These days, everyone is looking for the next unique vacation experience; and they don’t come much more unique than the fabulously idiosyncratic Playland Motel at Rockaway Beach.
If you are searching for perfect places to stay in New York; this promises to be a spot that you won’t forget in a hurry. The motel boasts 12 rooms available to rest your head for the night; though forget your standard-issue bland hotel room exterior. These rooms have been individually designed by some of NYC’s most prominent up and coming artists; including Simon Spurr (whose two tone white and green interior focuses on the play of light around the room) and Federico Saenz-Recio; who strips his space down to basics, with a bold stars and stripes bed cover taking centre place. Other rooms also feature a giant tepee and red-paint drips down the walls, ‘The Shining’ style. We promise that nocturnal visits from Jack Nicholson will not be included!
The popular Rockaway Beach location is one of the best places to stay in for both staunch sun-worshippers and people looking to kick back, relax and enjoy the chilled out shore-side vibe.
Wanting an establishment that offers fine food too? The Playland has a diner, serving a wide variety of freshly caught seafood, such as clams, oysters and tuna tartare; plus other delicious dishes like crispy iron duck. It has also recently added a Pizza restaurant with Neapolitan brick oven, to create a range of highly tempting pizzas (perfect to accompany the low-priced beers!) You might find other restaurants in Rockaway Beach that offer a more conventional dining experience, but that’s what the Playland is all about; offering something a little bit different. Suited and booted types need not apply…
Come and see for yourself what all the fuss is about; and book yourself into one of the twelve unique rooms. Enjoy the in-house music, relax in the Playland ‘beach’ (complete with folding chairs and splash pools) and taste some local seafood and crisp stone baked pizza.
Even after only a few months of opening, the Playland Motel is building a formidable reputation; and its no surprise why! Check it out for yourselves, and indulge in some seriously chilled beach-style holidaying.
