - we were made to feel as if we were coming home - to the cheery farewell, we were looked after so very well. Faultless in every way and so very enjoyable. Accommodation superb...

And it certainly is a retreat...you'll be hard pushed to find a phone signal anywhere round here! The place is great, though straying to show a few signs of its age, in its style and upkeep. Not that it looks in anyway unkept or messy, it certainly doesn't. It's beautifully clean at all times. There is nothing that's too much...

Have you ever been on a trip when your eyes fill with tears when you leave, not because you've had a bad experience, but because you are already pining for what you have left behind. If I was to draw what I would classify as hotel heaven, The Scarlet would be it. It's been on our hotel list for a...

We have wanted to visit this hotel and spa for some time now, based on its excellent reputation. We were not disappointed! Every detail of the building and the fixtures has been carefully thought through. Everywhere you sense light and space, and a sense of quiet luxury. The spa in particular is just awesome--a beautiful indoor pool, superb treatments, a...

We are a married couple in our 70s and this was our second visit. This time, we booked a Spacious King room on the top floor with a balcony overlooking the bay. The view was magnificent and the balcony would have been a wonderful facility in a warmer month. The room was large with all the facilities we could possibly...

Our 4th visit this year for our anniversary and as good as ever. You can't beat the location of this hotel; I will never tire of the view over the bay. As always - an amazing, relaxing stay. Fantastic rooms, service and meals in the restaurant. We will be back again next year :)

This hotel is breathtaking. Amazing views, very dog friendly, modern and clean. There are nice touches such as the lighting system and the bed linen quality. The staff are lovely and very helpful.
