East Caribbean Dollar
Mustique is the treasure of St Vincent and the Grenadines. A true haven of luxury, the story of this private island hideaway has far from humble begins. Bought by Lord Glenconner in 1948, this unspoilt tropical jewel was fated to impress, as it underwent a transformation into a purpose-built retreat for the rich and famous who were seeking a unique place to escape the publicity of their lives. Today, it’s reputation continues to precede it as one of the ultimate private holiday destinations, where an exclusive hub of exquisitely designed villas nestles above the sumptuous sands and azure waters, with views scattered only by a handful of peaceful yachts and swaying palms. The only hotel on the island is the prestigious Cotton House, designed in 1968 as the first building project on the island. Wherever you stay, though, you are destined to discover paradise. Days can be spent relaxing on the beaches as you graze on a gourmet picnic, scuba diving in the beautifully clear waters or exploring the island on horseback – just to name a few activities. However, the main draw is simply being here. Whether partaking in a beachfront yoga class, enjoying lunch by the waterfront or soaking in the views from your private pool, Mustique offers a sense of private luxury that simply oozes from within.
From Barbados, it is a short flight of approximately 45 minutes to Mustique.
