What Jaj Loves
September 2019 Issue

Dear Friends,

One of the many 'perks' of our job is hearing the lovely stories and praises sung about our JCR properties. From the travel advisors who visit - and almost instantaneously - vet them. To the clients (hotel guests) whom advisors send to experience them. Always the feedback is positive; the accolades high.

In this issue, we share a few of the comments and impressions voiced by travelers to our properties. Enjoy.

Warm Regards,
Jaj and Anthony

THE GREENWICH WOWS WITH NEW GUEST GALLERY

Greenwich Hotel

The Greenwich Hotel is known for its low-key, sublime presence. So we especially love the hotel's new "Guest Gallery" featuring insights and images posted on social media by adoring guests. Including four-legged Vinnydoodle who writes: "My first trip to the big apple. Got my own bed, bowls and treats! This place is pawsome."

BODYHOLIDAY EQUALS BLISS

Body Holiday

"This is my third visit to this wonderful place. Stayed in the luxury ocean front rooms which were lovely. This is the best resort in the world if you are looking for a holiday that combines relaxation classes, fabulous spa treatments, amazing sports facilities and fitness classes. The food is also healthy and there are five great restaurants to choose from. Thank you BodyHoliday, I hope to be back again very soon." Us too.

VELAA PRIVATE ISLAND A WOW

Velaa Private Island

"After visiting the Maldives five times, we didn't think it would be possible to experience the WOW factor - we were wrong. Everything about this island and the people are a WOW. Our beach villa was stunning, our home for six nights. The attention to detail was out of this world and spotlessly clean. There was even a menu for our pillows. The pool was gorgeous, as was the white powdery sand like no other island we have visited. The spa was outstanding, the best full-body massage I've ever had and my daughter loved the snow room. Relaxing in the Jacuzzi, staring across the backdrop of the magnificent Indian Ocean - like a dream."

CHILD-FRIENDLY TIERRA ATACAMA

Tierra Atacama Hotel and Spa

"Every detail of our trip was carefully taken care of - from an open discussion on the best excursion options, to a warm welcome every time we came back to the hotel. Food is amazing; rooms spectacular. Special detail - our eight-year old son joined us. He was always considered by the staff; his needs and expectations also counted as valuable. Well done, Tierra team."

CLAYOQUOT'S JOYFUL STAFF

Clayoquot Wilderness Resort

"Just returning from Clayoquot and still marveling at the level of service, the exquisite beauty and the sophistication of the food - luxury and adventure rolled into one. Our experience was memorable from the first minute with champagne and sparkling lemonade awaiting our arrival (post horse-drawn carriage from the seaplane dock). The guides were incredibly enthusiastic, accommodating and caring. Each of them overjoyed to be there and knowledgeable about everything from bears to orcas to paddle-boarding."

JL BAR RANCH DELIVERS ON SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY

JL Bar Ranch Resort and Spa

"We just had our annual company retreat at the JL Bar Ranch, Resort & Spa. Our international team of 27 came together for five nights in this mostly remote part of Texas. Southern hospitality is an understatement for how they run the show. From welcoming us at 2:30 am with smiling faces to making sure all the bags were loaded as we left, the people here are what make JL Bar Ranch, Resort & Spa a truly unique and special place."

KATIKIES MYKONOS ROMANCES THE PRESS

Katikies Mykonos

The media loves Katikies Mykonos as evidenced by Robb Report: "Looking around, it's easy to see why the hotel's designers eschewed Mykonos's quintessential bohemian flair in lieu of a simple, clean palette where large swaths of white are only sporadically broken up by Aegean blue. The sea views don't get much better than this."

SASAAB SIMPLY AUTHENTIC

The Safari Collection: Sasaab

"Nothing compares to relaxing in your private plunge pool while families of elephants, baboons and impalas roam by. We saw a vast amount of wildlife and learned so much about the fascinating flora and fauna from our incredible Samburu guide. Meeting the Samburu people, visiting a neighboring village, and experiencing a traditional dance ceremony are memories we will always treasure. We started missing Sasaab before we left and long to visit again. A special thank you to the Sasaab family."

