Necker Island

Necker Island, a Caribbean private island resort owned by Virgin conglomerate founder Sir Richard Branson, has evolved rapidly since he acquired it in 1982. In addition to importing a variety of flora and fauna, Branson added a desalinization plant and developed a compound of Balinese-style structures on the island. In 2005, two cottages were added, Bali Beach and Bali Buah, which offer individual rooms on a weekly basis at certain times during the year. Accommodations The nine-bedroom Great House and five Balinese cottages host a maximum of 28 people. The island typically rents to a single group. Recreation Snorkeling, tennis, swimming, sailing, waterskiing, sea kayaking, windsurfing, kite surfing, and beach volleyball. Dining Chef Craig Harnden, who arrived in August 2006, combines Asian and Caribbean flavors in his cuisine. Worthy Diversion Yacht charters, diving, visits to nearby islands, fireworks displays, and live entertainment can be arranged for additional fees. Rates Booking the entire island costs $46,000 per night for a party of as many as 28. Individual rooms are available at specific times throughout the year, starting at a weekly rate of $22,500 per couple.
