In 1926, Maude Gurney opened an inn in Montauk, in the town of East Hampton, New York. In the early 1950s, Gurney’s was a modest, 20-unit summer hotel like many others dotting the South Fork of Long Island. In 1956, it was purchased by a restaurant owner who would ultimately transform it into a celebrated resort: he began operating Gurney’s year-round in the 1960s, and added a spa in 1979.
In 2013, under new ownership, Gurney’s Montauk Resort & Seawater Spa began a multi-phase, multi-year refresh, solidifying the property’s position as one of the Eastern Seaboard’s finest travel destinations. We have brought the same brand of hospitality to Newport, Rhode Island, one of New England’s premier seafaring villages. Located on Goat Island, Gurney’s Newport Resort & Marina is connected to downtown Newport by a causeway or a short water taxi ride through Newport Harbor. Rich in history, Newport offers an array of attractions, events, and amusements.
Like our Montauk sister, Gurney’s Newport Resort & Marina features guestrooms and suites with water views, plentiful and diverse indoor and outdoor event venues, waterfront dining, a luxurious spa, and our philosophy of service: to accommodate each guest personally. We invite you to visit us soon.
