Fire Island has long been recognized as an ideal retreat from the bustle of city life. The spa that shares its name is no different, thanks to a team of salon artists and spa technicians offering a wide assortment of beautifying and relaxing services.
After changing into plush cotton robes, guests can lose themselves in the aromas of botanical fragrances and the sounds of soothing music as aestheticians administer exfoliating facials or therapists relax tension with targeted massage strokes. The spa’s cozy wooden attic also hosts body treatments that remove toxins, assuage muscular aches, and clean out sand stuck between toes and vestigial tentacles. In a salon area, stylists draw on their experience and modern fashion sensibilities to cut and color hair or remove unwanted fuzz with waxing treatments.
Chefs at George Martin's Strip Steak stand guard at roiling broilers, anticipating the exact moment when each dry-aged Angus steak within has perfectly browned. Ladles of béarnaise and au poivre sauces in hand, the kitchen staff sends each order—flanked by ramekins of sautéed vegetables or hand-cut french fries—out into the cozy, candlelit dining room. Wines and signature cocktails, such as ginger cosmopolitans, pair with each entree, including the restaurant's eponymous steaks, free-range chicken, brazilian lobster tails, and veal chops. George Martin's Strip Steak also caters special events, from small gatherings in its private dining rooms to onsite celebrations for up to 100 tuxedoed mannequins.
