Highs & Lows

  • The heated pool. It's 84-degrees and open utill 8pm.

  • Sculpture garden on the back lawn with pieces from L.A. street artist Rick Rock and Brooklyn-based studio, Chiaozza.

  • Private ocean access and cozy bean bag loungers.

  • Plastic toiletry products. So many hotels are going largely plastic-free, but we still see these plastic minis in far too many properties.

Important Bits

  • Type

    Boutique Hotel

  • Vibe

    Laid-back and beachy

  • Location

    An oasis in the center of it all

  • Rooms

    30

  • Arrival Experience

    Seamless. Bags were brought to our room (number 27) where Hero's signature In the Pink rose was on ice.

  • Future Forward

    Hero hosts beach cleanups in partnership with The Surfrider Foundation and Oceanic Global. The property is mostly plastic free but still uses plastic toiletry bottles. They feature rotating local artwork at reception and in the back garden.

  • Music

    A rotating collection of eclectic summery sounds. The live Cuban guitarist is a highlight.

  • Year Opened

    2016

  • Designed By

    Curious Yellow NYC

  • Health & Wellness

    One of the best pools in The Hamptons. Heated at 84 degrees every day. There is no gym but Montauk itself is a fitness playground so there is really no need for a gym. Surf, hike, or take the hotel's complimentary bikes out for a cruise.

  • Food

    Full bar and light bites / barbeques for guests. Free smores every night around the fire pits.

  • Bar, Events & Nightlife

    Hero Beach Club is the anti-Surf Lodge. The beautiful garden is activated on a more low-key scale, with more intimate dinners, barbecues and a laid-back bar and pool scene.

  • Minibar & Retail

    Just Water featured in rooms and a small retail area at reception with t-shirts & apparel. I love the Smiley Hoodie ($100).

  • Accessibility

    Hero Beach Club is 100% compliant with the American's With Disabilities Act.

  • Pet Friendly

    There is one room designated for pets.

  • Children

    Yes

  • Price

    It's Hamptons pricing. Avoid peak summer rates by visiting in spring or fall.
