Richard Branson’s legendary British Virgin Islands resort is back in business as they posted on their website recently. “Welcome back! It’s been an incredible journey since Hurricane Irma last year to restore Necker Island and reopen our home to guests, they said.”
Following months of post-Irma construction and refurbishment, Necker re-opened in October. Highlights are a completely rebuilt and restored Great House with two brand new rooms and an additional Balinese style house; Leha Lo. Other highlights include beautiful new tennis courts and a watersports centre offering activities from kitesurfing to Hobie Cat racing, kayaking to snorkeling.
Sir Richard Branson’s 74-acre private island is unquestionably the most idyllic place in the British Virgin Islands. First purchased by Richard in 1978, Necker Island is much more than the sum of its individual parts. This is the definition of a luxury private island, but their version of luxury isn’t just about top class food, the latest activities and the best facilities, although you can of course expect all of these. Visitors to the island often arrive as guests but leave as friends. You can take the island exclusively or during selected weeks you can book an individual room.
