The private island of Mustique is one of the Caribbean’s more sophisticated travel destinations. Security, privacy and natural beauty are the main priorities on the island. During the high season (at Easter, from beginning to mid-August and at Christmas/ New Year’s Eve), Mustique is pulsating and lively with many entertainment offerings, from Yoga to Jump up in Basil’s Bar and the open air cinema. Enjoy the mid-season tranquillity of the island and the weekly cocktail party at Cotton House which also offers a spa with beauty treatment and massages.
At an extra charge, sports activities are available at the water sports centre and the horse-riding centre or you can participate in a golfing excursion to the neighbouring islands Canouan or Barbados. Volleyball, basketball, tennis and the fitness trail are free of charge. Three small boutiques offer souvenirs and clothes and there is also a supermarket.
Lord Glenconner (Honourable Colin Tennant) bought the uninhabited island in 1958 for 67,500 US$. A great visionary, he offered Princess Margaret an undeveloped land plot as his wedding present in 1960, which was the beginning of a beautifully gentle development of the island to become today’s luxury holiday paradise.
