Nothing shouts beachside vacation quite like the upbeat decor of this 16-room newcomer, which has an irresistible Lilly-Pulitzer-goes-to-Rhode-Island vibe. Designed by Frank Karpowicz Architects, with interiors by Jocelyn Chiappone of Digs Design Company, the Break has a look that taps into the nostalgia for vintage surfer cool (local surfing legend Peter Pan rocked the waves here in the 1960s). Think lashings of turquoise, coral and sunshine yellow, with jazzy textiles and Danish Modern–inspired furnishings and light fixtures. Relaxation is the name of the game, with diversions like a spa and salon, a heated outdoor pool and a swanky ocean-view rooftop lounge where you can sip cocktails while nibbling on light bites. In the chillier months, get cozy by the fire in the plush lounge, with its Midcentury-style chairs and sofas, or curl up in your comfy room; you can luxuriate in the bathroom, which has a heated floor, before kicking back in your waffle kimono beside the fire.
In the Area
Enjoy all the preppy perks on offer within a stone’s throw of the hotel, in the laid-back but lively township of Narragansett. Tee off at the Rose Hill Golf Club, a nine-hole course that welcomes golfers of all skill levels and features a Cape Cod–style clubhouse, or learn to surf at the Peter Pan Surfing and SUP Academy, which, as the name suggests, also offers standup-paddleboarding instruction and rentals. Or sign up for a leisurely boat trip: Gansett Cruises offers harbor tours and sunset cruises on Narragansett Bay. (The adventurous and deep-pocketed can opt for the Sky & Sea package, which combines cruising with a chopper ride courtesy of Bird’s Eye View Helicopters.) Take in some wholesome fun at Theater by the Sea, a family-friendly local institution that hosts rollicking musicals during the summer season, then refuel at local favorite Matunuck Oyster Bar, which has a raw bar that features treats like littleneck clams and RI oysters, along with fresh-from-the-farm dishes such as goat cheese and beet salad, made with produce from the restaurant’s own garden.
How to Get There
Five star all the way around. The property is gorgeous with beautiful grounds, pretty in ground heated pool and unique sauna. The bar and dining area on the top floor is nicely furnished with amazing ocean views. The rooms are spacious and well appointed . The bathroom is large with awesome dual head shower. The food and drinks are excellent! The seafood is fresh and cooked to perfection. Our servers, Lucas and Alexa were friendly and attentive. The complimentary breakfast buffet was incredible, offering omelets, bacon, oatmeal, fresh fruit, pastries, coffee and juices. The entire staff from management, Mark and Deedra, Rachel and Emma who helped with checking in-out. Grounds pool staff were all service oriented and friendly. We neglected to get the Chef’s name, but they were five star!
From the moment we checked in, the staff made it all about us. We were greeted at the desk with a warm welcome. My partner had called ahead and let them know it was my birthday and the staff left no detail out. Personal birthday greetings awaited me, chocolates and prosecco in our room. The restaurant was quaint and the food was delicious. A heated saltwater pool is open year round and a sauna sits poolside. The spa was the perfect way to end my birthday. I left calm and relaxed, with a glass of bubbly to help me celebrate my day.
If you need or want to run away from home, this is the place.
Great place! Comfortable and beautifully decorated rooms. Love the bath’s heated floor and double rain showerheads! Breakfast was delicious and staff were very helpful and friendly. Perfect location close to everything! We would definitely stay again!
Beautiful small resort.Visited for Birthday weekend, off season but enjoyed time in the outdoor heated swimming pool. The rooftop bar and restaurant were superb. Local oysters were delicious and we caught great restaurant week deals. The staff are very cordial and the accommodations were exceptional. The complimentary breakfast is second to none. Will definitely return.
Just returned home from a wonderful over night at The Break. I was accompanied by my wife, her sister, and my brother-in-law. We were treated to a tastefully designed and very cool little boutique hotel. We arrived a little early and were warmly greeted and told our rooms would be ready shortly. We made the short drive into town for a bite and back to our oasis for a swim in the heated salt water pool and a sauna. Then back to our spacious modern beachy room for a hot shower and a some wine before dinner in the hotel's restaurant. Having been in the restaurant business for years, I will say there is great potential for making the evening dining experience as superb as everything else. It's not really fair to pass judgement with a single visit and would certainly give it a second shot if I return. Our complimentary breakfast on the other hand was top notch. Simple individual egg dishes, great bacon, several types of bread (including delicious freshly made scones), house made granola,fresh fruit, juice, and coffee Over all the staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. The owner was there both days and obviously takes great pride in her hotel and providing the best possible experience for her guests. Finally, we discovered we had left our wet bathing suits behind. I gave the hotel a call and they already had them packaged and ready to mail to us. How good is that? I would very much recommend giving this place a visit.
