Mustique’s Newest Luxury

Villas: Mustique’s Newest Luxury
Courtesy The Mustique Company

Long a favored haunt of triple-A-list celebrities (Prince William and Kate Middleton among them), the island of Mustique is home to some of the Caribbean’s most sumptuous rental properties. Seventy-four independently designed villas are scattered across the island’s 1,400 acres, most of them ranging from barefoot luxe to outrageously opulent. In January, two new villas—which definitely belong to the latter category—were made available to guests for the first time. Sienna, an Italianate five-bedroom manse with views over Macaroni Beach and Pasture Bay, is surrounded by tropical gardens, statuary, and bubbling fountains (and comes equipped with a staff of five; rates start at $30,000 per week). The four-bedroom Tanama, set in the island’s Endeavour foothills, has a 48-foot-long pool with sun loungers and a pavilion for entertaining (rates start at $10,000 per week). Both are clearly fit for a (future) king.
