One of the most exclusive private-island destinations in the Caribbean is making a triumphant return as Virgin Limited Edition share the first photos of the newly created rooms.
Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands has officially reopened following the devastation caused by Hurricane Irma, and it promises to be every bit as luxurious as it was. Guests are being welcomed back to a newly restored Great House, complete with 2 brand new rooms and an additional Balinese style house; Leha Lo which can sleep 2 adults.
“It is wonderful to see Necker Island’s beauty restored”
.The spacious and al fresco Great House, now with 11 guest rooms, boasts amazing panoramic views of the Caribbean, the Atlantic and neighbouring islands. Each of the bedrooms has a balcony and all come with king-size beds and en-suite bathrooms. There’s also a bunk room sleeping up to six children. Whilst on the upper level you’ll find the stunning Master Suite, complete with private outdoor Jacuzzi and sundeck.
Jon Brown, Managing Director for Virgin Limited Edition commented: “It is wonderful to see Necker Island’s beauty restored and to have welcomed back our first guests. It has been a busy year and it’s not over yet as we look forward to 2019 and the reopening of further accommodations; including a new and improved Bali Hi complex which will feature an extended pool and outdoor lounge as well as a private plunge pool in each of the individual Bali Houses.”
Necker becomes the latest of the British Virgin Islands’ private-islands to relaunch this year, along with other top resorts including Guana Island and Cooper Island. Necker Island can be booked exclusively throughout the year for up to 30 guests with rates starting from $77,500 per night.
