Good Hotel Guide Review
Serenity and space are the two words that crop up most in the wealth of praise we receive for this ‘utterly relaxing’ adults-only spa hotel with sublime views over beach and sea. ‘It never feels crowded’, so ‘you can really relax’, say guests, particularly with ‘the sight and sound of the sea everywhere’. Bedrooms, with their light, Scandi styling of stripped-wood floors and floor-to-ceiling windows, have superb coastal views, all with outside space, whether terrace, balcony or courtyard garden. Readers had a ‘Just Right’ room and everything was ‘just right, from the exquisite natural pool to the lobster rolls at lunch’. ‘High-class’ facilities include an art-filled library, relaxation terrace, an indoor as well as outdoor pool and Ayurvedic spa. The cliff-top hot tubs are ‘a marvellous treat as the sun starts to descend’. There is a ‘good and varied dinner menu’ with inventive dishes such as lemongrass prawns followed by duck with blueberries and shiitake mushrooms, and ‘excellent risotto’. Staff are ‘discreet’ but ‘attentive when you need them’. ‘Five stars is not enough for this hotel.’ (Tessa Stuart, and many more)
