Opening in 2007, four years after sister property JK Place Firenze, JK Place Capri immediately became the boutique beauty of the Capri hotel scene, and has maintained its standards and its buzz ever since.
In a cliff top villa-style mansion overlooking the Marina Grande, the JK Place Capri is a little way from the boutiques and the bustle of the centre of Capri town itself, which is for many people a good thing. Also, its seaside location is a rare (and clearly a good) thing in Capri.
Hotel insiders claim that the JK Place Capri is where Florentine architect and designer Michele Bonan’s talent is shown off to its utmost, and it is apparently in this hotel that he had most influence, down to mixing paint colours for the walls. The overall aesthetic is modern marine, with sleek and personal touches appropriate to what feels like a private home; huge elegant vases, shelves lined with books, and striking artwork.
The JK Place Capri has just 22 rooms, and all have balconies or terraces, mostly with sea views.
The J.K. Spa uses ESPA treatments and products, and has three treatment rooms is a small pavilion alongside the large swimming pool.
The hotel’s JKitchen Lounge & Restaurant serves traditional Mediterranean cuisine and has a huge panoramic terrace overlooking Capri harbour.
If this style of hotel is for you, and you’ll be visiting mainland Italy during your trip, consider this hotel’s sister property, in Florence; JK Place Firenze.
