On the heels of its 60th anniversary, The Ocean Club, A Four Seasons Resort, in the Bahamas, recently unveiled fully renovated guestrooms and suites.

The Bahamian chic aesthetic features aqua, grey, taupe and gold; gold bamboo-framed mirrors; deep-soaking bathtubs; and a custom curved wall mosaic. Suites boast separate living and bed rooms, with a powder room and full bathroom. Each category includes a private terrace or balcony, overlooking either the Atlantic Ocean or the resort’s verdant lawn with hammocks and Adirondack chairs. Updates to the garden-level guestrooms include large daybeds on the terrace.
Other on-site amenities at The Ocean Club, A Four Seasons Resort include three pools; newly updated and poolside Ocean Blu, offering all-day dining; beachside service; the complimentary Kids For All Seasons Camp; and 35 landscaped acres.

Guests also enjoy a fitness center with classes, six tennis courts, water sports and the 18-hole Ocean Club Golf Course.
