Daily Pampering: Vacationing on your own private Caribbean island

Welcome to Mustique, a 1,400-acre private island in the Grenadines established with the most discriminating travelers in mind. If the typical Caribbean resorts just won’t do, rent yourself the island and enjoy a vacation catered, quite literally, to you. There are 72 designer villas on Mustique ranging in size from two to nine bedrooms and each feature different interior designs and views of the island. You’ll have access to your own on-island restaurant, bar, spa, and concierge service.

Getting to the island is nothing short of luxurious. Take a flight to Barbados, then board the Mustique Company’s privately-owned 18 seat Twin Otter aircraft, which flies you directly to the island.

Each villa is available for weekly rentals that range in price from $4,250 to $150,000 a week, including a full staff and golf cart-type vehicle to get you around the island.
