Description


If you enjoy living by the sea and outdoors, being soothed by natural beauty, GoldenEye is an ideal place for you. A collection of secluded one and two-bedroom cottages and villas have been built across fifty-two acres of tropical landscape surrounding the luxury private villa once owned and lived in by the Author, Ian Fleming. Today, GoldenEye is an award-winning hotel owned by Chris Blackwell, the Jamaican-raised founder of Island Records. Unsurprisingly, the atmosphere here is palpable, being firmly rooted in the arts, music and culture. If you can bear to leave your guest room – with its wide verandas perfect for open-air dining, irresistible outdoor showers and a personal sound system, stocked with Island Records-produced music – you’ll find a host of water sports, a spa and two delightful restaurants.

The main villa still retains many of the original furnishings, including Ian Fleming’s writing desk and can be hired out for a truly exclusive holiday.

There is such a relaxed, typically-Jamaican atmosphere at Goldeneye it’s not uncommon to find guests and staff playing backgammon and Hollywood rummy on the beach, however if you would prefer to do something a little less sedate, there are horse riding centres and golf courses just thirty minutes away.
