Welcome to Beach and Lagoon Villas at GoldenEye, luxurious 1-2 bedroom private cottage-style villas located in the glamorous and exclusive GoldenEye in Ocho Rios.

GoldenEye was Ian Fleming’s Jamaica retreat and where he wrote all 14 James Bond novels. Located on a stunning 52-acre site, GoldenEye is home to secret coves, breathtaking private beaches, tropical forests, and a seawater lagoon.

Beach and Lagoon Villas are in a world of their own in the Caribbean. Stroll across the suspension bridge to another world on a white sand beach next to translucent Caribbean water. At the GoldenEye, nine remarkable villas form a village on Low Cay Beach.

Wake up in at your dreamlike vacation location and stroll barefoot form your porch onto the sugary sand. Low Cay Beach is a 500-ft sandy crescent sheltered by a coral reef and is exclusively for GoldenEye guests. The original designs by architect Ann Hodges reintroduce the classic Caribbean cottage, completed with contemporary comforts. Wood-clad exteriors, jalousie shutters and exotic outdoor showers evoke romantic memories of a past era.

Every effort has been made to depict the beach in front of this property, but temporary changes may occur.

Area description

Located just steps from the sea and our fresh water swimming pool, Bizot Bar serves breakfast and lunch that includes fresh salads, yummy burgers and tasty pastas, as well as famously authentic and delicious Jamaican specialties.
The Bizot Bar is named for French counter-culture connoisseur, Jean-Francois Bizot (1944 - 2007). A journalist and music tastemaker, Bizot founded Radio Nova in Paris and introduced World Music to French audiences. At Bizot Bar, we introduce you to the sounds of Radio Nova, broadcast from France.

Dishes range from grilled lobster tail to seasoned rack of lamb, complemented with an international wine list.

So built into the natural landscape, guests can kayak or swim through the lagoon to arrive at the spa. In room treatments are also available. The fieldSpa shares an approach to living that enlivens with energy, happiness, and health.


The view from Firefly is simply the finest in the whole Caribbean. Undisputed. From the island’s aboriginal people, the Taino, to the notorious pirate Henry Morgan, it is considered sacred. In 1948, Noel Coward rediscovered what was then called “lookout,” renamed it Firefly and spent the next 20 years there entertaining the most glamorous personalities of the day. Coward is buried on the lawn. (20-minute drive along the coast)
