5 star hotel

Sleek and sexy. Fun and occasionally furry. A Capri 5-star to die for.

You know as soon as you walk in that you’re going to enjoy this. JK Place is cool and sexy but the atmosphere is approachable and friendly.

Location

Just up from the Marina Grande (but they’ll come and pick you up if you give them a call), JK is right on the seafront. There’s been a hotel on this site since 1885, possibly earlier, but nothing like this.

Bedrooms

Gorgeous. Lots of pillows, some with fun (but tasteful) fur trim; some with four posters; all spacious (minimum 25 square metres); all with a view, either of a courtyard or the sea (obviously that sea view has a premium). The penthouse is the size of a small flat (50 square metres) and has its own panoramic terrace with fabulous sea views. 

Public areas

Everywhere is gorgeous and, as if to confirm it, there was a fashion shoot going on when I arrived. From the floral displays to the paintings to tastefully-arranged books, this is a hotel for ogling and then enjoying. The terrace looks out onto the lovely blue water.

Eating and drinking

Breakfasts are big and buffet-style, but if you fancy an omelette or a big fry-up, no problem. The restaurant is open all day; how’s that for luxurious? The prices are keen (starters start at 20 euros, fresh catch of the day €95/kg) but the menu is fresh and exciting. There’s also a bar area. If the credit car holds out, you might never leave… 

Leisure facilities

The spa… it looks out onto the (heated) pool so if the sun is shining and you’re having a massage overlooking the blue, you’ll feel as you’ve gone to heaven. It was raining when I last left the spa, but I still felt on top of the world. For gym bunnies, there are all the machines you’d expect too – you also get that view.

Service

Excellent. I had a few problems with my laptop during my last visit and every effort was made to fix it. There is always someone around to help. Gabriella is a real asset to the place – incredibly efficient but super-friendly too. Any kind of trip can be booked, including helicopter and boat transfers, walking tours with a guide, and tours around the island (including at night).

Who stays there

Honeymooners, fashion models, film stars, and those with big pockets.

Price advice

Like a lot of hotels, JK Capri shuts over the winter season and will reopen on 20th April 2011.
