Think of a remote island escape, and you’re already halfway to Hotel U Capu Biancu. Right on the southern tip of the French island of Corsica, this four-star hotel is ideal for a secluded getaway. The hotel shows off blockbuster views of the surrounding bay, two private beaches for guests, a heated swimming pool to bathe stylishly in, plus a shiny TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
The nearest town of Bonifacio is about a 15-minute drive away, so you’re guaranteed a quiet break with nothing but the stellar scenery of the Gulf of Santa-Manza for company. There’s plenty to do in the surrounding Corsican landscape, though – hiking, horseback trails and canyoning are just some of the activities the island offers. If you just crave some R&R, there’s a dedicated napping area at U Capu Biancu, too. We won’t judge…
Rooms and suites
Both rooms and suites are decked out in lovely raw materials like wood or stone, have a light and airy feel and soft furnishings with warm tones. Superior rooms with sea view measure 237 to 258 square feet, and Junior suites with sea view include traditional architecture and alcoves among their 377 to 409 square feet. They both come with a balcony and views out over the bay.
U Capu Biancu’s restaurant does a neat line in local Corsican cuisine from head chef Gadjo El Hadji – expect seafood and meat dishes prepared with flair. There’s also the casual beachside eatery La Paillotte, which serves super-fresh, tasty seafood, alongside a lounge bar and terrace for sunset drinks.
Located right on the southern tip of Corsica, U Capu Biancu is a remote escape, rather than in the thick of it. The nearest town, Bonifacio, is about 15 minutes’ drive away, so the vibe here is all about seclusion. If you want to travel elsewhere in Corsica, it’d be a good idea to rent a car.
How to Get There
The hotel was fantastic for a few days to relax ands do nothing. The food and servicer was great and the rooms were lovely although we had a hand held shower which was bizarre! if you know your beaches this one wasn't great as its not sandy but quite coarse. Otherwise a great little hotel.
Excellent hotel. fabulous location. Comfortable immaculate rooms, friendly efficient staff.
We had a villa away from the hotel. Well equipped and comfortable with a small pool. It was perfect. Hotel has all facilities and its private beach. We could have stayed for ever.
Overall really enjoyed our stay here. The hotel staff was friendly and welcoming. They arranged transportation for us which was super helpful - not an area that you can just flag down a taxi, so rent a car or use their transfer service. Room was clean, comfortable and had amazing views. The beach area is rocky but nice if you just want to lay out and dip your toes in the water. They provide beach loungers and towels. The hotel is very remote, which in my eyes is definitely a plus but also means that you are limited to their dining options -unless you have a rental car or want to pay for a private taxi. We were there for one night and so ate dinner and breakfast at the hotel. As some other reviewers have noted, the food is pricey. It was good but in my opinion not excellent. As we were only there for one night it wasn’t a huge deal. The sommelier gave us an excellent wine recommendation which we appreciated.
