This exceptional location, bordering the vibrant sea, lets you relish in the rhythm of the waves, even while relaxing in our pool. The hotel’s extraordinary proximity to the sea and its commitment to a luxurious, balanced lifestyle is its signature charm.
A stay at Watergate Bay Hotel is an immersive journey into the heart of Cornwall’s coastal lifestyle. Our seven unique beach lofts offer floor-to-ceiling windows, private beach access, and the coveted surf-in and surf-out options. Space, style, and comfort merge in our sea-view suites, family suites, and double rooms. Each room reflects the vibrant outdoors, providing an intimate atmosphere where relaxation is a way of life.
Our culinary offerings are as diverse as they are delightful. At Zacry’s, our executive chef, Neil Haydock, presents an inventive blend of local and international flavours. The Beach Hut offers a more laid-back experience with a sustainable focus, showcasing local, seasonal produce. For seafood enthusiasts, Emily Scott Food is a must-visit, while The Living Space offers a wide-ranging food and drink menu in a casual setting.
At the Swim Club, our unique take on a spa, you can rejuvenate your senses with a swim in our infinity pool, a revitalising massage, or simply enjoy a drink from the café bar. For the more active guest, surf lessons at Wavehunters, yoga on the beach, and beachside HIIT and circuit classes provide an exhilarating blend of fitness and fun.
To complement the work-from-anywhere trend, the hotel provides quiet workspaces with stunning views, promoting a balance between productivity and leisure. Morning strolls on the beach, coffee breaks overlooking the surf, and a working lunch in The Living Space redefine your work routine. We are also proud to be a dog-friendly hotel so there is no need to leave your beloved pet at home.
