Fodor's Review

Whether you're a fan of James Bond or luxury getaways, this exclusive address 20 minutes east of Ocho Rios holds special appeal. In 1946 James Bond creator Ian Fleming bought what was a donkey racecourse on a lagoon and built a villa that is now owned by Island Records magnate Chris Blackwell. It's available to rent as your very own five-bedroom getaway with full house staff. Also on the 52-acre property are 20 additional units (nine beach cottages, two lagoon cottages, six lagoon suites, and three villas). Dining is available at the gazebo restaurant, and the bar has a soundtrack selected by Blackwell. Paddle across the lagoon to the spa for natural open-air treatments.
