Dapper's Delight

Your own beach, pool, and staff: where James Bond was born

Think of the world’s swankiest hotspots: Dubai, St. Tropez, Monte Carlo.

Think of Jamaica yet? You should have.
Welcome to the land of Bond. James Bond.
That's right. Bond, the baddest secret agent on the planet, ain't no Brit. He was dreamed up in Jamaica in a place now called Fleming Villa. This private slice of beach inspired author Ian Fleming to create a martini-drinking, supermodel-loving superspy.

Visit this place and everything Fleming's is now yours: The original 007 master suite complete with Fleming’s writing desk, private beach, al fresco shower, and dedicated staff to fulfill your every desire.
Whether you want your martini shaken or stirred, just ask your in-house butler.
Hungry? Let your chef grill some Jamaican jerk chicken and eat it overlooking the ocean.
If you happen to somehow tire of your villa or its lush tropical gardens, you’ve got a 64-inch TV in the media room and a serious sound system in the pool house. 
Perfect for island screenings of Skyfall.
