Spa Roundup 2012 - Gurney’s Marine Magic
A spa-cation by the sea is closer than you think
Long Island Pulse Magazine
Growing up on the East End, I’ve always loved Montauk. Among all our special Long Island places, Montauk’s beautiful beaches make it a standout. And me being me, no getaway would be complete without a super spa for some truly pampered relaxation. We booked a room at Gurney’s Inn Resort Spa and Conference Center, a perfect choice for our brief respite, and set off on the scenic drive to “The End.”

Season on the Edge-Montauk Style
My two hotels of choice are Ocean Beach Resort and Gurney’s Inn. When I go to Montauk alone just to fish and get away, I stay at Ocean Beach Resort, which is really a motel, but it’s on a great stretch of beach for fishing. Another benefit is it’s in walking distance from Paulie’s Tackle Shop.Ocean Beach Resort is a simple, low frills kind of place. Gurney’s Inn is a resort. If you are traveling with someone who’s not a fisherperson then Gurney’s Inn is a great choice. It’s on the beach and has lots to do for the non-fisherperson.

Three Great Places to Take the Waters
SpiritualityHealth.com March - April 2012
We are drawn to the sea for different reasons. My father came here to deep-sea fish in the 1950s — and smartly so. Montauk, located on the easternmost tip of Long Island, is home to the largest recreational and commercial fishing fleet in the state of New York and claims to have more saltwater fishing records than any other port in the world. Deriving its name from the Montaukett tribe who lived in the area, Montauk is dripping with history — Indians, pirates, buried treasure, tycoons of all types — and boasts the state’s first lighthouse, authorized by George Washington in 1792.

Sue enjoyed several pampering sessions, including a massage (OK, I had one too). The spa also offers saltwater shots. Nick Monte had one every day and lived to 90. The pampering made us feel like stars. And for three glorious days, we did live the dream.

I've come to this place to experience the only spa in the continental United States that offers authentic thalassotherapy with fresh seawater. Before I share my experience, let's talk about thalassotherapy. The word "thalassotherapy" was coined in 1869 by Dr. De la Bonnardiere, a doctor from Arcachon, France by combining the Greek word "thalassa" meaning sea and "therapeia" meaning to treat medically. Thalassotherapy is the use of seawater and seaweed to encourage an exchange of minerals to rejuvenate and heal the body. There is a synergy between the ocean and us.

Sea Water Spa at Gurney’s Inn

DiscoverSpas.com, National - June 2009
I am strolling on the wide beach in front of my room at Gurney’s Inn on the eastern tip of Long Island. The fog has almost burned off. The sky is clear, the air is cool, and the sun is warm. My intention for a brisk walk has evaporated. My attention is drawn to the many small, colorful stones that have been perfectly polished by waves and sand and have been generously scattered all over the beach. ... I will look at them and remember this beach, this time, this sun, this sky, the wee trace of fog, the seawater spa treatments and the child within.
