Boutique Hotel — Camber Sands

is a place



The sand between your toes. Sky and beach as far as your eyes can see. Wonderful food made with love. Deeply comfortable beds. Beautiful rooms and a team that are here to make you smile. All these things in abundance. But something new and different too.

An invitation to find inspiration here. Through daily yoga, talks and workshops with experts in food, creative practices and more.

So not just hotel business as usual, but a chance to learn new things with a handful of new people and leave not only happy, but inspired.

The re-awakened Gallivant is open for the exclusive use of our overnight guests, our Members and their friends.

We are always looking for optimistic people to join our team and offer ground breaking benefits and £1,000 for all successful introductions. See our industry leading Gallivant Wellness Employment Charter.


Space to breathe

The Gallivant is spacious and comfortable. For all our team and guests to feel safe and relaxed we need to keep numbers lower. That’s one of the reasons we are now only open for overnight guests, our Members and their friends. This makes physical distancing easy to apply. No pressure on space, no pressure on you.

Keeping numbers low also means we can focus our time and effort on the important things – like keeping things scrupulously cleaner and ensuring our team follow best in industry hygiene practices.

    How do I book a class or a treatment?

    Are dogs allowed at the Gallivant / on the beach?

    Yes, but we only allow smallish dogs, so nothing bigger than a spaniel please. They are allowed in the bar area and in three of our bedrooms but please never on any furniture.  They are also allowed on the beach all year round but in the summer only to the right hand side of the beach as you walk onto it from in front of us.
