Your Guide to the Perfect Summer Morning at Ocean Casino Resort

When summer begins at Ocean Casino Resort, it brings relaxing afternoons at the Poseidon, Eclipse and Boardwalk pools, and lazy, sun-filled beach days. Summertime fun is abundant at this Atlantic City Beachfront destination, but all great days start off with the perfect morning. While the A.M. possibilities at Ocean are endless, here is a routine that is sure not to disappoint and will get you rising and shining in no time.

Wake up and work out.

Sunrise Yoga Flow (hotel guests only)

Breath in the ocean air, bask in the warm summer sunshine and calm the mind & body with Ocean’s Sunrise Yoga Flow. Each class is an hour long and takes place outdoors on the brow (outside on MR level) Thursday through Sunday at 7 a.m., weather permitting. These complimentary classes are beginner-level; however, the instructor can accommodate intermediate-level classes upon request.

Fitness Center (hotel guests only)

If yoga is not quite your cup of tea, then Ocean’s expansive Fitness Center is open and available to hotel guests from 6:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.!

Sip on a cup of coffee…or two.

Stayed up later than anticipated the new 1927 Lounge & Speakeasy or casino? We recommend a visit to The Grind, or Ocean’s newly expanded Lobby Brew, each serving the freshest coffee and morning treats to get you caffeinated and energized for the day.

Eat well, champagne often.

Sunday Brunch at Amada

If you find yourself at Ocean on a Sunday morning, then Amada is the place to be. For $49 a person ($24.50 for children under 10 years old), ease into the day with unmatched ocean views and soak the rich flavors of Chef Garces’ culinary Spanish cuisine with authentic Mediterranean details. This one-of-a-kind brunch experience runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and requires reservations.

Breakfast or Brunch at Harpers
Harper’s is the brunch destination of Atlantic City. This bistro sits in a comfortable location on Ocean Casino Resort’s lobby level, with views of the skyline and blooming summer gardens. Now open daily from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. for the summer, guests can enjoy breakfast options such as lobster frittata, bacon-pecan sticky bun, liege style waffles and French press coffee, and lunch offerings like baby arugula salad or grilled pork belly burger. Additional options are available.

Exhale worry, inhale peace.

Exhale Spa + Bathhouse (ages 21+)

At Exhale Spa + Bathhouse, transformation begins from the inside out. Begin your summer morning at this world renowned 40,000 square foot spa, and wind down with therapeutic, results-oriented body and skin care services designed to promote ultimate inner and outer wellbeing. All services come with a day pass to Atlantic City’s only co-ed bathhouse, ideal for relaxation, detoxifications, and socialization. Breathe in the air of our Himalayan Salt Grotto, sink into our heated pool, purify in steam rooms, saunas, hot tubs and lounge with a refreshing beverage. Day passes are also available at $55 for resort guests, and $70 for non-resort guests. Book your service here or call 609-783-8700.

Eclipse Pool (hotel guests only)

Did you know, if you are a non-resort guest enjoying an Exhale Spa + Bathhouse day pass, you also receive access to the Eclipse Pool? Start your summer morning off taking a swim in Ocean’s family-friendly indoor/outdoor pool, and take in views overlooking the Atlantic Ocean from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Go for a summer morning stroll.

Sometimes, the best way to wake up is a walk-through nature. Head down to the beach for an early morning stroll and take in the beauty of the Atlantic Ocean. Who knows, you may even see a family of dolphins on an early morning coastal swim!

For a less sandy option and breathtaking views of the ocean from the 11th floor, we suggest a stroll alongside blooming flowers and local foliage at The Skygarden, located on Ocean’s lobby level! There is plenty of seating available, so if you packed a few good books for your Atlantic City getaway, this is the spot to cozy up and read them.
