Necker Island, Sir Richard Branson's private retreat in the British Virgin Islands. Necker Island lies between Tortola and Anegada. This delightful hideaway is one of the most idyllic places in all the Caribbean.

Sir Richard Branson purchased Necker Island (around 74 acres) more than 25 years ago. Previously uninhabited, Necker has now been developed into a superb private hideaway, now with several buildings including the Great House, five Balinese villas, a spa, several fine beaches and a beach pavilion.
Necker Island has an extensive private staff providing a luxury service for movie and rock stars as well as the very wealthy. Necker can accommodate up to 28 guests and can be booked as a complete private package, or for certain weeks of the year the villas and rooms can be rented individually.

The Great House on the top of Devils Hill is situated on the highest ground on Necker Island. The house has eight luxury bedrooms, each one featuring it's own balcony, four poster bed and en-suite bathroom.


Necker Island Resort

Necker is one of three well known private resort islands in the BVI. The other two are Peter Island Resort and Guana Island. Sir Richard Branson purchased the neighbouring island of Moskito early in 2007 for a reported 10 million. Moskito is just over a mile from Necker and his plans include turning Moskito Island into a luxury eco friendly resort with Balinese style villas similar to those on Necker Island. No doubt the name will have to change (it is named after the Moskito Indians not the insects and is often wrongly spelt as "Mosquito Island").
