GoldenEye's deliciously laid-back atmosphere and mix of peninsulas, tangled greenery and golden-sugar-like coves make it perfect for romantic getaways. The kind of people who come here are usually highly creative individuals, looking for that somewhere different on the Caribbean hit list. Book one of the Lagoon Cottages, with their fabulous outdoor baths and furnished decks, for lazy, sun-kissed days lagoonside, or a gorgeous bamboo Beach Hut, steps from the sands where you can swing in hammocks and catch the ocean breeze. Follow this with a candlelit dinner for two at the tip of the peninsula and toast romance with a glass of fizz!
GoldenEye's lush grounds are sprinkled with hideaway coves and beaches lapped by warm, blue seas. Croissant-shaped Low Cay is the main beach, an expansive swathe of silky-soft sand with a castaway feel. Button Beach, meanwhile, is a delightful little cove with a rum shack for refreshing pitstops in between sunbathing and watersports. Swim with fish in Snorkeler's Cove, paddleboard around Oracabessa Bay, kayak along the craggy coastline or splash about in the tranquil lagoon. Round off a day with a torchlit barbecue on a secret beach, rippling waves and reggae music the backdrop to amazing food.

There is such a relaxed, typically-Jamaican atmosphere at Goldeneye it’s not uncommon to find guests and staff playing backgammon and Hollywood rummy on the beach, however if you would prefer to do something a little less sedate, there are horse riding centres and golf courses just thirty minutes away.
