About This Property:

A far cry from the sceney, rosé-filled resorts of Montauk, and a departure, still, from the cozy hotels of the rest of the Hamptons, Water Mill’s Shou Sugi Ban House is a retreat unlike any other. The 13-room wellness property, which is set on three acres right off of Montauk Highway, feels a world away from the crowds of the Hamptons: the zen retreat was inspired by Japan, where one of the owners lived, and it has much more in common with the country’s peaceful ryokans than a glitzy beach hotel. Located next door to the acclaimed Parrish Art Museum, Shou Sugi Ban House will also appeal to art and design lovers with its meticulously planned grounds and interior design. The property itself has Japanese gardens, winding rock pathways and an eight-ton buddha sculpture from Bali, and the facilities and rooms feature a neutral color scheme and minimalist aesthetic. The rooms are centered around a small pool, and have floor-to-ceiling windows, sleek furnishings, gas fireplaces, indoor and outdoor showers and either a hinoki ofuro (Japanese soaking tubs) or regular bathtub.

The daily schedule here is flexible, but might include a morning tea ceremony and meditation, a barre or HIIT class at the fitness pavilion, a massage and facial at the spa, afternoon yoga and a sound bath ceremony in the evening. Plus, you get to savor incredible meals, thanks to a culinary program that was designed by two-Michelin-starred chef Mads Refslund, the co-founder of Noma in Copenhagen. In addition to the main building—a beautiful, soaring space where meals take place and there is a lounge area—Shou Sugi Ban House has a workout facility where classes are offered daily and a five–treatment room spa with an infrared sauna and hydrotherapy pools. What really sets Shou Sugi Ban House apart, however, are the more holistic health experiences, like a post-dinner sound bath ritual, meditative guided beach walk, holotropic breathwork class and the grounding tea ceremonies, which happen every morning. It’s during these introspective moments that guests can focus on whatever brought them to Shou Sugi Ban House in the first place—and hone the skills and techniques needed to bring a piece of their newfound zen home.
