Situated on the Long Island Sound virtually equidistant from Boston and New York City, this family-friendly oasis was built for summer. The 25-acre spread lays claim to two tennis courts, an indoor and outdoor pool, and a spa specializing in sea-inspired treatments. This season marks the opening of 20 new oceanfront villas, each with Viking appliances, marble-clad bathrooms, and the services of a doting personal concierge. On-site activities range from sunrise yoga to live music at the resort’s martini bar. For kids, there’s sand sculpture design, scavenger hunts, and capture the flag. Treat the whole brood to the legendary Sunday brunch: We recommend getting your fill of crepes, champagne, and shrimp cocktail, then sleeping it off under an umbrella in the sand.
