Island Outpost breaks ground at Goldeneye, Jamaica

Island Outpost, a collection of distinctive hotels and villas in Jamaica, began the expansion of its famed GoldenEye resort with an official groundbreaking ceremony last week. For more than sixty years, GoldenEye has been synonymous with glamour and style. Formally the home of Ian Fleming, who penned the legacy of James Bond in the 1950s, GoldenEye estate was acquired in 1977 by Chris Blackwell, and since then has been turned into a luxury destination resort. Now, Blackwell is expanding with new residences.  Phase I of the development will be completed in the last quarter of 2010 and will include eleven beachfront cottages and a new beachfront restaurant. The cottages will come complete with contemporary comforts: wood-clad exteriors, jalousie shutters, and exotic outdoor showers.
