What Jaj Loves
Advisors Who Write
January 2018 Issue

Dear Friends,
Ever since experiencing our first swim-up bar years ago, we have been fans of creative pools, exotic signature drinks and chic bar aesthetics. Certainly our JCR collection is graced with all. Decadent, just-for-two private plunge pools. Spacious sea-melding-with-pool pools. Healing thalassotherapy pools. Our collection's bars, too, are magical. Each the perfect backdrop for mixing up gorgeous liquors and flower-infused concoctions.

In this issue, we kick off the new year by celebrating our favorite JCR 'watering holes.' Enjoy.

Warm Regards,
Jaj and Anthony

AUTHENTIC JAPANESE SPA AT THE GREENWICH

Greenwich Hotel

The Greenwich Hotel's Shibui Spa is not only Japanese-inspired. It's Japanese-authentic. The spa features a lantern-lit swimming pool and newly updated lounge - eloquently housed under the beams of a 250-year-old wood and bamboo farmhouse from Kyoto. The farmhouse was reconstructed in the spa by Japanese craftsmen - considered 'national treasures' in Japan– using wooden pegs and an ancient knot-tying technique. So beautiful.

LAKE KORA ALL ABOUT THE LAKES

Lake Kora

Lake Kora, as its name suggests, is all about the lake. Or rather three lakes. Since its days as a "Great Camp" when Manhattan's elite would escape to the Adirondacks, Lake Kora has served as a classic summer escape. Life slows here: enjoy a wooden canoe, pedal boat or ever-so-silent electric boat. Fish. Or simply jump off the dock and float. Summer living.
