Travel to Mustique
The easiest way to get to Mustique is via St. Lucia. Many airlines have regular direct services, including American, Delta, Jetblue, British Airways and Virgin. It is also possible to fly via Barbados, but there isn't a daily connection (other than by private charter). Please check before booking your longhaul travel. The scheduled service costs approx. US$250 each way. To arrange the connection flights, you should email Antoinette at the Mustique Company (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please note that planes cannot land on Mustique after sunset.
Once you arrive at St. Lucia, follow everyone into the arrivals building. Here you will see someone with your name on a board. Once you have passed through immigration, you will collect checked bags, and give these to the liaison agent to put on the connecting flight. At St.Lucia, you will also normally clear Mustique immigration and customs, allowing you to avoid this step in Mustique itself.
When you land in Mustique, our staff will be waiting for you. Remember to get a driving licence at the Immigration desk (currently US$25). If for any reason, nobody is there, dial the house on 8367/8567.
What to bring
Dress is always casual and you will rarely, if ever, need to wear a sweater and certainly not a jacket. Beach towels are provided in the house. We keep a variety of board games, DVDs, suntan cream, etc.
It is a good idea to keep a change of clothes, toothbrush, medicines, etc. in your handluggage, in case your checked bags don't make it all the way to Mustique with you on the same flight (this happens rarely, and bags are usually reunited with owners within 24 hours).
Fisher house has two Kawasaki mules for guest use. The staff will be happy to show you how these work, and also to collect an island map from the office for you, or feel free to pop in yourselves. The office is directly opposite the airport parking area.
Food and Drink
The majority of our provisions are ordered on the mainland of Saint Vincent although there is also an on-island grocery store and fish market. Food and beverages can be pre-ordered prior to your arrival and menus, special dietary requirements and requests can be discussed before your vacation with the Villa rentals office. Order lists for food and beverages can be sent with your booking confirmation or alternatively you can wait until your arrival and discuss your preferences with the chef or the butler once on island. All shopping and food and beverage orders will be collected by your villa staff on your behalf and every effort will be made to meet your requests. Sample menus are available on request.
Good quality wines and spirits are available from Gonsalves in St. Vincent. Their stock can be viewed at www.gonsalvesliquors.com and they accept email orders (email@example.com). Do not send credit card details by email - it is best to fax (+1 784 456 2645) or phone +1 784 457 1881.

As legends go, the “The Aristocrat, the Princess and the Rockstar” is pretty good, only this wasn’t a legend, it was true.
Over fifty years ago Lord Glenconner, Colin Tennant, arrived on Mustique and bought the undeveloped island for just £45,000. There were no roads, no jetties and no running water. Lord Glenconner’s initial ambitions were to see his new estate thrive as a cotton plantation, however his plans were not successful and he looked for other ways to develop the island.
Having given his good friend Princess Margaret a plot as a wedding present in 1960, there was considerable media interest in Mustique as a destination and in 1968 he formed the Mustique Company to develop a private island hideaway.
“Tennant indelibly set the tone, gave it its DNA”
Two architects helped shape the island during its formative years; Arne Hasselqvist, a resourceful construction engineer from Sweden, and Oliver Messel, a leading British theatre set designer who had developed a reputation for the flamboyant and original houses he had designed on neighbouring Barbados.
Their first project was to convert the old cotton warehouse into a small hotel, The Cotton House, and to establish a design concept for the island as a whole. The idea was for the island to be split into plots and sold to shareholders who would invest equally in the island. The Mustique Company which was subsequently formed limited the number of development plots and shareholders to a hundred and twenty. This was not only to preserve the island’s character but to retain exclusivity and prevent over-development. Plots were bought by an eclectic group of socialites, rock stars, designers, and artists and private individuals brought together by an overriding desire to be part of something unique.
There is a small museum situated in The Old Sugar Mill adjacent to The Cotton House whose collection of interesting photography and artefacts catalogues the story of Mustique and how ultimately, it was the vision and work of Tennant, Hasselqvist and Messel that created the blueprint that is Mustique today.
Experience Mustique…. do as much or as little as you wish….
For a small island there is a lot to do. There are a host of activities for those seeking them, from scuba diving and sailing, to tennis club and exploring the island on horseback.
Try the extreme sports of kite-surfing or deep sea diving and fishing, or take a more gentle approach, with a gentle snorkel in the many hidden coves around the island followed by a nurturing spa treatment.
Children are indulged with a host of fun activities, with water sports galore, drive-in cinemas, tennis, pony camp, beach picnics and treasure hunts, kite flying competitions and children’s menus everywhere.
Mile upon white sandy mile of pristine private beach, and warm turquoise waters combine to make Mustique a supremely private and blissful haven for anyone looking for the perfect holiday destination.
