Florentine designer Michele Böna spared no details at this 22-room residential-style property perched high above the Capri harbor. The library, dining room, bar, and living room—all with large French doors facing the ocean—have a cosmopolitan nautical look, with blue walls, framed black-and-white images of sailboats, decorative portholes, and plush pillow-strewn sofas. A heated outdoor pool surrounded by greenery, a small spa, and ample open-air terraces add to the breezy, stylish atmosphere.
J.K Place Capri has seven room types plus a Penthouse Suite decorated in a contemporary classic style that includes four-poster beds, whitewashed wainscotting, and blue fabrics. Except for Classic Rooms, all overlook the harbor or pool and most feature private balconies.
Both the lounge bar and restaurant, JKitchen, stand out for their spacious panoramic terraces where house cocktails like the Negroni di Sera (Carpano red vermouth, Campari and Hendrick’s gin) and hearty Mediterranean fare (handmade pastas, risotto, fresh shellfish) are conducive to boozy lunches and romantic dinners.
Capri, an island near the Amalfi Coast, has been a popular tourist destination for Italians and foreigners alike since the 1950s. The nearest airport is in Naples, where several hydrofoil boats depart daily to Capri from Molo Beverello harbor. While J.K. Place is set on a trafficked road to Capri town, it still feels blissfully secluded.
