Fodor's Expert Review One & Only Ocean Club
Ocean Club Dr., Paradise Island, New Providence Island, Bahamas
Once the private hideaway of A&P heir Huntington Hartford, this exclusive resort on magnificent Cabbage Beach's quietest stretch provides the ultimate in understated—and decidedly posh—elegance. Its Versailles Gardens includes 35 acres of terraced serenity and an imported French cloister. Set amid private gardens, the spacious colonial-style rooms have intricately carved furniture, marble bathrooms, and private butlers. Special touches include unpacking service, a pillow menu, and champagne and strawberries in the afternoon. The open-air restaurant, Dune, is perched over the beach.
