South Beach was (can you believe it), once just another beach in Miami, and not yet the play-ground of taste-makers and party people. This combination now makes for a energetic cocktail of hot spots and equally hot properties. W Miami is clearly in its element here as upon entering this South Beach mainstay, one immediately feels transported into the cool bubble as you float over to the concierge for the (inside) scoop of all things South Beach, you get an inkling as to how it must feel to be in the know. If celeb-spotting is your thing, then you will not be disappointed here, and as we are all in the same W bubble – mingle away.
Living the dream is definitely the thing to do, and The Residences at W South Beach is the place to lay your head while dreaming. The Residence is modern, elegant and shall we say, very W. But even taste makers have to eat, and with the famed Mr. Chow restaurant as well as chef Andrew Carmellini’s take on the American dining experience, The Dutch, you are sure to be delighted. The Living Room bar, brings it all together in an experience that is akin to being a fashion jet setter, sipping on mojitos. Now if all this Jet setting and party-peopling isn’t your cup of tea, don’t hate; participate! Take the elevator, (yes the elevator) to the rooftop tennis and basketball courts. It just doesn’t get cooler than thisºoh wait, it does! We are taking W, and we are taking Miami! This is like fish and water here folks–take a walk into your room and look out the windows, yeah you guessed it; an ocean and it’s all yours to view.

JK PLACE CAPRI : Where you will feel that much closer to Heaven.
What is there not to love about Italy; the culture, the romance, the music, the food, and definitely the magic
espressos! It is as if they have something not only in the water but also in the air that allows the best
espressos to only be made in this country. I have seen people actually take the water and the beans,
bring them back to Montreal and use the exact machines, but to no success. The same must be said
about the JK Capri place; take this beauty of a boutique hotel, place it anywhere else and it would not
be the same at all.
Located in Via Province Mariana Grande Capri, a five star luxury boutique hotel overlooking the sea and
what else is there that can be said, Capri, Capri, Capri… there done.
There is also a JK place in Florence and as if one paradise is not enough, they have opened this next JK
in Capri. Imagine a beautiful 5 star boutique hotel but not in the Urban reality like the one in Florence,
but placed on one of the world’s most beautiful islands : Capri.
The interior is by Michele Bonan; classic urban meets country chic. Most rooms have beautiful balconies
facing the sea. JK Place is one of the only hotels in Capri that’s right on the ocean, as well as centrally
located. This is a no expenses spared, no corners cut, beauty of a hotel in an unbeatable location.
The Perks: incredible views, great food, central location, penthouse suite with panoramic view of the Gulf
of Naples, 22 rooms, perfect.
