So close to the beach you could almost dive into the Atlantic from your balcony, this famously luxurious spa hotel is one of the best in the region. The spa specializes in thalassotherapy treatments, using seawater, although the full list of what’s offered may relax you just by reading it. Guestrooms are sophisticated and modern, with huge windows that open out onto amazing views of the sea (of course). The Gulfstream Restaurant serves French- and Mediterranean-influenced cooking, with fresh seafood a particular specialty. The hotel also has a pub and bistro if you’re after something simpler. Unlike some high-end spas, Inchydoney is a great option for families, with its dedicated Children’s Lounge daycare; the hotel can also arrange family-friendly activities such as kayaking, whale-watching, and cycling.
