“We could not be more honored than to have The Ocean Room join The Sanctuary hotel and spa among the proud ranks of Five-Star honorees,” says The Sanctuary General Manager Bill Lacey. “I want to recognize the chefs and the entire front-of-house for their pursuit of culinary excellence that has resulted in this recognition.
