Also on Paradise Island you will find the Ocean Club once a private estate, which rests between miles of pristine beach and exquisite gardens inspired by the romantic grandeur of Versailles. Fragrant blossoms of hibiscus and bougainvillea, along with hand-laid rock ridges and stone steps, ascend the terraced garden decorated with bronze and marble statues from Europe. At its apex stands the dramatic arches of a 12th-century Augustinian cloister that boasts a spectacular view of the sunset over Nassau Harbour. Within this secluded oasis, exemplary personal service defines the heart of Ocean Club.
