Many years ago, Sir Richard Branson saw Necker Island and thought it was the most beautiful place he had ever seen. A year later, Branson purchased that island. Necker Island is now one of the world’s most exclusive private islands and is part of the Virgin Limited Edition, Branson’s portfolio of stunning, luxury retreats and hotels around the world.
While the entire island can be rented out exclusively for groups of up to 30 people, for a few select weeks throughout the year, it is possible to book separate rooms and enjoy this gorgeous island paradise with other exclusive guests.
The 74-acre island is nestled in the turquoise waters of the Caribbean and is surrounded by spectacular coral reefs and white sandy beaches. The property boasts many luxurious pools, a large beachfront Jacuzzi and tennis courts.
Necker also offers a wide range of water activities, including an aqua trampoline, snorkeling, fishing, kite-surfing, sailing, windsurfing, waterskiing, kayaking, power-boating and many more. For the most adventurous guests, Necker Island now has the Necker Nymph, the world’s-first 3-person aero submarine. In the Necker Nymph, two passengers and a trained pilot can travel in the submarine down as deep as 100 feet below the surface of the sea to see the stunning marine life that Necker Island has to offer.
At the Bali Leha Spa & Gym, which has incredible ocean views, guests can workout in the state-of-the art gym and enjoy one of the many relaxing aromatherapy spa treatments. No private island is complete without the finest food and drinks; Necker Island is famous for its over-the-top drinks and gourmet food prepared by Michelin-trained chefs.
How to visit Necker Island:
Located in the eastern section of the British Virgin Islands, Necker Island is best reached by private jet charter flown to either Beef Island or Virgin Gorda, and then a short transfer by boat or helicopter to Necker.
To rent out the entire island, we suggest flying in a Boeing Business Jet. If you plan on visiting with your significant other or immediate family, we suggest charter a heavy jet like the Challenger 604.
