Carbis Bay Hotel
Run by the Baker family, the Carbis Bay Hotel & Estate is a tranquil paradise offering a complete hotel service; courteous, friendly staff and attention to detail are apparent from the moment you arrive and are part of the hotel’s culture and tradition. Carbis Bay is part of the larger St Ives Bay, one of only two bays in the United Kingdom to qualify as a member of the exclusive, internationally recognised ‘Most Beautiful Bays in the World’ organisation.
The Carbis Bay Estate combines the perfect holiday ingredients from a luxury hotel to self-catering apartments and cottages – all with outstanding coastal views. This unique destination is panoramic living at its best – with coastal grandeur and an unrivalled beach location.
The Hotel & Estate recently launched eight new additions; with a new restaurant, function room and conference space also open. The launch of the new lodges and suites signals the end of a decade-long £15 million development project.
The new two and three storey beach lodges either have a rooftop garden or beach gardens, with three or four bedrooms, a large open plan living space and dining room, kitchenette and a private garden. These new lodges are Carbis Bay’s most desirable residences yet. Situated directly on the beach, they combine seaside chic with hot tubs, sauna pods and plunge pools. The open-plan lounges have floor-to-ceiling windows leading to private sun decks and all have bay facing balconies.
In addition to the Beach Lodges, a series of six Beach Suites – including one Supersuite – were also part of the project. Few sights on earth rival the perfect sweep and magnificent colours of St Ives Bay – and few perches have a better view of it than the balconies of the sites Beachside Suites, including the sumptuous Supersuite. The vista is almost as thrilling inside too, framed by gigantic windows which flood large sitting areas with light. Situated above the new restaurant, bistro and dedicated lounge, the comfy suites also possess broad bedrooms and stylish, soft-hued interiors; easy on the eye and even easier on the soul. A lift connects down to the sandy 25-acre beach, and to the promenade, where further Carbis Bay Estate temptations from facials to fine cognacs await. Just like the lodges, the suites are available all year round.
With floor-to-ceiling glazing, the Supersuite combines suites 7 and 8 to form a stunning, spacious, two en-suite bedroom Supersuite with dressing area and a large lounge with dramatic coastal views, that sleeps up to four people. Doors from the bedrooms and lounge lead to an expansive balcony spanning the Supersuite to enjoy the coastal views of St Ives Bay and Godrevy Lighthouse beyond. A lift provides access to all facilities, including signature restaurant, bistro, lounge, retail and beach.
The development has also included a 15,000sq.ft multi-use event space and dining and retail facilities.
Built in 1894 by the famous Cornish architect, Silvanus Trevail, the Carbis Bay Hotel quickly gained popularity as a result of the boom in seaside holidays. Today, the business is owned and managed by the Baker family who have made significant developments to the site. Due to this ongoing investment programme, the hotel is widely recognised as one of Cornwall’s leading waterside hotels.
