Hotel Overview

Sense Of Place

GoldenEye is located well off the tourist trail in the quiet village of Oracabessa, in the north of Jamaica. Expect dramatic coastlines, a beautiful beach and a glistening lagoon - now that’s what we call luxury.

Rooms At GoldenEye

The standard rooms at GoldenEye comprise of one and two-bedroom beachfront cottages, all with full kitchens, Wi-Fi, flatscreen TVs and outdoor showers. If privacy is a must, then you could also choose one of the original villas, which are tucked away in the tropical gardens. The Royal Villa, with its large terrace on the lagoon and its own private swim-up deck, is a real hideaway.

For a family or large group, the Fleming Villa, which is made up of two cottages with three bedrooms, a private swimming pool and a private beach, is the ultimate James Bond experience.

Food & Drink

GoldenEye’s two excellent restaurants, The Gazebo and The Bizot Bar, provide a huge selection of delicious dishes - choose from exquisite international cuisine and local Jamaican style dishes like mac and cheese, ackee and saltfish, grilled corn and plenty of fresh fish. At dusk, head to the west-facing Gazebo and enjoy views of the fiery Caribbean sunsets.


There is a full range of therapies at the lagoon-side FieldSpa – book yourself a treatment and kayak across the lagoon to get there! By night, get in touch with your inner chakra and join a moonlit yoga session.

Activities At GoldenEye

Kayaking, jet skiing, windsurfing, sailing, fishing, diving, nature walks and tennis are just some of the activities on offer at GoldenEye. Daytime excursions range from horseback riding at Spanish Bridge, an idyllic spot on the White River, through to the must-do trip to Dunn's River waterfalls. Or if a slower pace is more your holiday vibe, relax with a game of backgammon under the palm trees.
