HKS, Jeffrey Beers collaborate on One&Only Ocean Club enhancements

One&Only Ocean Club in the Caribbean unveiled resort-wide enhancements. During the five-month renovation, accommodations in the Hartford Wing were given a complete redesign, and the new infinity-edge Ocean Pool and Ocean Pool Grill were added. The renovation is a collaboration between HKS Architects (HKS) and Jeffrey Beers International (JBI).

The property used to be the private estate of A&P heir Huntington Hartford II.

With the renovation of the Hartford Wing, each accommodation was increased by 110 square feet to include terraces or balconies with views of the ocean and resort gardens, a first in the resort's 53-year history. Each of the wing's 52 rooms and suites received custom-designed furnishings, fabrics and color schemes that reflect the palette of the Bahamas.
