The Scarlet Hotel & Spa, Cornwall
This eco-hotel is perched above one of the most beautiful beaches in northern Cornwall and lets you feel connected to the landscape before you have even stepped outside. It offers floor-to-ceiling windows with panoramic views of the bay, comfortable terraces and private balconies. We recommend trying the Saltwater Break, a three-night package which combines mineral-rich seaweed bathing and body treatments with two guided sessions on the open water along with an outdoor sauna and reed-filtered pool.
Kohler Waters Spa at the Old Course Hotel, St Andrews, Fife
The innovative bathing treatments here are truly unique, combining mood lighting with marine salts, seaweed soaks and whirlpool jets. We recommend the Sok Overflowing Bath with Massage, which begins with dry body brushing to prepare the skin for maximum absorption. Follow that with a luxurious soak in a deep bathtub with aromatic herbs, and a 50-minute deep massage. The spa also offers a steam room, hydrotherapy pool, ice fountain, cold plunge pool, Finnish sauna and a rooftop hot tub.
