Welcome to the Luxury Villa Resort – UNA St Ives
With its famous beaches, turquoise waters, picturesque harbour and renowned art scene, St Ives is undoubtedly one of the UK’s premier holiday destinations.
Once home to the St Ives School of artists, attracted by the unique quality of light in West Cornwall, this coveted seaside town is filled with atmospheric cobbled lanes, bustling restaurants and independent shops, as well as its very own Tate gallery and Barbara Hepworth Museum.
Imagined by the multi-award-winning Dyer Architects, Una St Ives is designed to blend seamlessly with the natural beauty of its location.
Fashioned with a preference for locallysourced materials, our textured palette of stone, timber and glass feels classically Cornish – with a crisp, contemporary twist.
Each villa features an inverted design that elevates the living space upstairs. From here, the natural hub of your home is perfectly positioned to take in the local landscape through refreshingly airy double-aspect windows.
Every detail in each villa has been thoughtfully designed. From the sympathetic landscaping to the Scandinavian-influenced interior styling and the careful placement of the properties themselves, which nestle into the natural fall of the land to maximise privacy and views.
Sustainability has driven decision-making throughout. For example, rocks excavated during construction have been repurposed as retaining walls and paths. And every villa is heated with energy-efficient air source heat pumps that significantly reduce power consumption.
ON YOUR DOORSTEP
Step outside the comfort of your villa to explore the impressive facilities on hand at Una St Ives.
Stroll through meandering paths illuminated with low-level lighting to the perfectly heated infinity pool. Embrace the soothing heat of the cedar lined sauna. Or indulge in dinner and cocktails at the award-winning Una Kitchen.
The exceptional quality of our amenities makes Una a holiday destination unlike any other in Cornwall.
And with plans in place for a Mediterraneaninspired Piazza, you can also look forward to indoor or outdoor dining at the bistro restaurant or casual drinks at the terrace bar.
At Una St Ives, your resort lifestyle awaits.
CHILL OUT OR WORRK OUT
Featuring one of Cornwall’s biggest resort swimming pools, The Atrium at Una St Ives is the perfect spot to take a dip, work up an appetite or soothe away your strains.
The indoor infinity pool is heated to 31°C for swimming at any time of the year. With double- height windows framing the view to lush Cornish gardens, it’s a truly special location to work out (or zone out) your way.
A brand-new outdoor swimming pool, sun terraces and al fresco dining space are coming soon.
For those seeking more intensity from their workout, our fully-equipped gym makes it easy to fit your fitness routine.
You can stretch your way to strength with Yoga & Pilates classes hosted by local wellness partners.
Post workout, retreat to the eucalyptus-scented steam room to sooth your stresses and strains.
Alternatively, you can relax in the 8 person spa pool or enjoy a revitalising treatment in the on-site luxurious spa.
Enjoy award-winning dining, just moments from your villa. Led by multiple AA Rosette-winning Cornish chef Glenn Gatland, Una Kitchen’s Mediterranean-inspired menu is one you’ll want to return to again and again.
Making the most of seasonal, locally-sourced produce, the Una Kitchen team prepares and serves a wide variety of fayre from the freshest fish and pizzas from our wood-fired Gozney oven and, by popular demand, classic Sunday roasts.
Winner of Restaurant of the Year at the recent Cornwall Tourism Awards, Una Kitchen’s outstanding food and exceptional service makes it perfect for late breakfasts, light lunches or our signature dinners.
By day, you can pop by for a juice, settle in with a good book or have a chat over a cup of tea from a range of black and herbal teas or a perfectly executed cappuccino.
In the evening, the bar offers a wide selection of wines, local beers and hand-crafted cocktails. Perfect for a pre-dinner drink or two.
Purchasing a villa at Una St Ives means you’ll not only receive a 4.5% guaranteed return on your hassle-free investment – you’ll also enjoy up to six weeks a year in your very own holiday home in this unique corner of Britain. Nestled on the fringes of this remarkable town, above Carbis Bay, Una
St Ives is a stunning resort that artfully blends wellness and indulgence, sanctuary and community, lifestyle and investment.
White sandy beaches. Wild cliff top walks. Eclectic shops and eateries. Perfectly situated near the crystal-clear waters of Carbis Bay and just a short drive from the tourist honeypot of St Ives, Una is perfectly placed for culture and nature lovers alike.
The coastline around Una is perfect for surfing, swimming or coasteering, with Carbis Bay 15 minutes by foot or 5 minutes by car and the famous beaches of Hayle, Porthminster and Porthmeor within easy reach.
The special quality of its light has attracted artists to St Ives for generations. Today, as well as the world-famous Tate St Ives and Barbara Hepworth Museum, there are numerous other galleries in the cobbled streets of this very special town. You’ll also be drawn into its picturesque working fishing harbour and boutique shopping, not to mention the wide range of pubs, bars and restaurants. And all just a 10-minute drive or taxi ride from your villa.
In the other direction, St Michael’s Mount is a must-see for its breathtaking gardens, medieval castle and dramatic location. At low tide, you can visit the island by foot. Or at high tide, by boat.
The Minack Theatre’s spectacular cliff top setting, high above the Atlantic, welcomes 250,000 visitors every year to enjoy its stunning setting and 200 live performances. The lush sub-tropical gardens are a nature lover’s paradise, with rare varieties from across the world.
