Hidden in a valley in the center of Providenciales there’s a private oasis where nature is landscaped to provide the perfect backdrop to your island getaway. One on Marlin Resort is a boutique property dedicated to providing singles and couples with a uniquely curated and indulgent escape from the hum-drum of everyday life.
The contemporary one-bedroom suites reflect an epicurean lifestyle with well-equipped, modern amenities including a well-equipped kitchen, balcony, and en-suite bathroom, as well as space and reliable Wi-Fi to check in with ‘the real world,’ should it be required. Suites are perfect for a single escape, business travelers, or as a couples’ retreat, providing a considered haven to return to after a day spent on the world’s number one beach.
Activities and Attractions
The small resort packs a punch when it comes to amenities. Guests have access to the Alive and Well Resorts Beach Club only four minutes away from the resort at the Bight Beach and includes private umbrellas, chairs, beach towels, beverage service, and a reliable solar-powered beach mobile that moves between the beach club and the resort frequently. Furthermore, guests looking for a bit more beach action can give stand-up paddleboarding a try, or attempt sailing on a Hobie cat. Just up the road from One on Marlin is Kokomo Botanical Resort, the nearby sister resort. Here, resort guests can dive into the cool, fresh waters of the Oasis pool, or slip into the saltwater plunge pool and spend the day on the comfortable chaise lounges situated under shady trees. Enjoy a spa treatment in the comfort of your own suite, or in the tropical gardens after a light breakfast to get the day going.
Kokomo Botanical Resort and WE Kitchen
Not to be missed is the WE Kitchen restaurant, located on Kokomo’s premises—a multi-level spot that accommodates both al fresco and indoor dining. A pre-dinner cocktail is the perfect way to toast the sunset before enjoying dinner prepared by the resident chef. Choose from a considered menu that draws inspiration from the property’s gardens.
This property is perfectly situated for convenient access to local bars, restaurants, and shopping. Transportation can be arranged should guests want to explore what the island has to offer, and a complimentary mobile phone is provided in each suite to easily dial the resort, or your driver when you are ready to be collected.
Beyond the Resort
A hidden gem located not too far from the resort is Bob’s Bar and Eats. Overlooking South Side Marina, Bob’s is a favorite hangout of seasoned locals, serving up delicious fare and cocktails. Highlights include the smoked conch mac-and-cheese, crispy filo-wrapped baked brie, a variety of poutine dishes, and a selection of flatbreads including the ‘sea bounty’—served with white truffle sauce, lobster when it’s in season, smoked conch, scallions, mozzarella, and Parmesan cheese. Pop in on a Wednesday evening to enjoy the sounds of Provo residents as they come together each week to play live music and sing the night away.
If you’re looking for an opportunity to completely unplug without having to think about any of the logistics of your holiday, the resort can assist you in customizing your vacation experience. From airport pick-up and drop-off, golfing packages, curated celebrations, ocean cruises, and even a paradise photographic package to professionally capture memories for a lifetime, the resort offers multiple customization options to choose from before or during your visit.
If scuba diving is your main objective, then this property is certainly a great choice as it’s located only a short drive up the road from South Side Marina. Speak to the concierge to arrange a half-day snorkel tour or sunset cruise.
Staff and management go out of their way to provide guests with a bespoke island experience, where the focus is on living well, but not outside of one’s means. The peace and tranquility of the property lend itself to a completely private escape, and the amenities provided are accessible with ease, to ensure that you leave in a better state of mind than when you arrived.
