Jamaica with The Tropical Travelers
The Tropical Travelers have just returned from our latest tropical adventure and, as always, we have the best insider tips and information on the most luxurious hotels and resorts to help you plan your perfect tropical getaway. This trip took us to Jamaica, one of our favorite island destinations.
While there we experienced many locations and opulent hotels but one of our favorites was the Goldeneye Resort located on Oracabessa Bay, just 20 minutes from Ocho Rios. Yes, that is a James Bond reference. Goldeneye Resort is the former villa of Ian Fleming, author of the James Bond novels and where he wrote all 14 of the novels. Mr. Fleming’s villa is now one of many amazing cottages on the property that make up the small resort. The Tropical Travelers were given exclusive access to the incredible property and we couldn’t have been more impressed.
This laid back, exotic resort features private beaches, outdoor bars and restaurants with a decidedly chill vibe. Dine under Ian’s famous almond trees, the Fleming Beach BBQ or in the Fleming protected cave.
The vacation destination of choice of stars like Jay Z and Beyonce, Jimmy Fallon and Johnny Depp, the Fleming Villa and its satellite cottages are all about privacy. You will have your own private beach, your own pool and tropical garden. The Fleming Villa comes with its own staff including a butler, housekeeper and cook. What could be more luxurious than that?
But, as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. So here are a few of our photos from this one-of-a-kind resort. Contact us for more information or to plan your trip. Stay tuned for our newest travel guide with more stories, pictures and tips from our trip to the fascinating, romantic island of Jamaica.
We promise, once you visit, you will never want to leave.
