About the hotel
GoldenEye, a lush, 53-acre property was once the Jamaican retreat of world-renowned author Ian Fleming, where he penned all 14 James Bond novels. Complete with private beaches, secret coves, and a seawater lagoon, GoldenEye boasts a casual, friendly atmosphere. Built into the natural landscape, you can kayak or swim through the lagoon to arrive at the spa. The FieldSpa shares an approach to living that enlivens with energy, happiness, and health. Dine amongst the treetops, or along Low Cay beach featuring Jamaican-style ackee and saltfish to spicy jerk chicken and real fine dining.

One Bedroom Ocean Front Villa
This one bedroom villa has a spacious feeling where the rooms flow together informally. Under a giant Banyan tree, the bedroom features a queen-size bed, a claw foot bath, and an exotic outdoor rainforest shower. The separate living room and kitchen area open onto a private cut-stone patio with picnic table for al fresco dining.
Three Bedroom Ocean Front Villa
Located on the hilltop bluff, this three-bedroom enclave offers sweeping views of the Caribbean Sea. Stone steps, descending from the lush, tropical garden lead to a private swimming patio with direct access to the lagoon.
One Bedroom Lagoon Hut
Cozy, charming, and nestled in it's own tropical garden, this was one of the first structures built at GoldenEye with views across the lagoon. Conveniently, it has its own outside kitchen.
The Fleming Villa is like an island unto itself, it is all about privacy. Your own beach and, of course, your own pool, gardens, and staff. Walk over to GoldenEye for a spa treatment, sunset cocktails at the Bizot Bar or dinner at the Gazebo Restaurant. Walk back to Fleming Villa and, again, you’re secluded. Removed from it all. Really, it’s the best of all worlds and the very best of GoldenEye.
Beach / Lagoon Villas
The Beach/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.
One Bedroom Lagoon Cottage
These 720sqft one bedroom lagoon cottages are located on the water with direct lagoon access from your private veranda. They feature a king size bed, en-suite bathroom, and outdoor shower.
Easy, breezy, playfully painted Beach Huts are the most recent addition to the GoldenEye property. Each free-standing hut has been designed to promote indoor, outdoor living. High ceilings, over-sized windows maximise cross-ventilation from ocean breezes, eliminating the need for air conditionings. Interiors are cool, comfortable and decorated in calm, neutral colours.
The menus at GoldenEye feature a bounty of local specialities.
On the western arm of Low Cay Beach, Bizot Bar is the spot for stylish low-key dining. Located just steps from the sea, Bizot Bar serves breakfast, and lunch that includes fresh salads, burgers, and pastas, as well as famously authentic and delicious Jamaican specialities. Chef Colin Hylton uses ingredients grown on owner Chris Blackwell’s 2,500-acre organic farm to create upscale Jamaican curries and fresh vegetable dishes to accompany jerk chicken and grilled lobster.
Built in an open-air, treehouse-style, the newly designed Gazebo serves up fine dishes with an international flavour. Overlooking both Low Cay Beach and The Lagoon, this is a great spot to enjoy cocktails while overlooking fiery Caribbean sunsets. Dishes range from grilled lobster tail to seasoned rack of lamb, complemented with an international wine list.
In Room Dining
For a delicious treat, try in room dining. Just decide what you want, and they'll make it happen from breakfast on the veranda or set a romantic dinner on the porch of your Beach Villa.
Private dining by candlelight on the far edge of the Peninsula? Torch-lit beach BBQ with all the Jamaican fixings? Use your imagination and they’ll keep it cooking.
