Meet the Owners

Leeza and Telly Amarant - The Sea Breeze Inn


Telly and Leeza Amarant own and operate The Sea Breeze Inn. In 1991, shortly after moving to Newport County, they purchased an old, two-bedroom colonial and transformed it into what is now The Sea Breeze Inn. Over the years, Telly and Leeza have hosted guests from around the world, always welcoming them just as they would family, making the Inn a true "home away from home" for many. Twenty-five years later, Telly and Leeza have now completed their vision by expanding, remodeling, and re-designing The Sea Breeze Inn, all in an effort to continue to provide a comfortable place where guests from around the world can visit, relax and enjoy beautiful Newport, Rhode Island.

"We are thrilled to re-open and we hope our guests will be happy with what we’ve created. We will continue to operate the hotel as we always have, treating all of our guests just as we would family, and we look forward to beginning the next chapter of the Sea Breeze Inn." - Leeza Amarant
