Chic Escapes - JK Place Capri

Chic Hunters loves Capri because it is simply breathtaking. The views to and from Capri are the most picturesque. The Fraglioni rocks are the isle's most iconic landmarks. The small piazza in Capri is filled with designer shops from Dolce & Gabbana, Hermes, Bottega Veneta etc. Walk around the piazza and imagine all the people of who have walked there before: Jackie Kennedy, Valentino, Sophia Loren. 

The people who visit Capri are also of the fashionable and chic set - the ones with the yachts, those who have villas in Anacapri, or those who choose to stay in the many luxurious hotels in Capri. (Not the ones who come for the day in tour groups.) Imagine women in flowy Pucci caftans and Hermes Panama hats and the famous Carpi sandals. Think of men in seersucker pants and linen shirts.

One of the most beautiful hotels in Capri is the JK Place Hotel, which overlooks the blue waters of the island. Unlike most hotels in Capri which are traditional and baroque, JK Place is contemporary and has the feel of a super chic home store - Kelly We
arstler meets Jonathan Adler meets Thad Hayes.

JK Place is made to feel like a home - there is a living room filled with designer books, a dining room in a handsome shade of blue and a veranda that looks into the blue yonder. The pool area is stunningly spare set in a minimalist garden.

The rooms are nautical in theme. Chic Hunters stayed at a room with a blue and white motif. We especially loved the canopied bed and the black white photos of sailboats.

We look forward to another summer of enjoying aperitifs at JK Place's terrace.
