The Four Seasons Bahamas brings together everything we love about this go-to Caribbean destination with our go-to luxury hotel partner!
While visiting Nassau for hotel site inspections, it was important for me to take a peak and see what our beloved Four Seasons partners have to offer. The Ocean Club site visit was an overall highlight of the entire trip. This well established resort (formerly a One & Only) offers a balance between classic luxury and contemporary style; it is worth it to go a little further from the airport (about a 40 minute drive) to get a complete luxury experience.
The Four Seasons Bahamas, known formally as The Ocean Club, a Four Seasons Resort, is spread out amongst lush gardens and feels quite spacious for housing 90 rooms, 12 suites and 5 villas. Built in the mid 20th century this resort sits on the north side of Paradise Island. Trust me, it was Paradise with a rich history of Bahamian roots, progressive artists and the filming of multiple James Bond movies. The Four Seasons Bahamas is the perfect combination of romance& relaxation while still being very family friendly.
Our Favorite Things About the Four Seasons Bahamas:
They offer two main room styles, the newly renovated Crescent Wing with modern decor, white bathrooms and ocean view. Then around the corner is the older Harford Wing nestled in the palms. These dark wood rooms and mosaic tile bathrooms were a personal favorite. With decor options to fit every preference, this resort is perfect for a multi-generational family trip. Each family member will find something to please them and there is plenty of space for multiple generations looking to break away into their own little personal sanctuaries.
As far as the Villa options, these were the real deal! No little bungalow huts here. Instead they offer multiple spacious rooms, private pools, full kitchen and round the clock butler service. These garden cottages were tucked away for ultimate privacy away from the view of guests walking around the resort, but featuring incredible ocean views for guests to take it all in.
While exploring we came across multiple pool options, a kids club, and bikes as an option of transportation around the property. As we passed a clay tennis court the instructor of over 40 years was relaxing in the sidelines. It was these moments of stepping back in time as if I was going to run into The Rat Pack, that really made this resort come to life for me.
The spa area of the resort was worth the visit alone, offering an unforgettable aroma in the air. This indoor/outdoor setting offered private treatment areas no matter the service request large or small. Open air villas of mosaic tile, private bathtubs and private garden provided a truly unique spa service experience.
Restaurant Dune is one of the only dining location on the entire island with an ocean view. Located just steps from the beach, this is the ultimate Caribbean dining experience.
The Ocean Club has been a hideaway favorite for some luxury travelers for decades, yet it is also only just being discovered by others. Whichever group you belong you, this gem of a resort is going to provide true Bahamian service. Its strong historic ties, lush property and very well established staff earns a top spot on my list for an island luxury experience!
