YOUR ESCAPE

The islands of St Lucia and Mustique are incredibly picturesque and serene.

St Lucia is a tropical paradise. Rising 2,500 feet above sea-level the domineering and luscious Pitons are visible from almost everywhere on the island. Explore the diverse landscape and bird species across the island. Experience true Caribbean flavours at the Saturday market and fish for your own ‘catch of the day’.

Mustique, ‘the island of the rich and famous’ offers complete exclusivity and privacy, especially for some of the world’s most recognisable faces. Bryan Adams and Mick Jagger among others own homes on the island. The appeal, is that Mustique has kept its rustic charm. Instead of developing into another St Barths, it’s remained beautifully simple. Preserving the islands areas of natural beauty and minimising the environmental impact is a top priority, insofar as some roads are left as dirt tracks to reduce the footprint.
