Cotton House, Mustique...

Lets journey together over the Atlantic to the Caribbean where we find ourselves on the private island of Mustique.  Part of the country of St Vincent and the Grenadines, the island has approximately 100 private villa’s and a population of approximately 500.  Over the years, Mustique has attracted visits from royalty, celebrities and those seeking a unique island in the crowded Caribbean area.  Spanish sailors first set eyes on the islands in the 15th century and named them ‘Los Parajoras’ or ‘the birds’, because they resembled a small flock of birds scattered across the sea in flight.  They were later named the Grenadines by pirates who used their sheltered bays to hide their ships and treasures.  Later they were used by Europeans to grow sugar cane which have since been abandoned.  With its fascinating past, and quality accommodation, Mustique offers a wonderful option for a quality winter holiday option.

Cotton House...
Seclusion, sophistication and charm epitomise the luxury private island of Mustique in the Grenadines. Situated on a picturesque hillside flanked by views of the ocean, Cotton House is one of the Caribbean’s leading luxury resorts and is distinguished as the only hotel on an island otherwise popular for private residences of the rich, famous and even royalty.

Originally an 18th century sugar mill and cotton warehouse, the hotel has retained all the charm and colonial influences of its former life. Today the Cotton House is a paragon of chic Caribbean styling with modern and refreshed design. Recent refurbishments in October 2011 have brought enticing new interiors to the Deluxe and Superior rooms in the Coutinot House, now boasting contemporary décor based on deep blue or coral red. Each of the 17 luxurious guest rooms, cottages, suites and two bedroom Cotton Hill Residence offer the finest furnishings and amenities; some of which include private plunge pools and all offer outstanding views.

Delicious food in the newly revamped Veranda Restaurant, a soothing spa, beautiful beaches and crystalline pool are but a few of the hotel’s stunning features. It is also a hub for social soirées where guests and island villa owners convene on Tuesday nights in The Great Room for champagne and canapés.

Cotton House enjoys a reputation as a relaxing and intimate retreat, making it a perfect place for couples and honeymooners to unwind and immerse in the magic of Mustique.
