About The Messel Estate
The fully serviced Messel Estate sits within 11 acres on a ridge overlooking the ever-rolling beauty of the Caribbean.
At the heart of mature gardens, the stately main house was built in the 18th century and redesigned around 1970 by theatrical designer Oliver Messel. While the light and airy interiors retain their elegance and traditional charms, a more modern eye has created spaces that perfectly balance indoor and outdoor and flow seamlessly from one to the other.
There are seven divine suites, four in the main house, two in the plantation wing and one in the pavilion. Social areas are plentiful inside and out; terraces, courtyards and hidden nooks help you escape the sun or enjoy a quiet moment and provide the perfect places to dine al fresco on food prepared by esteemed chef on staff, Andy Taylor.
The gardens are the estate’s piece de resistance, originally designed by Todd Langstaffe-Gown, creator of the gardens of Hampton Court Palace. With a koi pond, towering mahogany trees and lagoon swimming pool set into the natural cliffs, they are a peaceful oasis made for exploring. Head to the treehouse-esque pool deck at twilight for drinks as the stars pop into the inky sky.
