Shou Sugi Ban House is a Japanse-style wellness retreat on Long Island. The Hamptons is just down the road. It’s comprised of 13 cedar studios, a main house, a hydrotherapy spa and wellness barn. All are connected by pebble paths. The minimalist style is very chic. The Japanese influence is reimagined with a distinctly American twist.
The retreat is run by women, many of whom have come from high flying careers in New York. They set out to create a refuge from the non-stop bustle of life in the Big Apple.

Food And Drink
The food and drink at Shou Sugi alone justifies the visit. The executive chef was a co-founder of Noma, the iconic Copenhagen restaurant. The restaurant inaugurated the New Nordic dining trend. All the food is very healthy – obvs – and made from locally sourced ingredients.
Dining takes place around a single long table – cue Last Supper jokes. Breakfast features Scandi favorites, such as avocado with eggs and rye bread.
