Smile at the wondrous sky through gently swaying palms, welcome the day from the island’s highest peak or explore tropical forests in all their glory before sipping a chilled wine on a pier over the reef. Out yonder, take a deep breath before submerging into the turquoise sea and a whole new world. From pure tranquility to adrenaline fuelled water adventures, the One Cay Island House offers barefoot, board short sophistication with a laidback vibe. This is pure island time. Your chef preparing freshly caught seafood with fresh pickings from the island’s own orchard and garden, the dive master guiding you to the best underwater spots, social drinks and tunes at sundown or just enough ‘you-time’ to become one again. The Island House is something and everything.
