GoldenEye is located in Oracabessa Bay, in the parish of St. Mary, 20 minutes outside of Ocho Rios on the north coast of Jamaica. It consists of 11 brand new bright and airy beach and lagoon cottages and six new lagoon suites. Experience tons of fun new activities and try tasty local dishes at two new restaurants.
The four-acre Lagoon, the centerpiece of GoldenEye, was created when Oracabessa was a banana port. Today it forms a peaceful ring around Santa Maria Island and extends under the GoldenEye bridge and into the Bay. GoldenEye’s main beach, Low Cay, is 500 feet of smooth sand that’s ideal for sunning, relaxing and swimming. Our fun, fitness-focused experiences include lagoon rafting, stand-up paddleboarding and core balance and strength instruction. Guests can also mountain bike to Firefly, play tennis, or simply jog along the coast. Other uniquely inspirational and experiential activities are available, including sunset yoga, and coral restoration.
Our menus feature a bounty of local specialties, from Jamaican-style ackee and saltfish to spicy jerk chicken with rice and peas as well as glorious seasonal fruits and sumptuous desserts.
To spend time in our FieldSpa is to exist in a more mindful and peaceful tempo, a cadence that allows us to breathe more deeply, live more slowly and more fully when returning to work and home. With its lagoon's edge cottage and open-to-the air treatment rooms, our spa without walls is a sanctuary for massage, salt scrubs, skin brightening facials, herbal wraps, and energy work. So built into the natural landscape, guests can kayak or swim through the lagoon to arrive at the spa. In room treatments are also available. The fieldSpa shares an approach to living that enlivens with energy, happiness, and health.

Each Lagoon Suite has its own private dock extending four feet over the lagoon and a brightly colored kayak that’s tied up and waiting for you. Each suite is built into lush natural landscape with direct access to the lagoon from your veranda. All are just steps away from Low Cay Beach.
One-bedroom Beach and Lagoon Cottages
Five One-bedroom Beach Cottages open directly onto Low Cay Beach. The One-bedroom Lagoon Cottage sits directly on GoldenEye’s four-acre signature lagoon. All feature a large porch, wooden louvred windows and wide double doors. These private accommodations invite the kind of indoor/outdoor living GoldenEye is famous for.
Two-bedroom Beach and Lagoon Cottages
Four of the Two-bedroom cottages are located directly on Low Cay Beach and one is located on the lagoon. With their large porches (upstairs and downstairs), louvred windows and double doors, these private accommodations are constructed for year-round indoor/outdoor living.
Fleming Villa is like an island unto itself. Looking for privacy? Fleming Villa (along with its satellite cottages, Pool House and Sweet Spot) is all about privacy. Your own beach—and, of course, your own pool, gardens, and staff. Walk over to GoldenEye for a spa treatment, for sunset cocktails at the Bizot Bar, for dinner at the Gazebo. Walk back to Fleming Villa and, again, you’re secluded. Removed from it all. Really, it’s the best of all worlds—and, the very best of ours. Of course, there’s the history. Fleming, and his character, Bond. James Bond. If these walls could talk they’d tell tales of artists and writers, spies and seducers. The romantic atmosphere is palpable. The vibe, utterly relaxing, though you may feel the inspiration that lives here, still.
