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.

We stayed in a very nice villa in Mustique, Azure and went for dinner at Cotton House The whole island is fantastic, quiet and safe. Quite a unique retreat in today’s world. Everyone is tested before disembarking and must have two vaccine shots. This is the key to enjoy holiday old style.

We stayed at the Cotton House for 5 nights in December - lovely boutique hotel with a great feel and a fantastic beach - a great way to experience the "Mustique way of life". In no particular order: friendly and personal service, fantastic beach (with a really good snorkelling spot next to it), relaxed atmosphere, a sense of history, buildings and grounds exuding charm and serenity, lovely room with plunge pool... definitely a great place to relax and chill out. This was our first stay in Mustique and it is as fantastic as they say (or even better!): beautiful island, laid back and friendly atmosphere, lots of space (one can easily have a beach for oneself) etc. A truly magical experience and a fantastic way to escape the pandemic, even for a few days only.

The legendary Cotton House hotel is all about the location- on one of the prettiest islands in the Caribbean and with a beautiful beach. It’s very old school with wonderful staff, but the rooms, televisions and gyms could use some updating. The villas straddle the fine line between “shabby chic” and just plain shabby, and when the wind blows all the shutters and windows rattle like crazy. We were given a nice upgrade and the service is terrific. Of the two restaurants, the beach cafe serves descent lunch, but the Dinner restaurant is disappointing. No outstanding meals and no specials or variety, at least during our stay. Gym and spa could use a makeover. Finally, even though they threw a terrific New YearsEve party, the place could use some livening up, with more live music to put one in the mood, especially during the beach dining. Overall, a charming place but not up to the standards one expects in this price range, on such an exclusive island.

We started our Honeymoon at the Cotton House 30 years ago so it was wonderful to share the Anniversary with friends and to have Dinner there on the exact date. We had a table on the veranda looking out towards the beach ✅ We had impeccable service ✅. The menus lacked nothing in terms of variety and the execution was spot on. It is a dreamy location and I missed the ambience as soon as I left.

We stayed 2 nights in an oceanview room with plungepool. Oh my it was lovely! Firstly we were greeted at the small airfield and taken the short ride to the main house and our luggage was whisked away to our room. Emilie( GM) greeted us and took us into the Great Room for a refreshing drink and registration. The tranquil surroundings does wonders for any stress you may have brought with you - instant calm. Staff are everywhere it seems but you don't really notice them until you need something. It is a very relaxed atmosphere and guests are there just to chill it seems- quite rightly so! The main restaurant is closed at lunch and the evening meal was to take place at the Beach cafe( seperate review)on our first day, so it was suggested that we could try a local restaurant called The View - Bobson took us there and picked us up later. It's called the View for a reason( review done seperatlely) Our room was just lovely - they offer a free pressing and unpacking service upon arrival - very nice indeed. They also give you a beach bag with 2 nice beach towels in and flipflops - they have thought of most things. The views from our room....well you could have just stayed there for 2 days and dreamed away with your eyes open....On Saturday evening there were drinks in the Great Room where we met other guests and other islanders - so nice and welcoming! We walked mostly but there are Mules ( beach buggys) to hire should you wish. We went to Basils Bar of course as well ( seperate review) - so nice and welcoming again and of course Bobson took us and collected us:) We went swimming on Princess Margaret beach - take proper beach shoes to walk around there as it's just round the corner of another beach and you walk on rocks and it's a little slippery - once there ...you're on your own! Amazing! I'm happy to be contacted for any further information or photos - It was just a lovely stay! Naisha in particualr( seemed to be working everywhere) was such a delight to meet and talk to and she had our breakfast table ready as we arrived in the morning having seen us sauntering across the grass! Thank you. If you are in need of a bit of relaxed luxury this place is worth it!
