Montauk: Known as The End, due to it's location at the easternmost point of Long Island. Said location makes it not only one of the best spots for fishing and surfing, but also, well at least until now, one of the best-kept secrets for a laid-back vibe in the Hamptons. In the past few years, the uptick of stylish boutiques and design-forward hotels putting down roots in the old fishing village shows that, for Montauk, it's really just The Beginning.

Take for instance the Solé East Resort—self-described as "lavish without the attitude"—and its beach club-style poolside scene, a hot spot for guests and locals during the day and long into the evening. Decidedly bohemian—bamboo walkways lead to hammocks and a wood-burning fire pit in the well-manicured gardens—yet sophisticated, with rattan club chairs and oversize lounge beds by the heated pool and a this-feels-like-my-backyard ambience for the well-heeled crowd.

Expect lavish touches in the surfer-chic bungalow-style rooms, where high thread-count Italian cotton linens hold court with fluffy duvet covers, flat-screen TVs, and complimentary wireless Internet access. Classic Hamptons white wainscoting meets whitewashed walls and all-white furniture, reminiscent of a home on the Greek islands.

White décor also reigns at the Zagat-rated Backyard Restaurant, where the menu focuses on fresh and natural ingredients from Montauk fishermen, the local farmers' market, and the on-site garden. Pre- or post-dinner, sip hand-crafted cocktails on the tiki-torch-illuminated patio with DJ-spun tunes.

It seems Solé East has not only figured out that you can't go wrong with white at the beach, its also perfected the fine art of being hip, yet low-key.

  • “Airy rooms, a daybed-surrounded pool, and a restaurant offering global cuisine (plus local favorites including lobster rolls) make Solé East Resort a great crash pad, and with a fleet of bicycles for hire, you can skip the rental car."
