Virgin Group founder Richard Branson has opened his second private island to the public for the very first time. Located in the Caribbean.
Necker Island is spread over 74 acres with a circumference of 3 miles. Necker is undoubtedly the definition of a luxury party island, but our version of luxury is not just about inviting beds, top class food, latest activities and best amenities, though you can certainly expect all of these.
In the past it was called barefoot luxury, but the feeling we want to create when you arrive on the island, whether it’s your first time or your 15th, is one of coming home.
Bringing renewable energy to the picturesque island, Neckar is one of the most eco-friendly luxury resorts in the world.
The buildings capture cold thermal airflow, eliminating the need for air conditioners, and guests’ meals come from an organic garden, while beach buggies are powered by biofuels.
The Great House is a spacious al fresco style Balinese villa with amazing panoramic views of the Caribbean, Atlantic and neighboring islands.
Each of the Great House’s 8 guest rooms has a balcony, and all have king-size beds, most of which can be twinned, and en-suite bathrooms.
On the upper level you’ll find the full master suite with private outdoor Jacuzzi and outdoor bath.In addition, 6 beautiful private homes are built in authentic Balinese style and each can accommodate a couple.
There are several routes crossing the island. You can even walk all the way.
From the Great House it is a 6–7-minute walk to the main beach where most of the activities are based and where you will find the Beach House and the Crocodile Pavilion.
The place also provides great opportunities for adventure and fun for the guests. Apart from swimming and soaking in the sun, you can also take part in many exciting sporting activities such as snorkeling, water skiing and laser sailing. There are also tennis courts and snooker tables where you and your family can have fun.
You will also find libraries of all kinds such as video, book and music libraries. Necker Islands is the perfect place for a family vacation. You can have the entire island and a support staff at your disposal. You and your family will surely have a wonderful holiday at this beautiful place.
Richard has developed a passion for helping to preserve the endangered species of the Madagascan lemur. We currently have over 60 lemurs on the island of six different species including ring-tailed lemurs, three species of brown lemurs and two subspecies of ruffed lemurs. The lemurs are in enclosures around the beach house and tennis court so you can visit them every day.
