Dreaming of a tropical beach vacation? Why settle for a beach side hotel when you can secure much more secluded accommodations for your getaway? If you really want to do your Caribbean vacation in a true haute style, how about renting a private island for yourself and your guests to frolic freely! Thanks to Virgin Atlantic tycoon Richard Branson, you can do just that. The private oasis is Necker Island, and it happpens to be the private oasis of choice for the rich and famous.
Necker Island is a tiny Caribbean island just 15 minutes from Virgin Gorda and a 30-minute boat ride from the island of Tortola. Branson first built a main villa on the uninhabited island when he purchased it back in the 1970s. Since then he has added several more residences around the main villa. Visitors can stay in one of the smaller residences, rent the large villa for themselves and a few guests, or rent the entire island and all of its residences for the secluded party getaway of a lifetime. The villa rents for around $5,000 per night, while the entire island goes for approximately $20,000 per night. If money is no object, the price is a steal in exchange for the complete privacy available to yourself and your guests. A Necker Island rental offers every luxury and amenity, including a large staff . Villa guests experience the tropical backdrop, private beach access and level of pampering that rivals the world’s most exclusive results.
