Time To Escape!

Tulum

Tulum quickly established itself as the antithesis of crowded tourist destinations like St. Bart’s and Miami. Instead, it has preserved its natural wonders and attracts travelers who like to be active. With pristine beach runs and cliff-side hikes, warm cerulean waters offering kite surfing, paddle boarding and board surfing, the area has effortlessly become a beacon for yoga and other retreats. There’s plenty for those who just need a relaxing getaway, too—an abundance of small beaches tucked away from crowded areas, and Yaan Wellness Energy Healing Spa is a favorite sanctuary. Lounge on the soft, sandy beaches, explore the Mayan ruins, and then relish an afternoon siesta before your next yoga class. Tulum may be an international destination, but its appeal is timeless: natural wonders best enjoyed among simple pleasures. 

 

Bali

The Indonesian island of Bali is a hub of international creativity, responsible for fueling a renaissance in art, nature, exoticism and spirituality. The coastal towns of Seminyak, Kuta and Nusa Dua all boast stunning beaches and nightlife, while the central town of Ubud—at the core of the current wellness movement—appeals for its lifestyle and health offerings. For a unique, one of a kind experience, stay at a private villa at Villa Campuhan. Nestled along the shore of East Bali, this thoughtful property features stunning architecture and natural beauty native to the island. As you head north, stop by the Sacred Monkey Forest Ubud Sanctuary, as well as the many museums and ancient temples along the way. Make your final destination the John Hardy Ubud Workshop & Showroom, where guests can tour the open-air design center and watch artisans at work, learning how we hand-weave our Classic Chain jewelry. As part of the tour, visitors join our staff for a traditional Balinese lunch served under the shade of a Banyan tree. The Workshop & Showroom reflect greater Bali: a destination filled with artisan-crafts, authentic culture and beauty with meaning. 

 

Capri

Capri, once a sleepy Mediterranean port, is a favorite European island getaway—long a beacon for glamorous stars such as Jacqueline Onassis, Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor, Rita Hayworth, Brigitte Bardot and Sophia Loren. In recent years, guests have included Beyoncé, Rihanna, Naomi Campbell, Reese Witherspoon, Cameron Diaz and Zoe Saldana. Though April and May are not as warm as the summer months, it’s a beautiful time to visit, when you can capture Capri closer to its native state. Since you’ll be skipping the crowds, you’ll best see the island’s riches by boat and by hike. Paddle through the ancient Blue Grotto sea cave, take a leisurely al fresco lunch at Il Riccio nearby, and enjoy the bright sights, sounds and tastes of local seafood and limoncello liqueur free of competing tourists. Even though it hosts a quarter-million visitors every year, Capri retains an undeniable coastal resort charm.

 

Antigua

Antigua blends an energetic Caribbean lifestyle with tranquility along its shores. It’s said that Antigua and its sister island, Barbuda, have a beach for every day of the year, most of them waiting to be discovered—making this a must-visit destination for travelers ready to relax. If it’s total isolation you seek, book a room at the secluded Dian Bay Resort & Spa, or seek out the luxurious Carlisle Bay, set within a rain forest on an isolated beach that’s helmed by British hotelier Gordon Campbell Gray. Boat enthusiasts won’t want to miss English Harbour and Falmouth, both famous yachting and sailing destinations that host an international regatta during Antigua Sailing Week in late April through early May.

Cara Delevingne is back for Spring 2015

Cara_Delevingne_John_Hardy_Spring_2015

Cara Delevingne is back for Spring 2015! Cara's unique beauty and playful irreverence make Cara truly One Of A Kind, just like our handcrafted jewelry. Shot in Bali, the campaign captures the bold and authentic essence of the brand. The heritage of artisanship, married with a deep meaning and beauty behind each design, are a part of the foundation that John Hardy was built on.

Cara wears Classic Chain bracelets with Black Sapphire and Diamond Pave. Stay tuned for the launch of the full Spring 2015 Collection.

On Location at Black Sand Beach

The beaches of Bali are some of the most renowned in the world, especially black sand beaches. Black sand originates from volcanoes (in this case, Mount Batur and Mount Agung) and are actually tiny fragments of lava.
 
The backdrop made perfect sense for the campaign shoot. As the legend goes, a mythical dragon called the Naga, inspiration of the famed John Hardy line by the same name, would dive from the volcano into the sea at twilight to visit his most prized possession, the Pearl. At dawn, the Naga would return with water cascading off his scales and into the rice fields for a bountiful harvest, providing love, prosperity and protection to the people of Bali.

Behind-the-Scenes with Cara Delevingne

 

 

 

From the pool at the Amankila to the Black Sand Beach, Cara Delevingne and crew traveled through Bali, capturing the natural beauty and timeless appeal of the island.
 
Here are exclusive behind-the-scenes Polaroids that capture what went on in between shots.

On Location at the JH Compound

We are proud to describe our jewelry as One of a Kind, made one piece at a time, each by hand. As one of the last companies to bring inspiration to life through sketches, wax molds and works of art in silver and gold, all by hand, John Hardy continues to preserve traditional Balinese jewelry-making techniques from the 19th century.
 
Cara Delevingne visited the JH Compound to work with our designers and artisans to make her own Chain. She was inspired by the experience: “Meeting all the actual people who make the jewelry and seeing how happy they are…I want to live there,” Cara shares. “I was like, ‘Can you hire me, please?’ I did jewelry-making in school, but I was very bad. Here, you can feel the love in the jewelry and you feel like someone has actually put their heart into it.”

On Location at the Amankila

The Amankila (meaning peaceful hill) is a breathtaking destination, a must-visit resort in Bali. The ethos of Aman is founded on “simple luxury,” and offers an “enriching, enlightening and rewarding experience.” All of Aman’s properties are perfect for adventurers who like to escape to exotic places, interact with foreign cultures, relax and encounter nature at its finest.
 
The Amankila villas, pool and black sand beach served as the backdrop of the John Hardy Fall 2014 campaign with Cara Delevingne. Awarded top slots in the Conde Nast Traveller UK and Conde Nast Traveler US Readers Choice in The World, Asia and Beach Hotels in 2013 and 2014, the Amankila reflects the essence of John Hardy. It truly is One Of A Kind.
