One&Only Ocean Club Launches New High-end Fashion Retail Experience for Guests

Paradise Island, The Bahamas, (6 April, 2016): Long recognised as one of the world’s most exclusive resorts, the iconic One&Only Ocean Club is proud to introduce a new retail experience for its fashion forward guests, Carlo Milano for One&Only.  This boutique, along with a new Ocean Pool Cabana pop-up, are the latest additions to the resort, following the recent multi-million dollar renovation showcasing a complete redesign of the Hartford Wing and the introduction of the ultimate beachfront experience, the new infinity-edge Ocean Pool and Ocean Pool Grill.

Fusing the beauty of The Bahamas with international designers, Carlo Milano for One&Only debuted 21 March 2016, featuring top fashion brands, as well as luxury watches, accessories and eyewear.  Guests will discover a range of brands such as Chopard, Hublot, Versace, Celine, Prada, Tom Ford and many more.  Of course, the chilled-out environment of One&Only Ocean Club calls for stylish resort wear and swimwear with fashions featured from Agua Bendita and Beach Bunny to Chio di Stefania D, providing the perfect range to take you from the beach to dinner.   

“Fashion is an intrinsic part of our guest’s lives and of the One&Only brand,” commented Helen McCabe-Young, Executive Vice President, One&Only Resorts.  “Introducing new experiences for our guests and collaborating with leading designers allows us to provide something truly unique, with fashions for men, women and children which can be enjoyed on vacation as well as at home.”

With a consistent yet evolving appreciation for fashion, One&Only has partnered with several high caliber designers over the years - from Alice Temperley and Christian Louboutin to Missoni - to create one-off items for the resorts’ discerning guests.  The most recent collection was a partnership between One&Only Resorts and luxury resort wear designer Marie France Van Damme, the “City to Resort” collection that includes ten versatile resort wear pieces in black and white and an exclusive print in fabrics such as silk chiffon and silk satin. One&Only also celebrates local designers and artists, providing something truly memorable and authentic of each destination.

“Our team is excited about Carlo Milano for One&Only. The boutique will showcase some of our finest products,” said Rodney Chee-A-Tow, Carlo Milano Operations Director. “We will provide a unique shopping experience, one that is personalised to each guest. One&Only is a chic island resort that offers the very best to guests and visitors alike and we aim to enhance their experience.”

The “new” boutique offers an open plan, allowing guests the ability to navigate easily and for no item to go undiscovered, blending the glamorous ambience and exclusivity of the grand colonial manor in the most alluring beachfront hideaway in the Caribbean. The Ocean Pool Cabana pop-up will offer fun and convenient access to items for sunning plus eyewear, beachwear and other relaxed fashion perfect for lounging by the pool, on the beach or enjoying lunch on the deck of the new Ocean Grill. 

“One&Only Ocean Club is an iconic, exclusive resort, with a celebrated past, and we want every experience to reflect that special spirit and glamour,” says One&Only Ocean Club General Manager John Conway. “Our guests have always been our number one priority, and many view One&Only Ocean Club as their second home or the special place they find inspiration – we took our guests’ feedback and committed to exceeding their expectations with fresh new offerings at One&Only Ocean Club that will inspire them to come back again and again.”  

As the iconic luxury retreat in the Caribbean, One&Only Ocean Club offers a bespoke experience with the seclusion of what feels like a private residence, overlooking the best beach in The Bahamas. With the new enhancements, the resort remains unrivalled in its suite of offerings including beautiful ocean front rooms, suites, private 3 and 4-bedroom villa residences, the stunning Versailles Gardens, Dune by Jean-Georges Vongerichten, the indulgent One&Only Spa, extensive sports, activities, and now shopping at Carlo Milano for One&Only.
