Stay where James Bond was created…Spend five nights at the iconic Fleming Villa, where Ian Fleming wrote all fourteen Bond books. The private Villa is tucked inside lush grounds behind tall trees and has its own private beach, a pool, self-contained gardens and a media room with wet bar.
This private oasis features the original three-bedroom Villa which encompasses a master suite, a queen-sized bedroom, and a bedroom with two twin beds. Each of these bedrooms has its own large, tropical garden bath area with clawfoot tub and a garden shower. There are also two standalone guest cottages, ‘Sweet Spot’ and the ‘Pool Room.’ Each has a veranda, clawfoot tub, outdoor shower and king-sized bed. The cottages sleep two adults and cribs are available on request. The Fleming Villa sleeps up to ten people and a dedicated team will be on hand to pamper you including two butlers, an executive chef, and housekeepers. Your butlers will arrange anything you would like to do during your stay, and your chef will prepare delicious local specialities.
The purchaser of this lot will also receive a facsimile of Berkley Mather's contemporary copy of the script for Dr. No. The first James Bond film, Dr. No, which was shot on location in Jamaica was released in 1962. This facsimile is taken from Mather’s original personal annotated two-part typescript working copy, which is retained by the EON archive. Berkley Mather was the 'nom de plume' for Lieutenant-Colonel Jasper Weston-Davies (1909-1996). Mather had begun writing whilst in the army, and as moonlighting was not officially permitted, adopted a pseudonym for his stories concocted from the names of the Berkeley Grill (he misspelt it) and Mathers, a chemist in Poona.
Outside of the Fleming Villa, you can book a massage at The FieldSpa or enjoy cocktails and meals at Bizot as well as attend a Sunset Cocktail party nightly around the GoldenEye property. Arrange a snorkelling expedition along the same snorkelling path that Ian Fleming loved to frequent or arrange a fishing trip with one of our seasoned, local fishermen.
