Holiday in Jamaica like James Bond

Holidaymakers can now live like the creator of Britain's greatest superspy, James Bond.

Those venturing over to the sunny climes of Jamaica's northern coast will find the tropical luxury of Goldeneye, a retreat Ian Fleming used as an exotic muse for his stories of 007's sexy subterfuge and evil geniuses.

The rich and verdant surroundings and beaches leave one in no doubt that Goldeneye was the inspiration for many of his stories, including Dr No and You Only Live Twice.

Indeed, a nod was finally made to the significance of Jamaica's Goldeneye when it was turned into a film in 1995.

The opportunity to stay in Fleming's old hideaway is not just a big draw for Bond fans, thanks to the hidden away cove's bold attractions of tranquillity, rich sounds and colours.

The Goldeneye villa is available to stay in during one's time in the Jamaican resort, decked out with verandas and balconies, from where you can enjoy the view of the Caribbean sea.

There are outdoor pools to bathe in for those who do not fancy the sea, as well as marine tours with snorkelling and glass-bottomed boats.

The resort is often called the most tropical of its kind, and while it may not have the profound effect on you that it had on Fleming

I heard that they intended to do a mammoth renovation on it, I certainly hope not- because it would be perfect for a secluded getaway.

Aren't the other villas on the estate called Honeychile, Vesper, Domino, Solitaire and Tiffany?
