Top Romantic Caribbean Island Getaways


In June 2013, we received very sad news. A fire destroyed the Caribbean home of Sir Richard Branson on his private island: Necker Island.

But today Virgin Limited Edition just announced that, The Great House on Necker Island, the private home of Sir Richard Branson is now complete and ready to welcome you.

We invite you to check the Necker Island photo gallery to see the final exterior and interior layout of the new Great House, which has been remodelled on the original design, with the addition of some innovative design twists.

booknow Inspired by the beautiful features and Balinese style of the original structure, the new Great House offers breath-taking panoramic views of the Caribbean, the Atlantic and neighbouring islands. Each of the eight guest rooms has a balcony, and all come with king-size beds and spacious en-suite bathrooms. On the upper level you’ll find the Master Suite, which is a whopping 1,500 square feet and has been designed for panoramic views from virtually every angle and includes a two-person Jacuzzi, a stand-alone outdoor bath and a kitchenette area with a fully-stocked fridge.

The Great House is the place where people come together and has an expansive outdoor terrace with hammocks and sofas and a large dining table for everyone to gather round to enjoy their meal. There’s a fully-stocked bar for favourite cocktails and up on the roof the crow’s nest has stunning views where you’ll find a Jacuzzi – perfect for sipping champagne as you watch the sun set. And if you feel like a quick dip in the sea before lunch, then hop on the zip-line that quickly transports you from the Great House terrace all the way down to the sandy white beaches.
Sir Richard Branson commented: “Necker Island has been my home for more than 30 years and for me it is the most beautiful place in the world. The brand new Great House is the heart of the island and I’m thrilled with the results. This signals a new dawn for Necker, which I’m very excited about.”

For exclusive use bookings, accommodation on Necker Island includes nine bedrooms in the Great House including the stunning Master Suite and six individual Bali Houses dotted around the island. There is also a bunkroom in the Great House that sleeps up to six children. The total number of guests that can be accommodated on Necker Island is 30 plus six children at a nightly rate of USD $60,000 until the 31st December 2013.

Aside from being the ultimate relaxing paradise, the island also provides the perfect setting for a wedding or a celebration with family and friends that you’ll never forget.

For those who want to enjoy the full Necker experience without having to hire the entire island ‘Celebration Weeks’ provide the opportunity to book an individual room ‘hotel-style’ for seven nights. *

Necker Island is located in the British Virgin Islands, a stunning and unspoilt area of the Caribbean and is surrounded by turquoise waters and coral reefs and fringed with beautiful white sandy beaches.
