NEW KDHamptons Travel Diary: Montauk's Historic Panoramic View Resort & Residences






To mix things up during in the fall season, KDHamptons loves to book a “staycation” at a local Hamptons hotel that I’ve always wanted to try. Why deal with airport hassles and canceled flights when we can jump in the car and head out to Montauk for a carefree weekend of fun, great food, and relaxation? Last week, I cruised out to “The End” [Montauk’s nickname for you city slickers] to check out the Panoramic View Resort and Residences. I love the relaxed vibe of Montauk, the friendly people who live there year round, and the dock-to-dish culinary scene. Check out my “staycation” photo diary below and plan your own fall trip to the Hamptons now — October and November are such beautiful months here…..
















Comprised of a group of different structures, The Panoramic View resort in Montauk was established in 1957 and has been a historic beachfront Hamptons destination for over fifty years. Nestled within a hillside of fragrant pines, this magnificent property encompasses over ten oceanfront acres on 1,000-feet of sandy white beach. With lush green landscaped lawns and lovely flower gardens, the resort offers guests all of the amenities of having a Hamptons home, with none of the hassles of maintaining it. Who doesn’t love the idea of having a turn-key beach chic cottage on the ocean in Montauk?







Montauk style is decidedly casual and cozy. I packed leggings, lightweight Ralph Lauren cashmere sweaters and my cute new Rain Rap cape, and UGGS. I also like to bring my own beautiful bathrobe when I travel, this pretty silk robe below is by Soffia B.













Owned and remodeled by Distinctive Management LLC, each guestroom, suite and beach cottage overlooks a beautiful white, sandy beach and spectacular seascape. In the summer, the resort offers a pool with private lounges and cabanas affording spectacular ocean views and personal attendants. Guests also have access to the fitness center, business center, concierge, porter and daily maid services, plush king-sized beds, fully-equipped kitchenette, television, phone, heat and air conditioning. All rental units – efficiency studios as well as one-and-two-bedroom units – feature picturesque windows that highlight the stunning view, as well as a private terrace or balcony. The Panoramic Resort is perfect for short-term, long-term, and off-season rentals. Montauk can get pretty overcrowded in the summer, so heading out there for a weekend staycation during the fall is ideal. No traffic, and it’s easy to get a reservation.















The Panoramic also offers permanent residences for sale [above]. The Panoramic View Residences offer luxury living at its best. The perfect second home or seaside escape, the property’s year-round staff ensures that every need is met, from a fully-stocked refrigerator to the delivery of mail or dry cleaning. Amenities include: poolside cabanas, fitness center, concierge service, porters, beach and pool attendants, on-site housekeeping, on-call massage therapists and fitness trainers. All Panoramic View Residences offer heavenly oceanfront living with none of the hassles associated with oceanfront home ownership. Boasting breathtaking ocean views, the Panoramic Residences range in size and price to suit your specific needs; featured are one-to-five bedroom units, from 1,200-square-feet to 4,500-square-feet, available from under $2 million to $6 million.




The sunrise view from my bedroom was breathtaking.
