At a Glance
Located five miles from sister hotel Gurney’s Montauk Resort & Seawater Spa, Gurney’s Star Island offers a laidback waterfront escape with plenty of activities and amenities.
Gurney’s Star Island commands 15 acres on the shores of Lake Montauk, just a 15-minute drive from the center of town yet blissfully removed from the Hamptons fray. A relaxed, beachy vibe and a nautical charm prevail throughout the property, which is dotted with teak buildings and white umbrellas and encompasses 107 rooms, suites and villas; indoor and outdoor pools; a private beach; and three restaurants. The resort’s 232-slip marina is the largest in the Hamptons.
Accommodations are supremely comfortable and decorated simply in Gurney’s signature coastal color palette, including sea blue curtains and white linens with navy trims. All rooms have spacious rain showers and private patios or balconies, a perfect spot for a morning coffee. Standard Rooms, located on the edge of the marina, are convenient for sailors, while Waterview Rooms overlook the small lakefront beach. Courtyard Rooms are best for those looking for a quieter setting, removed from the bustle of the marina and beach. Contact Indagare to find the perfect room for you.
Delicious on-site dining options include the seafood-focused hot spot Showfish, the Italian café and pizzeria Il Forno and the seasonal Pool Club, serving frozen drinks and casual fare. Activities for all ages include boating, paddle boarding and kayaking, while children will love the Kids’ Marine Camp, where guests ages 12 and under can learn about marine life and the ecosystem of the surrounding lake and marsh. Beachgoers can enjoy the complimentary shuttle service to Gurney’s Montauk Resort & Seawater Spa, where Star Island guests have full access to the beach club. There is also a 24-hour fitness center on-property.
