Red Carnation Hotels

There are two crucial ingredients for a rewarding coastal holiday: luxurious accommodation and a beautiful beach. It’s a formula that Red Carnation Hotels has perfected—guests can step from sumptuous interiors directly onto golden sands at its range of thoughtfully positioned lake and seaside stays. From bright, white Floridian bays to freshwater shores in Switzerland, each hotel in our selection here offers easy access to some of the world’s most beautiful beaches.

Palm Beach, Florida

Not only is Florida flanked by a living barrier reef, it’s home to miles of fine, porcelain sands. Sun worshippers and keen naturalists alike have every reason to schedule a trip to the picture-perfect Palm Beaches. Mark out your own secluded patch of prime Floridian sand when staying at The Chesterfield Palm Beach. The hotel provides all the essentials for a leisurely day at the beach.

Umhlanga Rocks, KwaZulu-Natal

Overlooking the glittering Indian Ocean, The Oyster Box is perched above the pristine shores of Umhlanga Rocks. Beach lovers are invited to contribute to keeping the landscape clean. In line with Red Carnation Hotels’ commitment to sustainability, buckets are handed out at reception for guests to fill with litter collected from the beach. Once full, the bucket can be exchanged for a milkshake or cocktail at the hotel’s bar.

Camps Bay, Cape Town

Gazing out across the 12 Apostles and Table Mountain, The Twelve Apostles is a stone’s throw from Cape Town’s most celebrated natural sights—including Camps Bay. Sprawl out with a good book on Camps Bay Beach or, for a quieter option, one of the Clifton Beaches. Meanwhile, thrill-seekers can duck under the water on a scuba dive or stay atop the waves to surf. A wave rider’s paradise, there are plenty of great surfing spots along the coast.

St Peter Port, Guernsey

Whether it’s watching the local fishing boats arrive at St Peter Port with their catch of the day or uncovering the island’s hidden swimming spots, beautiful beaches are among Guernsey’s key draws. For stunning views and easy access to the coast, stay at either The Duke of Richmond Hotel or The Old Government House Hotel & Spa.

Lake Geneva, Geneva

Flanked by sandy beaches and scenic rocky headlands, Lake Geneva is one of Switzerland’s most beautiful alpine lakes. Owing to its gently lapping waves and crystal-clear, fresh water, it’s perfect for fun aquatic pursuits such as sailing and swimming. A leisurely stroll from Hotel d’Angleterre, the lakeside Bains des Pâquis offers an invigorating dip whatever the season.

The Jurassic Coast, Dorset

Bound by spools of unspoilt coastline and crashing seas, Dorset is a seriously photogenic location. Guests at Summer Lodge Country House Hotel and Restaurant can head out to explore the region’s revered beaches. Fossil hunting and aquatic sports are hugely popular pastimes here with both locals and visitors.

The Wild Atlantic Way, Ireland

To truly experience the Emerald Isle’s breath-taking coast, Ashford Castle is an ideal gateway to the country’s famed Wild Atlantic Way. Spanning 1,500 miles and seven counties, the seafaring route is a dramatic example of Ireland’s astonishing natural beauty. The hotel is set in the heart of County Mayo, a picturesque stretch within reach of the towering Cliffs of Moher and Clew Bay’s remarkable expanse.
