Remarkable. But what does the club secretary have to say?
Oh, nothing, Mister Bond. I own the club.
We thrilled to over 30 James Bond locations during Own The Club, November’s Bond Fan Events spectacular . . .
. . . Welcome home, Mister Bond. Some of our Jamaica 007 tour group gathered early at Miami’s Hotel Urbanica . . .
. . . for South Beach mojitos from a great fan himself, hotel manager Sexton Garcia, who welcomes all Bond fans for similar treatment
007 fans traveled from as far as Texas, New Jersey and British Columbia to Ocho Rios’s Sans Souci Resort, named by Condé Nast as a Top 10 Resort Worldwide
The Sans Souci appears in many scenes in Dr. No and Live and Let Die. We were met with champagne where Bond learned “Mrs. Bond” had entered Bungalow 12. Professor Dent was coldly killed nearby.
The resort features unlimited tennis, golf and water sports. This photo looks toward Roger Moore’s suite during filming.
Sans Souci also hosted a party with Richard Kiel, George Lazenby, Grace Jones, Ursula Andress and Chris Blackwell for Jamaica’s James Bond Festival, in 1996.
We loved the gourmet dining at Sans Souci’s restaurants . . .
. . . And fans tasted from 32 martini varieties at the Martini Bar.
We toured 17 Dr. No locations, 13 Live and Let Die locations, and multiple Ian Fleming locations during our week in Jamaica together
