The Cotton House gets a facelift

The Cotton House gets a facelift

In the heart of the Grenadine Islands, on the Island of Mustique, the Cotton House isn’t resting on its laurels. After the transformation of the one bedroom suites in 2010 with vibrant blues and yellows - the two bedroom residence & Duplex Suites in 2009 - 2011 has been the turn of the deluxe and superior seafront rooms.

In Grace Leo’s hands since 1998, the Cotton House, the only alternative to a private villa on Mustique Island, is a popular private paradise amongst the international rich and famous. A chic and relaxed destination, the Cotton House exudes modernity mixed with a British Colonial spirit.

What’s new at the Cotton House: a brighter and more colourful restaurant and more contemporary styled rooms.  In order to achieve these updates, G.L.A. Hotels used the expertise of interior designer Pascal Allaman.

The Veranda Restaurant ...
Located on the Great Room’s wraparound terrace, the Veranda Restaurant has undergone some changes. The wooden handmade chairs have been dressed with linen chair covers with coloured borders – these covers have been shortened to reveal the black legs, the prefect contrast to the white floor and table cloths.
Blue carpets have been added, giving the impression of several separate zones and framing the round tables and newly added rattan chairs – the dual style of contemporary rattan chairs and wooden artisanal chairs create a perfect marriage of new and old world.

White flowing curtains can transform sections of the restaurant into private zones for private parties and also romantic tête à tête dinners.


The restaurant offers the pleasures of a wine cellar like no other. A stainless steel and chrome plated “wine cellar”, with glass doors on both sides, offers guests a selection of wines from across the globe. Lit up at night, pleasing both to the eye and the taste buds, it can contain up to 400 bottles.

The Coutinot House…
The five rooms in this building overlooking the Caribbean, which is one of the original houses created by Oliver Messel, have been modernized. The beige and green shades have been replaced by two contemporary and luxurious styles based on Deep blue or Coral-red. The two-toned curtains, light coloured on top with dark coloured base line are in perfect harmony with the rooms’ walls, which recaptures the essence of the curtains.

There is still a colonial feel to the rooms, namely through the presence of pieces of furniture, such as the water lily shaped coffee table & the rattan armchairs with red ikat fabrics in the blue bedrooms and blue in the red bedrooms… The beds are dressed with modern print decorative plaids and cushions and a new addition is white bed-heads with built in adjustable reading lights inside the mosquito nets, no more leaning out to switch off the bedside lamp. New simple design bedside tables with tripod bronze coloured metal legs complement the full length bench at the foot of the bed.

Ipod docking stations and satellite televisions with DVD players in all the rooms, as well as personal ipod for every guest, assists the Cotton House giving you everything you need for a relaxing Caribbean break.
