On a sliver of an island, just 5 miles long and a mile wide, considered to be the finest in the Bahamas and once the private estate of Huntingdon Hartford II, heir to the then largest retail empire in the world, the One&Only Ocean Club was originally built using stone from a disassembled monastery that was acquired by William Randolph Hearst and stored in a Florida warehouse. With such an illustrious history it is perhaps no surprise that sophistication and style is woven into the very fabric of this Bahamanian treasure.
The 105 guestrooms, suites and villas are set in the elegantly landscaped grounds that feature terraced gardens inspired by those of Versailles and in which are fountains and bronze and marble statuary. Divided across the Hartford and Crescent wings the luxury Beachfront rooms and suites and Garden and Ocean rooms and suites are decorated in true colonial style with rich mahogany and cane furniture, lush fabrics and carefully chosen flourishes that please the eye and ensure your comfort. Spacious bathrooms are in marble, some with walk-in steam showers and double size jet baths, some with roman baths separate showers and twin vanities. Suites benefit from living and dining areas and either balconies or terrace that give onto superb views or the gardens of ocean. All include a 24 hour butler service, daily fresh fruit and afternoon champagne and strawberries.
For even greater seclusion the two garden cottages, each with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, living and dining area and enclosed courtyard offer perfect privacy while for the ultimate in home-from-home holidaying the three and four bedroom villa residences are simply spectacular. Set in a gated garden courtyard and each with a private infinity edge pool, the vaulted ceilings, spacious room layouts, kitchen, terrace and outdoor lounges make these villas perfect for families and friends.
