Firefly HotelMustique St. Vincent & Grenadines,
The Firefly, probably Mustique’s best kept secret on this privately owned and exclusive island, is truly unique having been built in the early seventies as a private villa and recently transformed into one of the Caribbean’s most exclusive hideaways.
The Firefly is perched on a hill with magnificent views of the Caribbean Sea and neighboring tropical islands fading to the horizon. It affords the most wonderful sunset scenes from all rooms including the dining terrace and bar lounge area, which is complete with a Grand Piano and comfortable areas to enjoy a cocktail or meet old friends. Mustique is probably the one remaining Caribbean island free of hassle and hustle, no beggars, no beach or street vendors, no unemployment, no casinos, high rise hotels, night clubs, disco’s or golf courses and a 20 m.p.h. speed limit for the few cars on the island.
There is a fine stable of thoroughbred horses for that sunset gallop along the beach, wonderful hiking and nature trails, sailing, scuba diving, snorkeling, water sports and tennis. Mustique enjoys a warm climate, with an average temperature range of 75 to 85 degrees (24 to 29c) throughout the year.
Any time of the year is wonderful here. There is no “out of season”, being far enough south to avoid hurricanes. Some of the best times to be here are the summer months of June, July & August when all our beautiful flora is in full bloom. Mustique is essentially composed of seven valleys each with a deserted white sand beach fringed by palm and coconut trees surrounded by a series of coral reefs.
Whilst famous for its “celebrity” home owners, it is truly an island paradise, one that will make you return again & again. For those seeking some relief from the tranquility of Mustique we can arrange sailing trips to nearby islands, and other excursions to see some of the natural beauty of the Grenadines.
With a 7 night minimum stay at regular room rates – we offer complimentary flights to and from Barbados and Mustique (value US $420 per person). Complimentary French Champagne and flowers in your room on arrival. Complimentary “Champagne Picnic” set up and served in a private beach cabana on your favourite deserted beach. Also use of the “Club Caribbean Executive Lounge” at Barbados Airport on your return journey.
Simon & I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone at the Firefly for helping to make our honeymoon so special. The guys did everything possible to make sure we had a great time and everyone we met there was fantastic company (apologies to Patrick and the team for the late night, Martini induced, Anglo-American rowdiness!!). The Firefly really is Mustique’s best kept secret and we hope that it stays that way. Hope to see you all again soon.
Jo & Simon. (January 2005)
