J.K. Place Capri
What We Love
- Drinking sweet vermouth on the terrace at J.K Bar, with views of limestone crags and armies of yachts floating on lapis lazuli waters
- The proximity to nearby Capri town, famous for its upscale boutiques and lively restaurant-lined piazzetta
- Getting a massage right on your daybed by the garden-side pool
What To Know
- Capri has a beach culture but not many beaches; sunbathers lounge on flat rocks perched on the sea
- Classic Rooms look inland towards Monte Solaro; it’s better to choose among the other six room categories offering sea or pool views
- Kids are welcome at this mostly-adults property, there are even cooking classes conceived for young guests
- Open seasonally from April through October, with a seven-night minimum stay requirement from mid-June until mid-September
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.
How to Get There
We just finished a phenomenal few days at the JK Capri. We have traveled extensively, and found this boutique hotel to be exquisite. Spotless, bright and airy with attention to detail we could not have imagined. We were immediately and warmly welcomed to feel like we had visited the property a number of times before.
The hotel offers a free shuttle service, a 5 minute ride, to the central shopping/restaurant area. It was nice to have easy access yet be away from the crowds.
Thank you to Marco for his personable and candid suggestions on the area’s places to go and things to do. We felt like we had a friend at the hotel. And a grand thank you to the hotel’s management. Fabulous job! Everyone smiles at JK— the guests and the staff. You will see us again in Capri, and we will definitely seek out other JK properties.
We had a fantastic stay at the JK Place Capri. From the moment we arrived to the time we left the staff were so friendly, helpful and attentive to our every needs. The room we had was great and of a very good size and had a lovely balcony with seating area. Again, I can’t praise the staff highly enough!
Both my wife and I absolutely love the hotel and cannot fault it. Would highly recommend and will definitely return in the near future.
Luxurious hotel with fantastic view, definately one of the best resorts in Capri. It is a very nice place to spend your vacation in a really relaxing way so I would recomend to everyone to have the experience of J.K.Place Capri (even though we went at the peak season and there where many guests, everything was absolutey perfect)!
unparalleled service, chic suites and fabulous hotel grounds. My husband and I have stayed at this property every summer since our first trip. The hotel has a shuttle that will take you to both Anacapri as well as downtown Capri with 5-10 minute notice. Stefano, who is the operation manager is the absolute best! On our first trip to the hotel we arrived to the greeting of 5 hotel staff members, then were pulled aside to be told we left our passports in Ravello. This was our last stop after 6 weeks of travel, and we only had a few days. Enter panic...while on the phone with Palazzo Avino hotel (wonderful hotel in Ravello) Stefano takes the phone from me, replaces it with my now favorite cocktail, an aperol spritz and tells me he will take care of it and not to worry! Thanks to the cocktail(S) and Stefano I had nothing to worry about. J.K. Capri had passport picked up and returned to us for a nominal fee. This hotel truly embodies 5 star service. The pictures of the hotel and the views brought us there, but the service is what keeps us coming back!
We just stayed at JK Capri for four nighta and I really struggled in choosing a hotel to book on the island since it was our first time visiting. JK was AMAZING. We went and spent time and checked out every other hotel on the island in the same price range and let me tell you this is the BEST hotel hands down to stay in. The staff is over the top and the food and drinks were fantastic. Our room 23 was fabulous! Try and book a room on the top floor with a large terrace but all the rooms are lovely. Do not let anyone tell you the location is bad it ended up bein the best location to get away from the crowds and be close to the water and the boats for an amazing boat tour. So romantic at night with hundreds of candles lit up and sitting on the deck with the blankets they give you. Beautfil scented perfume and real flowers through out. This JK team has their act together! Thank you to Ricardo best bartender and the other waitor at night, the breakfast ladies, Diego and Daniel and Luciano our drivers and Victoria, Maria Clara, Dileta, Nino and Stephano. Nothing was too much for them! Feel free to message me if you would like more specifics but trust me just book this hotel. All the other ones had some downsides IMHO. I am a hotel lady so I am pretty picky and this hotel is lovely! We will be back! They made all our dinner reservations and made my husbands birthday so memorable. You could tell that everywhere we went on the island we were treated like VIP's simply because we were staying at JK. Do not miss booking a boat around the island and lunch with beach chairs at La Fontelina. Such a magical hotel. Missing it already. Super intimate and romantic. No large groups overwelming the whole hotel which we did encounter at two of the other hotels on Anacapri. The free shuttle to town and back was always on time and lovely.
