GoldenEye overlooks the Caribbean Sea in the quiet village of Oracabessa Bay on Jamaica’s north coast. Originally the home of British naval officer, Ian Fleming, GoldenEye was named for a secret WWII mission. With Fleming as host, GoldenEye became the island’s hot spot – where Hollywood and high society mixed and mingled. During warm, Jamaica days Fleming escaped inside his cool villa. There, he dreamed up the superspy, James Bond, and penned all 14 novels from his desk that remains there still.
Following a thoughtful expansion in 2010, GoldenEye now encompasses Fleming’s original villa, the four villas built by Blackwell, plus nine new Beach Cottages, two Lagoon Cottages, six Lagoon Suites, two restaurants and the FieldSpa at GoldenEye. The stunning 52-acre property remains home to secret coves, breathtaking private beaches, tropical forests and a singular lagoon.]]>
