Belmond Cap Juluca
Cap Juluca is one of those resorts that die-hard regulars insist should never be changed. But those unimaginative bores will eat their words this month when they see the resort’s new and improved look under Belmond hotels. Not to worry, the property’s iconic Moorish architecture will still be intact (after all, there are some things that really are too good
to improve). But inside those whitewashed walls will be plenty of welcome surprises, including more contemporary interiors in the rooms and long-needed updates to the former staid style of the openair lobby. The old guard is sure to fall in line for the new look—and they might even come to love executive chef Andrew Gaskin’s innovative culinary program, too. A major step up for the island’s dining scene, the new offerings will include an offshoot of Venice’s Cip’s Club and a Peruvian-fusion restaurant that draws from Belmond’s hotels in Cusco and Lima.
