It is an extraordinary experience: a private island, the unique product of one man’s vision that has developed over time into an exclusive and ultimately desirable destination. The island’s gentle climate and natural beauty of dramatic hilltops and pristine palm fringed beaches is now pleasingly combined with a world class degree of modern luxury.
In 1958 Lord Glenconner bought the island, despite the fact it had no roads, no jetties and no running water. Having gifted his good friend Princess Margaret a 10 acre plot in 1960 as a wedding gift, there was considerable media interest in Mustique and in 1968 Glenconner formed the Mustique Company to develop a private island hideaway specifically for the rich and famous. Plots were quickly bought by an eclectic group of socialites, rock stars and private individuals who flocked, and continue to flock, to the island to create their fantasy dream houses and to be part of something unique - the quintessential private island paradise, safe and exclusively reserved for a discerning and wealthy clientele. It is the owners of the 100 odd principle villas of the island who run all affairs.
Famously, there are no ‘rules’ on the island, no rules, no protocols or expectations. Guests can simply do as they wish – as long as they comport themselves sociably. Evidently the sea offers all its attractions, from lazing on pristine white beaches to scuba diving, sailing, snorkelling with the Turtles at nearby Tobago Cays, fishing and diving, whilst inland there are trails and horse riding tracks to pursue.
The tropical oasis is spread across 2.2 sq miles of land with dramatic hilltops, white sandy beaches and pristine, turquoise sea. It is one of the few places left in the world that offers privacy and seclusion.
