Topping Rose House — Bridgehampton

The Topping Rose House in Bridgehampton pays homage to its 1842 Greek Revival roots while embracing modern luxury. Guests have the option of staying in the main inn with beautiful rooms featuring historic details or opting for the new modern wing in the back of the property. Named after the original owner Judge Abraham Topping Rose, the resort reimagined by architect Roger Ferris has a Jean-Georges restaurant, pool, fitness area, event spaces, outdoor lounge areas and new spa services from Airem. 

The spa features the Airem product line, timeless Korean beauty rituals meet clinically effective formulas for results-driven skin care. Dr. Eunice Park who has a full-service practice in Syosset offers minimally invasive, non-surgical, and surgical techniques to her patients brings her and her staff’s facial skills to this central Hamptons location. 

They have a special AI Skin Analysis to determine the overall health of your skin with a 14-point evaluation and an Airem Medical Esthetician can provide a customized skincare regimen. The facials are the secret weapon for your summer glow and the best hour you can spend off line. They include everything from cleansing to exfoliating to hydrating and firming. There is even a supercharge microinfusion facial that uses a 24-karat gold plated stamping device. 

A signature facial is the Hamptons HydraDome Facial. Combining oxygen and LED therapy to help nourish the skin, this hydrating facial helps to restore moisture and skin’s pH balance and instantly firms and plumps skin, delivering long lasting deep hydration. Add on dermaplaning for a faultless smooth finish. Hint, a great pre-game for any event.

Be Sure To: Stop in after your spa appointment for the weekday happy hour Monday to Thursday from 5 to 6:30 PM or the special Rosé Garden Fridays with live music, cocktails, and oysters from 4 to 6 PM.
