The Summer Holiday Diaries – Capri
Well the Chef and I have just returned from our weekend jaunt to the uber-cool Capri and I couldn’t wait to tell you all about it. The J.K Place was exactly what the doctor ordered. With it’s laidback glamour I felt like Sophia Loren relaxing on a sun-lounger, martini in hand! Divine.
Apparently the hotel was almost full and yet it had a wonderful intimate ambience, as if we were staying in our own private villa with all the luxury 5-star services to be expected of an SLH. There are these gorgeous little touches all over the hotel from quirky ancient statues to canvases of modern art.
The location was absolutely to die for and my private pilates lesson every morning in the JK Place gardens certainly offered better views than the streets of Chelsea!
The Chef and I loved driving around nearby Positano in our fabulous classic car – we didn’t quite make it to Ischia and Ravello though as the Chef had a bit of a disagreement with the left-hand drive… Oh well.
Like all women learn at quite a young age, I know the best way to cheer up a man… through his stomach. Luckily for the Chef the food at the JK Place Capri was some of the freshest, more succulent and delicious food on the island; unfortunately for me I liked it so much that fitting into my Melissa Odabash bikini by the last day was a little bit of a struggle.
So for my next European trip I have decided I need a total Spa detox. I’ve already got my eye on the Thalassa Boutique Hotel & Spa in Paphos, Cyprus or maybe I should spend some time on UK soil and check out the Pennyhill Park Hotel and the Spa in Bagshot, Surrey. Paul, what would you recommend?
