St Michael’s Resort
Facing Gyllyngvase beach, this chic, contemporary hotel is a far cry from the tacky seaside B&Bs that often spring to mind. Kitted out in soothing, nautical colours, with sleek king-size beds and walk-in rainfall showers, the rooms at St Michael’s offer a truly comfortable stay for the discerning traveller. Book into a sea-facing room, and be sure to indulge in the spa, which features a 17m indoor pool and a bespoke treatment menu. For evening dining, the Flying Fish restaurant not only has some of the best fresh seafood for miles, it also serves up pretty good views.
