Fodor's Expert Review Grand Hôtel de Cala Rossa

Rte. de Cala Rossa, Porto Vecchio, Corsica, 20137, France Fodor's Choice

Protected by thick foliage in a peaceful bay of the Gulf of Porto-Vecchio, the Grand Hôtel Calla Rossa emanates the feel of a tropical retreat. Stone pathways lead to a luxuriant garden of olive and palm trees and masses of oleander, jasmine, and lavender, fringed by a white-sand beach. Some rooms include balconies or terraces; there are also suites available as well a one-bedroom treehouse. Highlights of a stay here include sunbathing on the raised outdoor patio or beachside and enjoying complimentary boat rides across the gulf to the Massif de l’Ospendale. A seven-treatment room spa by NUCCA is of Japanese design with cedar floors and all facilities, including pool.
