Celebrity lawyer Mark Geragos has repped everyone from Ke$ha to Winona to Diddy, but he doesn’t need to make a case for the hotel he owns in Southampton—the glamorous getaway speaks for itself. Purchased by the owners of W South Beach and Montauk’s Surf Lodge, Capri is a boutique stay with a major dose of style, from its 1950s-inspired yellow-and-white-striped awning to the L’Occitane shea butter bath amenities in its room and suites. The hotel lifestyle is just as fashionable, oriented around a poolside lounge set among well-manicured hedges, with chaises and daybeds for sunbathers. In case all that’s not fabulous enough, the property has also hosted both Howard Stern and Robert de Niro, who knows a thing or two about nice hotels. Best of all, it brings the nightlife of the surrounding Hamptons hamlet, home to such clubs as 1OAK, to you. After dark on weekends, the aforementioned Bathing Club becomes the backdrop for a giant dance party, where you can break it down to the jams of the evening’s DJ and sip fruity cocktails under the stars—or, as we prefer to call it, pass Geragos’ bar exam. As in many Hamptons hotels, weekends here are characterized by fabulous parties by the pool – be sure to bring earplugs if you came to catch some sleep. Please note that men are politely asked to refrain from wearing denim shorts.
In the Area
Voted the best village in the Hamptons by Business Insider, Southampton is known for its shopping scene, as well as its celebrity residents and their gorgeous oceanfront mansions. It’s home to Cooper’s Beach, a stretch of pristine Atlantic shoreline that’s popular among the region’s well-heeled residents and their young children, who come wielding sandcastle molds and buckets of beach toys. It’s also a nightlife capital and just a short drive from all the other Hamptons hamlets, which means that as a Capri guest, you’ll have no trouble getting to the cutest local farmstands or buzziest restaurants.
How to Get There
We paid 1000$ per night and our room was filthy! There was period blood on the toilet and the floor was sandy! Also the music is so loud and half the electric went out, so the room was sweltering hot!! Ruined our weekend!!
Had the most amazing time at Capri Southampton this past weekend. What a STUNNING little hotel. Every nook and cranny made me feel like I had the ultimate Hamptons experience. The attention to detail does not go unnoticed. The staff was friendly and extremely accommodating, the restaurant was fantastic and provided a free breakfast (the hot food is made to order, just ask and they'll make you anything you'd like for no charge). The beds were comfortable, showers hot with good towels and toiletries, the pool was beyond perfect. The entire experience was just a dream. Everything I had hoped for in a Hamptons getaway. Oh, and the Jitney stop is literally a 3 minute walk and the adorable Village of Southampton is about a 15min walk. Very convenient!
Literally loved this spot. The rooms are so cute and the pool is beautiful. The lunch menu is amazing and the drinks are BEYOND delicious! They have a health juice margarita that will leave you feeling guilt free as you drink the day away. There is a new restaurant there that looks like the it spot in the Hamptons. Overall loved the location, staff and vibe of this hotel. Will for sure go back.
