Necker Island Surrounded by the sparkling blue Caribbean Sea of the British Virgin Islands, Necker Island exudes the elegance and lifestyle of the rich and famous. You can "rent" the whole island for yourself and your guests, staying in one of the Balinese style houses with your own pool and neverending views to the sea. Virgin Atlantic owner Sir Richard Branson purchased this previously uninhabited island between Tortola and Anegada in the late seventies. He has slowly developed several residences in addition to the main house, an airy Balinese Villa. A favorite with royalty, rock stars and movie stars, Necker Island is the ultimate private getaway in the Caribbean. "It was the brightest jewel I’ve ever found." "My home and favorite hideaway." Sir Richard Branson

The Great House has a Master Suite with a sitting area, outdoor Jacuzzi, and a Victorian bathtub on the private terrace. In addition, there are 6 double rooms and one Junior Suite, each with a balcony (some shared), king-size beds with mosquito nets and en-suite bathrooms (without baths). Increasing the guest capacity to 28 people, the authentic cliff side Balinese houses Bali Hi, Bali Cliff and Bali Lo offer elegant villa accommodation with private pools, open-air lounges, and private dining areas. Bali Lo, Bali Buah and Bali Kukila are built in the middle of the island and boast wonderful panoramic views with a large private pool. Dining: Fine food is the highlight of any guest’s stay and the team of chefs prepare food for which Necker Island has become famous. Dining can be formal or informal, inside or outside, themed or traditional or a mixture of everything! Guests are encouraged to treat Necker like their own home and are therefore most welcome to help themselves to anything they want at any time.

Rates: From USD 53,000 per night for the whole island for up to 28 guests. Inclusive of all meals and drinks (including all alcoholic beverages and champagne). Return launch transfers from Virgin Gorda or Tortola (Beef Island) airports are also included. There is a team of approximately 60 staff. Activities: Swimming, tennis (flood-lit courts), windsurfing, kitesurfing, diving, fishing, sailing, hiking, waterskiing, kayaking, power boat trips, fitness, billiards, darts. A piano, library, board games for the family and toys for children are all at your disposal. Activities such as treasure hunts or beach Olympics can be arranged. Whilst staying at Necker Island, there is also the possibility to hire Necker Nymph, which is a 3-person aero-submarine. Bali Leha Spa Leha Leha is the Balinese way of describing peace, relaxation and daydreaming, and there is no better place to do this than at the Necker Island Spa. Bali Leha is built into a cliff overlooking the sea just a short walk from the Great House. Enjoy the gentle sounds of the sea while you experience their fabulous range of treatments. Using Gerard’s skincare range which is exclusive to Necker Island, the treatments follow a natural, holistic and Ayurvedic approach that enhances emotion and well-being from within. The traditional Balinese treatments offered are designed to complement the Spa’s surroundings. "The ultimate private island escape just keeps getting better."
