Most recent review:

What I liked:

Amazing views over the port of Porto Vecchio, with the sunset streaming over the mountains into the room. Excellent service at the restaurant.

What the hotel could do better:

We were told there is no eating by the pool, which spoils the atmosphere somewhat.

Hotel Description

Something’s been happening in Corsica for a few years now — the mountainous island with its French-Italian hybrid culture, once a haven for pensioners and people who truly apreciate its rugged beauty, is turning hip. And while it will be a few years before Corsica replaces the Côte d’Azur in the public imagination, it’s one small step closer, with the opening of the completely redesigned Hotel Casadelmar.

Jean-François Bodin’s new design, an ultra-modern structure in red cedar and glass, will be sure to bring out the architecture fanatics, as well as the more fashion-conscious patrons; it’s just about the polar opposite of “rustic,” and certainly like nothing else on the island. The setting, though, is as close to nature as any — the 25-meter infinity pool, surrounded by Italian landscaped gardens, overlooks the Porto-Vecchio gulf and the mountains beyond, and every room shares the panoramic view.

Interiors are relentlessly stylish, from the split-level lobby and bar to the rooms and suites, strikingly minimal in white, with accents of light wood and a single bold color, whether bright orange, crimson or deep violet, and classic designer furniture by the likes of Le Corbusier and Bertoia. All rooms and suites have terraces over the bay, and it’s a short hike to the small private beach below.

Perhaps unexpectedly for such a small hotel, Casadelmar has its own spa and fitness center, with interiors possibly as calming as any treatment — cedar floors and black massage tables, with a view of the bay. The Michelin-starred restaurant is excellent as well, crafting Italian cuisine from local Corsican ingredients. You’ll want to stay year-round, but the mere fact that there’s a helipad should give you some clue as to the company you’ll be keeping here — not exactly a budget hotel, but well worth the price.
