May 16, 2019 2:12pm
MONTAUK, N.Y., May 16, 2019 -- Gurney's Star Island Resort & Marina, the newest waterfront retreat in the Hamptons, has officially opened as the premier destination for summer getaways, seasonal boating and standout dining experiences. Home to the largest marina in the Hamptons, Gurney's Star Island is a luxury resort featuring preeminent guest accommodations, unique dining concepts including the highly anticipated Showfish restaurant, outdoor amenities and an array of private spaces for events centered around the water. Owned by George Filopoulos of Metrovest and Lloyd Goldman of BLDG Management, the opening of Gurney's Star Island marks the brand's third resort and second property in Montauk.
"Montauk is a market that is important to us personally and professionally, and we are thrilled to unveil a second location that extends the Gurney's experience out to Star Island while introducing a new type of stay in the marina setting," said owner George Filopoulos. "The opening of Gurney's Star Island is a testament to the growth of our brand, and we are committed to delivering an unparalleled resort lifestyle that appeals to hotel guests, visitors and locals alike."
The design of Gurney's Star Island stays true to the brand's coastal aesthetic and origin, led by designer Stella Abdoulin. Inspired by its nautical history, the resort showcases a neutral color palette and maritime elements through the 107 guest rooms and public spaces.
Creative Culinary Concepts
Gurney's Star Island Resort & Marina is home to four distinctive restaurants and bars helmed by executive chef Jeremy Blutstein. A Hamptons native, chef Blutstein highlights the bounty of the community throughout the resort's culinary program which is characterized by local product and seasonality.
Showfish, the resort's centerpiece seafood concept, is a fine-yet-engaging restaurant featuring a lobster aquarium and nine-foot seafood display. A mainstay of the locally-sourced menu is seafood caught daily by local fishermen and brought to the docks at Gurney's Star Island. Guests can select and tag their fresh catch of the day at the marina or choose their favorite fish and crustaceans directly from the seafood presentation at dinner time. Virtually all produce is sourced from farms on the east end, located within 20 miles of the property and prepared on display at the restaurant's "vegetable butchery." At Showfish Bar, inventive cocktails complement the restaurant's gastronomic direction, mirroring a focus on sustainability and localism.
Boasting sweeping marina views, chaise lounge chairs and live music, The Pool Club is the ideal place to sip, swim and relax during a leisurely day in the sun. Guests can enjoy craft cocktails, signature frozen drinks and poolside bites in a lively and jovial atmosphere. Meaning "the oven" in Italian, Il Forno Market prepares specialty gourmet pizzas, freshly baked goods, artisanal coffees and a variety of handcrafted sandwiches and salads. Il Forno also serve as a grab-and-go market for marina and hotel guests. Van Leeuwen at Gurney's Star Island, which is the beloved ice cream brand's first permanent hotel store, serves its core scoops along with signature Gurney's flavors in a whimsical setting.
In true Gurney's fashion, Gurney's Star Island is filled with amenities, programs and services offered to energize and maximize the guest experience. Multiple pools, a private beach with watersports and a Kid's Club focused on the marine ecosystem ensure endless activities for guests of all ages. Complimentary shuttle service grants full access to the nearby Gurney's Montauk Resort and its wide range of amenities including the iconic Seawater Spa and The Beach Club set on a 2,000-foot-long private sand beach, allowing guests to take advantage of the full Gurney's experience. Meanwhile, the concierge can arrange seamless transportation to Gurney's Newport Resort & Marina in Rhode Island via yacht and seaplane service, offering a scenic day trip while guaranteeing a return to Montauk in time for dinner at Showfish.
