No Time to Die, the latest James Bond film, was released on September 28 and is still screening at movie theaters across the globe. As Daniel Craig suited up for one last go as the famous 007 character, travelers across the U.S. can join in on the fun and transform into the iconic character for the day.
Shelborne South Beach and the Marker Key West Resort have direct connections to James Bond films and their filming locations in Florida. This year, in line with the release of the epic 25th installment of the legendary franchise, these properties have debuted over-the-top experiences for travelers to step into 007’s shoes.
James Bond and South Florida have always gone hand in hand. Both Goldfinger and License to Kill were filmed in and around Miami and Key West, and the classic Bond-themed cocktail bar Vesper was once located at the Shelborne South Beach. The Shelborne is now offering guests the entire 007 experience with “The Vesper” overnight package, which includes shopping for a custom suit with a personal shopper in Miami’s Design District and driving a luxury automobile with Miami Exotic Car Rentals. Rooms also feature a Casino Night theme with limited edition Blackwell Rum, as well as a Vesper Martini Mixology Kit. If that’s not enough, the “Golden Gun” dessert will make for a great finale.
When Timothy Dalton took the lead as James Bond in the 1989 classic License to Kill, the film featured iconic footage of the Florida Keys’ 7-mile bridge, The Ernest Hemingway House, Mallory Square, and the U.S Coast Guard Pier, among other settings. Now, the Marker Key West Harbor Resort is offering travelers the life of James Bond with a luxury charter boating experience, Tom Ford FT108 Sunglasses (just like Daniel Craig), stargazing, and Blackwell Rum.
