A Trip to Montauk

Nestled at the tip of Long Island (and conveniently removed from the regular Hamptons scene), Montauk is renowned for its easygoing atmosphere and picture-perfect coastline. For my first visit I stayed at Gurney’s Inn – the recently renovated hotel perched in prime position atop the dunes above the beach. Aside from daily visits to the spa (which features one of the country’s only Olympic-sized seawater pools, plus a team of very talented masseurs), my daily ritual involved waking-up early to catch the sun while working out, followed by a quiet breakfast back in my room.

In terms of essentials, I packed to pamper. Aesop‘s Avid Explorer gift kit (which includes thisthisthis, and this) came in handy alongside a slew of regular favorites. M.E. Skin Lab‘s ridiculously luxe face mask was the perfect post-workout salve, while Dove’s body and face cleanser kept things efficient under the shower. I also like to travel with a full-sized candle t0 ensure things stay zen, to which Diptyque’s Oud is always safe bet.
