The Riviera Reborn

One of the finest boutique hotels in Devon

Brimming with coastal charm, Cary Arms and Spa on the Beach combine all the values of a classic English Inn with the style and comfort of the best luxury hotels in Devon. Join us for superb seaside gastro dining, unwind at the sublime Spa on the Beach, or make it a true seaside escape with our selection of chic rooms, suites and cottages.

Sitting in the sunny, sheltered haven of Babbacombe Bay on the South Devon coast, the outstanding setting and views are breathtakingly beautiful 365 days of the year. Spend your days with a restorative massage or bespoke spa treatment, a picnic down on the beach or take a table on the terrace for lunch. If you're lucky and book early you might bag the prized Captain’s Table. Stay with us and see for yourself why we are one of the best places to dine, relax and stay in Torbay.
