I have never been to Nantucket, but I know where I want to stay! The Nantucket, the island’s only luxury all-season destination resort which in January 2015 will unveil an entirely new wing of five Cottage Guest Suites.  The new wing suites, designed by Kevin O’Brien, will have a glamorous yet breezy coastal living vibe- the inspiration is a classic and aspirational beach home but with a twist.

The hotel is very geared up to wellness and will shortly launch The Art of Cabin Fever later this month until Spring 2015 – designed to bringing mind & body together through a cozy hunker down and hibernation program including everything from specially tailored massages in the boutique spa, mediation classes, daily yoga, heated outdoor hot tub with detox cocktails, healthy fondue by the outdoor fire pits, a fully stocked library in each room with specialist book recommendations, luxurious Marine Mer Sea bath experiences, an appointment with a nutritionist etc. It’s a unique take on the ever popular digital detox, perfect for guests to contemplate the year ahead and for mastering the art of mindfulness!

Lastly Spring will see the launch of “Sea For Yourself”- a one-of-kind island hopping experience for guests between The Nantucket hotel and the sister island resort (same owners) on Martha’s Vineyard, Winnetu Oceanside  – so guests can visit both properties and islands within the one trip.

This week is the famous island Christmas Stroll (Dec 4-7). With it’s seasonal fall and winter activities, off season is the ideal time to visit Nantucket free from the crowds and at a great price – discounted rates start at $175/night on weekdays and $350/night on weekends. While the exterior is classic Nantucket 1891, the nautical chic interiors feature all the modern conveniences to enjoy breezy coastal living.
