Full accommodation information

A peaceful, Jamaican oasis that encourages creativity and authenticity, GoldenEye offers a luxury island escape quite unlike any other.

With a rich artistic history, GoldenEye’s stunning 52-acre site was once home to world-renowned author Ian Fleming, and is the birthplace of his iconic character James Bond. Having welcomed a diverse array of influencers, writers, visionaries and artists through its doors over the years, the resort is now owned by Island Records’ founder, Chris Blackwell, maintaining GoldenEye’s unique and creative nature.

Goldeneye in Jamaica embraces its enviable location on Jamaica’s pretty Oracabessa Bay, GoldenEye offers a range of water-based activities from the soft sands of its private beach. Spot tropical fish on a glass-bottom boat tour, scuba dive over crystalline reefs, or explore nearby coves on a paddle board or kayak. Meanwhile, three stunning pools ensure that you will always have somewhere to cool off from the island sunshine.

The world-class FieldSpa is nestled in a tranquil cottage overlooking the resort’s lagoon, offering a menu of rejuvenating therapies and treatments, based on traditional Jamaican recipes and the healing power of plants. Continue your journey of wellness with yoga overlooking the Caribbean Sea.

As for dining, GoldenEye features three delightful eateries, each serving up delicious dishes made with the freshest and finest ingredients, much of which is local! Unwind with an exotic rum cocktail or barbecued fish as you watch the breathtaking island sunset.

GoldenEye is on a mission to safeguard the vibrant coral reefs that grace their shores. To that end, they offer reef-safe sunscreen, a small but significant step to protect these underwater wonders right from their property.

But their commitment to the environment extends beyond the waves. GoldenEye stands as a protector of sea turtles, diligently guarding nests from poachers, ensuring these ancient mariners continue to grace their shores for generations to come.

Their dedication to preserving not just nature but also the local community shines brightly. They support the Oracabessa fish sanctuary, fostering sustainable livelihoods for local residents.
