Necker Island


‘Sir Richard Branson’s Private Island’

An idyllic private island owned by Sir Richard Branson, a chic playground for the rich and the famous in the British Virgin Islands. At 74 acres, the island sits within crystalline waters, surrounded by kaleidoscopic coral reefs and lined with white, palm-fringed sands. The island may be hired out for your exclusive use, sleeping up to 48 guests across 24 rooms. Accommodation on Necker Island includes bedrooms in the Great House and individual Bali Houses dotted around the island. Individual rooms may be booked in part for couples or families during the special Celebration Weeks which are available across selected dates throughout the year. With an abundance of land and water activities, you may wish to try sailing, water-skiing or paddle boarding, play tennis with a professional, or embark on one of the wildlife and walking trails. 

In Our Opinion

‘In terms of privacy, charm, and enviable luxury, Necker Island leads the way. You’ll find a perfectly run ship here, where the small team of staff ensure every aspect of your Necker experience lives up to the reputation it has come to acquire!’
