Shou Sugi Ban House

Shou Sugi Ban House, the first wellness retreat of its kind on Long Island, will open in Water Mill in Spring 2019. The 13-room retreat, set on three acres just next to the Parrish Art Museum, will incorporate many forms of wellness treatments ranging from sound healing to reiki to yoga to hikes on the beach. Amy Cherry Abitbol, a Hampton local for over 25 years, founded Shou Sugi Ban House with a goal to bring people to a simple appreciation for their natural surroundings, allowing for quiet contemplation and introspection while fostering human connection. Programming combines ancient rituals with modern wellness and healthy longevity science. Stays are meant to be transformative, healing, and an exploration of one’s self in a lighthearted and joyful setting. Guests will be invited to stay for multi-day retreats to restore both body and spirit.
