Virgin Limited Edition - BVI People and Development Director

Necker Island, Sir Richard Branson’s private island and home, is located in the Caribbean in the beautiful and unspoiled British Virgin Islands. Surrounded by turquoise waters, coral reefs and fringed by white sandy beaches; this is barefoot luxury in a setting that’s just about as exclusive as it gets!

The island is normally hired exclusively on an all-inclusive basis. It can also be shared with others during Celebration Weeks; these are held several times each year and allow guests to book individual rooms as opposed to hiring the entire island. Guests are encouraged to view the island as their home. The island provides extensive water sports activities as well as tennis courts with resident coach, gym and spa.
At the heart of the island is the Great House, a spacious al fresco style Balinese villa that boasts panoramic views of the Caribbean, the Atlantic and neighbouring islands. There’s nowhere better for socialising and the house hosts everything from intimate family dinners to unforgettable parties. Necker Island will welcome back its first guests to a newly restored Great House as early as October 2018, with further accommodation to reopen in 2019.

Just a short boat ride from Necker Island is Moskito Island, a private Island made up of nine exclusive three-acre lots. The Branson Estate on Moskito Island features three villas: Headland House, Mangrove Villa and Beach Villa. Headland House is solely residential and not available for rental however Mangrove Villa and Beach Villa may be booked as additional accommodation alongside Necker Island for Virgin Limited Edition guests.

The island has facilities and communal areas – a welcome area, tennis courts and a gym, a clubhouse with food and beverage service areas, pool as well as extensive communal grounds and gardens.
