Four Seasons Takes Over Management of The Ocean Club on Paradise Island


The Four Seasons now operates The Ocean Club resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas, adding one more property to its Caribbean collection. Indeed, the Ocean Club is now part of the Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts family. Now known as The Ocean Club, A Four Seasons Resort, Bahamas, the property is owned by Access Industries, the conglomerate founded by billionaire Len Blavatnik, who serves as its chairman.

The changeover took place on November 30 and The Ocean Club is no longer a One & Only property managed by Kerzner International. The Four Seasons also operates resorts on Nevis and Anguilla.

The Ocean Club is known for its Versasilles-inspired lawns and gardens that surround a series of low-level buildings that house more than 100 accommodations including several cottages and villas. There are five restaurants and bars, including the well-known Dune restaurant, which is operated by Michelin-starred Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Dune will continue to operate under the new Four Seasons management as it did for The One & Only team. Continue Reading
