Necker Island, BVIs
A private island like no other, Necker Island enjoys an idyllic setting surrounded by turquoise waters and unspoilt coral reefs. This is also where Sir Richard Branson calls home and it won’t take long for you to realise why! The island can be hired exclusively for groups of up to 34 people, or if you’re not looking to hire it exclusively you can still enjoy the Necker experience by taking a room as a couple, individual or family for a 7-night stay during selected weeks throughout the year called ‘Celebration Weeks’.
Accommodation on Necker Island includes eight bedrooms in the Great House and eight individual houses dotted around the island. There is also a bunkroom in the Great House that sleeps up to six children. Each of the guest rooms in the Great House have amazing panoramic views and the Master Suite also has an outdoor Jacuzzi. The six Bali Houses are located either on the cliff or in the middle of the island, in groups of 3 with a shared pool. Love Temple is a very private with an open air bathroom and its own lawn terrace. Finally there’s Temple House which was built to Sir Richard’s standards and boasts a spectacular infinity pool.
Dining can be formal or informal, inside or al fresco. Guests are encouraged to treat Necker like their own home so you are welcome to help yourself to anything you want, any time. You will experience a variety of dining experience in different locations during your stay. Make sure you don’t miss out on Necker’s famous floating sushi bar in the pool! Necker is also famous for its legendary parties – you could enjoy a Casino Night, Moroccan Night, Beach Party or a funky Disco Fever night. And remember what happens on Necker, stays on Necker!
There are 2 Balinese spa treatment rooms in an incredible setting using Aromatherapy Associates products. Choose from a range of treatments, all charged additionally. Pilates classes can be arranges at various locations on the island, we would particularly recommend a sunset class.
Here at Necker there’s no shortage of activities. The island covers 74 acres so there are many walking trails to enjoy, either with a guide or on your own with a map. You can discover some fantastic wildlife including lemurs, flamingos, giant tortoises and iguanas. There are 2 floodlit tennis courts and a resident tennis pro who is available at all times for lessons or simply to play against if you are up for the challenge. As you would expect, there’s a plethora of watersports available including kitesurfing, waterskiing, sailing, windsurfing and paddleboarding. Snorkels & masks are provided in each room and you can be fitted for fins at the beach. You can enjoy excellent snorkelling from the island or you can venture further afield in one of the boats. Scuba diving is also possible including wreck, reef and night dives.
Necker is the perfect place for a romantic honeymoon in paradise. Almost anything can be arranged to help you to celebrate such romantic dinners and fireworks on the beach. Weddings are also a speciality and groups of up to 200 people can be catered for.
Sir Richard Branson designed Necker Island to be his family’s holiday home and his own children spent almost all of their school holidays there when they were growing up. There are plenty of things for children to do, from treasure hunts to feeding the lemurs to pirate parties on the beach. Kids can stay in the Bunk Room at the Great House which is full of toys, books and games. Cots, baby baths and other essentials are available on request. Babysitting is provided at an additional cost.
