Situated on an exclusive piece of land otherwise known as Paradise Island; One&Only 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.
Paradise Island lies around 40 minutes from Lynden Pindling International Airport, the Bahamas’ largest. 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.
The accommodation at One&Only Ocean Club is, as you’d expect, truly luxurious, expertly pulling off the relaxed, beach-chic vibe we all dream of on those rainy days back home. This is a place where Colonial elegance meets Caribbean colour, so expect stunning furnishings lightened by cream upholstery and splashes of vibrant reds and blues. In the Crescent and Hartford Wings, opt for beach-front and Ocean View Suites in order to make the most of an expansive terrace overlooking the sea. Secluded amidst gardens of luxuriant tropical bloom, two picturesque island cottages offer resplendent space, each boasting two bedrooms, indulgent living and dining areas, and a charmingly private enclosed courtyard with plunge pool. For the real wow-factor, the villa residences, with their own private pools, will offer an added sense of seclusion and introduce you to another level of service completely (dedicated household staff? Yes please).
WHY WE LIKE IT

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. Things like the daily delivery of strawberries and champagne, or the 24 hour butler service. Yes, it’s the little things that you’ll remember, and it’s the little things that will be drawing us back for another visit very soon. Join us, won’t you?
