With a sublime setting on the English Riviera, Cary Arms & Spa in Babbacombe Bay, Devon, is one of the finest luxury hotels in Torquay.

Looking down onto the turquoise bay, this coastal spa hotel in Devon has lots to shout about. Where else could you find a luxury spa on the beach, exclusive beach huts and an idyllic backdrop that would inspire artists – not to mention a high-class restaurant that has seasoned foodies talking?

Each season, nature takes its course and casts a unique outlook on the scenery. In spring and summer, the foliage comes alive with colour and the sun reflects on the azure waters. Winter calls for crisp walks on the beach and romantic evenings by the open fire. Whatever time of year, romance is in the air.

Sitting in a row like oversized bird houses you’d find in a pretty country garden, the Beach Huts at Cary Arms are filled with boutique charm and seaside loveliness. The huts have panoramic bi-fold windows and sun decks with phenomenal views from the water’s edge, and are enveloped by tropical gardens.

These are beach huts with a difference – think luxurious suites with a Mediterranean-style backdrop and you’ll be close to the mark. The hotel’s 10 bedrooms and suites are equally as gorgeous with their cool, coastal-chic design that is reminiscent of New England.

Cary Arms Spa is a pure oasis of calm designed to impress, indulge and rejuvenate. The glass spa houses a waterfall hydrotherapy pool, sauna, steam room, treatment rooms and an outdoor terrace for soaking up the sun.

Your experience at Cary Arms in Torquay doesn’t end here, you’ll also enjoy unmatched dining at the seafront restaurant and, it goes without saying, the seafood is just incredible. The vibrant flavours of the dishes and the coastal views make this one of the best places to eat in Devon.

The hotel and location are perfect for couples and families, and you can even bring your dog along – who will thank you for letting him explore the dog-friendly beaches and coastal walks.

It’s no surprise Cary Arms in Babbacombe Bay has been awarded many accolades – being included in The Times Best Places to Stay is no mean feat!
