British Virgin Islands Villas

What is it that most of us are craving after a year of pandemic lockdown? I’m anxious to get back into the magical world of travel, in small steps, even though I’ve luckily received both vaccines, little steps back to feel secure and safe. Private islands, private Villas within hotel properties or a yacht charter should be a considered path.

Soft white sandy beaches, clear waters, palm trees and lush vegetation. All of this awaits you in the BVI. There’s a reason that this has been the playground of the rich and famous for decades. Our exclusive Villa team recently traveled to the British Virgin Islands, it felt enormously safe with their excellent protocols and testing. A 5-day quarantine flew by and was barely even a blip as they able to completely enjoy the beautiful facilities: Beaches, water-sports, outdoor dining and more. Covid Protocols change day by day.

NECKER ISLAND – An amazing escape awaits at the unparalleled Necker Island. Sir Richard Branson’s home and one of his favorite hideaways. The Island is so beyond what one gathers from the photos and has an outstanding staff who ensure your every need is met. Not everyone can or needs to rent the whole island for 34, thus they also have celebration weeks when the island is opened to individual guests starting from $5150 per bedroom, per night & all-inclusive. Bring your family or a gaggle of pals and enjoy a private room or compound.

Necker Island is Sir Richard Branson’s home and one of his favorite hideaways. He first purchased the 74-acre island in 1978 and it opened as a luxury retreat available for private hire in 1984. The Island is rented privately for up to 34 guests who are outnumbered by a team of over 100 fabulous staff on island who insure that every need is met, providing first class service.

Options include a stunning ten-bedroom main house and three separate Balinese houses, all have sweeping ocean views. The Main House is the center of casual social activity and includes indoor and outdoor dining areas, handsome Balinese-style interiors for lounging and reading, and a game area with a full-size snooker table and the latest table games. Each of the 8 guest rooms in the main house has terrace views over neighboring islands and ocean and the Master suite has a Jacuzzi and large private terrace with panoramic views. The living areas are large, and light illuminated by vast skylights. Wide louvered windows open to the ocean breezes. A raised gallery overlooks an interior garden of lush tropical vegetation.

Six additional Balinese villas dotted around the island house 6 more private guest rooms with romantic views and two small shared pools. In addition to the floodlit tennis courts, there are myriad water sports available to the guests including sailing, water skiing, wind surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving & fishing.

The new beach pavilion offers a dining area as well as a Beach pool with a waterfall and swim up bar. Of course, there are also the fabulous sand beaches for just relaxing in the sun and the incredible turquoise water that makes the BVI’s the pearls of the Caribbean. For those who wish to explore a bit, Virgin Gorda is just a 10-15-minute boat ride away.

This is a luscious and luxurious retreat for friends and family to get away from it all or to celebrate a special occasion. A favorite with royalty, rock stars, and movie stars, Necker Island is the ultimate private tropical vacation getaway in the Caribbean.
