JK Place, Capri


"One of Italy's best hotels and the only hotel in Capri that actually sits on the sea front. Quiet enough to escape the 'scene' (or be at the very epicenter — you choose). Feels like a private home, perched on the cliff and filled with art, antiques and fresh flowers: the perfect mix of style, energy and relaxation. I designed my bedroom after their living room!"
- Suzanne (Date Experienced: June 2009)

Great for
A stylish stay that doesn't forget where it is — a pretty island off the Amalfi coast.

With whom
Tryst with your lover...

Memorable moment
Sipping my White Lillet on the rocks, terrace side, overlooking the sea below before heading into town for dinner.

Best time to go
Avoid August when the area gets crowded and hot hot hot.

With the kids
There's not a lot to keep kids entertained in Capri and the hotel is best for adults.

Be aware
The Penthouse Suites are not much bigger than the deluxe room

Room options
Classic seaside chic in glossy navy and white. All have canopied beds, marble fireplaces, black and white art and views over sea or gardens — opt for a sea view.

Service & vibe
Relaxed, yet very professional whilst adorably Italian. Nothing pretentious about "May I show you to your table"

Excellent classic Mediterranean fare served throughout the day. Dinner at JKitchen is a classy seafood affair.

Price range
From €700

Costs less to go
October and April/May

To Do & See
Head to town for shopping (including Anacapri), ask the concierge to organize a boat trip around the island and the coast (see the Blue Grotto early), hike on amazing paths winding to little discoveries.

Sport & Activity
Fitness center and lovely, serene-scene poolside that is heated — meaning you can swim when the weather cools.

Spa & Grooming
KSpa with natural skincare products and talented therapists. All white — all lush.

To Eat
Fresh-as-you-can-get seafood at Add'o Riccio in the cliffs overlooking the blue grotto (+39 81 837 1380), authentic local specialties at Da Gemma, the oldest restaurant on the island (+39 81 837 0461).

To Buy
Handicraft in Anacapri and those sandals from Canfora (www.canforacapri.com); Italian designer fashion in Capri

Itinerary Idea
