Lane and I had the best anniversary spending it at One Ocean, a boutique hotel in Atlantic Beach, Florida, and I don’t just say that because it is sponsored. I say this because we absolutely love the hotel, restaurant, and spa so much that we have been there multiple times! We love the aesthetic with calming blues and sea tones and we LOVE how it’s situated right on the beach for easy access. You just feel a sense of relaxation when you are staying there and that’s why we love coming back year after year. It’s nice to completely unwind sometimes and what better way than spending the weekend at One Ocean.
We arrived on Sunday afternoon and was quickly greeted by the valet drivers who are always so pleasant. We checked into our room and settled in, unpacking our bags for our nights stay! We had dinner reservations at 6:30pm that we were SO excited for. Their food is top of the line and so delicious. We relaxed in our room for an hour before we had to start getting ready for dinner.
Finally, 6:30 had come and we made our way down to Azurea, the restaurant inside One Ocean. If you are local and have not ventured out that way, please do so! When I tell you their food is so incredibly fresh and good, I mean it. It is on the pricier side, so that is why we love to go and celebrate milestones like our anniversary! We both had the filet that was cooked to perfection, then they treated us with anniversary chocolates that were so good! Best way to end the night. What I love about the Azurea is that they change the menu seasonly to ensure everything they are serving is in season! Lane and I had all intentions of walking on the beach that night, but we were so full we couldn’t move so we just watched tv until we fell asleep. Perfect night for me!
They also have The Lounge which is Azurea’s ultra chic lounge. I love the atmosphere of this place! Great for work happy hours or just needing a relaxing setting to unwind from the week. They have an outdoor patio where you can sit by a fire pit and enjoy the sound of the ocean waves too! They also have a bar out in the lobby that is open during select hours of the week and a bar by the pool area.
We woke up the following morning around 8am and headed straight to coffee! We had a morning spa appointment at 10:30am that we were so eager to head too. I was in much need of a massage. Y’all, it was the best massage ever. We had a couples massage and it was so relaxing and was just what we needed. Lane was so zen afterwards, it was cute! A little more about the spa – it is full-service with beautiful views of the rolling surf. A sensory stimulating journey in an intimate setting, The Spa offers marine-inspired rituals comprised of specialty treatments, unique massage styles, body wraps, peels, facials and more. Separate men’s and women’s lounges are available to ensure a comfortable experience for all, while the meditation lounge overlooking the Atlantic Ocean allows guests the chance to share the experience. The eight treatment rooms include private oceanfront VIP suites, with in-room Swedish showers. The spa is also home to an invigorating Vichy Room, soothing whirlpool tub in the women’s lounge and pampering salon.
We seriously had the best time! One Ocean knows how to spoil us and we love coming back! If you’re planning a trip to North Florida in the future, definitely check it out or if you are looking for a little staycation weekend – this is the perfect hotel for you!
