Add The Relais Cooden Beach to your Itinerary

exterior of The Relais Cooden Beach


Just over two hours from London, this elegant resort redefines the concept of English seaside hotels with its stylish new interiors. Located on a private beach with uninterrupted views across the English Channel, this is a restorative resort for all seasons – a playful beach club vibe in the height of summer and a welcome retreat throughout winter. From the moment you arrive, you will be captivated by the views of the ever changing seascape and feel the invigorating sensation of being on the water's edge. Step inside and a warm welcome awaits as you relax and enjoy everything the resort has to offer, from our fresh and seasonal menus in our beachfront restaurant to the wellness therapies at the spa. Discover this untouched corner of the East Sussex coast and indulge in the ‘Relais Life’.

Each of our individual rooms and suites have been newly renovated with stylish new interiors inspired by our waterside location. The coastal interiors are designed to capture the essence of the sea with nautical stripes and colours inspired by the blues of the English Channel as well as the warm terracotta of the sun. 

Each room features a luxurious bed and modern bathroom facilities, paired with amenities carefully curated to uplift your waterfront experience in East Sussex. From our ‘cosy rooms’ to our seafront suites - discover your favourite and call on us for any whims or wishes, and we’ll be with you in the twinkling of an eye. 

The Rally Bar & Grill is named in honour of our motorsports heritage and the menus celebrate our seaside location.  Just steps from the beach, The Rally Bar & Grill enjoys the best views in the house and a spacious terrace for seasonal al fresco dining. 

Enjoy fresh and seasonal menus including the ‘catch of the day’ supplied by our local Sussex fishermen. Our menus change with the season with a focus on fish and seafood and locally sourced ingredients. 

Open all day and serving breakfast, lunch and dinner and afternoon tea - whether you’re gathering with friends for a long lazy lunch or celebrating a milestone occasion with family and loved ones, The Rally Bar & Grill is the perfect location to dine, relax and create lasting memories. 

Or Reserve your spot on East Sussex’s newest Beach Club.

Relax on our elegant sun loungers under the shade of our stylish parasols where drinks and refreshments are served throughout the day. The Beach Club operates throughout the summer season and is weather dependent. Sunloungers can be reserved by talking to a member of our team.
