Highs & Lows

  • You're in Capri! Arguably the best place in the world.

  • J.K. Place feels like the home of your very chic Italian family...incredibly warm service, beautiful (yet) comfortable spaces, what more could you want?

  • This is a designer’s paradise…the impressive collective of objects throughout help to make this space feel less like a hotel and more like the aforementioned home. I’m moving in.

  • The views. I felt like I was seeing life in technicolor! Bright bright blue sea and sky.

  • We had our own private and spacious terrace (!) with lounges and a little table for a mid-afternoon snack.

  • I could go on and on with the highs…but I’ll stop here, just know that this is a truly special place.

    You can order a cocktail pretty much anywhere on property - but definitely have a drink on the terrace and watch the sun set over Mount Vesuvius.

    You can (people do)...but maybe don't.
