Daily Pampering: Beach resort just 30 miles from NYC

Whether you live in New York City or are just visiting, it may interest you to know that there’s a luxury beach resort less than 30 miles away.

Just west of the Hamptons in Long Island is the Allegria Hotel, which boasts “oceanfront luxury in Manhattan’s backyard.” The LEED certified hotel consists of 112 guestrooms and 31 suites, an oceanfront lounge (called The Oceanfront Lounge) and a restaurant by Chef Todd Jacobs, conveniently located on Long Beach, just 15 minutes from JFK International Airport.

The hotel oozes beach elegance with a white sand, driftwood and periwinkle color scheme, limestone-finished bathrooms, Egyptian cotton towels, custom-made 400 thread count Parisian sheets and a dazzling ballroom with silver leaf ceiling tiles and 73 Kazumi glass chandeliers. On the roof, you’ll find an ocean view fitness center and yoga studio.

Services include a Beach Concierge — a modern spin on the “Cabana Boy” — who can assist you with beach chairs, umbrellas, towels, refreshments, surf rentals, volleyball games and other beach activities.

So, tell your spouse or significant other you’ve just come up with the cheapest luxe vacation idea ever, rent a Zipcar, and go get tan. Room rates start at $250 per night. Click here to book.
