Headland House on Moskito Island - Perched on an outcrop at the northeast tip of Moskito Island is Headland House, the heart of the Branson Estate. This impressive villa is arranged with three bedrooms and living space on the ground floor leading up to the Great Room on the upper floor. All areas of Headland House are accessible by elevator.
The most striking feature of the ground floor at Headland House is the wrap around infinity pool that meanders from just left of the main entrance around to the Master Suite. You can quite literally step out of bed in this room and straight into the pool! The shared living space on this floor includes sitting area with TV, kitchen and circular bar just off the pool.
Children are more than welcome on Moskito Island and we can make special arrangements for your kids including tailored meals and activities. There are plenty of inflatables at the pools and the island is a fun environment for children to play. Some of our rooms can be arranged with twin beds, and our very young guests can be accommodated with their parents in the nurseries located just off the Master Suites in both Mangrove and Beach villas on the upper level. Babysitting is available on request for an extra charge so please give us as much notice as possible.
The shared Recreation Area on the island’s eastern side is where guests can take advantage of a diverse range of activities and dining opportunities based around the Beach House, infinity pool and bar, tennis pavilion, dining pavilions and water sports centre. With steady trade winds, warm turquoise waters, beautiful trails and two tennis courts, Moskito Island is the perfect playground for dozens of activities on land or on the water of course. A member of the Moskito Island team will chat to our guests each morning and again at lunchtime to arrange or facilitate any of the activities you’d like to try. Most of our activities are included in the exclusive use rate unless otherwise indicated. As a general rule if the activity involves leaving the island or if a boat with a motor is required then a charge will apply.
Fine food is the highlight of any guest's stay on Moskito, and the options are endless. We can create bespoke menus around your individual tastes, or if you’re lacking inspiration we’ll let our chefs do the work. Dining can be formal or informal, indoor or outdoor, themed or traditional, beachside or poolside, or even under the stars. All meals and events can be arranged by our team on island. The Beach House kitchen is directly adjacent to a terrace and outdoor dining area with a grill and dedicated pizza oven and seating for 25.
