The 5-star-hotel is offering a private jet package tailor-made to the number of people you are travelling with.
The Ocean Club is set along an 8-kilometre stretch of natural, white-sand beach on Paradise Island. According to Luxury Travel Magazine, the package was created in partnership with Net Jets.
The guests, fetched from their homes, are dropped at their private flight where they will enjoy a VIP treatment before landing at Nassau’s private airport.
