There’s a lot of philosophical and aesthetic gravitas behind the wellness destination that is Shou Sugi Ban House. We’ll get into some of it, but the tl;dr version is that this place is a gorgeously minimalist wellness spa and retreat located in Water Mill.

“SSB House” derives its name from the Japanese meditation process of Shou Sugi Ban, an ancient charring technique for strengthening and preserving wood. The entire space, and the wellness experience it offers, are steeped in the principles of wabi-sabi, or accepted imperfection. But what does this mean for your stay? Tranquility. Peace. Calm.

But does all that stuff really work? From what we can tell, yes. But, maybe that’s just the effect of the seasonal soaks on each night of your stay. Combine that with the culinary program, featuring the collaborative design of Mads Refslund (of Noma fame) and healthy greens grown in the on-site garden, and a couple days of rest and relaxation might leave you feeling like a whole new you.
