Paradise at the Edge
Another silver lining of the pandemic, since diners were looking for outdoor options even as the off-season encroached, has resulted in the property shifting from a 3-season venue to year-round. The temporary enclosure with ten heated igloos that enveloped Ocean Terrace, known as “The Frost Bar” prompted a focus on dining that kept the resort open through the winter of 2020/2021.
Executive Chef and Director of Food & Beverage Administration, Philip Flath, who oversees all of the food and beverage at the resort, says the last year has certainly had its challenges. “But my staff is absolutely the best. If we hadn’t had them we would never have been able to increase our offerings, let along just make it through.” That dedication and commitment is evident with every dish and every beverage served across the entire property.
After all of the indulgence in the irresistible food and beverages that are available across the resort, a spa day is also on the menu. The Beach House Spa that is open to the public, is a serene, breezy oasis for couples to pamper and recharge. With massages ranging from classic to immune boosting and the resort’s signature Beach House Massage, to mani/pedis and facials, there’s no limit to the ways guests can unwind and relax. Not only does the spa offer a premiere location right on the Cape, but it is very connected to the community and showcases jewelry and art from local artisans. The spa offers five treatment rooms, including a couples treatment room. The menu offers a range of full body massages, HydraFacials, wraps, manicures, pedicures, waxing, and hair and makeup services. An additional spa highlight is the Side Porch, a beautiful space that groups particularly like to take advantage of with a make-up station, blow-dry bar, and sound system to help set the mood. Aside from group bookings, spa guests can still take advantage of the space by enjoying its complimentary tea, coffee, and fresh fruit bar.
The immaculately manicured Nicklaus Design golf course offers 18 challenging holes nestled into breathtaking natural surroundings. Tree-lined fairways, rolling topography and dramatic elevation changes create an oasis for players of all levels. With a mix of harrowing approaches and dizzying doglegs, the course features 7,011 yards of golf with a par 72. Guests can head to the fairways for leisure play, or through private lessons and half-day golf schools, which are available from a staff of PGA professionals.
Additionally the roster of daily entertainment and activities for guests will keep the entire family occupied throughout the day. Archery, private oyster bed tours where guests learn about farming and aquaculture on Cape Cod Bay and evening movies around the pool captivate every generation. Fitness classes that run the gamut from Beach Yoga and Pilates, to Body Bar Plus, to Spin, Zumba and Cardio Strength Interval make sure your vacation doesn’t get the best of you. Live music through out the resort at various venues keeps things loose and relaxing. It seems as though the Director of FUN (a real position) spends most of her day thinking of a bucket list that will make each guest’s vacation one to remember for their entire life.
Leon Bolivar, Director of Marketing confirms the universal commitment each employee has in making time spent at Ocean Edge a time to treasure. “We are in the business of making people happy by helping to create new memories.” Given the depth and breadth of offerings for guests, the culinary and beverage options for locals and visitors, the exquisite and expansive historic grounds, and the un-paralled beauty of the best the Cape has to offer, being in the business of making people happy sounds like a dream job.
