You don’t have to be a James Bond super fan to appreciate the film franchise’s love and celebration of some of the most beautiful tropical island locations in the world. You don’t even have to know who the character is to have a reason to visit Port Antonio in Jamaica, but it’s hard not to admire (and even be a little jealous of) the way Bond always ends up in the most luxurious hotels or on the most gorgeous beaches before, during and after saving the world.
Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo in Monaco shares this sentiment and is now offering an incredible Bond experience of a lifetime. With the 25th Bond film, No Time to Die, set to open on April 3, 2020, the hotel will now allow guests to enjoy the appropriately named GoldenEye Experience.
Named for the 1995 film that introduced Pierce Brosnan as the legendary super spy, this experience is available to guests who book the Suite Carré d’Or penthouse, and the hotel has thought of everything.
The day begins with a private visit to the Monte-Carlo Casino, where Bond sat down for a quick game against Xenia Onatopp, and continues with a helicopter tour of the city. Lunch will be enjoyed at the Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo’s Japanese restaurant, Yoshi, but it’s really just an appetizer for the most important Bond activity: cruising the French Riviera in an Aston Martin.
The evening is when the romance begins, as a couples massage welcomes guests upon their return, and is followed by a candlelit dinner prepared by the culinary team at Restaurant Joël Robuchon on the Suite Carré d’Or penthouse’s amazing terrace that offers breathtaking views of the city and beyond. A tuxedo and evening gown will be provided for the dinner, and, upon finishing the meal, the butler will deliver gaming chips and a cigar for the return trip to the casino, where the bartender will prepare the most important Bond accessory: a martini… shaken, not stirred.
Alas, all adventures must come to an end, and upon returning to the penthouse, guests will be greeted by rose petals and champagne. All that’s missing is a super villain, but with so much action in one day, you probably won’t even have time to save the world.
