The Cotton House Hotel

The Cotton House is open. To book please get in touch with the team at or call +1 784 456 4777.

Originally an old cotton warehouse, the hotel was the first building project to be undertaken on the island. It was designed in 1968 by Oliver Messel, a leading British theatre stage designer, who had developed a reputation for the flamboyant and original houses he had designed on neighbouring Barbados. It soon became a landmark destination in the Caribbean and the island community’s social hub.

The hotel has been recently refurbished by the award winning Parisian architect Tristan Auer, undergoing a sympathetic restoration of Messel’s style, maintaining the original features to conserve the hotel’s charm and character.

Set amongst thirteen expansive acres of tropical gardens leading down to Endeavour Bay, the Great Room Bar and Veranda Restaurant lie at the heart of the estate, surrounded by luxurious, garden and sea facing villas, suites and cottages with private verandas and plunge pools.

Facilities include a central swimming pool and sundeck, and an organic Spa & Gym located in the gardens, a short walk from the beach. The shoreside Beach Cafe & Bar offers all day refreshments whilst the island’s Watersports Centre offers a comprehensive range of activities for all ages.

Suites & Cottages

The Cotton House has a collection of fifteen luxurious suites and cottages with private verandas and plunge pools, set in the tropical gardens of the estate.  Each room is individually furnished with four poster beds draped with billowing white muslin nets, traditional rattan chairs and elegant objets d’art, whilst luxurious bed linen ensures a restful night’s sleep.

With the suites and cottages spaciously situated through the hotel’s extensive grounds guests are assured of complete privacy, and yet the beach and the restaurants are still just a few minute’s walk away.
