Saint Vincent & the Grenadines
Mustique is unquestionably one of the most exclusive islands in the world.
Known for its seclusion, it’s the perfect escape for those seeking privacy in paradise. Steeped in history, the island is part of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, just west of Barbados, and has a stream of famous faces and royalty that come here to holiday in luxurious villas.
The gentle year-round climate, pristine palm-fringed beaches and remarkable marine reserve combined with the most exclusive collection of over 70 villas make Mustique a truly private idyll. Ranging from intimate 2 bedroom cottages suitable for honeymooners or couples through to the 10 bedroom private estates perfect for groups of friends, all come complete with private terraces, infinity pools and inspiring sea views. Best of all are the in-the-know staff that come with every villa. Chefs can rustle up mahi-mahi ceviche and jerk chicken – or sumptuous picnics for a trip to one of the nine beaches. Your butler can arrange activities: horse riding on the beach, snorkelling jewel-like coral gardens where turtles float by, or a day on a boat visiting nearby tropical islands.
As private as your holiday will be, everyone ends up at Basil’s Bar at some point. Guests gather to watch the spectacular sunset with a delicious rum cocktail in hand, accompanied by some freshly grilled lobster or kingfish. Elsewhere you’ll find a range of dining options from barefoot beach barbecues to formal a la carte dining.
Mustique is a private island, just a 50-minute flight from Barbados or St Lucia.
