Oracabessa Bay, St. Mary, Jamaica, W.I.
GoldenEye Resort has always been an exceptional place to stay. On Jamaica’s north coast, GoldenEye Luxury Resort overlooks the Caribbean Sea on Oracabessa Bay. GoldenEye has always been a home to many stars and is named Ian Fleming’s World War II missions, Operation GoldenEye. GoldenEye resort sits on a 52-acre property and is home to private beaches, tropical forests and a lagoon. There are 49 stand-alone Beach Huts, Lagoon Cottages and Beach and Lagoon Villas, as well as Fleming Villa, designed by Ian Fleming, himself.
Amenities, Services & Experiences
Few places manage to condense the sheer joy of island living as successfully as Jamaica’s favorite hotel. Hip, friendly, respectful. Lovely trees, gently sloping sands, and a bewitching turquoise sea, cocktails muddled with lime, pineapple, and rum.
Goldeneye, to be clear, is not an easy place to leave. The land – the former home of Ian Fleming, where he wrote each of the 14 James Bond thrillers that would cement his place in literary and cinematic history – sits next to the tiny town of Oracabessa, on the northern coast.
Whether you’re a fan of James Bond or luxury getaways, this exclusive address 20 minutes east of Ocho Rios holds special appeal. In 1946 James Bond creator Ian Fleming bought what was a donkey racecourse on a lagoon and built a villa that is now owned by Island Records magnate Chris Blackwell.
“My wife and I were desperate for a relaxing vacation, and we received it at the GoldenEye. The staff was fantastic. The property was beautiful. We loved the hut we stayed in with outdoor shower. I snorkeled everyday in clear beautiful waters. This place was an absolute dream. I cannot recommend it enough.” – Jason. Google Reviews.
“The best 6 days I’ve had walking this earth! The lagoon cottage is right off a postcard. Laurel, our driver, made our trip extra special with her great conversation and knowledge of Jamaica… She is a big reason we will be back to GoldenEye very soon!”- Tripadvisor.
