Paradise Island, The Bahamas – 9 September 2015: Long recognized as one of the world’s most exclusive resorts, the iconic One&Only Ocean Club resort has unveiled additional planned enhancements to raise the bar on ultra-luxury in The Bahamas. In addition to the completely renovated and expanded guest rooms and suites in the Hartford Wing, the resort will be introducing the ultimate beachfront experience with a new Pool and bar and grill. Once completed, the resort will retain what guests have always loved – a sense of exclusive privacy in a relaxed setting with a beachfront unsurpassed in The Bahamas.

The new beachfront Pool will be perched overlooking the white sand beach and turquoise sea beyond. The infinity-edge Pool will provide never-ending views, indulgent days and relaxing nights for guests. A new bar and grill will let guests enjoy a relaxing lunch without ever leaving the comfort of their daybed. As the sun dips beyond the horizon, inviting fireplaces will alight to allow guests to linger into the evening for sundowners.

“The new beachfront Pool elevates the planned enhancements and will provide the definitive pool experience in the Caribbean, showcasing our continued commitment to make One&Only Ocean Club the premier vacation destination in The Bahamas,” said Jonah Sonnenborn, Head of Real Estate at Access Industries. "This takes the overall experience to a whole new level, while keeping that secluded private estate feel of the resort.”

“At One&Only Ocean Club, we want to keep introducing new experiences and now the new beachfront Pool only strengthens the choice for guests,” said Mark DeCocinis, President/Chief Operating Officer, One&Only Resorts. “I look forward to welcoming guests back to a resort that will be better than ever with our passionate team, led by General Manager, John Conway, providing the best service in The Bahamas.”

In addition to the new Pool, the entire Hartford Wing of One&Only Ocean Club is being renovated, with guest rooms increasing in size by 110 square feet offering an expansive terrace or balcony with views of the ocean and lush resort gardens. In addition, each room will have a complete makeover including new furnishings, fabrics and color schemes that amplify the distinctive palette of The Bahamas, as well as completely transformed bathrooms. The Hartford Courtyard will be completely redesigned to allow for a luxurious relaxation experience for guests.

The extensive renovation is in collaboration with world-class design consultants HKS Architects (HKS) and Jeffrey Beers International (JBI). A commitment to detail and quality in order to deliver the ultimate guest experience through great design has been the driving force for creating the new look and feel of the resort. Additionally, a strong focus has been placed on showcasing the magnificent views and surroundings of the resort.

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 new enhancements, the resort will be better than ever and remain unrivalled in its suite of offerings including the unrivalled Versailles Gardens, the indulgent Spa, extensive sports and activities and shopping at Neo Boutique.
