Private jets, stupendously beautiful islands and even more stupendously beautiful companions, mostly clad in bikinis – there’s no denying James Bond knows a thing or two about travelling in style. If you happen to be Jamaica bound, you too, can live like Ian Fleming’s suave secret agent with the Ultimate Bond Adventure Experience. The curated Bond journey, which can accommodate up to 10 travellers, begins in Jamaica on board a privately charted Magellan Jet.
Departing from Jamaica’s Ian Fleming International Airport, set aside exclusively for private jets and scheduled charters, your destination is the luxurious Strawberry Hill Hotel & Spa, where the views over Kingston and Jamaica’s Blue Mountains are best enjoyed from the infinity pool, martini in hand. After two nights of indulging in luxury, massages and rummaging through your Bond-themed gift basket, a helicopter will arrive (how very 007!) to whisk you to the ultimate secret-agent hideaway: GoldenEye. Fleming wrote all his novels about the British spy’s escapades at his lush estate on Jamaica’s pristine north coast.
In its 1950s heyday, the estate also played host to glitterati and literati – writers, musicians and heads of state. Now owned by Island Records founder, Chris Blackwell, it’s a Bond-worthy destination with luxe villas and dreamy ocean views. The lucky few can even stay in Fleming’s own private villa, which has its own stretch of beach, a private pool, a butler and best of all – Fleming’s old writing desk. You only live once.
