If you’ve seen the James Bond flick Casino Royale, you’ve caught a glimpse of this breezy Bahamian resort on Paradise Island’s northern shore. From the whitewashed front porch and views of the Caribbean Sea, to the fresh lemonade welcome drinks and check-in performed in the cozy library, this colonial-style resort makes an excellent first impression, and continues to impress with features like an adults-only pool and attentive service in the form of a private butler. Rooms and Suites have a colonial, island-preppy look, with dark wood floors, white linens and jaunty striped rugs and cushions. Flat-screen TVs, iPod docks and WiFi help keep you connected no matter which room you pick, though spacious suites are worth the splurge for the private terraces overlooking the gardens, beach and Caribbean Sea. Afternoons see chilled champagne and chocolate-dipped strawberries delivered to all guests. While Four Seasons offers a kids program and a family pool, the resort is also suited to romantic getaways or grown-up gangs of vacationers who will enjoy the championship golf course and the award-winning spa. Each of the Balinese-style treatment suites has its own waterfall shower, daybed, and hot tub in a private garden. Just above Cabbage Beach is a large wooden deck—ideal for yoga. On the food front, Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s Dune restaurant serves elegant French-Asian dishes like roasted Nassau grouper in a Christian Liaigre-designed dining room, while the historic Courtyard Terrace offers a romantic, candlelit setting for Mediterranean-influenced dinner fare. For more casual dining, snag a seat at the Clubhouse overlooking the 9th and 18th holes of the golf course or hit the poolside café.
In the Area
Four Seasons provides complimentary transportation to sister property Atlantis, a mega-resort with a casino that offers blackjack, roulette, Caribbean stud poker, baccarat, craps and hundreds of slot machines 24 hours a day. There’s also an extensive list of dining options here, including famous chains such as Nobu, Mesa Grill, Carmine’s, Virgil’s BBQ and Ben & Jerry’s. Families can brush up on marine science with the Atlantis Aquarist for the Day program—hand-feed stingrays and go behind the scenes of the resort’s huge marine habitats. Golf fans will want to take a turn on the championship golf course, where players get jaw-dropping Paradise Island views from every hole.
How to Get There
Our room, in the main building, garden facing. Wide sliding doors opened to let in the very private garden. Great open room layout, bathroom with dual pocket doors. Nice touches in the butler service--champagne and berries every afternoon to your room. Turndown with Leonidas chocolates. Why leave the room? Lovely courtyard, the pools, beach, restaurant and the 13th century French cloister brought over and reassembled piece by piece. The resort is set back from the road and fronts the beach. The adult pool frames the cloister that goes back up the hill from the hotel. All around the property the illusion of wild palm jungle, but groomed and lovely. Restaurant offered high quality options. Our Valentine's Day dinner was special and routine breakfasts had everything you might want. Service is upscale island and while not quite at the pace or attentiveness of major cities, is friendly and working to cater to your needs. When you venture out of the Ocean Club, the hotel's car service goes anywhere on Paradise Island. We didn't want to leave after our week.
This hotel is perfect in every way. The staff is very freindly and helpful. The butler service is a plus. They spoiled us rotten. The restaurant has exceptional sevice and food. The entire hotel is soyless and beautiful.

I you enjoy fine wine, cuisine in a perfect setting this is it. Soft sand beach which is very quiet and provides every amenity expected in a Four Seasons Beach Resort you will like this hotel. Great tennis courts and spa with three exceptional pools to enjoy if you can manage to stay away from the beach, Total battery recharge.
We really enjoyed our tay at The Rosewood Baha Mar for the first 3 days of our trip to the Bahamas in Feb 2019. We LOOOOOOVED the last 3 days of our trip trip there as we split it up and stayed at the Ocean Club Four Seasons. Night and day difference in quality of service, food and ambiance.
This property takes the Bahamas experience to a whole new level. Now that the Four Seasons has taken ownership, it's even better! The new Infinity Pool and Family Pool are welcome additions. The water is unlike any other water on earth, thanks to the coral reef that breaks the waves for you! Excellent drinks, food and service that's beyond anything else you'll find in the Bahamas. Must see the Versailles gardens in back - breathtaking. We went to Atlantis for a half-day and wished we hadn't wasted our time taking a moment away from this Oasis.
