About One&Only Ocean Club
The One&Only Ocean Club resort is located on Paradise Island, the five mile-long, nine mile-wide strip just across the water from Nassau Harbor. Spectacular, intricately landscaped gardens inspired by those at Versailles and a 12th-century Augustinian cloister shipped piece by piece from France offer an Old World feel at the 34-acre resort. Guest rooms are in four distinct areas: two hotel wings, garden cottages, and residential villas, overlooking the infinity pool and sea. The spa has eight treatment villas, and a state-of-the-art fitness center features Technogym equipment and free daily yoga and Kinesis classes.
Water sports abound, with diving, snorkeling, sailing, kayaking, paddle boating, fishing, and windsurfing, as well as swimming at the beach or in one of the two pools. Other activities include golf on the 18-hole Tom Weiskopf-designed course, tennis, complimentary bicycles for touring the island, and visits to the nearby Atlantis casino.
About this Brand
The 12,500-square-foot One&Only Spa has eight Balinese-style treatment villas with teak massage tables, air-conditioned massage pavilions, waterfall showers, plus daybeds and jetted tubs in private gardens.
