Travel magnate who got started with Bond dies at 79

18-Jan-2021 • Bond News

Caribbean travel magnate Gordon Stewart, who founded Sandals and Beaches resorts businesses has died at the age of 79. 

His story of how he got started in the travel business begins with Bond.

In 1962 when he was in his early 20s, Stewart saw a moneymaking opportunity while the first James Bond film 'Dr. No' was being shot in Jamaica. He borrowed his father’s motorboat to take Connery and the film crew to location sites, including a shipwreck.

As well as his resorts, he founded the daily Jamaica Observer to compete with the island’s oldest newspaper, the Gleaner.
