Goldeneye, Oracabessa Bay, Jamaica
Vibe: A rockstar resort with glamorous heritage.
Setting: 58 acres of tropical paradise, with a placid turquoise lagoon and a private beach.
Why parents love it: GoldenEye began life as Ian Fleming’s 1950s holiday home, and it remains one of the island’s coolest hideaways. Kayak to the FieldSpa for a lemongrass Bush Bath, jetski across the bay at sunrise, or sample a Blackwell Rum cocktail (created by owner Chris Blackwell) – unforgettable.
Why kids love it: Teens in particular will have a ball here. They can hone their skills with paddleboarding lessons, or try guided kayaking and snorkelling amid rainbow-hued reefs. Come sundown, there’s the chance to meet new friends at the communal beach bonfire.
