Couples Sans Souci - The James Bond Jamaican Beach Location

Are you looking for a little secrecy in your next vacation? Why not follow in the footsteps of the world’s foremost superspy and check out his favorite holiday spot. Sean Connery first hit the screen as James Bond in the 1962 classic, Dr. No. After interrogating a few baddies on the way from the airport, he settled into the James Bond resort in Jamaica that is now Couples Sans Souci. An elegant resort carved into the cliffside with winding walkways, natural mineral springs, hidden grottos, lush foliage and breathtaking beauty – it’s no wonder that Bond couldn't stay away. In 1973 Roger Moore returned to 007’s favorite hotel in Live and Let Die – clearly our dry martinis (shaken not stirred) passed the test.

The resort has always had a close connection to James Bond – and even features a penthouse suite named after Roger Moore (pictured below). However, if you want get even closer to the origins of 007, be sure to stay in Miss Taro’s Bungalow, now the luxurious Couples Sans Souci Resort.
