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 :)

My partner and I are both teachers and have 4 children ranging from 2 to 15. So to say we are stressed and exhausted most of the time is an understatement. I booked a room at Scarlet for one night as a surprise for his birthday. I also booked two treatments, one massage each and a shared Rassoul. The whole...

Wow it sounds like you had a wonderful, very much needed break away! Thank you for sharing such a lovely review.
