And that would be Long Beach, New York.
Allegria Hotel And Spa is located less than 30 miles from Manhattan on the south shore of Long Island. Deluxe accommodations, cuisine by famed chef Todd Jacobs, oceanfront weddings and an ideal backdrop for corporate retreats and meetings, are just a few of Allegria Hotel & Spa’s offerings.
Allegria is currently having a “soft opening”, so only a select number of its 112 guestrooms and 31 premium suites are available. The Atlantica Restaurant & Bar, featuring the cuisine of Executive Chef Todd Jacobs, is also taking reservations. Adjacent to Atlantica, the L’Onda Lounge, serving an assortment of specialty cocktails and an extensive wine list, is open to guests as well. The hotel’s 200-person ballroom and three meeting rooms are available for weddings, events and corporate meetings.
Guestrooms are designed in a white and sand color palette, with driftwood and periwinkle accents. How can you not love anything with “periwinkle accents”? Bathrooms are finished in limestone and include signature skin and hair products. Rooms are equipped with LCD HDTV’s, 400 thread-count sheets and towels woven from Egyptian cotton. All accommodations have balconies to let in sea breezes.
The property’s signature restaurant and bar, Atlantica, offers “sophisticated American cuisine”. (We’re not sure if that means the food is sophisticated or that it’s intended for sophisticated Americans.) The 143-seat space, with an additional private dining room featuring a chef’s table for up to 16, is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch.
The hotel’s 3,000+ square-foot grand ballroom can accommodate up to 200 guests and be broken down for more intimate soirees. Three meeting rooms situated on the third floor – the Madison, Park and Lexington Suites – are ideal for breakout sessions. The property’s location on the Atlantic Ocean affords the added bonus of hosting special events on the beach. Chef Jacobs’ team oversees all catering for events and creates a truly unique experience for all.
The “spa” portion of the resort’s name will open in the first quarter of 2010, under the direction of New York spa impresario Joseph Christopher. (Who knew there was such a thing as a “spa impresario”?) The 10,000 square-foot roof-top spa is highlighted by an infinity-edge pool that’s heated year round. A poolside dining option, Jacks on the Rocks, will also open in 2010.
