About One&Only Ocean Club
A former colonial plantation home with a peaceful beach-side location, One & Only Ocean Club has a sophisticated, elegant atmosphere. Expansive manicured lawns and towering coconut palms provide an enchanting backdrop to the pristine beaches of Paradise Island. The 105 guestrooms, suites and villas are warm and inviting, with modern conveniences and the discreet services of a personal butler. All have spacious balconies and patios offering garden or ocean views. Residential-style villas perched above the beach with private infinity-edge pools offer more spacious living areas for families, as do the garden cottages.
There are a number of dining options, from the culinary mastery of renowned Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten to formal Afternoon Tea or beachside dining on tropical fare. Venture to nearby Atlantis Paradise Island to savour the innovative creations of Michelin-starred Chef Nobuyuki "Nobu" Matsuhisa at Nobu, or a second Vongerichten restaurant, Café Martinique.
You'll discover excellent leisure facilities including tennis, water-sports including diving, snorkelling, sailing and wind-surfing, and world-class golf on the doorstep. One & Only's championship golf course has played host to several nationally-televised events, including the Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational, and is home to touring pro Ernie Els. This 18-hole course stretches over the peninsula, affording beautiful coastal views.
Head to the tranquillity of the spa and relax in one of eight Balinese-style treatment villas, all furnished with teak massage tables, a waterfall shower, day bed and jetted tub in a private open air garden. Following each treatment, guests savour herbal teas and fresh fruit presented in a Japanese Tea Ceremony, a beautiful ritual practiced as a reminder of the spiritual world within.
The KidsOnly club welcomes children aged four to 12 years to take part in supervised activities including cookery, sports and wildlife excursions and also has a computer/technology area, an arts & crafts centre, a film and video game room and a library and game room. Babysitting services are also available for children aged six weeks to 12 years.