HOTEL LE TOINY DAZZLES HONEYMOONERS

Hotel Le Toiny

"My wife and I spent three nights in the Signature suite at Hotel Le Toiny for our honeymoon. From beginning to end, we were treated and felt like absolute royalty. The accommodations are breathtaking, the staff was friendly, helpful, and extremely responsive. Attention to detail and a true customer-first attitude made Hotel Le Toiny a place we will want to revisit for our anniversaries to come. Thank you so much."

GLENAPP CASTLE A BLEND OF HISTORY AND EXPLORATION

Glenapp Castle

As we get to know better our new Scottish castle, we delight in reading this glowing review from The Telegraph: "More of a country house than a fortress, [Glenapp] offers fine dining and country sporting pursuits. There's an all-weather tennis court, a croquet lawn, plus wellies, umbrellas and rain jackets by the front door for exploring the grounds. Boat hire is also available for sea fishing. A spa by the sea is a short drive away, as are the golf courses of Turnberry and Royal Troon." Divine.

GOLDEN DOOR'S LOVING SPIRIT

Golden Door

"When I arrived here on Sunday, I was totally burned out - my body was exhausted, my stress levels were maxed out and I was feeling depressed and shut down. Today I'm feeling like a completely new person. I'm energized, rested and feeling like a million dollars. Most importantly the deep fog has lifted its veil and my spirit feels strengthened and my heart feels light. I'm feeling such joy and gratitude. On my labyrinth walk, my stone said 'love,' which just sums things up perfectly. I feel loved. Thank you to the wonderful staff here."

SHEEN FALLS A GUEST FAVORITE

Sheen Falls

"Spectacular. Amazing location. Great food and professional friendly staff. From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed, even though reception seemed very busy as we arrived at the peak check-in time. There are so many things to do around Kenmare as well as within the hotel - we especially loved the 'hawk walk.' Liam is one of a kind and definitely a highlight of our trip. The grounds around the hotel are breathtaking. We have most definitely found our favorite place."

HAPPY ON LAUCALA ISLAND

Laucala Island

"Thank you for hiring people who are personally happy. Their happiness exudes - allowing them to be themselves and thus allowing us to have an amazing Laucala experience. This week warmed our souls, rejuvenated our minds and reminded us how kindness feels. Laucala's motto "Be You" inspires us now back in the States hard at work....we are even better because of those on Laucala Island."

EXCLUSIVELY BALLYFIN

Ballyfin

"While being housed in great elegance, it was the manner in which we were treated during every moment of our stay that was the icing. [Ballyfin] provided the canvas to give 35 people a quite remarkable experience that will stay in our minds for the rest of our lives. Thank you."

KUDOS TO LAYAN RESIDENCES BY ANANTARA

Layan Residences by Anantara

"Layan Residences is quite special, and our butler was a huge help during our stay - bonding with our daughter in a short period of time. Our butler's presence truly enhanced our family's experience, and was also a huge help in coordinating our onward transfer." Love.

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY EUSTATIA ISLAND

Eustatia Island

"The island is completely off-the-grid and self-sustaining with solar-generated power, desalinated water production and a farm-to-table agriculture program. Also, using environmentally friendly methods, the Eustatia team has managed to eliminate 95 percent of the mosquitoes on island and is now helping the neighboring islands do the same. Even the sunscreen is organic."

HOTEL ESPRIT SAINT GERMAIN HOME AWAY FROM HOME

Esprit Germain

"We looked forward to the daily delicious pre-game breakfast in the mornings and afternoon tea to rest our weary feet in the Library Lounge. A complimentary bar of snacks (including jellybeans for my daughter) and drinks awaiting us after long days of touring and shopping was much appreciated and made this feel like our home (albeit a really nice Parisian one) away from home."
