One of the finest luxury hotels on the island, this posh, expensive Relais & Chateaux is located on a private, pine-fringed beach with pearly-white sand. The Grand Hotel de Cala Rossa is a mixture of Mediterranean minimalism and luxury hotel hedonism, with so many amenities that you may never set foot off of the grounds. It has a Michelin-starred restaurant, and 45 rooms and suites decorated in different tropical styles. After enjoying the many water sports, golf, tennis, bicycling, horseback riding and other activities on offer, not to mention visiting some of our recommended vineyards, you can unwind with a beauty treatment, or yoga, or visit the fitness centre, which includes a sauna and Turkish bath. Corsica’s top sommelier, Patrick Fioramonti, is responsible for the hotel restaurant’s wine cellar and its wine list. He wrote THE book about Corsican wine, Le Vin Corse, and can guide you through a tasting of the island’s top wines.
