Surrounded by the sparkling blue Caribbean sea of the British Virgin Islands, Necker Island exudes the elegance and lifestyle of the rich and famous. You can “rent” the whole island for yourself and your guests, staying in the Balinese style houses with your own pool and never-ending views to the sea. Virgin Atlantic owner Richard Branson purchased this previously uninhabited island between Tortola and Anegada in the late seventies. He has slowly developed several residences in addition to the main house, an airy Balinese Villa. A favourite with royalty, rock stars, and movie stars, Necker Island is the ultimate private getaway in the Caribbean.
