We paid 1,625 per night (half board) for a small room with a small plunge pool.... Otherwise nice place, fun beach restaurant, nice main house, very good service and ok food. Beach nice to look at but not good for swimming: to many rocks to go in. Go and have drinks and dinner at Firefly: cool restaurant on top of...

GMCottonHouse, General Manager at The Cotton House, responded to this review

Dear Fergus and Lady-Anne, Sorry to hear of your disappointment with the Cotton House after being such regular guests of ours. The increase in rate for the next year is due, as we discussed prior to your departure, to extensive renovations planned for the rooms this coming Autumn. The food offering is always a matter of taste as we do...

My wife is a vicar and is always exhausted after Christmas. Last year we went to Mustique for a recuperative holiday and we both loved it. We went back this year and have already booked for next January. It is a beautiful, restful place with lovely and helpful staff and a great climate. The Cotton House hotel is wonderful and...

Staff was amazing!!!! I will definitely be back in Mustique Island, Mustique and will definitely stay at the cotton house again. It was absolutely stunning place to spend my trip there. All the staff there made it very fun and exciting.

After many years visiting Mustique, I was quite surprised by the new and improved menu at Cotton House this December. Every meal thus far has exceeded expectations. The sushi is an excellent addition to the menu along with new tasting menus. The chef seems to be preparing delectable dishes while maintaining beautiful presentation. It is quite a noticeable change from...

The hotel is in a beautiful location and the staff are mostly friendly and polite. Our first dinner was a disaster however. I ordered sushi as a starter which took over an hour to arrive and when it did it looked like a child had made it. Worst still the rice was warm and very salty making it inedible. For...

We are return guests. Loved our previous stay. Our experience this time: MINUSES: 1. Very disappointing food. Had to have several discussions with the chef Elliot in order for him to provide food that we could actually enjoy. Even so, dinner was never something we particularly looked forward to, which contributed to our sense of boredom after a few days....

Flying into Mustique, on prop planes, you feel as though you are leaving all the 21st C can throw at you,...behind. Whether it is the stunning scenery all around, or the welcome drinks with the manager in the spectacular great room -Mustique welcomes you.

I knew we were arriving somewhere special from the moment the plane started its descent into Mustique. The Cotton House is truly a wonderful experience and the people who work in and around the hotel deliver first class service. The food, beach, bedrooms all delivered beyond our expectations - well done and thank you to Jacques and all the team.

Right from arrival at airport, it was an experience to remember, the pick up, the check in, the welcome drinks were an absolute delight.

After room orientation, amongst other things offered us unpackaging...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
