Overview

He’s not the only person to find inspiration amongst the lush, tropical vegetation and clear lagoons; GoldenEye was also the muse for Sting, who crafted ‘Every Breath You Take’, whilst relaxing here. Today, this remarkable resort is owned by Chris Blackwell, the Jamaican born founder of Island Records and he ensures that its legacy of arts, music, and culture lives on. GoldenEye is not a usual hotel in the traditional sense of the word, but a stunning collection of villas, cottages, and beach huts each sitting within their own private space, surrounded by tropical gardens, private beaches, and a crystal-clear lagoon. Wide verandas, sound systems wafting softly playing music from Island Records artists, clawfoot baths, outdoor showers, and soft hand dyed batik robes encourage you to relax, slow down, and find your own tropical rhythm. Divine meals showcase fabulous Jamaican authenticity with the freshest of fish, Jerk BBQ, and tasty local dishes and in-room dining is also available. Let the natural beauty of GoldenEye seduce you, like it has done to visitors so many times before. With its beautiful beaches, tangle of native rainforest and winding lagoon, it’s not hard to see why this beautiful spot is so highly regarded.
