POV: You wake up to crashing waves, wander over to the balcony that overlooks one of Cornwalls finest beaches, head to the bathroom to run a bubble bath and enjoy the same view, whilst drinking your morning coffee. Sound pretty damn good, yeah? Well, that was reality when I had the pleasure of spending the night at Fistral Hotel & Spa.
Fistral Hotel & Spa is an adults only hotel, over looking Fistral beach. There’s a variety of rooms, with some of the best rooms offering these balcony views over the waves from both the bedroom and the bathroom! With a large king bed, sofa area, dining table, bath and shower and a balcony which stretches the full length of the room, this really is luxury.
There’s a beautiful spa in the hotel, with a pool and packages to enjoy but if you fancy enjoying the room, you can lay in the tub and feel like you’re already in a five star spa! I laid here taking in the view, with the sliding doors open so I could hear the waves and honestly, I’ve never been more zen.
The hotel also offers dining in the form of either their Bay Bar for a more relaxed dining experience and cocktails or their Dune Restaurant for fine dining, including their tasting menu.
We tried out their tasting menu which was five courses of flavourful and fresh dishes, from trout to duck, lamb and the most amazing strawberry dessert! You can accompany the tasting menu with wine pairings alongside each course.
The dining experience wasn’t over! The next morning it was time for breakfast and we enjoyed their breakfast buffet and hot breakfast menu. Obviously, the dining space takes full advantage of that view also!
We had the best night at Fistral Hotel & Spa and can highly, highly recommend it for a luxury stay in Cornwall.
