Jamaica's Goldeneye Debuts New Beach Cottages
Here's a little eye candy for your mid-week slump: a gallery of photos from inside one of the brand new Beach Cottages at Jamaica's Goldeneye, former home of Ian Fleming and preferred getaway of Jay-Z & Beyonce, Bono, and anyone else with a one-word name.
We were lucky enough to spend a few nights here earlier in the summer and loved the mix of high and low. High, being the beauty and top-of-the-line materials used in the decor, and low simply being the laidback vibe that lilts through the place like a warm Jamaican breeze or slice of reggae --which is, of course, available in abundance on your in-room Squeezebox music player.
The beach cottages, obviously, are located along Low Cay Beach, mere steps from the water and Bizot Bar, where you can watch the sunset over a glass of Blackwell Rum. They're the premium rooms here but we also love the idea of the Lagoon Suites, where you can dive straight off your porch into the cool, green waters of the natural lagoon.
It's currently low season at Goldeneye, with Lagoon Suites from $448 a night and Beach Cottages from $780 a night.
Full Disclosure: We stayed at Goldeneye while on assignment for a men's fashion magazine, but all opinions expressed here are our own.
