GoldenEye Resort, Jamaica.
Expansion continues on Island Outpost’s GoldenEye resort, in Jamaica.
Phase I of the development will be completed in the last quarter of 2010 and will include 11 beachfront cottages and a new beachfront restaurant, suitable for corporate business meetings.
On the design side, Jamaican architect Ann Hodges re-introduces the traditional Caribbean cottage, complete with wood-clad exteriors, jalousie shutters and outdoor showers.
Formally the home of Ian Fleming, who penned the James Bond series of books in the 1950s, GoldenEye estate was bought in 1977 by media mogul Chris Blackwell.
Since then, the property has been turned into a luxury destination resort. Now, Blackwell has added the new residences at the resort.
In addition to GoldenEye, Island Outpost manages other properties in the Caribbean, including The Caves, Geejam, Jakes and Strawberry Hill, in Jamaica.
