The Ocean View Club

The islands of Caribbean are really outdoing themselves on the small, intimate boutique hotel front. One place is still on our radar in the two years since we wrote about it is Belle Mont Farm in St Kitts, and we will feature another breathtaking property later in the year, but first up is this report in two parts on our new favourite: The Ocean View Club. 

We fell in love with this property - a small, family-run hotel located in the Bahamas - several years ago drawn initially by the stylish but relaxed atmosphere. The owners seem to relish the exclusivity of the resort so we are not sure they'll appreciate us publicising it here, but nevertheless the property - both inside and out - is too stunning not to be featured. 

The hotel is made up of an eclectic mix of accommodations: there are five cabins, which include two tent cottages and three beach shacks, and seven rooms which vary in size from suites to ocean view rooms to small kids' rooms. While they may be called "shacks", this is as far from roughing it as you can get. The cabins are beautifully appointed with four poster beds, ensuite bathrooms and unobstructed views of the ocean. Some have large sun decks and outdoor clawfoot tubs. Ocean view rooms are located in the main house as are the kids' rooms are cozy. There is also a small restaurant on site which caters to house guests and which serves a combination of locally-grown and sourced produce. All in all, The Ocean View Club encapsulates the best the Caribbean has to offer: exclusivity without sacrificing style. Look out for part two next week.
