Since the redevelopment of Ocean House in 2010, new hotels and restaurants have slowly begun to join our collection.

Although unique in character, each property shares a passion for the values that define our collection and its special promise to our guests.

Each hotel and restaurant shares this philosophy: Exceptional, discreet and professional service is an essential part of the experience, ensuring that all customers feel like honored guests rather than paying visitors.
