JK Place Capri
The embodiment of la dolce vita, this glamorous hideaway occupies a white villa perched on a cliff above the Bay of Naples. Though situated on Capri’s main road (and just a five-minute walk to the port), the hotel feels private. Interiors have a chic and polished feel that’s more English seaside than Italian island: The crisp white and navy spaces are studded with beautiful art, antiques, fireplaces, and colorful bouquets of blooms. The views unfurling from large windows and panoramic terraces, however, are decidedly Caprese: Rugged green hills fall into the sea, Vesuvius lurks in the distance, and lemon trees scent the air all around. The island’s craggy peaks are a backdrop to the pool scene, where guests can indulge in a pampering session (a mini massage menu is available poolside, plus there are many more options at the on-site spa), while the terrace bar is an ideal spot for a sunset aperitivo accompanied by tasty bites like sea bream sliders and quail egg canapés. Cloaked in beachy blue, white, and coral colors, guest rooms have posh touches like monogrammed pillows, canopy beds, wingback chairs, and beautiful marble and mosaic-tiled bathrooms—but the true highlights are the sea-view balconies and large terraces wreathed in greenery and furnished with sunbeds and parasols.
