Originally designed by local architect Robert Platt, husband and wife duo Charles and Dinorah lived on-site and ran the property as a Sportsman’s Lodge in the 1960’s. Recently refreshed by Casetta Group, the hotel’s interiors are outfitted in contemporary design as a contrast to its Midcentury architectural features. The selection of 23 guest rooms are arrayed around the Art Moderne oyster-shaped pool, which flows into onsite cocktail bar and restaurant Charles + Dinorah.
As a nod to the hotel’s name, the in-room artwork pays homage to the remarkable female Japanese pearl divers, called ama, known to hold their breath underwater for extended periods of time while harvesting oysters.
Our guestrooms feature artwork by local makers including ceramics by Wood Metal and Mud and block prints by Natalie Bessell.
