The first thing summer visitors will likely notice of The Capri is its spruced-up look by Meyer Davis Studio whose previous work includes NY's ever-hot Locanda Verde and the John Varvatos flagship store. The design studio puts an earthy spin on beach glamour that will likely become one of the Hampton's hottest reservations of the season; whether for room or restaurant, including a permanent outpost for world-famous sushi chef Nobu Matsuhisa called Nobu at the Beach.
At the heart of the new hotel is a revamp of its pool-based beach club. A stylish summer scene even before the remodel, The Bathing Club will be located within the newly landscaped resort deck of the hotel. The swimming pool space is arranged in elaborate daybeds and sun loungers that go from pool party by day to swanky extension of the dining room by night with firepit home to the occasional private soiree or summer party that's have been part of The Capri mantra since its Southampton inception.
The Beach Store, the new in-house fashion boutique curated by fashion designer Cynthia Rowley, offers an in-hotel shopping outpost for bathing suits and sunglasses in a stylish one-room shop located away from the main lobby. The Beach Store sells a number of art pieces on display in guest rooms also available through the members-only art website Exhibition A in which Rowley is also a partner.
Those staying overnight or on a long weekend at The Capri will find a total of 31-guest rooms have been reworked and completely overhauled to strip away the decade’s old mock boutique-chic layers. In their place come thoroughly stylish rooms with upgraded linens, flat-screen TVs, rustic-chic décor and walkways that lead to the hotel’s pool and lounge. Walls will feature limited and collector’s edition artwork from an online art-house Exhibition A.
