“Exquisite 5* beach front hotel. Villas, cottages and stilted beach huts have mahogany beds, shutters and direct beach access. On site restaurants serve up traditional Jamaican styles with a twist, from their organic garden. Historic and luxurious with the emphasis on privacy. Honeymoon heaven!”

Hotel Overview

“This is truly a unique experience. A charming and wonderfully private stretch of beach on the north Jamaican coast. This was the spot that Ian Fleming chose to settle down and write his famed Bond books, and who could blame him. These days there are a few more souls on the beach and a lot more activities. The accommodations range from Fleming's own ten man villa complete with private chef, butlers, barmen, a private pool and a private beach, to the newest edition of rainbow painted stilted huts with a much more beach shack feel - and everything in between. The atmosphere somehow manages to marry chilled out beach vibe with glamorous cocktail party. ”

Licence to Chill

Imagine sipping vodka martinis while taking in a glorious Caribbean sunset at the very spot where the world's most famous super spy was born. The lavish Goldeneye resort in Jamaica is where James Bond creator Ian Fleming dreamt up his most famous creation.

Rustic beauty in Jamaica's GoldenEye

The travel writer Patrick Leigh Fermor described the house as one that “might serve as a model for new houses in the tropics. Great windows capture every breeze, to cool, even on the hottest day, the large white rooms. The windows that look toward the sea are glassless but equipped with outside shutters against the rain.”
