It takes more than Insta-inspiring views and high thread counts to become part of the exclusive hospitality portfolio at J.MAK. This innovative company dives deep into beach resorts, city hotels, and tented camps—as well as its collection of unique villas and other partners—to ensure that, in addition to world-class amenities and service, each has a unique personality. It’s why a J.MAK hotel won’t be just a “stay,” but a truly exceptional experience.

He might be a native New Yorker living in the same apartment he grew up in — with a 3,000 square foot terrace it's not hard to see why — but Jon Makhmaltchi is a jet setting globe trotter who his taken his J.MAK Hospitality brand to new heights.
Earlier this month, J.MAK Hospitality announced Jeff Sirota (now known as Sir.J) as the newest member of its team. Sir.J will extend his in-depth knowledge and network to J.MAK Hospitality’s clientele of global jetsetters.
