Boutique Hotels in Amazing Settings
From the eco-friendly Alila to the luxurious Joie de Vivre (JDV), Commune boasts five upmarket hotel brands. Present in Monterey, JDV hotels comprises the largest collection of boutique properties in California, with locations across America. Founded in San Francisco in 1987, Joie de Vivre now has more than 30 boutique hotels, each individually designed to reflect their location. From hip city hotels to 500-acre ranch resorts, JDV hotels are imaginatively-designed and full of personality with bold designs and vibrant colours. Many of JDV's properties are home to restaurants and bars that offer hip hangouts for locals and hotel guests.
Commune Hotels’ Luxury Facilities
JDV hotels pull out all the stops to dazzle guests with their stand-out facilities, such as golf courses, tennis courts, salt-water swimming pools, hilltop yoga platforms, hiking trails, spas and fine-dining restaurants. Settle into your king-sized beds in your swish room which might also have a private deck, Travertine fireplace, 42” flat-screen TV with Blu-ray player, a Keurig coffee maker, blackout curtains and free Wi-Fi. To satisfy the eco-conscious, JDV hotels offer in-room, eco-friendly energy management systems, too. If you have kids in tow, some JDV hotels offer babysitting services and a children's club for an extra fee. There are also on-site playgrounds, a children's swimming pool, and free cribs or infant beds. If you fancy some respite away from children, though, that are some adults-only JDV hotels available.
