The Private Island of Mustique Announces New “Villa Honeymoon Collection”

The exclusive island of Mustique has long been considered one of the Caribbean’s most romantic destinations, and this year, the love is certainly in the air as the island unveils their new Villa Honeymoon Collection.

Scattered along this 1,400-acre private island paradise in the Grenadines are 72 designer villas, each with its own distinctive architecture and atmosphere. Newlyweds seeking their dream honeymoon can opt for one of the 12 two-bedroom villas and cottages now part of the Villa Honeymoon Collection: Aurora’s “Jasmine Cottage,” Bali Hai, Blue Waters, Heron Bay, Shogun’s “Little Shogun,” Moana, Rocina, Samambaia, Seastar, Serenity Bay, Simplicity and Sunrise’s “Beach Cottage.” Each villa is set in spacious, landscaped grounds with private terraces, fresh-water swimming pools and spectacular views of the crystal Caribbean Sea or Atlantic Ocean.

When booking a stay at one of the villas in the Honeymoon Collection, guests can enjoy a special complimentary in-villa couples massage or dinner for two at Veranda Restaurant at the Cotton House, the island’s only resort. The island promises an incredible list of romantic offerings including deserted picnics on the world-famous Macaroni Beach, night-time dives together under the stars, sunset cruises, horseback riding trails on the beach and moonlit walks on sandy grounds of Pasture Beach where you might bump into a leather back turtle laying eggs. Honeymooners can also head over to Basil’s Bar & Restaurant, the island’s infamous open-air, thatched roof beach bar that serves up cocktail favorites like the ginger-infused “Mustique Mule.”

Villa Honeymoon Collection rentals are available from May 1-July 15, 2010 and August 15-December 15, 2010 for a minimum seven-night stay with rates from $7,000 to $10,000 per week, plus 18% tax. As an added bonus, complimentary flight transfers between Barbados and Mustique are offered to guests who stay for a minimum of two weeks. Each villa has its own dedicated staff (minimum of three, and the majority have butlers, chefs and/or house managers) and the use of one vehicle.  Factor in other perks such as a weekly cocktail party hosted by the Mustique Company, complimentary services such as laundry, tennis courts and weekly movie nights.
