Emulating the coastal surrounds, a palette of soft blue, grey and white hues complements interiors made from locally sourced timber - creating a contemporary-coastal style. In the beachside restaurant, the ocean views provide the ultimate setting for a Cornish escape.
Hotel guests have complimentary access to the rejuvenating spa and gym facilities, home to a vitality pool, steam room, sauna, hot tub and nine treatment rooms including a couple's room.
