The Hamptons Health & Beauty

Establishment neighborhood
Seawater Spa at Gurney’s
290 Old Montauk Hwy, Montauk
This classic resort right on the beach in Montauk recently redid their entire spa (along with the rest of the hotel and the Olympic-sized saltwater swimming pool, which uses sand-filtered water drawn from the sea). It’s gorgeous and spacious, and the oceanfront location makes the whole experience that much more relaxing. The facials (we especially love the Deep Sea Firming Gua Sha Facial) are incredible and combine potent skin care products, holistic methods, light therapy, lymphatic massage, and more to leave you contoured, smooth, and completely rejuvenated.

Sollis Health
760 Montauk Hwy., Water Mill
A 24/7 medical concierge may sound a touch over-the-top, but when you consider the reality of summer activities (watersports, tennis, hiking), the ongoing pandemic, and the accident-prone nature of the under-18 set, immediate access to excellent doctors summons a sigh a relief. The Sollis team can handle 90% of the maladies a typical ER treats, each medical center has state-of-the-art technology and amenities, house calls are no problem, and the wait time is usually zero. Naturally, top-notch service like this comes at a cost—plus a membership fee. But, for those seeking genuinely discreet treatment, medical access, and emergency care, at home or at one of the Sollis centers in major US cities, this concierge service can’t be beat.
Erika Bloom Pilates Water Mill (Closed)
760 Montauk Hwy., Unit 2D, Water Mill
Fans of Erika Bloom have come to rely on her workouts in New York, Turks and Caicos, and Los Angeles. She’s added the Hamptons to the mix, with a studio tucked into a quaint, bright cottage in Water Mill plus a summer pop-up at the Amagansett barn. Some of Bloom's best instructors rotate through the East End, curating super-personalized routines that integrate pilates, yoga, the Alexander technique (for improved posture), the Feldenkrais method (for a better mind-body connection), and weight training. They're big on breathwork and alignment as a foundation for any practice, which means meditation is just as much a part of a session as working up a sweat. There's also an on-site boutique stocked with products from Tata Harper, Alo Yoga, and Sakara Life. Images courtesy of Chris Fanning.
