Overview

An abundance of amenities for guests who want to make the most of the island
A stay here is expensive

Nestled along an alabaster sand beach on Paradise Island, The Ocean Club boasts 107 guest rooms, suites and villas housed in a classic colonial mansion. Rooms offer spacious balconies or patios, 24-hour concierges, personal butlers, marble bathrooms and welcome amenities that include fruit, a hat and a beach bag. Guests here also have access to the beach, six tennis courts and an 18-hole golf course. What's more, lodgers at this Four Seasons outpost enjoy free access (and complimentary transport) to the facilities at the Atlantis Bahamas resort complex, including its 21 restaurants and 19 lounges. If you don't want to venture away from the resort, The Ocean Club provides an abundance of on-site eateries, including the Jean-Georges Vongerichten-affiliated DUNE restaurant, the Caribbean-inspired OCEAN eatery and a poolside terrace. The property is also home to two bars, one of which makes an appearance in the James Bond movie "Casino Royale." Overall, recent visitors praised the resort's location and well-maintained grounds; however, several lamented the lackluster customer service and cuisine, especially given the high room rates.

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.

Rooms in the original Hartford Wing are done in plantation style, with mahogany and cane furnishings. Those in the beachside Crescent Wing are more modern.

But for every A-lister and camera crew prancing about the breezy former private estate, there’s also a fitted-cap-wearing Mark Wahlberg walking about the premises in relative obscurity. It's obviously a fitting place for celebrities, but it’s one folks without a Hollywood agent will feel at home in as well.
