Under the deep blue of an endless Bahamian sky, wrapped in the turquoise waters of an exuberant sea, One&Only Ocean Club nestles peacefully along a shore of delicate white sand beach...a treasured sanctuary of privileged perfection.
Renowned for its legendary sophistication and contemporary elegance, the resort was once the private estate of A&P heir Huntington Hartford II. Today, this alluring beachfront hideaway reflects the glamorous ambience and posh exclusivity of a grand colonial manor, welcoming generations of the world’s travelling elite. Expansive manicured lawns and towering coconut palms provide an enchanting backdrop to the pristine beaches of Paradise Island.
Here, service is elevated to a fine art form by a gracious staff welcoming you into their colonial plantation home. Warm and inviting accommodation and residential-style villas are ideal for couples and families alike. The dining options at One&Only Ocean Club are renowned and unforgettable featuring the imaginative cuisine of Chef Jean-George Vongerichten.
One&Only Ocean Club is a playground of world-class golf, tennis, spa, and of course, water-sports. The spectacular blue waters of the Caribbean are the elixir of Bahamian life, explored with a rich roster of activities, including off-property diving, snorkelling, sailing, and wind-surfing.
The beach was beautiful , as were the grounds and garden, the service was outstanding, I would return and return.
This is definitely the place to stay if you like being pampered because everyone on the staff definitely went out of their way to meet all our needs. My only problem was the beach, which unfortunately is the main reason you go to the Bahamas. The winds were so strong and the ocean current so strong that they had the red flag up every day we were there and we could not go in the water at all. We did have use of the beautiful pool, but let's face it, you can go to any hotel and use a pool. Anyway, this was very disappointing and would probably prevent me from returning.
I completely disagree with the comment below. The One and Only Ocean Club was beautiful, the people, for the most part, were welcoming and helpful, and the meal I had at the Dune was the BEST meal I have EVER had. The beach was like walking on heaven and the water was a gorgeous turquoise. Yes, it is extremely expensive but I think it was worth every penny and I will definitely be returning in the near future.
