“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. ”
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.
