Assuming you have no objection to flying in private jets or riding in helicopters, we are pretty sure this week’s Fantasy Friday post will have you seriously contemplating cashing in your savings. Island Outpost Resorts we have learned, has partnered up with Magellan Jets to offer a package worthy of 007 himself, minus the flying bullets and explosions.
Forking out the big bucks will send you flying via private jet to Jamaica, where guests will stay at two different resorts over a five day stretch (although we are certain if you would like to stay longer the resorts would be happy to take your money).
The trip starts out at Strawberry Hill resort located up in the mountains at about 3,100 feet above sea level, which makes for some pretty impressive views of the island and a killer infinity pool. After two nights, a helicopter will show up to transfer guests to GoldenEye, the very resort built by James Bond author Ian Fleming.
Guests can pick what kind of accommodations they would like from a collection of suites, villas and cottages, but of course this is Fantasy Friday, so we are going to go all out and suggest the Mountain View Suite at Strawberry Hill ($495+ per night) and the Fleming Suite at GoldenEye ($5,500+ per night) in which the author’s desk still stands.
According to Magellan “Mid Size” jet pricing is at $5,300 per hour round trip and the package can actually be booked for a group of up to 10, which certainly evens out the air cost should you be able to wrangle up that many of your wealthiest friends at once.
Other perks on the menu include Jamaican cuisine aboard the flight to Kingston, “Bond-themed” gift baskets, all ground transport, dinner for two at Gazebo at GoldenEye, and two massages at Strawberry Hill.
