Goldeneye has three types of accommodation to offer its guests – cottages, beach huts and the unique lagoon hut. .
These 26 colourful beach huts are freestanding buildings with high ceilings, sitting at either 3, 5 or 10 feet above the sand to ensure sublime views over Snorkeler’s Cove or Oracabessa Bay. The large, louvered windows allow sea breezes to keep the beach huts cool so there’s no need for air conditioning.
The interiors are decorated in calm colours with locally made furniture designed to enhance the beach hut vibe. Each has a king size bed, an interior wet room with double rain-shower heads, local toiletries, bathrobes, towels, Apple TV, a Sonos wireless speaker, a mini bar/fridge, coffee maker, a hairdryer, an iron and ironing board and a safe. Many have a garden, an outdoor shower and bath and all have a furnished veranda.
