Never were there two better words to describe South Sands Hotel than COASTAL STYLE. South Sands is an "understated beach chic" luxury boutique hotel with only 22 rooms and 5 beach suites. Perched on a horseshoe bay, South Sands Hotel draws its decor inspiration from Salcombe’s maritime history and its own seaside backdrop. You will find simple touches of beach and sailing life in the driftwood & beach stones scattered throughout as well as the recycled sailcloth furnishings and port-hole features in the bathrooms. Beach suites can accommodate up to six guests (perfect for friends or family travel) and have fully-equiped kitchens, large dining & living spaces and, best of all, balconies or private terraces. One of my favorite features of South Sands Hotel, is its proud sense of place by supporting local craftsmen and artists to add to the decor of this fantastic property.
