Located on 10 acres of rolling lawns with spectacular ocean views, OceanCliff offers a truly unique blend of breathtaking beauty, world-class cuisine and a professionally trained staff to ensure that every detail of your special day is meticulously attended to.





Twenty-five distinctly stylized guest rooms whisk you back to the 19th century with modern conveniences and stunning oceanfront views.

OceanCliff Resort occupies the site of the former Bronson Villa, owned by Arthur Bronson of New York. The villa was built in 1864 and was used as a summer residence by the Bronson’s for several seasons. The estate was then sold to Mr. Gaun M. Hutton a wealthy industrialist and his wife, when in 1892 the family began construction on the new estate. The estate remained a private summer home until 1954 when it was sold by the Hutton family and was later converted into an oceanfront retreat to be used to host lavish parties & society affairs.

For centuries, the waterfront estate has been an historic destination for weddings and social gatherings. Today, OceanCliff’s newly renovated grand ballroom accommodates from 70 to 225 guests for dinner and dancing, while a variety of smaller rooms allow for more intimate gatherings.



Set amidst the breathtaking splendor of the Narragansett Bay, OceanCliff has inspired generations of brides with some of the most enchanting landscapes in Newport, Rhode Island. Whether you prefer a romantic summer sunset celebration or a unique crystal winter white wedding, OceanCliff offers a variety of wedding and reception options.

The pristine manicured rolling lawns are complemented by a picturesque ceremony site perfect for the exchange of your vows. An adjoining outdoor patio for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres sets the mood while our magnificent Grand Ballroom captivates the panoramic views of the sparkling Atlantic waters accommodating up to 225 guests.

An OceanCliff wedding sets a new standard in romantic elegance. Offering the most unique and comprehensive wedding services our social catering managers combine the finest elements to ensure a perfect experience. Your personalized exclusive event will be a day you will always treasure, with memories to last a lifetime.

Our team of elite wedding coordinators will assist you in the process of planning and executing every aspect of your affair. Our Safari Restaurant or Upper Deck is the perfect setting for a casually elegant Rehearsal Dinner or Post Wedding Brunch. We offer a wide variety of culinary selections from elegant plated presentations to Lobster Boil Buffets.


Whether you join us for business or pleasure, enjoy a world of exceptional luxury in our twenty five elegantly appointed guestrooms and suites. All guestrooms and suites are traditionally furnished in shades of taupe and pale beige. Panoramic oceanfront views coupled with six hundred thread count imported Italian linens create a warm, relaxed, yet refined ambience.

Ocean Cliff went above and beyond as a reception venue for our November weekend. They truly exceeded our expectations in every way. They covered everything we wanted/needed and more! From our initial meeting to the after wedding brunch they were attentive and executed our wedding perfectly. The staff is extremely knowledgable and friendly and helped calm all of our wedding anxiety with their smiles and re-assurance. The guests at my wedding were blown away by the beauty of Ocean Cliff as well as the food and service. They accommodated all of our needs and truly made our wedding day feel so personalized and special.

OceanCliff was great. Prior to the wedding, Amy worked with us to craft a menu that would accommodate all the vegetarians and the picky eaters! She was so patient and answered all our questions! She also came up with a bunch of creative ideas to make our wedding day even better.

The day of, both Alyssa and Brianna were amazing. Brianna made sure that we ate and that everything went smoothly the day of the event. OceanCliff is gorgeous. Our wedding was during sunset and the pictures are just spectacular. I would highly recommend OceanCliff to anyone for their wedding!

OceanCliff will give you a dream wedding. The ambiance, the staff, and the food were fantastic. They had everything taken care of so there was nothing for me to worry about. I can honestly say that I had a stress-free wedding day. Our guests had a lovely time, and my husband and I felt like royalty. Everything was perfect!

My husband and I were thrilled with every aspect of our wedding involving the staff, service, food, and location of Ocean Cliff. Not being from the area, we had to rely on their list of preferred vendors, and were so pleased with all their recommendations. Throughout the whole planning process we were able to contact the sales and catering team with questions and receive prompt and useful information.

On our wedding day, everything truly appeared seamless. The staff kept us informed and kept our dinners hot while we visited with people at their tables! Our guests raved about Ocean Cliff as well.

We capped off the night with a sunset sail, as recommended by Galen, which offered us the opportunity to continue our celebration with a smaller group. It was absolutely magical.

The staff at Ocean Cliff are experts at hosting events like this, and we are so grateful to have chosen them for the location of our special and memorable wedding day.

I had my wedding at OceanCliff in November and couldn't have chosen a better venue. The entire staff was overly accommodating and made me feel calm, comfortable and special throughout the wedding weekend and all the preparations leading up to it.

We seriously can't say enough good things about oceancliff and their staff. From day one they were absolutely amazing to work with and the wedding was absolutely perfect. Every member of their team from the front desk to the event coordinator went above and beyond and our guests haven't stopped talking about what an amazing experience it was. Everyone was so sweet and accommodating to us and all of our guests (for the whole weekend too as we rented out all of the estate rooms). The food was amazing, the venue is gorgeous, the staff is incredible, the views are beautiful. Seriously book this venue, it's worth every single penny. We are so happy we had our wedding here, thank you to everyone at Oceancliff for a spectacular day, we can't thank you all enough!

I can't say enough about Ocean Cliff. They were absolutely amazing through the entire process. Galen and all of the catering and even staff that worked my wedding were unbelievably helpful and truly gave us the perfect day. We never felt rushed and the whole time felt completely taken care of and relaxed. I can't thank them enough for giving us such an amazing memory!
