What’s New

Newport Harbor Island Resort, the former Gurney’s Newport Resort & Marina, will reopen on April 15 with reimagined rooms and suites, restaurants, a contemporary spa, and a 22-slip marina. It is billed as “a quintessential New England coastal destination.”

The 10-acre waterside resort, a former torpedo factory, has 257 rooms and 18 suites. It was purchased by Pebblebrook Hotel Trust in 2022 for $174 million and is operated by Davidson Resorts. It is the only resort on Goat Island.

“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 spark endless marvels and memories with every season, welcoming families, couples, and friends to create lasting memories,” said David Smiley, general manager of Newport Harbor Island Resort, in a statement.

Guests will stay in expansive guest rooms with “stunning” water views.

“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,” wrote the team.

The hotel features art commissioned from local artists throughout. What’s more, the resort’s soft goods were handcrafted by various New England weavers’ guilds, another local touch, “to help create a sense of place that harkens back to the region’s storied road to independence,” wrote the team.

The resort’s signature restaurant, 1639, is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and boasts two outdoor decks overlooking Narragansett Bay and an inside dining room with views of Newport Harbor. The menu will feature local, organic food and signature dishes.

Popular outdoor hotspot The Pineapple Club, with its panoramic Narragansett Bay views, will bring a new menu, live music, expanded cabana seating with an adults-only section, extended service to the marina deck and dockside, and new pop-up programming.

For those sailing to the property, the marina accommodates boats up to 240 feet long and marina guests will receive full resort privileges. The marina is open May 1 to Oct. 31.
