On a wintery weekend in Toronto the Ocean Club is the perfect luxury beach getaway. I have many friends who live on the island so this hotel is filled with wonderful memories for me. The first time I visted the Ocean Club my fantasy of being a Bond Girl came to life, as this romantic and lush oasis is the hotel where Casino Royale was filmed. There is something uniquely special about this little slice of paradise and it really does feel luxurious and relaxed. Dinners are easily arranged at the nearby Atlantis or on the larger island, I myself usually spend my days at the Ocean Club and head to Atlantis for dinner as they have some great restaurants like Nobu but my all time favourite is the The Ocean Club’s main restaurant Dune.
This hotel never feels over crowded and the staff to guest ratio is great. It has two main pools, one set in the gorgeous and tropical gardens, and a second infinity pool overlooking the ocean. The beach is perfect for afternoon strolls and the spa is small but wonderful. All in all this whole property feels intimate and quiet.
I recommend for everyone and anyone needing some pampering. The bonus of the OC is it allows you access to the larger Atlantis resort if days spent sipping rose and using indoor voices is too calm for you. My tip is to stay in the renovated side of the hotel as the rooms are vastly better than the older wing.
