The continued interest surrounding travel as a means of rebounding from nearly two years of illness and isolation has led travelers to destinations and practices whose focus is wellness and mindfulness. The summer months saw an increase in adventure travel including high energy bookings with tour operators. Road trips within the bubble of family also loaded the highways with gasoline pumping pleasure – good for the soul but not necessarily for the environment.
According to Time.com, “The United States is now experiencing a fourth wave of Covid-19, with very rapidly rising infections.” As the fall season approaches, and with it the possibility of increases in Covid-19 infections, travelers, unwilling to retreat back into their pandemic-beleaguered lives, can find a happy medium within the portfolio of wellness resorts, hotels, apps, and healthy supplements.
One pushpin on the traveler’s roadmap needs to be Marram, Montauk, Long Island’s newest boutique resort, which had recently announced the opening of its wellness-based fall programming. Now through the Thanksgiving holiday, guests can enjoy the perfect autumnal escape at the resort with a new menu of wellness workshops like Tarot Tauk, fireside chats, and stargazing, in addition to programming already in place like oceanfront yoga, morning meditation, guided nature walks, and private beach fires.
Marram fits perfectly into the style and atmosphere present throughout Montauk. The luxury is in the location. Just a five minute walk to town, Marram brings a seaside surf cottage inspired experience to the heart of Montauk. The resort was collaboratively designed by Bridgeton Holdings [which has within its portfolio Walker Hotel Tribeca and Walker Hotel Greenwich Village] and Brooklyn-based Post Company, and features 96 guest rooms, an open communal lounge and an on-property counter service South American café, Mostrador Marram. The resort’s surf shack offers lessons with the world-class surfers of Engstrom Surf, a family-run surf school.
