The Plaza is lovely and the Hamptons are lovely — and traveling between the two is garbage. In the summer, traffic becomes so gridlocked it can add hours to your journey, putting that much time between you and a floating swan in a pool.
Well for those who have the funds, (and let’s be honest, if you’re staying at the Plaza, you probably do), the Plaza has a new package that promises to make the experience slightly less terrible. For rates starting at $16,000, the hotel is offering a “City and Sand” package that will take you from the hotel to East Hampton in 60 minutes flat.
How do they do that, you ask? With a helicopter of course! You and your five best buds crowd into a car that will take you to the Wings Air helipad and then off to East Hampton. Once you’ve arrived, you can enjoy a fully catered picnic, courtesy of Perfect Picnic. And then it’s back to the Plaza, where you get $250 to dine at the Palm Court.
We have a feeling whoever books this package is going to have some pretty nauseating (and enviable) Instagram posts.
