Mangrove House on Moskito Island - This villa was inspired by Richard’s son Sam, and all guest rooms face east towards Necker Island and to the island of Virgin Gorda. Nestled in amongst the mangrove trees, all rooms are elevated and connected both to Headland House and to the neighboring Beach Villa by wooden walkways. The rich wood interiors make for a cosy feel with Balinese style objects and carvings throughout.
On the ground floor of the main villa is a large lounge, fully-equipped kitchen, two breakfast bars and dining table, all looking out onto a deck which leads directly onto the infinity edge pool and Jacuzzi. With a full-size fridge, separate temperature-controlled wine fridge and additional drinks fridge in the kitchen, you only have to worry about keeping yourself cool. Luckily if the sea breezes aren’t enough, the villa is fully air-conditioned and there’s always the pool of course.
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.
