OneOcean is an expertly curated collection of six star services, destinations, as well as superyacht marinas in some of the world’s most beautiful locations. Its very first destination, OneOcean Club in Barcelona, will launch in November 2014. It will be an exclusive private members club available to yacht owners, their guests, captains, crew and residents, as well as business owners of the city.
Taking inspiration from the existing natural and urban landscape the striking OneOcean Club is designed to reflect the rounded geometry of the hull of a yacht. Exclusively designed for Marina Port Vell by architects Sergi Carulla and Oscar Blasco (SCOB) and manufactured by Catalonian company Escofet, the white concrete lattice that surrounds the building reflects the light structures that Port Vell fisherman erect whilst repairing fishing nets.
The first OneOcean Club venue will offer a discreet alternative to rival the best of the Catalan capital’s 22 Michelin Star restaurants. Having honed his skills at an impressive roll call of Michelin Star establishments, from the pillar of French haute cuisine, Georges Blanc to Basque favourite, Arzak head chef Llorenc Valls will oversee the club’s 400 cover restaurant. Joining from his previous position as Executive Chef at the five star Mandarin Oriental in Barcelona, Catalan born Valls marries both his heritage and expertise to bring a fresh, creative take on classic Catalan cuisine to the OneOcean Club.
Catalan produce is highly sought after, and Vall personally sources the pick of the crop from nearby La Boqueria market to bring his menu to life.
Overlooking the historic Born quarter, the covered terrace area is the perfect spot for dining al fresco under the Mediterranean sunshine all year round, while the elegant cocktail bar offers a serene waterside space away from the bustle of the city.
As well as fine dining, OneOcean Club guests can also enjoy a host of first class complementary facilities recognised for their exceptional quality in The Gallery, a secondary newly built state of the art building on site at Marina Port Vell. These include a dedicated business centre with private meeting rooms, peaceful spa treatment rooms alongside a state of the art gym and sundeck complete with daybeds. Captains and crew are especially well catered for with their own lounge including a relaxation area and games room.
Bringing together one of Europe’s hottest up and coming chefs with a host of unrivalled lifestyle amenities, OneOcean Club offers a world-class home away from home in one of the finest oceanfront locations.
