We spent a week at the Cotton House over Christmas 2012 and it was divine. Despite the indirect flights needed to make it to the island, Mustique is worth the visit. It was our first visit despite 30 years of encouraging reports and I regretted not having visited earlier. From landing in Barbados, the hotel staff were on hand to... More

We had heard of Mustique for years and were curious about it. About 15 years ago, our travel agent warned us that since we are not rock stars, British aristocrats or any other kind of celebrity, we might feel a bit "out of place" at the Cotton House, or indeed, anywhere on the island. So we went to other islands... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cotton House is as intriguing as it is beautiful. Originally an 18th century sugar plantation hidden away on the private island of Mustique, Lord Glenconner gave it a new lease of life in the early 1970s blending lush tropical beauty with plantation-style elegance and creating an exclusive retreat tailormade for visiting high flyers. Today it is owned by the Mustique Company, who’ve introduced such contemporary ‘must haves’ as a designer spa and infinity-edge pool, the romantic colonial mood remains evident throughout.The resort stands on a picturesque hilltop between the tranquil Caribbean Sea and the windswept Atlantic Ocean. Just 17 charming rooms & suites provide the accommodation dotted throughout the 13 acre grounds and thoughtfully equipped with mini-bars, CD players and private terraces or balconies. Private plunge pools are exciting new additions to eleven of the rooms, whilst a new two-bedroom villa with its own swimming pool and 24 hour butler gives a taste of the island-style living. A perfect hideaway and intimate destination. ... more   less
