For the uber-well-heeled traveler, a visit to private Necker Island, British Virgin Islands, owned by Sir Richard Branson—founder of the Virgin Group brand—is paradise on earth. The resort has a maximum 28-person capacity and rents the entire island by the week, starting at US$322,000. Individual rooms are available for three-, four- or seven-night stays during specified "Celebration Weeks." https://www.virginlimitededition.com/en/necker-island/offers/celebration-weeks.
Celebrities, royalty and those with mega-high net worth have flocked there as a retreat. The 74-acre/30-hectare island is located north of Virgin Gorda's northernmost tip. It has two high-end, Balinese-style lodging options: the Great House and Bali House. Both provide incredible views of the ocean.
Visitors to this private island will enjoy activities such as tennis, sailing, snorkeling or kitesurfing, as well as the opportunity to enjoy a day on the beach or at the spa. Dining is undoubtedly an unforgettable and unique experience as top chefs prepare cuisine especially for guests, as well as set up beach barbecues on Turtle Beach or serve sushi and other delights poolside.
Necker Island is accessible by plane via connection from San Juan, Puerto Rico; St. Thomas, Barbados; or Antigua to Beef Island, Tortola, where you catch a 30-minute private boat transfer. The island is also accessible by helicopter.
