Escape from the world. Spend lazy days bathing in the warm Caribbean, or lazing on a secluded beach – or watching the hypnotic rhythms of Atlantic rollers – and you’ll understand the mystique that Mustique holds for international celebrities.
Mustique is the quintessentially understated Caribbean retreat. It’s an enthralling place that seems to have been created specifically for those travellers who wish to experience the world’s finest destinations…without the rest of the world joining them. It is a particularly private, private island – which is probably why so many international, high-profile figures from royalty, show business and the music industry, the arts and politics have graced this small corner of the Caribbean.
Princess Margaret was once a frequent visitor and had a home here. James Bond also lived here, at least in the imagination of the author and resident Ian Fleming. David Bowie bought a house on the island. Mick Jagger has been a frequent visitor, perhaps leading the way for the likes Amy Winehouse, Kate Moss, the Beckhams and Prince William.
But talk to Alison Jones – our Mustique consultant – and you’ll find this tiny, 1400 acre gem isn’t just about famous visitors. It has a wildly beautiful interior – home to an amazing array of exotic birds and fragrant flowers. It’s fringed with rocky headlands, glorious beaches and a marine conservation area. Mustique is also able to offer one of the world’s most attractive features – splendid seclusion.
