|New York – October 14, 2014: One&Only Ocean Club, the romantic luxury retreat in The Bahamas, has expanded its team of celebration, wedding and honeymoon specialists to highlight the resort’s wealth of opportunities for special events and gatherings.
Led by the newly appointed Crystal Folz, the One&Only Ocean Club Weddings & Special Affairs Coordinator, the dedicated One&Only Ocean Club celebrations team oversees all weddings, honeymoons and special celebrations at the resort – handling every detail from assisting with wedding proposals, planning resort weddings of all sizes and ensuring a seamless honeymoon experience. With over 20 years combined experience in the industry, the expert team also plans and coordinates a wide range of celebrations, from the smallest of gatherings, to exclusive use of the entire resort for a group to enjoy privately.
The resort’s selection of unique venues offers spectacular scenery and oceanfront views, including The Beach Deck – an exceptional location for nuptials, intimate dining receptions, or the perfectly planned proposal; the Pool Terrace – an ideal place for larger celebrations overlooking the Versailles Pool; the iconic Versailles Gardens – providing a magical backdrop for wedding ceremonies and receptions; and the 12th-century Augustinian Cloisters, boasting breathtaking views of the sunset over Nassau Harbor. Guests can also enjoy an intimate celebration on the beach, in their private villa or amid the resort’s luscious gardens where imaginative event set-ups can be arranged by One&Only Ocean Club’s skilled conference and banqueting team.
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, provides an unparalleled level of gourmet fare. Perched atop a white sand beach amidst dramatic ocean views, Dune serves as an ideal venue for celebrations – offering an innovative blend of French-Asian cuisine infused with local herbs and Bahamian influences. Private dining experiences can be coordinated with the dedicated team, including private after-dinner cocktails on the Dune deck or in The Library.
Guest rooms, suites and private villas at One&Only Ocean Club all offer spacious living areas, patios or balconies and boast either garden or ocean views. The resort’s KidsOnly club keeps children busy throughout the day whilst a professional babysitting service gives parents the freedom to enjoy their evening event.
One&Only Spa offers a variety of pre-celebration and wedding services to help guests prepare for the day ahead. The bride and group 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. To ensure total seclusion and a personalized service, 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.
