Asbury Ocean Club Hotel is the first true luxury five-star boutique hotel on the Jersey Shore. Picture magical ocean views, hand-picked, one-of-a-kind furnishings, and lush greenery, with sunlight streaming through floor-to-ceiling glass -- tranquil simplicity and natural beauty at every turn, and just 70 minutes from New York City. An elevated beach experience - literally - the entire 54-room hotel is elegantly set on the fourth floor of Asbury Ocean Club Residences. The effect is a beach hideaway in the sky; ingenious design means every room - with jaw-dropping 11-foot ceilings - has a view of water or dunes from its own terrace. With design by creative visionary Anda Andrei and operations by David Bowd of Salt Hotels, Asbury Ocean Club Hotel has a luxe, intimate residential feel -- warm, welcoming, and alive. Andrei sourced furniture and accessories all over the world, much as a homeowner would layer decor with personal touches that reflect their travels. Shelves bearing hundreds of pieces of colored glassware, and warm hand-painted fabrics, complement soaring ceilings and striking design objects. The Drawing Room -- an awe-inspiring “glass house” floating on a glistening reflection pool -- is the heart of the resort, and functions as a living room, open kitchen doubling as a bar and all-day retreat with a fireplace and baby grand piano. The pool deck serves as an extension of the property with deep sofas, sunken beds and floor pillows. The 65 x 30-foot pool overlooks the ocean and is outfitted with a full-service bar and grill, where flora is entangled throughout the pergola that hangs above. Guests enjoy a Mediterranean-inspired all-day menu served in the Drawing Room, at poolside, in guest rooms and at The Gallery. Unrivaled wellness amenities include a pampering spa, as well as a state-of-the-art Technogym-equipped gym and boxing studio designed by Jay Wright of the bespoke-fitness brand The Wright Fit. With a yoga room and sun-warmed meditation terrace, daily fitness classes, guided shoreline runs and aromatherapy are also available. A tablet in each room also allows streaming of classes from sources like Peloton.
