What Jaj Loves
February 2020 Issue

Dear Friends,

February, the shortest month of the year, is also the most love-filled. And certainly, our JCR properties - with their intimate dinners for two; lavishly romantic turndowns - are all about Valentine's Day romance. But our collection also understands the intrinsic value of self-care. Of taking a moment (or week) to breathe, reconnect with one's self or perhaps a bestie. To just be. And so this issue, typically our 'romance edition,' is dedicated to solo travel, self-love, and friendship.

Happy Valentine's Day. The day of love.

Warm Regards,
Jaj and Anthony

SINGLES CONNECT AT KATIKIES

Katikies Santorini

Beware when running from love. It may just catch up. That's the experience of solo travelers Kevin and Brooke who - years ago - came separately to Katikies Santorini. During a boat tour of the island, the two felt a spark. That evening, they had dinner together and one year later, returned to the hotel where they became engaged. They married the next year (at Katikies) and have returned every year since. A true love story.
