Prepare for a seductively good time in this former spy hideout and beach resort with a tantalizing lagoon, fresh cuisine and private beach.
Experience adventure, inspiration and a seductively good time at the place James Bond started—author Ian Fleming created his character during a stay here. This dreamy beach hotel has two powdery-sand beaches with nearby reefs for exploring with your snorkel set, kayak or glass-bottom boat provided by the resort. When not swimming in the ocean, the Lagoon draws you in with a crystal-clear, warm water or two fresh-water swimming pools that always give a tranquil setting next to resort bars. The on-site FieldSpa exists purely for your relaxation with herbal wraps, meditation and of course, calming massages.
As far as accommodations go, we could go on for days with the special amenities but outdoor rain showers, claw foot tubs, oversized furniture, open-air feels and Blackwell Rum get the point across. The stylish abodes come in beachfront villas and huts, lagoon cottages and even the original houses of the owners like Ian Fleming and Chris Blackwell. Dining options are similarly impressive—choose between the tree-house restaurant Gazebo, in-room dining or an outdoor mean under the stars after your curated cocktails at one of the hotel bars. If you’re feeling extra fancy during your stay, you can plant a tree on the property by donating $1,000 to the Oracabessa Foundation…Kate Moss and Johnny Depp did it.
Book a day of deep sea fishing, if you want to wrestle with a spearfish, sailfish and more on a 33 to 38-foot power boat with Red Stripe beers aboard. Or arrange a visit to the famous FireFly house designed by Noël Coward for drinks and the best sunset view in Jamaica—it’s just 15 minutes away.
The natural resources of Jamaica give you practically unlimited options for spending your days active and amazed. Whether it be a thrilling bicycle ride through the Blue Mountains, a hike to Dunn’s River Falls or a visit to the breathtaking Irie Blue Hole, it’s sure to almost measure up to your movie-worthy stay at GoldenEye.
