“Our specialists are passionate about creating the most unforgettable celebration experience for you and your special guests. This is a moment in time that can never be duplicated and we strive to make it a true One&Only experience,” says Anna Wilson, VP of Weddings and Special Affairs. “At Ocean Club there is no limit to what we can do.

With all the offerings and amenities at Ocean Club including full access to the water attractions at Atlantis for families, a wedding party simply never wants to leave.”

The Big Day - Destination Weddings

Couples who choose to marry at One&Only Ocean Club will enjoy individual attention from a dedicated on-site Celebrations Specialist there to assist couples with the planning of their special day every step of the way. One&Only Ocean Club provides bridal couples and their guests with a complete tropical wedding destination through a variety of accommodations, luxurious spa and world-class dining with specialty catered menus by Michelin-stared chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. In addition, wedding parties enjoy unlimited access to nearby Atlantis with a 141-acre waterscape comprised of beautiful pools and tropical foliage, sprawling 18-hole golf course and vibrant on-island nightlife.

One&Only Ocean Club boasts unique and exclusive wedding and reception venues with the most spectacular scenery and oceanfront views for your wedding in paradise. The Beach Deck overlooking the spectacular Bahamian waters is an exceptional location for nuptials, intimate dining receptions, or the perfectly planned proposal. For larger celebrations, the Pool Terrace, overlooking the Versailles Pool serves as an elegant location while the iconic Versailles Gardens creates a whimsical setting for both ceremonies and receptions.  The 12th-century Augustinian Cloisters, with breathtaking views of the sunset over Nassau Harbour, take couples back in time and create the backdrop for a truly regal affair.

The Cuisine

Whether it is catering a reception for 200 guests or coordinating a private dinner for two on the beachfront pavilion, One&Only Ocean Club’s signature restaurant Dune by Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s provides an unparalleled level of gourmet fare. Perched atop a white sand beach amidst dramatic ocean views, Dune serves as an ideal reception venue offering an innovative blend of French-Asian cuisine infused with local herbs and Bahamian influences for a truly unexpected dining experience. Custom menus and private dining experiences can be coordinated with your celebration consultant including exclusive after dinner cocktails on the Dune deck or The Library – which most recently served as the backdrop for James Bond’s latest blockbuster Casino Royale.

For a reception under the stars, the historic Courtyard Terrace is considered one of the most elegant settings on Paradise Island, where guests dine around a candle-lit fountain pool. The incomparable menu features unique selections such as Lobster and Lamb Carpaccio, Iberico Belotta Ham, Moroccan Veal, Roasted Eggplant with Polenta and Yellow Fin Tuna “Cannelloni” with Stone Crab.

The Spa

The Spa at One&Only Ocean Club offers a wide array of pre-wedding services to get the bridal party prepared for the day ahead. The bride and her attendants can reserve one of the spa’s two salon suites where they can have everything from their hair to their nails done in a private setting.

An intimate and exclusive spa facility that easily rivals any in the Caribbean and perhaps the world, the One&Only Spa features a fusion of ancient Asian holistic philosophies with uniquely Bahamian hospitality and serene, lush surroundings.  To make each guest’s spa experience as personalized and indulgent as possible, the spa is comprised of eight private spa villas, where guests can enjoy their treatments in complete sanctuary – whether for a few hours or a half-day, on their own or as a couple.  The luxuriously appointed, Balinese-style villas are designed so that guests can enjoy all of their facial and body treatments in the same place, with each specialized therapist coming to them.  

The Honeymoon

The exclusive residential-style Villas at One&Only Ocean Club provide the perfect honeymoon escape. Perched above the beach, the three- and four-bedroom Villas are the resort’s most luxurious accommodation at over 409 sq. m./4,400ft2, an ideal if not indulgent option for couples. The exceptional villa experience is masterminded by a dedicated Villa Host, always nearby to ensure the perfection of every detail. Couples can enjoy a private breakfast for two prepared by your Villa Host before luxuriating in a couples villa for a two-hour massage.

Outside the villa and spa, honeymooning couples will find an array of activities both relaxing and invigorating to keep them occupied throughout their stay. The Ocean Club Golf Course features an 18-hole championship course created by famed pro golfer and course designer Tom Weiskopf.  The course offers seaside green and tee settings, alternating fairways, lakes and a new clubhouse, all boasting expansiv views of the azure sea.  A freshwater pool overlooks the resort’s famed terraced “Versailles” gardens neighboring a state-of-the-art fitness center and six Har-Tru tennis courts (four lit for night play), with long time tennis pro Leo Rolle.

In the evening, couples at One&Only Ocean Club can choose from private dinners on their terrace catered by Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s signature restaurant Dune or venture off the property to try Japanese cuisine at the acclaimed Nobu restaurant by Michelin-starred chef Nobu Matsuhisa or Mesa Grill by celebrity Chef Bobby Flay at Atlantis.
