At press time, Necker Island is working to recover from the devastating effects of Hurricane season. Plans to re-build are underway and our latest news can be found at http://www.virginlimitededition.com/en/necker-island.com. Guests can look forward to white sandy beaches, luxurious accommodation, watersports, top class food and the holiday of a lifetime.
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 favorite with royalty, rock stars, and movie stars, Necker Island is the ultimate private getaway in the Caribbean.
Necker Island provides you with the space and time to do just as you like… when you like. Escape to an unforgettable island happily out of step with the world. The ultimate all-inclusive private island tropical vacation resort.
Necker Island can be booked exclusively year-round. That’s just you plus 33 friends and family on your own private Caribbean island. One word of warning: once you’ve seen the world in Necker colours, you might not want to leave!
The Great House has a Master Suite with a sitting area, outdoor Jacuzzi, and a Victorian bathtub on the private terrace. In addition, there are 6 double rooms and one Junior Suite, each with a balcony (some shared), king-size beds with mosquito nets and en-suite bathrooms (without baths). Increasing the guest capacity to 28 people, the authentic cliff side Balinese houses Bali Hi, Bali Cliff and Bali Lo offer elegant villa accommodations with private pools, open-air lounges, and private dining areas. Bali Lo and Bali Buah and Bali Kukila are built in the middle of the island and boast wonderful panoramic views with a large private pool.
Fine food is the highlight of any guest’s stay and the team of chefs prepare food that Necker Island has become famous for, dining can be formal or informal, inside or outside, themed or traditional or a mixture of everything! Guests are encouraged to treat Necker like their own home. Dinner at the Great House is a revelation with a variety of themes to make each night unique. Meet at the bar for cocktails and head up to the roof terrace where dinner will be served while you watch the sun set.

Inspired by our sister property Kasbah Tamadot, our Moroccan night is a relaxed evening with a continuous flow of amazing dishes served either buffet or family style.
Necker has a huge collection of funky hats, glasses and accessories for guests to wear that will help transform your night into a disco party! Asking their guests to bring an outfit of your choice (many opt to coordinate disco night with Austin Powers costumes) to make this evening even more funky and fun. They set up a variety of coloured disco lights and let the tunes play until the last one goes to bed.
A party on Main Beach is a night to remember forever! They set up large speakers, disco lights, a cushion area for looking at the stars, and of course have a fully stocked bar to enjoy. Incorporate a fancy dress theme if you want to really go all out, or hire a band to play on the stage at the edge of the beach.
Perhaps you like the idea of meeting new and interesting people? Or maybe you’re scoping the island out for an exclusive booking in the future (it’s a tough job but someone’s got to do it!)… For any of these reasons and many more there are selected weeks throughout the year when you can just hire an individual room on Necker Island as a couple, individually or as a family for 7 night stays – we call these ‘Celebration Weeks’. During some weeks shorter stays are also available.
Necker Island is one of the world’s most secluded and romantic spots for newlywed couples and their specially designed ‘Celebration Weeks’ provide the perfect opportunity to escape. Celebration Weeks are normally held from August to October and couples can hire an individual room on the island for a 7-night stay.
Can you think of a better place to get married? We hope not, because Necker Island loves weddings! They’re used to all kinds of requests when it comes to weddings, and frequently work with neighbouring resorts to accommodate parties all the way up to 200 people. Each guest not staying on Necker Island will be charged a daily rate to cover food and drink.
Normal nightly accommodation rates will apply during your stay and a one-off wedding supplement will be added to these rates on the day of your ceremony depending on the option you choose.
Fly to Tortola, Virgin Gorda or St. Thomas. Transfer by boat or helicopter to the island.
