Goldeneye Jamaica

There’s a magnetic quality at Goldeneye Jamaica that has, for decades, attracted creatives of all stripes. Ian Fleming, who suffered from writer’s block, created the James Bond character while at GoldenEye—and wrote another Bond adventure during every winter. Sting wrote the hit, ‘Every Breath You Take’ and Bono wrote the theme song to the GoldenEye film while there. The artists, writers and musicians from around the world who first visited while Fleming was in residence kept coming when Island Record’s founder, Chris Blackwell, acquired the property during the 1970s. Soon, the original Fleming Villa, didn’t have enough rooms. So began the build. What followed: The Originals, Beach and Lagoon Villas, Lagoon Cottages and Beach Huts.
