ONE OCEAN RESORT / JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA
“Paradise on the Atlantic Ocean”

What makes a resort something special?  Is it the accommodations, the staff, the food and / or the location? To me a world class resort is about “service.” Now combine that with all of the above and you have discovered ONE OCEAN RESORT in Atlantic Beach / Neptune Beach (Jacksonville) Florida.  This is the first property to be opened under The Gallery which is Remington’s Signature Collection of luxury hotels. www.oneoceanresort.com
 
This is not just another property located directly on the ocean with all the amenities, as it is truly a “one stop vacation opportunity” for the entire family. The resort is surrounded by a wonderful village with many shops, boutiques, and more.  When I tell you to valet park your car, I mean you will not need it until you are ready to go home.
 
On entrance to ONE OCEAN RESORT you will probably be greeted by John Dixon who has been there since it opened.  He will direct you to the registration desk.  At that point you become” friends” of the One Ocean staff and there is a sense of relaxation that immediately takes over your busy and stressful day.  From that moment on you have become a “recognizable person / guest” where the staff members sincerely seek to make your stay a memorable experience. The lobby is open and has a sculptured water fountain accented with glass bubbles dripping water as if under the sea.  The purpose of everything in the Resort is to bring the ocean and all of it adventures inside for you to enjoy.
 
After registration you are escorted to your room with your luggage. The room is spacious, beautifully appointed, flat screen TV, sound machine with radio clock, a comfortable bed adorned with quality linens and plush pillows and Wi-Fi for your needs. Once you have arrived in your room, there is a doorbell ring at your door as your DOCENT has arrived.  The Docent ensures every guest’s individual needs are exceeded for the length of their stay.  They will unpack your items, stock your personal amenity cabinet, steam your clothes, offer turndown service and accommodate any of your most luxurious wishes including a stocked refrigerator.  Whatever you need, the Docent will be there.  There is also a one touch service on call 24 hours to help you with anything to make your stay more comfortable.  Now that is a real “unique and individualized experience!”
 
ONE OCEAN RESORT offers many opportunities including the Spa at One Ocean located facing the ocean for total relaxation, the award winning Azurea Restaurant under the direction of Executive Chef Ted Peters, the Sea Turtles Kid’s Club where you can leave the kids and enjoy your evenings alone.  There are cocktail lounges, including the Tiki bar and outside fireplace with chic and comfortable furniture for the drink of your choice and one of those special martinis.  The heated pool has comfortable lounge chairs located directly on the ocean and there you can have a private cabana taken to the beach for your special use during the day.
 
From the golfer, the bride, the business person and the family, this is the place where glamour explodes around every corner.  The staircase in the lobby is very “Gone With The Wind” and the bar that comes to life each evening, as if it the opening night of a Broadway Show, is under the direction of Hugh Thompson.  Believe me the reviews are in and they guarantee a “long run!” By-the-way his three sons Cody, Evan and Tristan are top surfers and champions and can be seen in all the leading Surfer Magazines.
 
I want to go back to the award winning spa at ONE OCEAN.  You can certainly leave all of your rushed sensations at the door.  From entrance your are robed and seated in the meditative lounge facing the ocean and sand dunes draped with sea oats.  There you can enjoy the floor-to-the ceiling aqua sculpture, organic Juice Bar and prepare yourself for a few “paradise moments.”  The spa offers a Vichy Room, VIP Suites for couples and groups, private men’s and women’s areas, and more.  The staff is very personable and qualified for your relaxing experience.
 
Finally, this is the place for any form of receptions, gatherings whether your group is large or small.  From the magnificent ballroom to the outdoor patios for any kind of weather, ONE OCEAN RESORT can meet all of your requirements. For reservations and additional information call 904-247-0305.
Next week I will be introduce you to the head Executive Chef, Ted Peters, and offer one of his delicious recipes for you to try at home.  Azurea at ONE OCEAN presents “Coriander Dusted Chilean Sea Bass Spiny Lobster and Mango Gastrique, Coriander Emulsion.”
 
My personal thank you to Shirley, Director of Sales for One Ocean, Betty, Corporate Sales Director and Public Relations and Jordon, Sales and Public Relations.
