In the Spotlight: GoldenEye Hotel & Resort, Jamaica

by Jane Reynolds on December 27, 2012

The beach is peaceful and has tons of on-site watersports.

The 21-room GoldenEye is hands down Jamaica’s hippest and most luxurious resort. 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. Today, the property, which reopened in 2010 after an extensive $50 million renovation, includes stunning cottages and villas overlooking a private beach and lagoon, as well as two happening restaurants, two pools, a tree house spa, and an extensive roster of on-site activities. The rates might cause some to flinch, but those who can afford it will find little cause for complaint. See more incredible photos after the jump or read our full review now ยป

The main pool looks out at the ocean.

The spa features sexy outdoor spaces.

The resort may be upscale, but it has a laid-back feel with casual Caribbean decor.

Rooms are bright, with high ceilings, large windows, and light furniture.

The Fleming Villa, named for the author, includes outdoor bathtubs and showers and its own private pool.
