Lark Hotels, a collection of designer boutique properties located in iconic coastal New England hot spots, has announced the launch of its newest hotel, The Break, grand opening in Narragansett, Rhode Island in June 2014. The property, a new build, will feature a retro chic surf vibe and will be the first hotel of its kind in this historic seaside town, which boasts some of the best surf breaks in New England.

Situated just one block from the ocean and a short walk to the beach, The Break will feature 16 guest rooms and suites; each decked out with king beds, fireplaces, rainfall showerheads, Apple TV, iPads and iPod docking stations. Most accommodations feature private balconies with ocean or sunset views.

The decor, by Rhode Island designer Jocelyn Chiappone, will tap into the vintage surfer nostalgia of the late 60s when local surfing legend, Peter Pan, burst onto the scene and put Narragansett on the map. Bold, modern textiles pop with color palettes of bright orange, earth tones, crisp white and shades of green and blue. Furnishings combine dark woods with modern whicker chairs and chandeliers, midcentury modern inspired armchairs and sofas, fabric headboards and ceramic tables.

Developed by locals Jim and Becky Durkin, The Break will embrace the beach community history of this distinctive stretch of sand and sea. The hotel will feature a rooftop lounge overlooking sweeping views of the ocean, sunsets and Pell Bridge in Newport. Guests will also enjoy a heated outdoor pool, hot tub and sun deck, as well as a small spa and salon and a fitness center.

A sampling of the hotel’s personalized concierge services will include arranging surfing and stand up paddle boarding lessons, board and kayak rentals, beach picnics and fishing excursions – Narragansett is home to the second largest fishing port in the northeast.

Lifestyle brand vineyard vines®, the official outfitter for all Lark hotels, will provide coastal, preppy chic attire for the staff at The Break.
