Shou Sugi Ban House Opens Second Hamptons Property

The Hampton's ultimate wellbeing retreat expands its footprint.

By Emma Al-Mousawi

Just two years after its May 2019 opening, the luxury Hamptons wellness destination of Shou Sugi Ban House, has unveiled a second destination to experience its coveted brand of Japanese-inspired zentopia: The Shou Sugi Ban Inn.

Consisting of an intimate bed and breakfast for overnight stays; and two standalone luxury residences for short-term rentals, The Shou Sugi Ban Inn is positioned beside the serene sanctuary of Shou Sugi Ban House in the beautiful pocket of Water Mill in Southampton. 

Previously the White Fences Inn, its new incarnation features five rooms (including three suites) and includes all the benefits of a stay at the main house. This includes the daily signature breakfast from the plant-rich culinary program designed by Michelin-starred chef Mads Refslund and priority access to the House’s renowned spa and wellness offerings.

The tranquil rooms and suites within the Inn feature fireplaces, sumptuous Frette linens, a soaking tub or shower, organic Japanese amenities, and access to the Inn’s private swimming pool and patio. There are also further plans to incorporate the minimalist design of the Japanese-inspired Shou Sugi Ban House into the existing interior design and landscape of the Inn.

As well as the five-room inn, the sustainability-focused Hamptons wellness retreat also unveiled two expansive stand-alone Shou Sugi Ban Residences.

The five-bedroomed 345 Montauk Highway residence sits on 1.5 acres of greenery and features a tennis court, expansive 40ft granite pool complete with pool house and a gourmet kitchen.
