Saunton Sands Hotel Aerial View with Outdoor Pool

The Hotel with Everything

Devon’s most iconic four-star hotel is packed with so many superb facilities that you could enjoy a magical break without even leaving the hotel (although you’ll probably want to explore). 

Swim in our indoor and outdoor heated swimming pools (outdoor unheated Oct-May for cold water dips and swims) and unwind in our mineral-rich vitality pool in our ocean-view spa. Enjoy a game of tennis or sweat it out in our gym. Indulge in two AA Rosette winning dining in our Dining Room or feast on grilled-to-perfection steaks in our chilled-out sister restaurant the Beachside Grill. Wind down or rev up with our daily fitness and wellbeing classes, including yoga, Pilates, meditation and full body conditioning.
