The Corran Resort & Spa
A unique mix of metropolitan sophistication and rural charm. A stunning, no-expense spared conversion of an old farm complex, set in an evocative – make that poetic – location. It’s laid-back luxury from one-of-a-kind.
As The Corran Resort and Spa comes into view at the end of a winding series of single track lanes, hidden in the marshlands of the Carmarthenshire countryside, it’s clear that peace and quiet are never in short supply here. The new re-incarnation of this boutique luxury hotel haven is reassuringly simple; great smiling service, delicious food with a Welsh twist, and natural surroundings. Caressed by the sea, the Towy estuary and acres of marshland, the Corran is steeped in history with the original 16th century building at the heart of this expertly restored luxury hotel. Honey pot tourism destination, Laugharne, with its history and independent shops, is a short drive or a bracing walk away and the sweeping sandy beaches of Carmarthenshire are easily within reach.
There are twenty-one individually-styled and refreshingly spacious bedrooms, each with a differing contemporary interior design, a choice of quirky floor plans, big-sky views over the sweeping marshland and all have on-trend gorgeous en-suite bathrooms. We loved the suites with mezzanines, and the striking bathroom with its huge monsoon shower in Room 8 is to die for. There’s also wide screen satellite TV’s allowing you to create your own relaxing atmosphere. Splashes of colour are provided by original Welsh art, and luxurious local soft furnishings.
The spanking new Spa houses a glamourous heated pool with its Beverley Hills starlight ceiling, soothing treatment rooms and a state of the art gym. The addition of the tranquil relaxation suite makes an indulgent short break one to remember.
The oldest part of the resort is home to the Dining Room. There’s great ambition showing in the cooking here, and a seasonal sense of place runs through the DNA of the on-trend menus, delivered with more than a splash of Welsh character. A toasty log burner warms the cosy corners of the bar, and deep leather armchairs and sofas help time to stand still. As Dylan Thomas once said, ‘Cold beer is bottled God’.
You’ll receive a warm welcome at the Corran whether you’re looking for a quiet, romantic weekend retreat or are keen to explore this beautiful corner of Carmarthenshire with its rich history and sandy beaches. See you soon.
