Dune Bar at the Ocean Club | It really is better in The Bahamas!

I am sitting here listening to Apple Music and I’m transported to my favorite beach bar on Paradise Island in The Bahamas.  Dune Bar is perched above the beach and is the lounge for Dune, Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s French-Asian restaurant at the One & Only Ocean Club.

Dune Bar is always my “soft landing” after a visit to the Ocean Club’s pampering spa.  Since I’m always hungry when I emerge from the spa a visit to Dune Bar for cocktails and a nosh is the perfect way to glide in the vague direction of my evening.  Wood shutters tucked away maximizing the views of the Bahamian sea, gentle breeze and all.  Welcoming bartenders with serious bartending skills ready to craft you the perfect cocktail.  I suggest you order food too.  I love the easy elegance of the Ocean Club.

Time at the Ocean Club is definitely a #LifeIsGood moment

Breezy luxe awaits…

I stay down the beach at either the Cove or Royal Towers at Atlantis but I love the spa at the Ocean Club’s breezy luxe on a smaller scale via their private spa villas.  Guests of Atlantis and Ocean Club can room charge at both resorts making it easy and convenient.  Also, there are shuttles that run between Atlantis and the Ocean Club so it’s easy to enjoy the best of what each resort has to offer.

When I book a getaway to Paradise Island I always book my spa appointments and dinner reservations stateside.  This eliminates waiting for a table and time wasted trying to decide where to have dinner plus I get the spa treatments I want on the vacation schedule I prefer.  These two tips leave plenty of time for spontaneity which is important since a getaway should never be about “being on the clock”.

I have so many fun things to share about my adopted home-away-from-home so this is the first in a series about the Bahamas.  Enjoy the day!

California Dreamin’ | Dior Cruise 2018 | Full runway show

Maria Grazia Chiuri’s first cruise collection for Dior is a rustically chic and luxurious nod to nature California-style.  Moët champagne flowed while two hot-air balloons floated in the background bearing the words “Dior Sauvage”.

Ms. Chiuri allowed the natural California elements to inspire the collection, which is rich with artisanal details of feathers, fringe and fur “painted” in deep hues of desert colors.  Watch the full runway show above which took place atop a mountain in the Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve in Calabasas, California.
