This stylish refuge is located close to the town of Oracabessa and was formerly the home of James Bond creator Ian Fleming until his death in 1964. Though once known chiefly as a celebrity hangout, this 49-room property, owned by legendary record producer Chris Blackwell, is now ideal for couples and families alike. The estate features beachfront dwellings and a beautiful lagoon. The accommodations range in style from villas and cottages to the more exclusive stilted beach huts featuring louvered windows and private verandas with outdoor showers. Dining options include the beachside Bamboo Bar, the treehouse-style Gazebo restaurant and, the social hub of the property, Bizot Bar. Amenities include a well-equipped club offering a range of water sports, several swimming pools and a new spa housed within a cottage at the edge of the lagoon.
Lowest Rate: Beach Hut, $620; Editor’s Choice: Beach Villa, $1,530.
