It was Lord Glenconner who had the big idea: to turn Mustique, a private island in St Vincent and the Grenadines, into a place for only the truly discerning (including a couple of rock stars and British royalty whom he counted among his friends). And so he began to build a collection of luxury Mustique villas, whilst preserving the island's nine perfect beaches for this small coterie to enjoy.
Now with 74 Mustique villas available to rent, Mustique has lost none of its original cachet; you still see familiar faces propping up Basil's Bar. At Red Savannah, however, we have worked hard to understand which staff, which configurations, which interior style or pool will provide the best Mustique villa for you. With a health spa, scuba-diving facility, equestrian centre and tennis club, there's plenty to do. But most of all, there is an easy, relaxed 'house party' style that is all Mustique's own, where women can hang out in flip-flops or heels, kaftans or couture, their children asleep in hammocks or larking about with siblings in the surf. On Mustique, anything goes. Enjoy the complete privacy of a luxury Mustique villa - there are no paparazzi cameras here - or make new friends around a pool party, rosé in hand.
