Ocean inspires everything from decor to cuisine at this picturesque resort

Dramatic ocean views are everywhere at the Ocean House Resort, so it’s not surprising that the sea inspires everything from the cuisine at the Forbes Five-Star COAST restaurant to the treatments at the OH! Spa. From its perch on a Watch Hill bluff overlooking the Atlantic and Little Narragansett Bay, the resort offers guests waterview rooms, suites and cottages, a private white-sand beach with equally private cabanas and exceptional waterfront dining. Launch your kayak, canoe or paddleboard from the resort property, go sailing at sunset aboard a yacht, learn how to fly-fish, indulge in raw-bar offerings on an outdoor terrace or just relax beachside with a cocktail and watch the waves lap against the shore.
