Review

Gurney’s Newport opened in the summer of 2017 to much fanfare, partly because of its sister property’s popularity, and partly because Newport was in need of a proper family-friendly resort. And Gurney’s delivers on both accounts.

A sprawling complex of 10 acres, Gurney’s is a destination in itself, comprised of an outdoor saltwater pool, spa with fitness center and salon, kids’ club, marina and sailing school and multiple restaurants. The property was designed by Peter Max Bowden, the architect behind several trendy venues including the Aria in Las Vegas. Crisp, nautical and sleek, the overall character of the hotel is decidedly polished, with clean lines, muted fabrics, marble surfaces and dark wooden furniture. The 257 guest rooms and 18 suites are likewise sophisticated, and each has a view of the water. Families should opt for one of the bi-level suites, which offer a more residential feel, with large living areas and balconies; while couples will appreciate the rooms’ plush touches, like jet-stream tubs, luxury bath products and high-tech stereos.

Accommodations aside, the real draw of Gurney’s is the scene, and the common spaces are constantly abuzz with visitors congregating around the resort’s outdoor pool and several restaurants. The Pineapple Club is Newport’s closest thing to a “dayclub,” comprised of sleek cabanas and daybeds, where seafood, cocktails and light bites are served poolside to the sounds of a live DJ. However, Scarpetta is the reason many come to Gurney’s, and for good reason, as the restaurant is just as excellent as its sister eatery of the same name in Manhattan. Elevated Italian food is the name of the game, which is a concept attempted by many but mastered by few. Scarpetta serves Italian classics with a gourmet twist: for starters, mouthwatering burrata is served with pickled eggplant and asparagus, tuna tartare is complemented by preserved truffle. Entrees include exquisite fish and beef dishes, but the pasta is the main event, with options including pappardelle with braised lamb shank and bone marrow ravioli. Sommeliers advise on wine pairings and return once or twice to discuss the result, providing an allover festive dining experience.

With so many amenities, the operation at Gurney’s is impressive, and therefore disruptive, to Newport’s otherwise laid-back scene. There are several event spaces, and the beach club lends itself to the bachelor party crowd. But for those who don’t mind a “scene,” the atmosphere and location cannot be beat: at night, string lights illuminate the wraparound deck, visible from Narragansett Bay, and guests and visitors congregate around the fire pits, admiring the panoramic views of the water and Jamestown Bridge.

Who Should Stay

Those looking for a full-service resort experience (including a kids’ club and family-friendly amenities) within a short driving distance of Newport proper.
