The One&Only club is a luxury private resort situated on Paradise Island in the Bahamas. Once a private estate, One&Only Ocean Club rests between miles of pristine beach and exquisite gardens inspired by the romantic grandeur of Versailles. The resort owes its existence to Huntington Hartford II, the legendary 1950s playboy who bought the estate and converted it into a resort for his jet-set crowd. The current owners bought the resort in 1994 and spent $100 million refurbishing and expanding it to make it the ultra exclusive resort that it is today.
The One&Only Club offer its discerning guest complete seclusion and tranquility and hushed discreet service. The resort is graced by white sand beaches warm turquoise waters and a fabulous 35 acres of beautiful manicured gardens. Fragrant blossoms of hibiscus and bougainvillea, along with hand-laid rock ridges and stone steps, ascend the terraced garden decorated with bronze and marble statues from Europe. At its apex stand the dramatic arches of a 12th- century Augustinian cloister boasting spectacular sunset views over Nassau Harbor.
The resort features a full-service spa and fitness center, championship golf course, six tennis courts and complimentary non-motorized water sports. What sets this experience apart is the exemplary personal service that the resort offers each and every one of its guests. Each room is serviced by a personal butler.
