"The view over sand and sea is breathtaking" -- The AA Restaurant Guide 2019

  • Two-night stays are £239 with the second night on B&B

Why We Love It

  • This boutique hotel overlooks its own Blue Flag beach
  • The luxury spa has a Good Spa Guide 5-bubble rating, and the hotel holds a VisitEngland Silver Award
  • There's a heated outdoor pool, a sauna and a champagne bar
  • You can dine on fresh seafood caught by local fishing boats at the 2-AA-Rosette restaurant


Carbis Bay Hotel was built in 1894, on a hillside overlooking its own white-sand Blue Flag beach. The hotel was the inspiration for The Sands Hotel in the novels of Rosamunde Pilcher, and Virginia Woolf -- a former guest -- is said to have used Godrevy Lighthouse across the bay as her inspiration for To the Lighthouse.

Facilities within the "handsome 125-acre estate" (The Daily Telegraph) include the award-winning C Bay Spa, which has a heated outdoor pool, a hydrotherapy pool, a sauna pod and a Ruinart champagne bar. There is also an accredited watersports centre, where you can hire canoes and paddleboards for an extra cost.

The fine-dining Sands Restaurant serves seafood that arrives daily from fishing boats in St Ives, and you can sip a cocktail, cognac or champagne at the bar while watching the sun set over the sea. The Beach Club Restaurant and The Conservatory both serve lighter bites in a more casual environment.

St Ives -- a "pretty jumble of slate roofs, church towers and turquoise bays" (Lonely Planet), that is home to Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Museum -- is 20 minutes away by bus. You can also walk into town in about 30 minutes along the South West Coast Path, which runs past the hotel. Godrevy Lighthouse, St Michael's Mount and Penzance are all within 25 minutes' drive. Wi-Fi is free.

From the press:

  • "Scenically perched just above its own sandy Blue Flag beach outside St Ives, Carbis Bay's position is truly stunning" -- The Daily Telegraph

  • "There aren't many spas in the UK where you can sit in a sauna and watch a pod of dolphins swim across a bay, but this is one of them" -- The Good Spa Guide

Food we had looked superb but was actually a little dry and underseasoned. Good value at the Travelzoo inclusive price.

On registration we were relieved of £50 to cover any in house expenses. Upon leaving what we had spent was charged AGAIN - with a promise for the £50 to be reimbursed. We still await that reimbursement - it's now become an non-negotiated LOAN ! Hotel was busy - so this is a clever way of creating a working fund !!!
