What Jaj Loves
July 2019 Issue

Dear Friends,

Doors. Archways. Entryways. Gates. Structurally, doors are a necessity - a means of going in and out; creating seclusion and privacy. But architecturally, doors are symbolic. Historic. Colorful. Handcrafted. And beautifully artistic.

In our August issue, we step inside the varied and stunning doors of our JCR collection. Including two new doors - Glenapp Castle, Scotland and JL Bar Ranch, Resort & Spa, Texas - both recent additions to the JCR hotel family.

Enjoy. And happy summer. We look forward to seeing many of you in Las Vegas.

Warm Regards,
Jaj and Anthony

GOLDEN DOOR POEM TRIBUTE

Golden Door

The Golden Door's iconic - and yes, golden - doors transform every guest who walks through them. As captured in this poem excerpt by Jeff Moss, a writer/composer of Sesame Street.

"On the other side of the Door
I don't have to go alone.
If you come too, we can sail tall ships
And fly where the wind has flown.
And wherever we go, it is almost sure
We'll find what we're looking for
Because everything can happen
On the other side of the Door."

RECYCLED AND REPURPOSED AT THE GREENWICH

Greenwich Hotel

Every guest door at The Greenwich Hotel was carved from recycled American Heart Pine wood. And finished with a hand-cast bronze knob. Stunning. Added touch: a single red rope knot placed around the knob indicates privacy.

BREAKFAST AT GIRAFFE MANOR

The Safari Collection: Giraffe Manor

Daybreak in Nairobi. A herd of 12 Rothschild giraffes make their morning commute - through the garden and to the manor - in search for breakfast. Peeking her neck through the large, arched mahogany door into the hallway, is bright-eyed Daisy - often one of the first giraffes to wish guests a good morning. In return for tasty treats. Love.

THE HIDDEN DOORS OF BALLYFIN

Ballyfin

Ballyfin's original owners, the Coote family, loved the idea of hidden doors and passages. The entrance to the Sir Charles Coote bedroom is hidden away behind a secret door in the hotel's stair hall - the ultimate hideaway as no one will ever know where guests' bedroom is. Fun.

HOTEL LE TOINY'S MYSTERIOUS NUREYEV VILLA

Hotel Le Toiny

Hotel Le Toiny's Nureyev Villa, created in the 1960s by Russian ballet dancer Rudolph Nureyev, is one of the most mysterious villas on the island. And its massive gates set the stage. Legend is of dancing and floating above the waves; hence Nureyev constructed a floating deck complete with private pool, Jacuzzi and steam bath - surrounded entirely by ocean. Wow.
