Shou Sugi Ban House, a destination spa and wellness retreat in the Hamptons, is introducing an offering geared toward those who are working from home. Guests can enjoy a 25% reduced rate on stays from Sunday through Thursday during the months of November and December. The package includes a daily morning movement class and daily breakfast. Those who choose to work from the House for the full work week (Monday through Friday) will also enjoy a daily mid-day meditation as well as healthful snacks and beverages to fuel the workday. Guests who extend their stay through the weekend will receive an additional $200 spa credit.
The House reflects an appreciation of wabi-sabi principles in ethos and design – a perfect place for remote employees to achieve a new sense of work-life balance in a space that is free from ordinary distractions. Resting on three acres, the property’s 13 guest studios each have two private entrances to the outside, with no shared corridors or elevators, as well as a fireplace. Other amenities include: a private tennis court, saltwater swimming pool and outdoor plunge pools, thermal suite and rooftop deck. Should a guest need a more work-oriented space, there is a conference room that overlooks the Main Barn as well as projection capabilities.
Shou Sugi Ban House opened in May 2019 as a luxury destination spa and wellness retreat that embodies global wellness and healing arts practices. Surrounded by over 250 deciduous and evergreen trees, as well as 20,000 grasses of five different varieties, Shou Sugi Ban House is a private sanctuary outside of the everyday. Programming integrates holistic living, fitness, nutrition, advanced skin and body care, hydrotherapy, yoga, healing arts and meditation.
Personalized wellness journeys are led by resident experts to meet the individual intentions of each guest and create an intimate and transformative experience. Shou Sugi Ban House’s culinary philosophy is born from the belief that true health is grounded in nature, and food is medicine. Meals are designed by chef Mads Refslund, a co-founder of Noma in Copenhagen, the four-time winner of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants and two-time Michelin star recipient. Along with a resident nutritionist, he has created balanced and hyper-seasonal menus that are inventive, plant-rich and locally-sourced.
