Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
BAHAMAS — There’s a lot of baggage involved with travel – literally. From luggage fees to cramped overhead compartments, travelling with bags can be a major hassle.
This is why The Ocean Club, A Four Seasons Resort in the Bahamas is offering a pretty awesome solution: curated wardrobe collections from its very own boutique, Carlo Milano. This means there’s no need to pack even a small carry-on – everything is provided for you once you arrive!
There are three collections to choose from, each with its own distinct look. ‘The Beachgoer’ is for laidback guests who prefer to chill at DUNE Bar during happy hour, while ‘The Weekender’ includes chic pieces from Ocean Club’s Versace Bahamas Boutique that are perfect for late-night cocktails. Lastly, ‘The Jetsetter’ is for those who dress to impress, featuring eveningwear and glittering accessories.
Sounds pretty cool, right? But here’s the catch – each of the collections will set you back a pretty penny.
The Beachgoer is priced at US$15,000 per couple. The Weekender comes at a cost of $30,000 per couple. And The Jetsetter, which includes a timepiece from the Hublot Bahamas Boutique or a bracelet and ring from Carl Milano’s own ‘Into the Blue collection’, goes for a whopping $100,000 per couple.
Gives you a whole new appreciation for those paltry $30 baggage fees, huh?
The hefty price tags, however, may be just a drop in the bucket for luxury travellers, including those staying at the upscale Ocean Club. And one can argue that you’re definitely getting your money’s worth. Anyone who purchases a collection consult with a dedicated stylist from Carlo Milano’s team prior to arrival, and are then met at the terminal bridge for expedited customs clearance. They’re then whisked away to The Ocean Club where champagne awaits them at the boutique for a fitting and round of style edits.
And once all the pampering is done, the Resort’s Butler will hand-deliver the ready-to-wear, customized collection to your door. Talk about white-glove service!
Wardrobes are based on a three-night/four-day stay at The Ocean Club, A Four Seasons Resort. VIP airport service in and out of Lynden Pindling International Airport is priced at $225 for up to four people.
