New James Bond Experience in Jamaica

GoldenEye Hotel & Resort

Magellan Jets and Island Outpost recently announced the launch of the "Ultimate Bond Adventure Experience" to Jamaica, the perfect pitch for Caribbean-bound fans of the James Bond movies and books.

The package will include private charter through Island Outposts’ preferred private jet charter company, Magellan Jets, to the exclusive Ian Fleming International Airport in Jamaica, and accommodations at GoldenEye Hotel & Resort and Strawberry Hill Hotel & Spa. A variety of perks will be included to ensure that this will be the ultimate Bond adventure experience.

Bond knows how to travel in style and this package delivers all of the necessary elements to live like 007. Private jets and helicopters were the preferred mode of transportation on all Bond films, so the Ultimate James Bond Adventure Experience will begin on a private jet, chartered by Magellan Jets. And for the most Bond-worthy end to the trip, guests will depart Jamaica aboard their Magellan Jet from Ian Fleming International Airport (IFIA), exclusively for private jets and scheduled charters, and less than three miles from GoldenEye.

GoldenEye has been the low key hub of cool since James Bond author Ian Fleming first built the lush estate in the town of Oracabessa on Jamaica’s North Coast in the 1950s. For decades, this hideaway played host to the glitterati and literati – writers, musicians and heads of state. Now owned by Jamaica-raised Chris Blackwell, the visionary entrepreneur and founder of Island Records, he has ensured that the relaxed allure of Ian Fleming’s GoldenEye endures.

The 52-acre estate now encompasses 20 units, including Beach Villas, two Lagoon Villas, six Lagoon Cottages and one Ocean Front Villa. Clients can also book Fleming’s own private three-bedroom villa – with two guest cottages – where his writing desk still stands just as he left it.

Located in the heart of one of the world’s most famous coffee-producing mountain ranges, Jamaica’s Blue Mountains, Strawberry Hill opened on October 18 following an extensive refurbishment of the property. Listed in the New York Times #1 bestselling book, "1,000 Places To See Before You Die," Strawberry Hill is 3,100 feet above sea level and features one of the most best views of the Blue Mountains in one direction as well as the city of Kingston in the other. 

The James Bond Experience includes a private jet charter through Magellan Jets to Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston; gourmet Jamaican-style catering on-board; a Bond-themed gift baskets on-board; ground transportation; a two-night stay at Strawberry Hill; a helicopter transfer to GoldenEye; a three-nights stay at GoldenEye; dinner for two at Gazebo at GoldenEye; two massages at Strawberry Hill; a private jet charter though Magellan Jets to Ian Fleming International Airport to the destination of their choosing and more.

Magellan Jets and Island Outpost can accommodate parties of up to 10 people for this package. Rates for the Fleming Villa start at $5,500. Midsize Jet pricing is $5,300 per hour round trip. Full pricing based on specific dates and departure cities available upon request.
