Four Seasons is set to add a new Caribbean resort in the Bahamas with a new agreement to manage the Ocean Club on Paradise Island.
Starting November 30, 2017, the property will be rebranded as The Ocean Club, A Four Seasons Resort, Bahamas. A number of enhancements for the property are planned ahead of its debut under the Four Seasons flag, although no details were shared at this time.
The Ocean Club, which first opened in 1962, has a five-mile white sand beach, as well as a series of Versailles-inspired lawns and gardens surrounding a series of low-level buildings housing more than 100 accommodations, including several cottages and villas. The resort also has five restaurants and bars, including DUNE by Michelin-starred Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, as well as a spa, three pools, and six tennis courts. Guests also get access to the adjacent Tom Weiskopf-designed Ocean Club golf course. Several indoor and outdoor event spaces for up to 250 guests are also available on site.
The move marks the latest Caribbean expansion for Four Seasons. In October 2016, the company assumed management of the Viceroy Anguilla resort, rebranding it as the Four Seasons Resort and Private Residences Anguilla. That property has 166 accommodations, including dedicated resort guest rooms, private residences, villas and vacation rental units. The Four Seasons Resort Nevis also recently announced a number of upgrades, including the opening of new casual restaurant Kastawey Beach Bar.
