The Cotton House

5* out of 5 stars

The Cotton House, located on the remote and private Caribbean island of Mustique, is the epitome of exclusivity and, further to being the oldest building on the island, is also its only full-service hotel. With the Caribbean Sea to the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the east it is not hard to imagine why this place is an attractive destination for celebrities and royalty alike. Nestled on 13 beautiful acres, this holiday sanctuary is widely regarded as one of the premier resorts in the Caribbean.

The hotel provides 17 high-luxury guest rooms, cottages and suites, all featuring private patios, verandas, panoramic views and pools. The two-bedroom Residence features its own dedicated butler plus outdoor gazebo and private pool. In order for your holiday to be the rejuvenating experience it should be, the Cotton House is home to an exclusive Spa offering a wide array of healing and relaxing treatments.

Things to See and Do at Cotton House

Breakfast is served on the Veranda Terrace or in your room, and private dinners can be arranged throughout the resort. For the more formal occasion, dine in style at the acclaimed Veranda restaurant and Great Room Bar. Why not follow your delicious meal with a cigar and cordial whilst enjoying the scenery on the terrace. With the Cotton House being directly on the beach, water sports such as kayaking, wind surfing, snorkelling and boat trips are all available.

Alternatively, if you just want to bask in the sun you can choose between the Cotton House beach and Endeavor Bay. Guests may also stroll across to L’Ansecoy Bay on the Atlantic side. A crystalline pool sits atop a slight hill and overlooks the resort’s manicured gardens while fashionistas can get a little retail therapy at the boutique. Discover designer pieces from Anya Hindmarch® and Antik Batik® plus jewellery from House of Harlow® and Devon Leigh®.

Cotton House Mustique: Getting There

St Lucia Hewanorra airport (UVF) is the main international gateway to Mustique (MQS). You can also choose a route through Barbados. Mustique Island operates in conjunction with Grenadine Airways and provides a daily flight (flight time 30mins) on a Twin Otter aircraft to coincide with international flights. Once guests have confirmed hotel accommodation, the hotel will coordinate your air transfers to and from Mustique. An indication of flight operating times is as follows:

UVF / MQS Depart 16h00 or 16h15, arrive 16h30 or 16h45 | MQS / UVF Depart 10h00, arrive 10h30 | Depart 16h45, arrive 17h15 | BGI / MQS Depart 16h30, arrive 17h15 | MQS / BGI Depart 11h00, arrive 11h55 | Depart 14h00, arrive 14h55.

Please note: Mustique airport runway is not lighted, meaning the airport closes after sunset. Similarly, flights cannot leave Mustique before 7am, hence onward international flights should be booked to take this into consideration and the minimum connection required by UVF airport. Your hotel reservations team can advise on this further.
