One Ocean Resort & Spa Partners with Stellers Gallery

FEATURING FLORIDA ART INSTALLATIONS IN RESORT'S GALLERY SPACE

ATLANTIC BEACH, FL. March 20, 2017 – Northeast Florida’s chic beachfront boutique resort, One Ocean Resort & Spa, proudly announces a partnership with Stellers Gallery, a full service, northeast Florida, fine arts gallery featuring Florida-based artists. As part of the collaboration, Stellers Gallery will install artwork within the gallery space at One Ocean Resort & Spa. The first artist featured under the new gallery relationship is John Schuyler, a mixed media fine art painter.

“We are thrilled to partner with Stellers Gallery,” says David Mariotti, general manager at One Ocean Resort & Spa. “Through their expert connections with the art community, Stellers has chosen the perfect artist for our first Gallery installation. John Schuyler’s pieces beautifully reflect the artful and inspired setting at One Ocean. I am very excited to see this partnership come to fruition.”

With a nearby gallery located in Ponte Vedra Beach, Stellers Gallery has promoted the importance of local art for over 20 years. Currently one of the longest operating, privately owned galleries in northeast Florida, Stellers has more than 80 different artists on display and while creating an artistic presence in almost every private club, high-profile commercial business and sophisticated residence within the Jacksonville area. The gallery houses a variety of styles ranging from conservative and traditional, to expressionist, abstract and whimsical.

John Schuyler has been experimenting with various paint techniques since the 1990s and brings a unique vision to The Gallery at One Ocean with his exhibit, Where the earth meets the sky. As a mixed media fine art painter, Schuyler works in a unique process of layering, pouring, scraping, and scratching into the surface, leaving traces of earlier information and a buildup as well as an overlap of successive stages. His unconventional approach causes viewers to continually adjust their attention in order to consider the various perceptual possibilities within the subject. The rough textures in contrast with the simplistic and balanced nature of his pieces often leave viewers with a powerful impression.

One Ocean Resort & Spa promotes its Gallery as a representation on the confluence of art, luxury and nature. Beyond The Gallery and throughout the resort, guests find an array of artistic creations that help create a pure, organic ambiance that awakens and inspires. From dramatic sculptures to serene wall installations, inspiration is everywhere at One Ocean Resort & Spa. The elegant and creative spirit of the resort is captured through a compelling composition of artists, each offering a unique vision inspired by the beachfront setting.

Coming Up In The April Online Hotel Business Review




Feature Focus
Guest Service: The Personalized Experience
In the not-too-distant future, when guests arrive at a hotel, they will check themselves in using a kiosk in the lobby, by- passing a stop at the front desk. When they call room service to order food, it will be from a hotel mobile tablet, practically eliminating any contact with friendly service people. Though these inevitable developments will likely result in delivered to their door by a robot. When they visit a restaurant, their orders will be placed and the bill will be paid some staff reduction, there is a silver lining – all the remaining hotel staff can be laser-focused on providing guests with the best possible service available. And for most guests, that means being the beneficiary of a personalized experience from the hotel. According to a recent Yahoo survey, 78 percent of hotel guests expressed a desire for some kind of personalization. They are seeking services that not only make them feel welcomed, but valued, and cause them to feel good about themselves. Hotels must strive to establish an emotional bond with their guests, the kind of bond that creates guest loyalty and brings them back time and again. But providing personalized service is more than knowing your guests by name. It’s leaving a bottle of wine in the room of a couple celebrating their anniversary, or knowing which guest enjoys having a fresh cup of coffee brought to their room as part of a wake-up call. It’s the small, thoughtful, personal gestures that matter most and produce the greatest effect. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some leading hotels are doing to cultivate and manage guest satisfaction in their operations.
