The source of inspiration for Ian Fleming; the incomparable beach, turquoise waters and serene luxury would have meant Bond himself was stirred, but not shaken.
Golden Eye, in Oracabessa Bay, is a secluded world of warm shallows lapping clean white sand, with lush trees and rocks tumbling down to water’s edge. Tucked discreetly away amidst the foliage is a selection of quietly luxurious one and two bedroom cottages and lagoon suites.
But it is the Fleming Villa which has the real licence to thrill. It has its own beach, gardens and staff. It also has a unique atmosphere, because it was here that many of the Bond novels were conceived and the Fleming Room is rich in mementos of the period. Photographs of the famous man line the walls and his books fill the shelves. But you don’t have to be a secret agent to appreciate the secluded beauty of this Jamaican hideaway.
