Long recognized as one of the world's most exclusive resorts, the iconic One&Only Ocean Club has unveiled additional planned enhancements to raise the bar on ultra-luxury in the Caribbean.
During the multi-million dollar, five-month renovation, guest rooms and suites in the historic Hartford Wing were expanded and given a complete redesign. Additionally, the resort is introducing the ultimate beachfront experience with the new infinity-edge Ocean Pool and Ocean Pool Grill. The extensive renovation, a collaboration with world-class design consultants HKS Architects (HKS) and Jeffrey Beers International (JBI), showcases a commitment to detail and quality and highlights the magnificent views and surroundings of the resort. The completely redesigned Hartford Wing blends the glamorous ambience and exclusivity of the grand colonial manor in the most alluring beachfront hideaway in the Caribbean.
“One&Only Ocean Club is a resort with a celebrated past, and the Hartford Wing's enhancements are a subtle nod to the resort's historic spirit and glamour,” says One&Only Ocean Club General Manager John Conway. “Our guests have always been our number one priority, and many view One&Only Ocean Club as their second home or the special place they find inspiration – we took their feedback seriously and committed to exceeding their expectations with a new look and feel that will inspire them to come back again and again.”
Resort enhancements include:
The Hartford Wing
Once the private estate of A&P heir Huntington Hartford II, the aptly named Hartford Wing was fully renovated, with guest rooms and suites increasing by 110-square-feet, offering expansive terraces or balconies, and providing views of the ocean and lush resort gardens–a first in the resort's more than 53 years of welcoming guests. Each of the Wing's 52 guest rooms and suites also received new, custom-designed furnishings, fabrics and color schemes that amplify the distinctive palette of The Bahamas from cerulean blues to aquamarine and the bleached white of Bahamian sand. The bathrooms have been transformed with the addition of Whitewood, as well as Bianco Dolomiti, separate bath and rain showers, and double vanities. The Hartford Courtyard was also completely redesigned allowing for a luxurious, relaxing lounge. All guests of the Hartford Wing are serviced by the resorts' iconic butlers who assist with every need and whim.
New Beachfront Pool, Bar & Grill
Perched above never-ending views of the iconic white sand beaches and aqua waves of the Caribbean Sea is the new 125-foot-long, beachfront, infinity-edge pool at One&Only Ocean Club. Complimentary pool amenities will be offered hourly by the Pool Concierge team, including tasty treats such as house-made lollipops and refreshing spritzers. Alongside the Ocean Pool is the brand new Ocean Pool Grill, helmed by Resort Executive Chef Gal Kozer, where guests can indulge in dishes made with the freshest hand-picked local and imported ingredients such as Spiny Lobster with Herbed Butter to a variety of family-style sharing platters including a Fresh Seafood Platter with James River oysters, local lobster, Florida stone crab, prawns and tuna sashimi, without leaving the comfort of their beachfront daybed. The Ocean Pool Grill's cocktail menu is replete with craft cocktails incorporating local ingredients that deliver a truly Bahamian experience such as the Decadence with Nassau Royale, Bombay sapphire and cinnamon infused coconut water, as well as barrel-aged Negroni cocktails. Live poolside entertainment will celebrate the change of day and spectacular sunset Thursday-Saturday evenings from 5-7pm.
As the iconic luxury retreat in the Caribbean, One&Only Ocean Club offers a bespoke experience with the seclusion of what feels like a private residence, overlooking the best beach in The Bahamas. With the new enhancements, the resort remains unrivaled in its suite of offerings including the Versailles Gardens, the indulgent One&Only Spa, extensive sports, activities, and shopping at NEO boutique.
