Our favourite rooms
The sea-view rooms and suites have breath-taking ocean vistas from their private balconies; Laetitia, a Sea-View Deluxe Suite, has a large copper bath tub overlooking the bay. If you prefer turf to surf, the Maquis-View Junior Suites have large private terraces with beautiful outlooks over the flower-filled gardens and the mountain ranges in the distance.
Surrounded by heavy stone boulders, flowering vegetation and a lounger-lined terrace, the heated outdoor infinity pool has beautiful views of the bay.
Distractions are kept to a minimum in the simple wooden spa-shack. Let the sweet smell of Corsican flowers and herbs soothe you as you unwind with a clementine-and-myrtle massage, or a honeyed butter-and-sugar facial that’ll nourish and rehydrate sun-frazzled skin. Pilates, yoga and fitness classes are also on offer.
Bonifacio is like a rustic Riviera, so pack lots of simple blue and white linens. Leave your heels and suit jackets at home.
The lobby, main restaurant and bar are wheelchair-accessible, and there are two bedrooms with disabled access (one Superior Sea-View Room and a Sea-View Junior Suite). Ask at reception for a ride down to the beach in the hotel’s electric buggy.
Pets can stay for €45 a night; the hotel has on-loan cushions and bowls. See more pet-friendly hotels in Corsica.
