Get your Goldfinger on at Jamaica’s GoldenEye Hotel & Resort (former home of James Bond creator, author Ian Fleming), where they’ve just announced a new promotional package that allows guests to follow in the footsteps of the dashing British secret agent.

The package coincides with the recent release of Matthew Parker’s GoldenEye: Where Bond Was Born, which profiles Fleming’s life on the island during the 1950s.

Superspies-in-the-making will be shaken (and stirred) by the Goldeneye Revisited package, which includes four nights in a lagoon cottage, a beach villa, or in Fleming’s own five-bedroom residence (where his writing desk remains), as well as a host of add-ons (For Your Eyes Only, of course).

Take a private tour of Firefly, the hilltop home of Fleming’s chum, playwright Noel Coward; meet Ramsay DaCosta, the author’s gardener, who still works on the property; and enjoy a snorkel excursion to Fleming’s beloved reef.

Other inclusions: a beachfront Bond movie and bonfire night; a fishing tour; and a guided evening on the town to soak up the local nightlife (with a stop at Casino Royale, perhaps?)
