The beach. The view. The accommodation. The dining. Carbis Bay Hotel at St Ives in Cornwall has it all. Oh, and plenty of awards and accolades too. Not many luxury hotels can lay claim to having their own Blue Flag accredited beach, in a bay that is one of the most beautiful in the world. Carbis Bay Hotel sits above 25 acres of golden sand, and is a private family run business that is steeped in history and tradition.
The beach and the bay offer plentiful opportunities to learn and have fun. There is an abundance of natural marine life to be seen, with special boat trips allowing extraordinary exposure to the local sea world. Canoeing, kayaking and even beach olympics are all available within the bay.
Carbis Bay Hotel offers both hotel rooms and self catering accommodation – all of an exceptionally high standard. The main hotel is home to 47 individually appointed rooms, all styled uniquely, with many offering unforgettable views over the sea. Rooms range from standard to deluxe and are available from single through to interconnecting rooms suitable for families.
The self catering accommodation takes the form of luxury apartments, traditional stone built cottages, modern beach houses, bungalows and assorted individual properties. All are appointed immaculately, with many being close to the beach, and others only a few moments’ drive away. Experience the flexibility of being self catering, with the facilities of an award winning hotel close at hand.
Dining at Carbis Bay Hotel in Cornwall is an indulgent experience. The Sands Restaurant has proudly held an AA Rosette for outstanding cuisine for 14 years, and delivers consistently high standards of fine dining.

Children are particularly welcomed and have their own special menu at Carbis Bay Hotel.
The newly opened Beach Club and Spa also has a fabulous beachside restaurant where you can indulge in delicious dishes as you soak up the gorgeous views across the bay.
A unique feature of Carbis Bay Hotel is the small matter of the yacht which is available for exclusive charter. This striking state of the art vessel is available for groups of up to 10, plus 2 crew, for hire from an hour to a full day. Children are very welcome. The yacht makes an ideal option for special occasions and corporate events.
The extensive facilities at Carbis Bay Hotel make it the perfect venue for weddings, corporate functions, team building, childrens’ parties and celebration dinners.
