Mustique, Now That’s Chic

Mustique Island... Bareback, baby!

Bareback and in a bikini. Tell you, tell me! I’m ready for my Mustique vacay.

Luckily, the private, ultra-exclusive
island of Mustique is offering a ‘Summer Sizzler’ package you won’t want to miss.

A small private island in the West Indies, Mustique is actually a group of islands called the Grenadines (most of which form part of the country of St Vincent and the Grenadines). Attracting a number of celebrities (just like you), the big dogs who’ve visited include: Bill Gates, Mick Jagger, David Bowie, Kate Middleton, Prince William, Pierce Brosnan, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip. So clearly, you’re next.

The island is petite and discrete; covering 1,400 acres with several coral reefs, tortoises, herons, and a year-round population of only about 500 living in the villages of Lovell, Britannia Bay, and Dover. And, the good news is this right here… starting right now through September 4, 2010 (maybe they’ll even extend it a bit if you say you saw it here first), book a room at the Cotton House, the island’s only hotel, and receive 2 nights free, plus up to a $500 hotel credit to use on luxe amenities like a spa treatment or dinner at Veranda Restaurant. The ‘Summer Sizzler’ package includes:

* Stay 7-nights, only pay for 5-nights  get 2 nights for free!
* $500 hotel credit for double-occupancy or $250 resort credit for
single-occupancy
* Daily breakfast
* Airport transfers to/from hotel
* Welcome cocktail

The starting rates for this offer are $520 per night for a cottage at single
or double-occupancy. Rates are exclusive of a 10% service tax, subject to
availability and require a seven-day cancelation policy for full refund.

Mustique's Luxurious Cotton Island Hotel

A little bit about Mustique:

A renowned 1,400-acre private island in the Grenadines and long favorite hideaway for the world’s most discriminating travelers.

Scattered around the island are 72 super swanky, yet island dreamy designer villas, each with its own distinctive architecture and atmosphere. Available for weekly rentals, these villas range in size from 2 to 9 bedrooms from $4,250 to $150,000 a week, including a full staff and vehicle.

The only hotel on the island, the Cotton House is an elegant West Indian-style plantation estate with 17 luxe rooms, cottages and suites, 11 of which feature private plunge pools.
