Launched on an unsuspecting world in 1988, Cap Juluca is as impressive today as it was all those years ago. It’s theposter child for unbridled Caribbean glamour. The mile-long beach is as groomed as the high-profile names who drop in here regularly.
Of course the Cap Juluca story began with ground-breaking architectural designs, the domed pavilions and white facades taking their inspiration from Morocco and working brilliantly against the backdrop of bluer-than-blue Maundays Bay. The guest rooms are housed in 18 villas strung out along the beachfront, heady daydreams of dualbathtubs and private pools coming true in several of them.
And whilst the Frette linens, iPod docking stations and flatscreen TVs are recent refinements, the unblemished ocean views remain reassuringly the same. Yet Cap Juluca is no style-over-substance affair. Its restaurants have always been award-winners, the casual fare of Blue supported by the pan-Asian cuisine of Spice and fine ‘Eurobbean’ dining of Pimms.
For those wanting a holiday tee-time, nearby is the Championship Temenos Golf course designed by Greg Norman. Tennis, water sports, a fitness centre, an aqua golf driving range and a pool are available for those who feel guilty being horizontal all day. Those who have no problem with it at all can enjoy in-suite massages and afternoon sorbets on the beach.
