Island Outpost Breaks Ground at GoldenEye, Jamaica


Island Outpost, a collection of hotels and villas in Jamaica, began the expansion of its famed GoldenEye resort with an official groundbreaking ceremony held August 14. Phase one of the development will be completed in the last quarter of 2010 and will include 11 beachfront cottages as well as a new beachfront restaurant.

The architectural focus is in the traditional Jamaican vernacular as award-winning Jamaican architect, Ann Hodges, re-introduces the classic Caribbean cottage complete with such contemporary comforts as wood-clad exteriors, jalousie shutters, and exotic outdoor showers. Formally the home of Ian Fleming, who penned the legacy of James Bond in the 1950s, GoldenEye estate was acquired in 1977 by Chris Blackwell, and since then has been turned into a luxury destination resort.
