Jacksonville Beach hotels accommodate millions of travelers annually, visiting one of the best beach vacation spots in the United States and the home of many beautiful Florida beaches. Miles of sugar white sand is a top attraction, and being surrounded by scores of entertainment options, both natural and man made, doesn’t hurt. There is literally no lack of things to do in Jacksonville, which fronts the pretty St John’s River. Nightlife, dining, and shopping reign throughout the area with many hotels in ideal positions between the relaxing Atlantic shores and near the thrill of the downtown core. History, art, and theater take lead in the cultural side of things while attractions like Jacksonville Zoo & Gardens, Southbank Riverwalk, and Kingsley Plantation are magnetic.

One Ocean Resort might attract guests for its intriguing, contemporary name, but it keeps them locked in its hospitable graces with a phenomenal design, world-class hospitality, and irresistible location in Atlantic Beach. Beaches Town Center, with cobbled paths leading to exclusive shops, restaurants, and entertainment options, is directly across the way. North of Ponte Vedra and south of beautiful Amelia Island, Jacksonville Beach is a few minutes drive away. One Ocean is completely ocean-inspired, from lobby waterfalls to rare shell adornments, and beach-themed art. All windows and patios dutifully put the waterfront on distinct display. Luxury is always on the forefront, with guest rooms and suites painted in earth-toned hues and draped in the most lavish of textiles, all meant to soothe and comfort while taking in the ocean view (each room has one). As one of the top luxury Jacksonville Beach hotels, One Ocean wholly deserves all accolades.
