GoldenEye in Oracabessa, Jamaica

Nestled between emerald forests, golden sands, and the crystal-blue waters of the Caribbean, immerse yourself in complete serenity as you discover a beautiful secluded world with a name that says it all: GoldenEye. Tucked into beautiful Oracabessa Bay on the northern shores of Jamaica, this stunning resort evolved from James Bond creator Ian Fleming's private villa estate. With 1-2 bedroom villas, enchanting lagoon cottages, and even Mr. Fleming's private villa, relax in paradise as you sink into the lap of luxury. With modern, sleek styles, each villa is spacious and inviting, with high ceilings, sunlight streaming through wooden jalousie picture windows, and the cool ocean breeze flowing throughout. Custom-made king-sized beds are as plush as can be, while expansive lounges provide the perfect spot for an afternoon nap. Classic claw-foot tubs add an air of Bondian-grandeur, while private outdoor showers entice with a similar sense of daring. Step out onto your private deck, music drifting from your fabulous sound system, and sip a martini (shaken, not stirred) or your own drink of choice, as you gaze out over the beauty of Jamaica and the Caribbean. Enjoy complete luxury and style, adventure and relaxation, and live every day to the fullest with your stay at GoldenEye.

Wake to the gentle sounds of the surf rolling ashore, the sun warming the waters, and stroll down to lagoon's edge to dive right in. Spend the morning paddle-boarding or kayaking around the lagoon, or delight in a scenic jet ski safari along Jamaica's north shore. Venture out on a morning fishing trip with the local fishermen, and enjoy your work later that day as the resort's chef prepares your fresh catch exactly how you like it. Spend the afternoon at sea with a Sans Souci scuba diving excursion or a deep sea sport fishing trip, or be a landlubber and play a beautiful round of golf at Sandals Ocho Rios Golf & Country Club or Runaway Bay. Delve inland to discover the lush, vibrant rainforests of Jamaica, and delight in a hiking adventure through Cranbrook Flower Farm and Botanical Garden or the misty jungle trails of Mystic Mountain. Ride the rapids in an inner tube down White River, in breathtaking White River Valley, and make your way back to the resort to join in a sunset yoga session that will leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Watch the sun set with fiery brilliance behind the Caribbean that evening, then sit down at the tree-house styled Gazebo and dine on fabulous gourmet cuisine, peruse an extensive international wine list, and gaze out over a view that can melt hearts like James Bond himself. In beautiful Oracabessa Bay, let the warm ambiance of Jamaica fill you with serenity as the luxury of GoldenEye sweeps you off your feet, and gaze out into the sunset as you dream of your next fabulous day in paradise.

TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I post this review with a heavy heart - Selfishly I want to keep Goldeneye to myself and not share it with anyone else!!! Simply put - Goldeneye is the best resort destination that we have ever been to (and we have been to a lot!), and quite possibly one of the the best places in the world! Luckily it's not easy to get to. The drive from Montego bay is long - but our awesome driver Clayton (who is also a senior staff member and awesome human being) made it as painless as possible (cold beer, rum, and a stop for lunch at the legendary Scotchies for Jerk chicken on the way). We stayed in a lagoon villa, super cool & fun outside shower, which almost spoiled the clawfoot bathtub experience for us. Breathtakingly beautiful lagoon, our own kayak to paddle around in (to the spa across from us - MUST DO)/Button beach/general fun/exploring). The lagoon is so different from the beautiful beaches that it's almost a separate vacation. Read an earlier review about the rocky/coral sea floor as you go further away from shore - and yes that is true, but a small inconvenience to have the natural beauty and authenticity of this place. If you want a perfect beach I'd suggest going to thailand, and leave Goldeneye for us ;o) Bizot bar is super sexy, trendy cool and still manages to feel authentic. Chris Blackwell is a visionary and maestro of ambience - we actually got to meet him and spend some time together as he was on property at the time...still reeling from his humble intelligence and amazing charm! This is our 5th time to the island, and my wife was reluctant to go back as it is a big world and there's lots more to see. Jamaica is a draw for me particularly for the proximity, food, rum and music. This was the best surprise to find nirvana so close to home - we live in NYC. Ther Blackwell influence totally blows this up to the nth degree! The welcome drink - the goldeneye is sensational, and we had a lot of them from that point on. Food at all of the restaurants was surprising good - The patties & curried goat at Bizot was better and more nuanced than anyplace that I can remember, and I seek this stuff out! The main formal dining is Gazebo - very good, and probably the most high end place you will find on that side of the island. They do manage to pull it off in a relaxed island way, which was pretty impressive. Certainly helped that CB himself was holding court and chatting up the diners! I had Jerk rack of lamb one night, and had a special request of jerk lobster another - not cheap, but both remarkable and well worth the expense. Kayaking, snorkeling around the offshore reef and generally exploring the sprawling property kept us pretty busy for a few days. Never felt crowded, but admittedly we were off season.We went to the Blue Hole, which is a series of waterfalls and pools in the mountains - amazing and unspoiled, compared to the Dunns river falls, which is best kept for the cruise ship crowd which does dominate tourism in the area. That being said - Goldeneye is completely the opposite of a touristy place. The main entrance doesn't even have a name plate and is set back from the road- impossible to find unless you know it. I almost expected to see mick jagger & Keith Richards drinking at the bar (which I understand is not a historically unusual event!). Visited Noel Cowards house in the mountains - Firefly. Really interesting and visually worth the journey. Blackwall has the mandate to expand/develop it, and it will probably be amazing at some point. personally the draw of the beach/lagoon is too strong to want to be in the mountains, but it has its merits. We had 5 days there, which is about 3 days too short.The place made us feel like rockstars on our own private island! I honestly can't wait to go back - so we hope nobody reads these reviews, and we get availability !

