Tales from our travels
Swing down from your tree-top perch and explore Jamaican beach life at the tranquil Goldeneye Hotel & Resort. This idyllic cluster of whitewashed cottages and suites is indeed named after the Brosnan Bond vehicle, but this is no gimmick: Ian Fleming penned all 14 of his James Bond novels in his villa, now the hotel’s centrepiece. The particularly private Lagoon Suite 8 – with a sumptuous king-size bed, balcony that juts out over the lagoon and secluded garden with private outdoor shower – seems made for honeymooners, and we'll warn you now that you may never want to leave. But, your Mr & Mrs Smith planner could help to arrange a day spent on horseback galloping through the waves at nearby Chukka Cove, or a trip with local fishermen to haul in the day’s catch (which hotel chefs will cook for you). Or simply stay put and stage your own action-adventure in the resort’s watersports area. Later, reward your physical stunts at the swim-up hillside spa (where you can book a full day of treatments) and cue the romantic scenes in the treetop restaurant. To quote the resort’s namesake film…Enjoy it while it lasts.
Start at the top, literally: the sky-skimming Kanopi House. Set deep in the rainforest and curtained in tropical greenery, this group of eco-chic tree houses boasts hand-carved four-poster beds, outdoor showers and wraparound verandahs,. And the hotel’s philosophy is equally green – all the wood is sustainable, and local craftsmen and artists contributed to the design. You may never leave your jungle lovenest but, if you do, your Mr & Mrs Smith concierge has loads of suggestions for exploring the natural surroundings. Set off on a dragon-hunting excursion to the bottomless Blue Lagoon, which local legend says is home to a mythical winged critter. Perhaps a lazy float down the Rio Grande, with a boatman steering your passage as you relax back in your two-person settee, is more your speed. Whatever you decide, you’ll be sure to create memorable experiences that will last a lifetime.
