Una St Ives – St Ives, Cornwall
Just outside St Ives in gorgeous, sandy Carbis Bay, Una Resort is a collection of wood-clad lodges and luxury villas, each with chic coastal-inspired interiors, a cosy log burner for chilly evenings, a well-equipped kitchen and a private garden or terrace (the best also come with their own hot tub). When guests don’t feel like cooking, there’s Una Kitchen, previously the Cornwall Tourism Awards’ Restaurant of the Year. Led by head chef Glenn Gatland (previous experience includes Hell Bay on the Isles of Scilly and a trio of restaurants on Tresco), it’s known for Mediterranean-inspired, wood-fired cooking. Stand-out dishes include Cornish sea bream with pea and lemon risotto, slow-cooked pork belly with Parmesan polenta and, of course, delicious hand-stretched pizzas. The friendly reception team can help arrange anything from surf lessons to restaurant reservations, as well as offer insider tips on what to see nearby. Or, if you simply want to stay put and unwind, the spa – with its morning gentle yoga classes, sauna and steam room, and must-book pampering Elemis treatments – awaits.
