Four Seasons has a loyal following, and it’s a brand that a lot of people swear by. What I love about Four Seasons is how varied the properties are, as Four Seasons has some great resorts in the US (in particular in Hawaii, Jackson Hole, Orlando, Santa Fe, Surfside, and Vail), but the brand also has great resorts outside the US (like in Anguilla, Bora Bora, Costa Rica, Los Cabos, and Paris).
If you’re looking to travel internationally but don’t want to go far, it’s hard to compete with the Four Seasons Ocean Club Resort in the Bahamas.
In this post I wanted to cover the basics of the Four Seasons Bahamas, and also share the best ways to maximize value for stays at the resort (which is to take advantage of promotions and book through a Four Seasons Preferred Partner agent).
Four Seasons Ocean Club Bahamas Basics
The Four Seasons Bahamas is located on the north shore of Paradise Island. The resort is known as the Ocean Club, and that gets at the history of this property — until the mid 20th century, this was a little-used islet known as Hog Island. This hotel was even featured prominently in the 2006 James Bond film “Casino Royale.”
The 106-room resort has five restaurants and bars, a Balinese-inspired spa, five miles of white-sand beach, three swimming pools, six tennis courts, and more.
To get to the Four Seasons Bahamas you’ll want to fly into Lynden Pindling International Airport in Nassau (NAS), and from there it’s a short 40 minute drive by car to the resort. Nassau is just a short flight from the US, particularly if you’re coming from South Florida.

Note that none of these promotions are combinable, so you have to choose which of these offers you’d like to take advantage of. Furthermore, the rates you’ll see on Four Seasons’ website already reflect any eligible discounts.
Book With Four Seasons Preferred Partner
If you are going to book the Four Seasons Bahamas, you should absolutely book through a Travel Advisor who is affiliated with Four Seasons Preferred Partner. This is a program available to select Travel Advisors, where they can add value for your stays without it costing you anything extra.
Four Seasons Preferred Partner offers extra perks like daily breakfast, room upgrades, resort credits, and more, all at no additional cost to the guest. Four Seasons Preferred Partner can be combined with any of the above promotions, including the fourth night free offer.

Just to give an example, the Four Seasons Ocean Club charges a minimum of an extra $50 per night for a rate that includes breakfast, though through Preferred Partner you can get that at no extra cost.
If you’re booking Four Seasons and you’re not doing so through a Preferred Partner agent then you’re doing it wrong.
If you’d like to make a booking at the Four Seasons Ocean Club Bahamas to get the best deal, and/or have a question about Preferred Partner, you can reach out to Ford at [email protected]. Travel Advisors may even be able to help if you already have existing bookings.

Four Seasons Bahamas Summary
The Four Seasons Ocean Club Bahamas is a hidden gem with quite a history. This isn’t your typical cookie cutter resort, but rather features quite a bit of old-world charm, as its history dates back so many decades.
International destinations from the US don’t get much closer than the Bahamas, which is another draw to this place. You can fly nonstop to Nassau from several cities in the US, and then it’s just a short drive to the resort — no flight connection or boat transfer required.
Hopefully the above gives a good overview of the property. If you are going to book the Four Seasons Ocean Club Bahamas, make sure you’re at least maximizing value by booking through a Preferred Partner agent, who can help you take advantage of any promotions, and add even further perks.
