We’ll also highlight some of the excursions you can embark on from the hotel around the country. So check your calendar, start thinking about which swimsuits to bring, and read on to start making your dream Bahamas vacation a reality.
Ocean Club Bahamas: What to Expect
As mentioned, the Four Seasons Bahamas Ocean Club is one of the many hotels in Paradise Island Bahamas. Paradise Island is a small island located to the north of New Providence, the island that house’s the country’s capital, Nassau. The islands are so close to one another that a bridge connects them.
Whereas Nassau feels like a city, Paradise Island feels like a giant resort. That’s not surprising since the island features some of the biggest and swankiest hotels in the world. From Atlantis to the Four Seasons Bahamas, luxury accommodations abound on Paradise Island.
Like everywhere in the Bahamas, Paradise Island is also beautiful. Four Seasons Paradise Island sits right on Cabbage Beach, a picturesque stretch of palm-fringed sand that borders the clear, bright blue water. Each morning when you wake up, you’ll feel like you’re staying in the backdrop of a postcard!
When you book a stay at any luxury resort, you expect a certain level of elegance. Even if you’re the most particular traveler in the world, you’ll find yourself hardpressed to not be impressed with the amenities at the Ocean Club Bahamas.
The resort offers elegant villas with direct beach access and private pools. You can also stay at a cottage which lets you enjoy your own plunge pool.
If you’re on a budget, you’ll be happy to know that the One and Only Ocean Club also offers more traditional and affordable accommodations. You can book a stay at standard (though still luxurious) hotel rooms while still getting a fantastic view of the ocean. Plus, all rooms have free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, 24/7 room service, and butler service to ensure that all of your needs are met.
The Resort Grounds
In addition to stunning accommodations, the Ocean Club Nassau also features hotel grounds that are so beautiful, many people choose never to leave them during their stay. Travelers staying at the resort get to enjoy:
- 3 restaurants
- 2 outdoor bars
- 3 outdoor pools
- A private beach
Hotel guests also the Four Seasons Nassau also get to enjoy included yoga classes and a shuttle to the nearby Paradise Island Golf Club. All of that ensures that no matter what type of traveler you are, staying at the Ocean Club Bahamas will be an experience you won’t soon forget!
The French Cloisters and Versailles Garden
Many of the luxury hotels in Paradise Island Bahamas come loaded with five-star restaurants, private beach access, and outdoor pools. One thing they don’t have, however, is the French Cloisters and Versailles Garden present at the Four Seasons Paradise Island.
In the 1920s, a man named William Randolph Hearst brought the remains of a 14th-century Augustinian monastery to the island. Given their size and weight, Hearst had the ruins dismantled before departure, then rebuilt upon arrival. Today, they allow visitors to enjoy architecture and gardens from a bygone age. You also get to enjoy sweeping views of the ocean behind them!
While all travelers to the Bahamas can see the French Cloisters and Versailles Garden from the road, only guests at the Ocean Club Bahamas can walk around them and appreciate their beauty up close. That alone makes staying at the resort worth it — even if it’s just for a night or two.
The Surrounding Areas
In addition to walking around the stunning expanse of Cabbage Beach, you might also want to explore some of the other top sites in the area.
The nearby resort of Atlantis also features lush gardens, as well as an aquarium and a water park full of slides, pools, and other excitement. You don’t need to stay at Atlantis to enjoy its grounds — visitors can purchase a day pass to explore.
Like the other islands in the Bahamas, Paradise Island features several other beaches worth visiting. Smugglers Beach, Paradise Island Beach, Cove Beach, and Colonial Beach are all beautiful and unique, ensuring that each one is worth visiting. Try your best to visit them all!
Don’t forget that New Providence is also just a quick walk or taxi ride away. In the country’s capital, you’ll find more beautiful beaches, as well as restaurants, museums, shops, and other attractions.
Day Trips to Exuma from the Ocean Club
Many travelers who visit the Bahamas end up sticking around Nassau. There’s nothing wrong with that, and it’s not surprising since the capital has so many amazing things to do. But as the Bahamas features 700 unique and special islands, you might want to consider leaving New Providence and Paradise Island to explore the rest of the country a bit.
While there’s no wrong place to visit in the archipelago nation, one of the top destinations is the Exumas. These are a chain of 365 islands found to the south of Nassau. Given their location and distance, they’re one of the best day trips that you can embark on in the country.
Many guests staying at the Ocean Club Bahamas and other Nassau hotels take a ferry to reach the Exumas. That might sound convenient, but it ends up wasting a lot of time. It also forces you to travel with throngs of other people and is an uncomfortable experience, in general. That’s why we recommend flying by air with Bahamas Air Tours.
When you sign up for a Nassau to Exuma day trip, you’ll fly out to the Exumas in the early morning, with pickup and drop-off from the Four Seasons Ocean Club. You’ll then spend the afternoon seeing the Exuma pigs, nurse sharks, underwater plane wrecks, and so much more. When evening comes, Bahamas Air Tours will fly you back to Nassau, getting you there in time for dinner! It’s an experience that all travelers, regardless of the length of their trips, should get to enjoy.
