Indulge in an Ayurvedic escape with the Scarlet Hotel

For those partial to a staycation, the Scarlet Hotel, an eco-inspired sanctuary nestled on the clifftops of Cornwall’s Mawgan Porth, has launched four new wellbeing journeys inspired by Ayurvedic wellness principles. 

Each journey focuses on balance and rejuvenation, drawing from ancient practices to promote deep relaxation and healing. 

With four new wellness packages to choose from, guests will be treated to a programme of whole-body therapies and rejuvenating treatments, complete with the Scarlet’s nourishing seasonally inspired cuisine and sea-view accommodation. 

Our favourite, the four-night Restoring Ayurveda package is designed to support guests in finding complete natural balance and rejuvenation.  Following an initial consultation with an Ayurvedic specialist, guests will be provided with a bespoke programme of treatments unique to their wellbeing needs and doshas (energy in the body).

The package also includes a four-hour Solo or Couples Journey: a tension-releasing bathing treatment, a therapeutic massage in a tented treatment room, and time to simply reflect and enjoy the surrounding natural beauty, paired with plenty of foodie opportunities. 

All programmes include full access to the Scarlet Spa facilities including an indoor bromine-filtered pool; outdoor natural reed pool; restorative steam room; retreat terrace and lounge; cliffside gardens; and comprehensive wellbeing programme, featuring yoga and guided meditation sessions, curated to nurture both mind and body.

Four-night Restoring Ayurveda starts from £1,980 for two people sharing a Just Right Room.
