Early summer is best time for discovering some new exotic destinations. This time it is about Caribbean Island – Mustique. This 1,400-acre island favored by celebrities and tycoons for its exclusivity and privacy, has so much to offer. Most striking is Shogun – Japanese themed private complex, formed by a series of villas clustered around a central Koi pond and flanked by an inviting crescent swimming pool. Selected by Michelle Higgins in “The New York Times” as one of the 7 most luxurious villa’s in the Carribean, Shogun enjoys dramatic sunset views toward the sea and neighboring islands.
Situated on five acres of grounds and 300′ above Britannia Bay, Shogun is comprised of: the Main House, Little Shogun and Traveller’s Tree Cottage. In total Shogun has 9 fully Air Conditioned and En Suite bedrooms available for guests (1 to 18). The Main House consists of five en-suite bedrooms, while an adjacent two-bedroom cottage, complete with a second swimming pool, sitting room, courtyard and kitchen, is thoughtfully referred to as ‘Little Shogun’. Additionally, the Travellers Tree Cottages consist of two further en-suite bedrooms. Fortunate guests will also enjoy the villa`s private 1-hole, 9-tee golf course set within a landscaped tropical garden.
If you decide to spend couple of days there, you’ll find a complimentary dinner cooked by Executive Chef John Grant. Weekly, you will be invited by director of the resort to a to a cocktail party at The Cotton House Hotel for an intimate taste of island hospitality. During stay, you can enjoy in many activities and excursions planned by the resort’s excellent staff, including bird watching trips, day ventures to Britannia Bay, local sporting events, or tickets to the annual Blues Festival. In addition, you can relax in spa treatments at The Cotton House Spa on Endeavor Bay, sailing, swimming on any of Mustique’s nine beaches, and open-air movies beneath the stars.
With many options, Shogun can be rented either with just the main residence or the addition of one or both of the two separate cottages. Depending of season and the number of guests, prices range from $2,430 per night to $5,715 per night. [Shogun House]
