New in the Hamptons: The Capri Hotel, Nobu at the Capri and Cynthia Rowley

The post-Memorial Day pilgrimage out east has started and you know you'll be stuck on the Long Island Expressway. Focus on the positive: besides the beach, freshly renovated hotels, new shops and novel restaurants are awaiting you in the Hamptons.

The Capri Hotel was newly sold (together with its sisters the Atlantic and Bentley) to Jackie Mansfield (W Miami) and will house another one of sushiman’s Nobuyuki Matsuhira empire outpost. After a face-lift overseen by Meyer Davis Inc, with touches from business partner Steven Kamali (from the successful Surf Lodge in Montauk), a table is are already an impossible feat to achieve. Fashion designer Cynthia Rowley will add her chic perspective to the interiors as well as to her own boutique, adjacent to the hotel’s lobby. According to the company’s press release: “Rowley’s fashion-forward aesthetic will be seen in décor details within the Capri’s rooms, as well as in the Nobu restaurant, and an expansive poolside and event area, entitled The Bathing Club. With a sun-soaked indoor/outdoor lobby, oversize beach pillows and deck beds, and antiqued wood floors in each guestroom, the Capri’s aesthetic seeks to echo the relaxed, rustic atmosphere of its beachside property, yet provide a level of luxury and sophisticated service that is in tune with the Hamptons visitor. The Southampton boutique, the designer’s seventh U.S. retail location, follows last summer’s Montauk store, which is open yearly from Memorial Day through to the fall.”
