These are some of the highlights of a week in Mustique – but remember, this is a tailor-made journey and the pace can build as you wish. This is no ordinary adventure…
Mustique is a peaceful, protected haven that offers exclusive, private island living with none of the modern world’s distractions – no congestion, traffic lights, day visitors, beach vendors or litter. You may find yourself totally alone on its white sand beaches
where even renowned spots such as Macaroni Bay remain tranquil and uncrowded.
After a short hop on a private charter from Barbados or St. Lucia, you will be transferred to your breathtaking private villa. A creative and delicious culinary delight will be awaiting you on the spectacular terrace overlooking the infinity pool. After supper, take a relaxing stroll in the tropical gardens or sip a cocktail as the amber sun slips into the distant horizon.
Day 1 - Watersports and Sailing
Your first morning on this magical island begins with a healthy but satisfying breakfast prepared by your personal chef. A wonderful variety of activities are available any time you desire, from tennis, watersports and horse-riding to simply relaxing around your own private pool and sundeck.
Watersports and sailing are ideal to set the tone for a week of luxurious island life. The team will take you to some of the renowned dive sites of the Grenadine Islands. View fish and coral through a glass-bottomed kayak or snorkel at a variety of locations off the island. There is also plenty of excitement on the water’s surface: rent a sailboat or explore nearby beaches by kayak. Try your hand at windsurfing or workout on a
‘Barracuda’ pedal ride.
DAY 2 - Horseback Riding and Basil’s Beach
For your every request, the house butler is there to serve you and ensure your stay is nothing less than perfect. In addition, your personal cook will prepare a range of dining experiences from tropical island breakfasts, barbeque beach picnics and poolside gazebo lunches to delicious villa dining by candlelight in your private dining room.
It is easy to find beautiful solitude on a walk around this gorgeous island or perhaps a little horseback riding on a secluded white sand beach. Riders can also trek up into the hills, admiring the incredible views of the picturesque Grenadine Islands. There are horses to suit every riding level for children as well as adults.
In the afternoon, take it easy and relax. For sundowner cocktails, we invite you to the famous bar of one of Mustique’s best-known residents, Basil Charles. Sitting on stilts at the water’s edge of Britannia Bay, Basil’s provides the perfect setting to marvel at the beautiful sunset and enjoy casual drinks and food.
DAY 3 - Hiking and Cotton House
Explore the island along hiking trails or in your complimentary vehicle and discover the nine unspoilt beaches, magnificent wildlife, birds, and plants that abound. Lunch can be enjoyed at the Cotton House Beach Café overlooking Endeavour Bay. The charming Cotton House estate is the only hotel on the island and also offers afternoon tea served on the veranda and wonderful candlelit dinners in their Veranda Restaurant. The Great Room is the venue for the weekly hosted cocktail party where you can meet your fellow guests and make new friends.
Late afternoon, enjoy a relaxing spa treatment or rejuvenating massages.
DAY 4 - Day Trips
The plentiful trips exploring the surrounding areas of Mustique offer wonderful days out. Cruise the magnificent islands on a stunning sailing experience to the Tobago Cays - a protected marine park with idyllic, uninhabited islands and incredible snorkelling or visit nearby Bequia with its quaint town, boat building traditions and stunning beaches. You may also like to include a visit to St. Vincent, explore the La Soufriere volcano
and waterfalls and the Salt Pond at Owia.
Alternatively, if you like to keep fit, let us arrange a day of golf at the International Golf Club on nearby Canouan Island, or take tennis lessons with Mustique’s resident tennis pro, Richard Schaffer. Tournaments can be organised for the more experienced players and kids can have fun at the junior/pee-wee camps available in the holidays.
DAY 5 - Fishing and Macaroni Beach
Among the many activities you can try on your holiday here is fishing. There are many areas of the Grenadines that are ideal fishing grounds and every one of them has its specific appeal. You can try it yourself or organize a competition with your friends and family. Then your catch of the day can be prepared on the BBQ all while watching the magnificent sunset.
Alternatively, if fishing is not your thing, take an afternoon stroll along Pasture Bay to discover the leatherback turtle nests (seasonal). Continue along the stone paths to Simplicity and Macaroni beaches to jump the waves with your children. On your return, enjoy a delicious picnic served by your butler.
Later in the afternoon and for something sweet, head down to delightful Britannia Bay for some homemade ice cream to complete your day.
DAY 6 - Relaxation and Romantic Dinner
Spend your last day taking in everything Mustique does best – relax on one of the stunning beaches, enjoy a rejuvenating massage within the comfort of your villa or take in the island’s natural beauty, rolling landscapes and deserted beaches.
Head to the Treasure Boutiques for gifts to take home. We recommend a visit to these treasure troves of fashion and the perfect answer to the island’s chic dress code.
The Firefly cocktail bar is especially romantic for sunset with its legendary views over the bay. The dining is first class and at night, with candlelit tables arranged on the balcony, the ambience is even more magical.
DAY 7 - Farewell Mustique
Your private charter flight back to Barbados or St. Lucia will leave in the afternoon so time enough to savour your last moments on Mustique. An opportunity to relax, swim and enjoy the surroundings of your stunning villa. Take your time over a sumptuous brunch in the gazebo before saying your farewells and transferring to the airport to begin your journey home.