It really is paradise, just more Jimmy Choo style than barefoot. Wonderful rooms, well designed and the lagoon huts are fabulous. Service is slow at the bar, but it is Jamaica. Cocktails fabulous and the weekly buffet amazing!! Very glad I've been just not sure I'd go back....

This place is really wonderful in most ways possible , the service was good especially w the help of Sherona and Fiona at the front desk very lovely to deal with and they helped to arrange a private dinner along w a birthday cake surprise for my husbands 40th, we also did some off site things that they did a great job arranging including lunch and a driver! all and all the staff was friendly and efficient NOTE we are on island time so things come in slower speeds but with fair timelines :) our room was a lagoon cottage and was beyond beautiful the outdoor Varanda looking out on to the swimmable lagoon with private paddle board and canoes was amazing the outdoor shower and footed tub were memorable features and the bedding amazing too however if you are a light sleeper request one located closer to the main office further away from the last beach as the locals in town celebrate life till the wee hours nonetheless the property was great the food was good too despite other reviews I read before coming the drinks were fab and the property's design was chic while keeping this organic theme using natural materials and keeping the grounds impeccable the planted fruit trees by past visitors is such a unique touch and the field spa was one of the best spas I've visited in a long while the product service hospitality and talent in the spa is impressive Karine was a great therapist I enjoyed both of my treatments I can't wait to go back

This hotel is beyond expectations! The vibes, the atmosphere and especially the staff makes all so special and unique. This surrounding of calm and laid-back sophisticated is exactly what I was looking for! The fresh food for the farm, the beaches, the rooms on the lagoon where absolutely delightful and perfect! Chris Blackwell had a vision many years ago and he was able to built and maintain this secret gem , one of the best hotel in the world! The way every single person treat you is over the top! Shelly Ann at Bizot was friendly , kind and made sure, we where happy during our stay. As well as Alex Masucci, one of a kind person, someone to tell stories likes no one else can, who keep us entertained, made us laugh to tears every days and took us out to eat in town! I believe we found a friend that will be in our heart forever.... Thank you Alex ! Specials thank's to Jenny Woods, Riccardo,Romane,Talca and the charming Stuart Jones who without all of them it wouldn't be the same at Goldeneye ! YOU GUYS ROCK and we will come back very soon, One love, Nadine and Olivia

Spent last week in Jamaica at Goldeneye resort, WOW. The nature, the people, the rhythms of the gorgeous island, the history of James Bond/Ian Fleming, the food, the snorkeling, kayaking, FieldSpa, the sunsets. We stayed in Lagoon Cottage 9, it felt completely private, even with cottages on either side. Waking up to the clear turquoise water every morning, going for a swim or taking kayak out, reading on the awesome covered Breakfast at Goldeneye is included and was fantastic. Enormous fruit plates, delicious fresh cooked entrees...everything we had was delicious. Plus, if you love coffee you'll enjoy your own French press. Cucumber Bloody Mary isn't included, but I highly recommend. Lunch and dinner was very good. I'm vegetarian/pescatarian and they tweaked a couple items and made them without meat, thank you. All the food I had, especially seafood was fabulous. Only thing was it wasn't always clear what dinner options would be, or where. It was very slow while we were there, which was a plus, but not everything was open all the time. Understandable. The vegetables and fresh fruit here are all amazing! Bizot Bar, shout out to Captain Kirk...your crafted cocktails were fabulous. Wish I could have a Black Passion in hand now. He also custom crafted several drinks for us based on our likes, delicious! We enjoyed all our visits and banter at Bizot with Captain. One night Mr. Blackwell came by and chatted with us briefly, and sent over Blackwell rum shots. The rum is super good, we ordered multiple bottles after we finished the complimentary one in the room. Don't miss Snorkeler's Cove!! Grab snorkeling gear and go out, I was in awe of all the coral formations and fish that were literally right there next to resort. oh SO worth it. I won't say too much to spoil it, but the setting is absolutely heavenly. And the therapists, I was calling them the magic hands team. I had a sports massage, and I felt like I was in a trance at was magical. ...oh I miss you Goldeneye!!! Chris Blackwell....well done sir! Everyone at the Goldeneye family, thank you for your warm embrace!! Clayton, Captain Kirk, Romaine, the Life Guards, everyone at Button Beach, all the fabulous waiters and waitresses who were so attentive, the grounds crew, our fantastic smiling softly singing cottage cleaner, turn down service...everyone, thank you for making our stay so fabulous!!! Extra love to Laurel Blair for her spirited fabulous welcome, for going out of her way for us...grabbing us beers on way to the resort, pulling over for Mikes bathroom breaks (ha! too many beers!!), for her stories and insights, and for her help with my attempts at Jamaican food! Ive made a new friend and I hope to see you again, sooner than later. One Love!
