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.

A Wild Dove (Closed)
90 2nd House Rd., Montauk
A Wild Dove is one of those rare-gem boutiques that truly reflects how we live right now. In other words, a store that marries lifestyle and fashion with ritual and wellness. A trip to A Wild Dove’s summer residency space might involve trying multiple pairs of Linda Farrow x The Attico aviators, replenishing your Moon Juice Sex Dust stock, splurging on a Live the Process playsuit, or buying a Caroline Robert’s sculpture. Moreover, store founder Lynn Levoy hosts a series of activations and panels like crystal workshops and meditation sessions for kids.
La Fin (Closed)
474 W. Lake Dr., Montauk
Tucked into the former Swallow East space, La Fin brings a touch of St. Tropez to the Montauk seafront. While chef and co-owner James Tchinnis cut his teeth at Le Cirque, the food at La Fin is simple, sustainably sourced from local farms, and healthy-ish. The setting, on the other hand, has a touch of that unmistakable Riviera glitz with plush turquoise seating and a stellar playlist. The morning menu is a light one, featuring juices, paleo muffins, and chia puddings. Dinner centers on oysters, seasonal seafood, and seriously good lobster toast.
Marram
21 Oceanview Trc., Montauk
Marram—the much-anticipated sibling to East Hampton’s Journey—is a beachfront surfer’s paradise. In place of the typical whitewashed coastal décor, Marram has a Santa Fe vibe, with poured concrete floors, textural furniture, and warm jute rugs. The whole place exudes cozy simplicity. It’s right on the Atlantic (hence the surfer’s paradise comment), the pool is bigger than most, s’mores around the firepits happen nightly, the on-site surf shop is stellar, and we want to buy all the Brian Bielmann photos that dot the walls.
