As you may know, GoldenEye is one of famous story in James Bonds series. Yes it is. The author of 007 Ian Flaming first to Jamaica during WWII. There are no other GoldenEye hotels; however, there are other Island Outposts. They include Strawberry Hill and The Caves, as well as private villas, all located in Jamaica.The hotel is model of barefoot luxurious escape, lying yourself in white sandy beaches, private lagoon. It's kids friendly, great for families and couples alike. Immensing incredible coral reef, secluded cottages and villa within 52 acres of private property, you can also enjoy paddle boarding, yoga and lagoon-side spa everyday.
Set in Oracabessa Bay, on the north coast of Jamaica, just 20 minutes drive to east of Ocho Rios and an 8-minute from Ian Fleming International Airport. At present, Ian Fleming has an asphalt surface measuring 5,000 feet and private and commercial aircraft can land easily. It’s a short flight on one of the charter planes that fly between Ian Fleming International, Montego Bay and Kingston. The drive from the capital city, Kingston to GoldenEye takes about two hours.
The Fleming Villa is like an island unto itself. Fleming Villa (along with its satellite cottages, Pool House and Sweet Spot) is all about privacy. Your own beach and pool, gardens, and staff. Walk over to GoldenEye for a spa treatment, sunset cocktails at the Bizot Bar or dinner at the Gazebo Restaurant.
The Beach and Lagoon villas open directly onto Low Cay Beach or sit directly on GoldenEye’s signature 4-acre lagoon. All feature custom designed king-size bed, overhead fans, a large porch, wooden louvred windows and wide double doors. These private accommodations invite the kind of indoor/outdo or living GoldenEye is famous for.
Each Lagoon Cottage has its own private dock extending four feet over the lagoon and a brightly colored kayak that’s tied up and waiting for you. Each cottage is built into lush natural landscape with direct access to the lagoon from your veranda. All are just steps away from Low Cay Beach.
GoldenEye’s main beach, Low Cay, is 500 feet of smooth sand that’s ideal for sunning, relaxing and swimming. You can also mountain bike to Firefly, play tennis, or simply jog along the coast. Other uniquely inspirational and experiential activities are available, including sunset yoga, and coral restoration.
On the western arm of Low Cay Beach, Bizot Bar is the spot for stylish low key dining. Located just steps from the sea and our fresh water swimming pool, Bizot Bar serves breakfast and lunch that includes fresh salads, yummy burgers and tasty pastas, as well as famously authentic and delicious Jamaican specialties.
Ian Fleming, creator of James Bond and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, first came to Jamaica during WWII and knew that when the war ended, it was there that he would live out his life, in the sun, by the sea. He had visited a property on the sea in the little village of Oracabessa Bay, which means “golden head.” By chance he had been working on a naval operation called GoldenEye. He bought the property, and when the war ended, built his dream house–a perfect place to heal the psychic wounds of war and escape the civility of civilization. And it was at GoldenEye that he dreamed up James Bond, 007, who turned out to be an escape for millions of readers.
One of the things that makes coming to GoldenEye such an unparalleled experience, is the community of Oracabessa. With a vibe and energy all its own we hope you'll take some time to visit the local shops and meet some of the local residents that give Oracabessa its unique character.
