Situated on an exclusive piece of land in The Bahamas, otherwise known as Paradise Island, The Ocean Club offers an escape of such beauty, such impeccable taste, that enamoured patrons can’t help but return time and time again. Adorned with stunning landscaped gardens inspired by the Chateau de Versailles and overlooking an expanse of sparkling blue water; few places of such quietude and luxury remain in this fast-paced world of ours. Thankfully you’ve just stumbled across one of the best. This Four Seasons Resort is a real slice of the good life.
Paradise Island lies around 40 minutes from Lynden Pindling International Airport, the Bahamas’ largest airport. So despite the feeling of being a million miles from the ‘real’ world, the ease of access to your luxury abode is a wonderful plus. The island itself is a mere five miles long and one mile wide, so lingering, late-afternoon strolls to explore your new home will no doubt form some of the fondest memories of your time here.
Expertly pulling off the relaxed, beach-chic vibe we all dream of on those rainy days back home, the rooms here are pure luxury. This is a place where Colonial elegance meets Caribbean colour, so expect stunning furnishings with splashes of vibrant reds and blues. Beachfront and Ocean View Suites make the most of expansive terraces overlooking the sea, whilst, secluded amidst gardens of luxuriant tropical bloom, two picturesque island cottages offer space aplenty, with two bedrooms and a charming private courtyard with plunge pool. For the real wow-factor, the villa residences offer an added sense of seclusion and introduce you to another level of service completely (dedicated household staff? Yes please).
WHY WE LIKE IT
Sometimes, we all need to feel like royalty, to feel a little bit special, and as soon as you arrive at The Ocean Club, with its signature Four Seasons service, this is a feeling you won’t be able to shake. It’s a place that knows exactly how to treat its guests, and you’ll find it’s the little things that make a big difference. Just take the daily delivery of strawberries and champagne or 24-hour butler service for example. It’s sheer bliss.
