Oh! The nightlife

For those with a penchant to rub shoulders with magazine cover models, fashion designers, Grammy winners, or glamorous globetrotters, the Tuesday night all-island cocktail party at The Cotton House, Mustique ensures an opportunity to imbibe in the company of famous new friends. Mix and mingle over cocktails and you may even be able to score an invite to a private house party, a popular nightlife option among the younger set. Basil’s Bar is the place you’ll find live music nearly every night of the week, including a jazz band that performs Sunday evening.

A tucked away wonder

If you are thinking it is difficult to reach this private destination, then that is not the case at all. You just need to book with their preferred international carrier making stops in either Barbados or St. Lucia. From either of the international airports on those islands, the Mustique Company will provide private air shuttle to their idyllic island location. This Caribbean paradise founded by the British aristocrat Colin Tennant is a tucked away wonder and a secret worth keeping.
