The reimagined resort invites travelers to discover waterfront well-being in contemporary New England-inspired spaces beginning April 15

NEWPORT, RI. – Newport Harbor Island Resort [3], a quintessential New
England’s coastal destination and the only resort on Goat Island,
announces its grand reopening on April 15 following a full
reimagination. Owned by Pebblebrook Hotel Trust and operated by Davidson
Resorts, the $50 million renovation marks a new era for the
former-Gurney’s property, comprised of refreshed, expansive guestrooms
and suites, contemporary Spa, re-concept culinary experiences, meeting
spaces, and 22-slip marina.

David Smiley, General Manager of Newport Harbor Island Resort,
commented, “We welcome travelers to join us as we unfurl the sails of
Newport Harbor Island Resort’s new era, a haven where the beauty and
history of our reimagined resort sparks endless marvels and memories with
every season, welcoming families, couples, and friends to create lasting

Paying homage to the destination’s coastal New England spirit, Newport
Harbor Island Resort partnered with Dawson Design Associates [4] (DDA)
to re-concept the former torpedo factory to bring strong cohesion to its
spaces, and weave the common threads of simplicity, warmth and coastal
New England comfort throughout. Understated but elevated, the guest
rooms and suites tout stunning water views – many of which also
feature private outdoor spaces – and are adorned with natural color
palettes and organic materials to achieve a look and feel of effortless
elegance. Much of the art in the rooms and throughout the hotel was
commissioned from local artists, while soft goods were hand-crafted by
various New England weavers’ guilds to help create a sense of place
that harkens back to the region’s storied road to independence.

Guests and locals will be invited to cozy up in the property’s
upgraded culinary outlets, including its full-service restaurant 1639
and Torpedo Bar and Lounge, which boasts a hand-laid stone fireplace
with weathered, comfortable indoor-outdoor seating and waterfront views.
The venues’ cuisine will feature local, organic food sources, with a
selection of signature dishes. Evocative of an early New England-style
bakery with marble tile and motifs of black and white, the lobby’s For
Five Coffee Roasters will function as a warm and inviting space to grab
coffee drinks and freshly baked goods to-go. Meanwhile, the beloved
Pineapple Club will activate with a new menu, expanded cabana seating
inclusive of an adults-only section on the lower level, extended service
to the Marina Deck and dockside, and special pop-up programming.

In keeping with the natural and sustainable design elements, The Spa at
Newport Harbor Island Resort will reflect a palette pulled from
hydrangeas, with hues of relaxing lavender, light periwinkle, and celery
green, enveloping the space and evoking a sense of calm.

Located steps away from the water and downtown Newport, Newport Harbor
Island Resort will afford guests access to the idyllic New England town
as well as a wide swath of on-property experiences and rotating
