Dear susannahcrowley: We thank you so much for your wonderful review! Own or manage this property?

The vibe, utterly relaxing, though you may feel the inspiration that lives here, still. The stunning 52-acre property is home to secret coves, breathtaking private beaches, tropical forests and a singular lagoon.

It's also one of the island's most historic, as the former home of Ian Fleming, and the hideaway at which the author scribed all 14 of his James Bond novels. A former travel columnist for The New York Times Syndicate, Smart Money, Ski, USA Today, and USA Weekend, I’m the editor of Everett Potter’s Travel Report and lecture as an expert for National Geographic Expeditions. We are also hoping you will come back in the future, and to be able to see The Fleming Villa! Ideal for a couple looking to experience the sexy beach vibes together, each hut is furnished with a king-sized bed—most beds are positioned to look out onto the private veranda—and offers an immersive open air interior wet room (with double rain shower heads).

The food wasn’t unhealthy at all, but it was so good and there was so much of it, it was hard to restrain yourself! The ocean is clean and you can kayak around the lagoon, swim, snorkel, and yoga. Bizot Bar - On the western arm of Low Cay Beach, Bizot Bar is the spot for stylish low key dining, serving breakfast and lunch that includes fresh salads, yummy burgers and tasty pastas, as well as famously authentic and delicious Jamaican specialties. On our second night, I called the front desk about ongoing movement/banging from the construction area after midnight. Named after one of Ian Fleming’s World War II missions, Operation GoldenEye, this Island Outpost property is owned by Chris Blackwell, Jamaica-raised founder of Island Records. We stayed in one of the Beach Huts. The staff and the service was excellent, nothing too much trouble with just the right amount of attentive service. It includes a guided snorkeling tour through the nearby reef and visit to Firefly, Noel Coward’s former hilltop home, where Fleming spent many afternoons, gin and bitters in hand. The Gazebo - Built in an aerie, tree house-style, the Gazebo (with lounge & restaurant) serves up dishes with an international flavor. Overlooking both Low Cay Beach and The Lagoon, Goldeneye’s website describes The Gazebo as ‘ the sexy, open-air spot to enjoy cocktails while watching fiery Caribbean sunsets ‘ – I couldn’t put it better myself! There’s a magnetic quality here that has, for decades, attracted creatives of all stripes. These timeless luxuries, paired with the thoughtful way we arrange your room (Blackwell Rum, hand-dyed batik robes, our selection of bath and beauty products made with local botanical ingredients), make your stay at GoldenEye extraordinary. The bed was superb (although after nightly "turndown," you can't watch TV in bed because of all the mosquito netting). There are 49 stand-alone Beach Huts, Lagoon Cottages and Beach and Lagoon Villas, as well as Fleming Villa, designed by Fleming, himself. You might think this design – so unique and so private – would explain this villa’s name. We certainly appreciate all your valuable feedback as it helps us to improve our service standards to you, our esteemed guests.

The bedroom is located on the upper level; the sandy-floor, open-air Dune Room is below.

Al fresco dining options: lunch or dinner under the famous almond trees planted by Ian Fleming, Fleming Beach BBQ and jerk. Each floor has the same layout—with king bed and its own bathroom—yet separate entrances on each floor convey the feeling of privacy. All One Bedroom Villas accommodate two adults and can sleep up to two children on the queen-sized daybed in living room. Very simple, very special this is our super laidback rum bar right on rustic Button Beach. It is a 90-minute drive from Montego Bay International Airport and an 8-minute drive from Ian Fleming Private Airport. Food in the Bizot bar was OK, breakfast being by far the best meal there. © 2020 Forbes Media LLC. Pingback: The Spa at Goldeneye, Jamaica | Got To Be Gourmet, Wow!
