Bel­mond Cap Ju­luca

Robb Report (USA) - - CARIBBEAN: BACK IN BUSINESS -

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.
