Over the course of the year we will be featuring many of the personalities and characters that help to make Mustique the laid-back paradise that it is. So many of the people who live and work on the island are the reason why guests return year after year. We start with Jerrol John, chef at Sienna, who trained at the Institute of Hospitality in Barbados and whose skills and flavour combinations have evolved on Mustique and continue to delight guests to this Italian-inspired villa.
