Architectural and Interior Design
The Samoset lobby was opened to the restaurant below, with the spirit of the sea permeating the interior spaces.
Natural timber beams and a stone hearth offer a tactile reminder of Maine’s connection to the logging and shipping industries. Wrought iron contrasts the natural wood finishes for a modern take on an old ship’s interior.
The new culinary experience, La Bella Vita, is approachable, intimate and engaging, referencing Trattorias surrounding the Piazzas of Italy.
The interior design complements the artful manner in which the food is prepared and served at the Antipasto Bar and Marketplace. The rustic finishes and textural materials consist of genuine elements most commonly found in domestic Italian kitchens, such as marble, wood, copper and iron.
A full-service spa provides a tranquil escape and celebrates the serenity of the surrounding coastal landscape.
The Opal Spa at Samoset Resort includes four treatment rooms, a private lounge, and a retail and reception space.
