There’s good news for Jamaicans and tourists planning to check into the luxurious GoldenEye resort in Oracabessa, St Mary.

The upside? You too can live like Bond did for a minimum four-night stay at GoldenEye.

The not-so-nice part is that it might set you back a meagre US$2,630. After all, the property is one of the Rock’s wonders, and a celeb-magnet.

Dubbed ‘The Ultimate James Bond Experience’, guests can unwind at the birthplace of the greatest spy series ever created – GoldenEye, where all 14 James Bond books were penned.

Plus, live like world-renowned author Ian Fleming did when he gained inspiration at the North Coast property in the 1950s.

The exclusive four-night experience for two at GoldenEye includes:

A private Guided Snorkelling Experience – where guests can explore the beautiful sea below the Ian Fleming Villa like the famed author did in his heyday.

A private trip to Firefly, celebrated playwright Noël Coward’s former estate. Tour the famous writer’s old home where he frequently entertained famous guests, including Fleming, and bask in the best view of the Caribbean, cocktail in hand.

A complimentary bottle of Bollinger La Grande Annee. Sip on the famous champagne featured in many Bond films that was first mentioned in Fleming’s 1956 novel Diamonds Are Forever.

Learn about Jamaica’s strong influence on the creation of Fleming’s spy series & the connection to GoldenEye.

A private tour of Ian Fleming Villa (if available); tour the place where it all began, where all James Bond books were written.

Full daily breakfast for two and complimentary cocktail on arrival.

Free high-speed Wi-Fi nightly turndown service

A flask of Blackwell Rum
