The new luxury beach lodges and suites at Carbis Bay Hotel will signal the end of almost a decade-long £15m development project at the independently-owned Cornwall boutique when they launch in July.
The Carbis Bay Hotel & Estate near St Ives will open eight new additions this month, with a new restaurant, function room and conference space soon to launch after as a result.
Father and son owners Malcom and Stephen Baker took on the business in 1981 and it still remains in the family today. They said that the launch of the new accommodation was seeing their ‘vision come to life’.
The two- and three-storey beach lodges will 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.
The development will also include a 15,00 sq ft multi-use event space and dining and retail facilities.
Stephen Baker: “We are finally seeing our vision for a new level of luxury accommodation in Cornwall come to life here at Carbis Bay. The project has been a big undertaking, and involved the construction of a new sea wall before we were able to begin the building work itself. But, after almost ten years in the making, we are excited to finally be opening our Beach Lodges and Suites to guests this summer, and hosting weddings and celebrations in our beautiful new events space.”
In addition to the Beach Lodges, a series of six Beach Suites – including one Super-Suite – are also part of the project, are expected to be completed by autumn 2018.
Guests to the beach suites and lodges will also have use of all the facilities at Carbis Bay Hotel & Estate, including its Sunseeker motor yacht, fine-dining restaurant The Sands and the award-winning C Bay Spa.
Set within 125-acres, the Carbis Bay Estate comprises of the Carbis Bay Hotel with over 47 bedrooms, as well as a range of self-catering accommodation and serviced apartments, set against the backdrop of the Estate’s privately owned 25-acre Blue Flag beach.
