Six cottages along the beach and a lagoon on Jamaica's north coast form the core of GoldenEye Hotel & Resort. Each 720-square-foot lodging has an expansive outdoor shower garden and oversize claw-foot bathtub. The over-water veranda and private dock, which extends four feet above the lagoon, feels like the over-water bungalows made famous in Bora Bora. You can dive directly into the lagoon, or use your cottage kayak to navigate the waters of Oracabessa Bay and arrive on the white sands of Low Cay Beach. The clean-edge interiors consist mainly of hardwood furnishings.
