The Ocean Club, featured prominently in Casino Royale, actually exists. Several scenes were filmd in and around the Club. First Bond arrives with a waterplane and drives in his Ford Mondeo to the club. After he causes some car damage at the parking, Bond goes to the lobby, where he finds out that it is Alex Dimitrios who received the sms sent by Mollaka. Later Bond plays a short poker game against Dimitrios in The Library (which is located just off te lobby) and wins his Aston Martin DB5 (with DB9 keyring). After the game he seduces Dimitrios' girlfriend Solange and takes her to his Ocean Club sea-view villa, but leaves for Miami when he finds out that Dimitrios is headed there, leaving Solange with champagne and Beluga caviar.

Bond's villa, pictured on the left, is available for rent on the One&Only Ocean Club website. Please compare photos below to see how the suite in the movie is exactly the same as the original.

Well here I am back as promised to report on our stay at the One&Only Ocean Club... Paradise Island... Bahamas... what a fantastic time we had... i'm not short of a bob or two but let me tell you this place is EXPENSIVE!!!

We arrived and had a complementary drink in "The Library" a room just off the main reception where Bond played Dimitrious on his first night at the Club... I leaned up against the bar and ordered a "large Mount Gay with Soda please" even though I don't like the drink... I spent quite a bit of time in that room soaking up the atmosphere.... I walking through the reception with my Persols on and the door which is the security room in fact leads to a storage area to the rear of the bar he leans at to order his large Mount Gay.... I've got some great photos and will try to post them soon... my beautiful girlfriend Lucy and I spent every day in the pool which Bond walks up the stairs away from at night when first going to meet Demetrious to beat him at cards... We had a sneaky peak at his Ocean view Villa (beautiful) but it looked as though I'd have had to extend my mortgage to stay there.... a few basic pointers for you if you are thinking of staying there:

Taxi is more than $30 from the airport... it says $25 on their website not accounting for the fact that the local taxi drivers must be aware that you are loaded if you stay there

Basic garden view room is £450 GBP per night including "small print extras" such as local taxes and standard room maid gratuity...

Basic drinks: glass of wine £15... Beer £8... spirits £15... glass of champagne £20

Dinner for two and nice bootle of wine/champagne... no change from £250 no matter which way you carve it up...

We were there for 5 days 4 nights and if you include the flight the total cost was £6000 GBP.... but do you know what... do it before you die and live like Bond.... we will be going back for our honeymoon...

You can stay there... for a mere $9,000 a night. =/

I have just booked a four night stay at the Ocean Club in early January 2008 to celebrate my girlfriend and Is first anniversary of going out together....garden view room not sea view...the latter was over £700 per night!!...watch this space and I'll report back in mid/late January...5 months and counting....can't wait...

My family actualy stayed here during our vacation, brilliant area and extensive security. Beaches are probably the best in the world. I did come across an interestiing tid bit of information, Sean connery actualy lives on the island, to bad i didnt bump into him, obviously hes a realy big part of the bond world.

i wanna know more detail n information, i wish u can offer me some advices or share any idea with me.
thank you:)

if i were a bird i would go to bahams and certainly ocean club .cause as a human being sometimes things rnt possible cause we have too much limitations and we r stuck. When i will be independent someday i will go to ocean club and stay in this room as james bond did and i wud enjoy the beauty rather thinking about a fight..cause in reality we r tired of fighting , surviving, bt we need to take a deep breath and this is the perfect place for me.
