The Ocean Club, A Four Seasons Resort, Is The Quintessential Caribbean Classic

The Ocean Club, A Four Seasons Resort

There are very few resorts these days that can be considered a destination unto themselves but The Ocean Club, A Four Seasons Resort, is an exception. Located on Paradise Island in the Bahamas, The Ocean Club is set amidst an impressively lush 35 acres and occupies a strand of soft, white sand beach. The Ocean Club is a world away from anything that you have come to expect from your typical island resort. You will experience luxurious seclusion, Versailles-inspired gardens, refined yet laid back butler service, towering coconut palms, enticing hammocks for a lazy day, and a Balinese themed spa experience.

Versailles Garden Pool

If your tastes lean towards the contemporary, opt for the reimagined Hartford Wing that features sophisticated rooms and suites designed by Jeffrey Beers that offer views of the gardens, the ocean and the infinity Ocean Pool. For those with a preference for the more traditional Caribbean décor, select a romantic and classic room or suite in the Crescent Wing by famed designer Adam D. Tihany that showcases elegant, gleaming hardwood floors and louvered doors that open onto your private patio or balcony offering endless views of the ocean. Guests who will be visiting the property with family or friends will want to choose one of the stunning Villa Residences that come with a private pool, ample living spaces and all of the luxurious comforts that complete an island home.

Dune Terrace

Whatever your choice of accommodation, you will be drawn outdoors to experience the natural beauty and splendor of the Bahamas. Play a match of tennis, take a scenic bike ride or tee-off at the breathtaking Ocean Club Golf Course. The championship 18-hole, par-72 golf course designed by Tom Weiskopf spans 7,100 yards and is surrounded by the Atlantic and Nassau Harbour. Afterwards, enjoy lunch al fresco on the terrace of Dune by Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten or poolside at the Versailles Terrace.

Versailles Gardens

If romance is what you are after, take a stroll with your sweetheart on the stunning white sand beach or arrange a private dinner in the transformative Versailles Gardens that overlook the calming waters of Nassau Harbor. From now until December 17, couples who are looking to unwind and recharge in paradise can take advantage of the resort’s Spa Package that includes a bottle of champagne, a 50-minute Reflexology Massage in addition to a 50-minute Swedish Massage for two, and a choice of tennis lessons or a private fitness training session for two for stays of three or more days. The award-winning spa combines ancient Asian traditions with Bahamian touches to deliver treatments that aim to recharge, nourish or detox your body and spirit in one of eight private Balinese-style treatment villas that feature teak massage tables, soothing waterfall showers, relaxing day beds and jetted tubs that are set in private, open air gardens. Afterwards, savor a traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony of herbal teas and fresh fruit in your private garden.

Villa Residence Living Room

Weary parents looking for a family vacation will rejoice at The Ocean Club’s Family Escape offer. For a stay of three days or more, guests can enjoy a 300 USD resort credit, three hours of babysitting services, daily breakfast for two adults and two children, and a family picnic in the resort garden that is sure to make a lasting impression on the entire family. The offer is valid May 1 through October 31, 2019. The Ocean Club’s Kids For All Seasons program for guests aged 4-12 will keep your children engaged and entertained with a variety of daily activities. Your children can choose between a computer and technology area, arts and crafts center, movie and video game room, and library in addition to more active pursuits such as beach and sporting games. They will even have the unique opportunity to visit and explore the marine habitat at nearby Atlantis, Paradise Island.

Villa Residence Bedroom

For the adventurous of spirit, the setting at The Ocean Club will quickly put you in the mood to have your own James Bond inspired experience. The sophisticated lobby of The Ocean Club is modeled after a grand, colonial manor and delivers a wink to the enchanting history of the former private estate. It is no wonder that the legendary property served as the backdrop for the 2006 remake of Ian Fleming’s Casino Royale. Start your day with an invigorating dip in the infinity Ocean Pool before enjoying Avocodo Toast with poached eggs and fresh squeezed orange juice on the terrace of Dune by chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Next, tee-off at The Ocean Club Golf Course and treat yourself afterwards with a nourishing Coconut Poultice Massage that is rich in vitamin E and K. For this treatment, your body will be soothed with Frangipani Monoi Body Oil as a combination of Eastern and Western massage techniques relaxes your muscles. Next, a heated coconut poultice will be applied to pressure points to release tension. After your day or pampering, head over to Atlantis to try your luck at some casino action before heading back to The Ocean Club for a pre-dinner Vesper Martini a la James Bond at the Martini Bar and Lounge. Naturally, you will want to enjoy your martini shaken, not stirred.
