Know Before You Go...
Arrange for a helicopter transfer to take you to Necker Island and enjoy absolute privacy in a vacation on your own island, or enjoy all of the fun and excitement of Necker Island during the Celebration weeks. The staff, a total of over one-hundred people, will ensure that your meals are ready and prepared to your tastes, and in the meantime, you can enjoy any of the islands several beaches. Spend a day playing tennis, or swimming in one of the freshwater infinity pools, and for special moments, theres a private gazebo. When it comes time to gather everyone together, the formal dining room seats 34.
Not ready to reserve the entire island, there are select weeks throughout the year when you can reserve an individual room on Necker Island as a couple, individually or as a family for 7 night stays - we call these "Celebration Weeks".
Do not worry, if you are the shy type, the island is 74 acres so there is plenty of space for some quiet sunbathing or relaxing in one of the hot tubs.
During Celebration Weeks there's no particular schedule, and you can do as little or as much as you like. Every morning the team of staff will find out what everyone is interested in doing and will arrange activities accordingly. Some people may choose to go sailing while others brush up on their tennis skills with the resident professional. Or you could find a private spot on a beach or by a pool and spend the day doing absolutely nothing!
Meals are generally taken together in a variety of locations around the island, however if you wish to dine privately one evening the staff can make all the necessary arrangements.
Surrounded by the Caribbean sea of the British Virgin Islands, Necker Island exudes the lifestyle of the rich and famous. You can "rent" the whole island for yourself and your guests, staying in the cliff-side villas with your own pool and never-ending views to the sea. Virgin Atlantic owner, Sir Richard Branson, purchased this previously uninhabited island between Tortola and Anegada in the '70s. He has slowly developed several residences in addition to the main house, an airy Balinese Villa. A favorite with royalty, rock stars, and movie stars, Necker Island is the ultimate private getaway in the Caribbean.
The ten-bedroom main house has a master bedroom with a sitting area, Jacuzzi, and a Victorian bathtub on the private terrace. A great place to soak and watch the sunset. Nine bedrooms with either king or twin beds have private bathrooms and balconies. International furnishings complete the quality lifestyle here, with woods and fabrics almost as terrific as the views from every room.
The staff outnumbers the guests here, providing first-class service and catering to your every whim. Enjoy a tropical drink in the indoor garden, or on one of the terraces overlooking the British Virgin Islands only a few minutes away by helicopter or boat. Meals are as informal or formal as you desire, and at the pace, time, and location of your choosing. Your staff can prepare a light lobster lunch with fresh fruit served in the shade of the pagoda, at the beach pool's floating dining pavilion, or a more formal affair in the 30+-seat dining room with silver, lace, linen, and crystal place settings. Meal service can be arranged anywhere on the island and the cuisine is yours to decide. Pamper yourself and absorb the enchanting feel of Necker Island.
Private white sandy beaches wouldn't be complete without laser sailing, snorkeling, and water-skiing. Two lighted tennis courts, a gym, video, book, and music library; the snooker table and board games are just some of the things to do here when you're not soaking up the sun, relaxing, or enjoying meals and beverages.
Necker Island provides you with the space and time to do just as you like...when you like, escape to an unforgettable island happily out of step with the world. The ultimate all-inclusive private island resort.
