Sir Richard Branson’s paradise in the British Virgin Islands would be the perfect choice for those who are considering their first private island holiday. Branson purchased Necker Island back in 1978 and has transformed the forsaken landscape over the years, turning it into one of the world’s’ most well-known and admired island retreats. The 74-acre Caribbean paradise is available to rent exclusively and makes for a fantastic base for all kinds of adventures. It can accommodate up to 40 adults and 6 children and has over 70 full-time staff providing round-the-clock service to guests.
From multi-generational family holidays to corporate escapes, Necker’s team can tailor any experience for the guests. It’s also possible to book individual rooms during ‘Celebration Weeks’ throughout the year. This is unique when it comes to luxury Island and makes it an excellent option for a honeymoon, proposal, or anniversary escape.
There are an array of things to do on the island; home to a number of exotic wildlife animals one can fully immerse themselves in the nature around them. There are sandy beaches to rest under the sun by day, and take in a nice hot tub soak by night, as well as water sports available from kite-surfing to snorkelling to scuba diving to satisfy the needs of an entire family.
