An intimate island full of seaside bliss, the Massachusetts island of Nantucket is a safe haven for those who like to treat themselves to the finer things in life.
Quiet beachside resorts and boutique hotels in the heart of the historical district expose you to wonderful and laid-back luxuries. Historical homes, award-winning local fare and unrivaled tranquility await inside these luxury Nantucket hotels, bookable on Culture Trip.
Feel a million miles away from the world at this luxurious oceanside shelter. Nesting in a serene green space between Great Point Beach and Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge, the Wauwinet is ready to whisk you around to Nantucket’s spas and boutiques by sea aboard the Lady Wauwinet. Thankfully, you won’t need to leave the hotel for amazing cuisine. The award-winning wine list and prix-fixe New England menu at TOPPER’S allow you to savor the best flavors of the island within a few minutes’ stroll of your cottage.
Though exceptionally close to the historic district, Faraway invites you to step far away from the norm and embrace the offbeat, the quirky and the eclectic. Original wood flooring and high ceilings are offset with curious antiques and objets d’art. A locally curated boutique brings the best of local life to your fingertips, while the mixologists in the cocktail lounge put a delicious spin on legendary libations.
The White Elephant Spa may deliver harborside serenity in every massage and body treatment, but it’s the hotel’s special kid-friendly amenities that’ll grant you luxurious relaxation. Beach toys, a poolside ice cream cart, scavenger hunts and other activities will keep them busy from sunup to sundown. New parents will adore the complimentary strollers, cribs, diapers and bath lotions that cradle your bundle of joy in their own lavish amenities.
Summers spent along the sea are splendid, but only the Nantucket can grant you a getaway all year long. Unique complimentary activities – such as a ride through town on an antique fire truck and an insightful climb up to the bell tower of the First Congressional Church – double-down on the Nantucket’s distinctive status. The cottage’s vintage soaking tub is especially alluring in the colder months, when the holiday season starts sweeping in from the Atlantic.

Channel your inner Herman Melville as you sit patiently at the sun-drenched raffia writing desk in your suite. If you have writer’s block, you can clear your head under the botanical rain shower, or seek inspiration in the peaceful gardens. If you’re more creative on the plate than on the page, spend your afternoon cooking up conversation in the communal kitchen before winding down with s’mores and spirits around the fire pit.
When the Nantucket Inn boasts about its one-of-a-kind amenities, it’s no hyperbole. It’s the sole island hotel with an indoor swimming pool and hot tub. The HarTru tennis courts, fitness center and self-serve Library Lounge are the icing on the cake. Though conveniently close to the airport, members of the Nantucket Inn’s staff are ready to shuttle your family to Main Street, Surfside Beach and other island hotspots.
An overgrown English garden, Venetian-inspired cuisine and exceptional art from the Big Apple converge in the Greydon House. Even the Beauty Bar in your suite’s bathroom is an international affair with imported Acqua di Parma products. Don’t lose sight of the local luxuries, though – custom bedding, linens and nautical antiques ensure that the classic Nantucket charm and style reigns supreme.
Located on stylish Main Street, 76 Main invites you to mingle with other visitors at the BYOB courtyard cocktail mixer. That is, if you can resist spending the evening drinking wine in your suite while lounging in a waffle kimono robe. The handsomely curated breakfast cannot be missed – unless you’re OK starting the day without fresh coffee, wild Maine blueberry scones and homemade sea salt and cracked pepper biscuits.
