Virgin Limited Edition: The hot spots of luxury travel all under one roof

Last updated on

Sir Richard Branson has revolutionized the luxury travel sector with his collection of ultra-luxury estates that cover almost all the main attractions of luxury travel. It’s an ingenious idea, as each property – private islands, mountain retreat, catamaran, game reserve, lodge, restaurant and private members club – carries the stamp of luxury associated with the Virgin Limited Edition. What “Google” means for Internet, “Virgin” is for luxury travel.

We’ll start with the Moroccan retreat, Kashbah Tamadot, that’s nestled into the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. The gorgeous estate has eighteen bedrooms and suites, indoor and outdoor pools, a spa and fine dining. The Kasbah Tamadot Spa has a menu of luxury spa treatments and pampering packages. Guests can also workout in the top-of-the-line gym with panoramic views, play tennis, try yoga classes, take day trips to Marrakech, go hot air ballooning, go on guided hikes in the mountains and can select from trekking guides with mules and horses. And this is only the beginning of a beautiful friendship with Virgin.

The Lodge is a stunning chalet for 18 guests in the ultra-exclusive Swiss Alps resort town Verbier, Switzerland. Just meters from the main lifts and on one of the returning trails, the Lodge’s convenient location is ideal for any ski vacation. The gorgeous scenery is also an ideal mountain getaway year-round and guests can always enjoy the indoor heated pool, indoor and outdoor Jacuzzis, private gym, wine cellar, Virgin Touch Spa and a chef creating divine Swiss and international gourmet meals. During the summer, guests can hike through the spectacular Alpine trails, play tennis, go paragliding, rock climbing, mountain biking, golf, shop and more! And then, of course, is the snowy winter wonderland that is a dream for any skier or snowboarder. Guests can also go ice skating, heli-skiing, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.

The Roof Gardens is a Private Members Club high in the London sky on Kensington High Street. The luxury rooftop playground includes the Babylon restaurant and a Clubhouse. The club can hold up to 500 guests sprawled across a verdant garden of paradise with natural wildlife and real flamingos! The event space is perfect for exhibitions, conferences, award shows, launches and other important corporate events. Guests can also enjoy the delectable Babylon restaurant and dance the night away at the Roof Garden Club. The Roof Gardens is available for rent day and night and provides incredible scenery that is sure to leave a lasting impression.

Let’s travel south into the golden African sun in the Sabi Sand Reserve of South Africa. Ulusaba Private Game Reserve has two lodges to accommodate a truly adventurous vacation. The Rock Lodge can accommodate up to 20 people in its eight rooms and is located on the summit of a koppie looking out onto the Drakensberg Mountain range. The Safari Lodge is built on the Mabrak riverbed, complete with tree house rooms connected by swing bridges. Ulusaba provides luxury honeymoon packages for the perfect romantic getaway in addition to a luxury spa, wine cellar, an Observatory for spectacular star-gazing evenings, shopping, tennis, private gyms and delicious dining. Guests can also select from a variety of tours and excursions including a helicopter tour of waterfalls and canyons, wildlife safaris, a tour of the local community, and a guide into the Cheetah and Endangered Wildlife Breeding Project and Blyde River Canyon.

Finally, there’s the Virgin Limited Edition calling card; a gorgeous you-have-to-see-it-to-believe-it private island in the British Virgin Islands: Necker Island. This is la crème de la crème of luxury private islands in the Caribbean: turquoise water, powdery white beaches, vibrant coral reefs and gorgeous accommodations. Necker Island’s Great House crowns a lush hilltop with breathtaking panoramic views of the island.

There is a master suite and eight guest rooms, each with terrace views and tailor-made Balinese decorations. There are five additional private villa houses scattered around the island for the ultimate secluded and romantic hideaway. Guests staying in the Bali houses are given a golf cart for moving around the island. Guests can spend their days strolling along the pristine beaches, sailing, windsurfing, kite surfing, waterskiing, playing tennis, snorkeling, deep sea fishing, scuba diving, kayaking, or simply pass the time reading a book swinging on an ocean-side hammock. Does it get any better than this? Yes! Rent Necker Island, as Branson’s Island also provides a list of entertainment ideas from yacht charters to floating sushi bars, ensuring guests that a vacation on this Caribbean private island is nothing short of paradise.

The Virgin Limited Edition also provides Lady B, a catamaran; Sa Terra Rotja, a Spanish estate in Mallorca, and another private island in the Caribbean, Mosquito Island.
