Travelers planning a holiday on the exclusive (and “best kept secret”) island of Mustique already know that it is a small and luxurious spot to travel. With a limited number of premium villas and properties, in addition to one guest house and the Cotton House hotel, it is a peaceful and pristine place to explore.
With coastline along the Atlantic and Caribbean, it offers nine gorgeous beaches and a wonderful array of unique scenery. Most travelers love that the emphasis is on the natural beauty of the island, and its tranquil surroundings. Popular with the British royal family and celebrities from all parts of the globe, it offers one of the most unique places for a holiday or honeymoon.
Most of the private villas provide visitors with the attentive services of a private chef. This is a skilled professional well acquainted with the finest cuisine as well as tropical favorites. They will provide meals whenever or wherever the guests require, including picnics for a day at the beach, candlelight dinners on the villa terrace or romantic area of the island, and even a breakfast or two in bed.
However, dining on Mustique is not limited to the tasty meals and snacks prepared by your chef. There are quite a few formal and casual dining spots available to the island’s guests as well.
