Rooms and Villas
Located on Low Cay Beach and GoldenEye’s four-acre signature lagoon, these private accommodations invite the kind of indoor/outdoor living GoldenEye is famous for. With large porches, louvred windows and double doors, each cottage is built into a lush natural landscape with direct access to the beach and lagoon.
GoldenEye’s main beach, Low Cay, is 500 feet of smooth sand that’s ideal for sunning, relaxing and swimming. 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.
The Gazebo is the sexy, open-air spot to enjoy cocktails while watching fiery Caribbean sunsets, and Bizot Bar is the spot for stylish low key dining. 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.
Fleming created James Bond at GoldenEye, and wrote many of his fourteen James Bond novels on the property. A number of the Bond movies, including Dr. No and Live and Let Die, were also filmed near the estate. The estate’s name is also the title of the seventeenth James Bond film, and the first to star Pierce Brosnan as James Bond. GoldenEye is located in the Oracabessa Bay Fish Sanctuary, which was established in 2011 to protect Oracabessa’s marine ecosystem, and is adjacent to James Bond Beach, home of international concerts and festivals.
