We prove that an $(n + 1)$-dimensional spin static vacuum with negative cosmological constant whose null infinity has a boundary admitting a non-trivial Killing spinor field is the AdS spacetime. As a consequence, we generalize previous uniqueness results by X. Wang [40, 42] and by Chruściel-Herzlich [20] and introduce, for this class of spin static vacua, some Lorentzian manifolds which are prohibited as null infinities.
