35 beachfront acres

The renowned One&Only Ocean Club is set above an uncrowded beach that stretches for 3 miles on Paradise Island's north shore. Its 35 lush acres include gardens inspired by Versailles.

Discreet and secluded

Tranquility reigns on the beach (where guests are misted with Evian), by the pool (with garden views), in the Asian-influenced spa, and in the gardens, which contain a 12th-century cloister.

24-hour butler service

Despite the resort's size, there are only 105 rooms. All are opulent, with Frette linens, DVD players, and private terraces. Guests receive 24-hour butler service and daily champagne and strawberries.

Hotel Amenities

Featuring eight private treatment villas suitable for couples as well as singles, the resort's health spa employs Asian holistic rituals and includes a beauty salon offering private rooms with hardwood floors and gilt-frame mirrors. Decorated with Balinese carved-wood accents and Thai silk pillows, each villa includes side-by-side Javanese-teak treatment tables and a two-person shower with oversized rainfall showerhead. Outside, a private garden-courtyard contains a two-person Balinese daybed under a wood-shingle roof, as well as a two-person jetted tub.

Signature offerings include the Ocean Club massage (two therapists employing five massage techniques), Elemis Aroma Spa Ocean Wraps (heated seaweed body masks followed by massage), and Elemis Fennel Cleansing Cellulite and Colon Therapy (detoxifying body mask and massage).

Stretching from the One&Only Ocean Club to near Nassau Harbor, the 0.25-mile-long gardens (built by Huntington Hartford II and modeled after the French original in Versailles) consist of seven terraces graced by Carrera-marble and bronze statues, including two of Empress Josephine reclining at the gardens' entrance; a 12th century Greek statue of Hercules; and two giant bronze statutes of Hartford heroes Franklin D. Roosevelt and explorer David Livingston. The gardens' apex features a 12th century Augustinian cloister from France that Hartford purchased from William Randolph Hearst.

Located on the lip of a low bluff between sloping lawns and the beach, a weathered-wood deck pierced by a single palm tree supplies a panoramic ocean view for daily complimentary one-hour yoga classes. Snuggled again a seagrape hedge nearby, a tent-cabana offers the same view for open-air massage. Hammocks stretch between palm trees throughout the resort's 35 acres.

One&Only Ocean Club also provides guests with modern amenities making your stay not only relaxing, but convenient as well. Amenities include free valet parking, on-site medical assistance, conference center, banquet facilities, rain umbrellas, and a gift shop/newsstand.
