Ian Fleming was a former British intelligence officer and discovered Jamaica during a WWII mission in 1942. Four years later, he purchased 15 acres of under-developed tropical land and named it GoldenEye to pay homage to his naval operation that first brought him to the island. He resided there every winter for more than two decades and penned all 14 James Bond books onsite (sometimes typing more than 2,000 words a day). 70 years later, the James Bond name is recognizable across every corner of the globe.
Highlights of the package include a guided snorkeling tour through Fleming’s beloved reefs; and a tour of his Villa (based on availability) where his writing desk and typewriter remains. Outside, guests can stroll through the sunken garden where Fleming entertained the likes of British Prime Minister Sir Anthony Eden, playwright Noel Coward, and actress Katharine Hepburn.
The four-night package includes:
Package rates start at $3,700 for four nights in a one-bedroom Lagoon Cottage; available for stays now through October 31, 2023.
