A surfer vibe with contemporary art and live music on weekends
This converted Tudor-style property is classic on the outside and modern on the inside. The unique, laid-back vibe has just enough sophistication to make some city slickers dream of quitting their jobs and joining the Montauk surf culture. The rear of the lobby leads to a canopied walkway, which turns into the organic restaurant and bar with indoor and outdoor seating. Expansive grounds include a decent-size pool and lounge areas -- some more private than others. The joint cranks out the fun (and noise) on summer weekends, and the bartender (crowd depending) will continue serving drinks well into the early morning.
On a quiet road off Montauk Highway within short driving distance to beaches and village
A 120-mile drive from New York City, the Sole East Resort is located on the outskirts of Montauk but within walking distance to the village and beaches. The Montauk area is spread out, and there are many attractions within a 10-mile radius, so a car is recommended. Otherwise, there are taxi services in town, and the hotel provides rental bike cruisers for shorter trips.
This 2.5-acre property offers 60 renovated bungalow-style rooms in the hotel section, and seven Cabana Suites in the garden
The decor is modern beach-chic with a touch of surfer theme thrown in for good measure. Rooms do not contain phones, fridges, irons and hairdryers, but the latter two are available upon request.
Thriving weekend pool scene, lounge areas, and a full-service restaurant
This American Tudor-style hotel in Montauk is a summer hot spot that maintains an essence of “cool” without pretension. The 61 rooms and suites have a surf-chic vibe and appeal to the Manhattan set with amenities such as high-quality linens and Aveda products. Though not directly on the beach, expansive grounds include lawn games, daybeds, hammocks and an organic restaurant and bar. The outdoor pool -- with live music on weekends -- is popular, and the party scene has been known to carry on until the wee hours of the morning.
