British Virgin Islands
Situated right in the middle of the island with panoramic views, Temple House and the Love Temple are built in the same Balinese style you’ll find elsewhere on Necker and they’re both a short walk from the Beach House.
This spacious al fresco Balinese house boasts amazing panoramic views of the Caribbean, the Atlantic and neighbouring islands. Each of the eight guest rooms in the Great House has a balcony and all come with king-size beds and en-suite bathrooms. There's also a bunkroom sleeping up to six children. Whilst on the upper level you’ll find the stunning Master Suite, complete with private outdoor Jacuzzi and sundeck.
These three Balinese-style private houses are built on a cliff maximising the views, sea breezes and the sounds of the sea. They are nestled together with one shared plunge pool but all with private en-suite bathrooms. Bali Cliff has a stunning open-air bathroom.
Situated in the centre of the island, these three Bali houses boast wonderful views and share a large central pool. Bali Kukila takes its name from the Indonesian word for bird whilst Bali Buah is the Indonesian word for fruit. Bali Lo is a spacious 3-tiered house with a top floor cosy relaxation area.
Perched at the island’s highest point, the Great House is where people come together, to dine, party or just relax. The house has a wraparound terrace with hammocks and sofas, and this being Necker Island, naturally you can expect a fully stocked bar. Up on the roof you’ll find a cosy four-person Jacuzzi – perfect for sipping champagne as you watch the sun set.
Right on the island main beach, the Beach House sits in between the island’s two tennis courts and the Caribbean Sea. With an impressive bar, space for games tables and an enormous 26-foot sofa, the Beach House is the place for relaxed lunches and enjoying the sea breezes in between dips into the crystal clear waters.
Perched in the middle of Necker Island, Temple House and Love Temple share an infinity edge pool, open lounge and panoramic views. Both are built in the same Balinese style you’ll find elsewhere on island.
Just next to the Beach House, the Beach Pool has a freeform infinity pool complete with a swim-up bar where guests can sit and enjoy a drink. There’s also a huge Jacuzzi right on the beach with space for more than 30 people. Within the pool complex is our thatched Crocodile Pavilion with its large solid teak crocodile table.
Since this is the Caribbean, there are plenty of places on Necker Island to lie on the beach and soak up some sun. Main Beach is where most of our water activities are based whereas Turtle Beach is a more peaceful palm-fringed beach, with hammocks hanging between the trees. For a thrilling way to get down to Turtle Beach why not try our zip line?!
Necker Island is spread over 74 acres with a 3 mile perimeter and there are a number of trails crossing the island. You can also walk all the way round, something Richard does on a regular basis.
Dinner at the Great House is a revelation with a variety of themes to make each night unique. Meet at the bar for cocktails and head up to the roof terrace where dinner will be served while you watch the sun set.
On the upper level of the Beach House is a huge dining table that can seat up to 40 guests at any one time with views overlooking the tennis courts to one side and the ocean to the other.
Turtle Beach is a great option for lunch - we usually organise a sailing race around the island which ends at Turtle Beach for a drink and either a picnic style or BBQ style lunch. If you fancy an afternoon activity the nearby reef promises some great snorkelling opportunities.
We offer a very unique twist to the traditional sushi bar and serve the sushi in a floating kayak filled with ice and decorated with beautiful flowers! The chefs float the kayak down the Beach Pool and are there to tell you what decadent rolls and sashimi they have prepared.
Bali Hi Beach is one of the most beautiful dinner settings you will ever experience. After meeting in the main house for cocktails we’ll drive you down to the beach where you’ll be enchanted by a candlelit dinner, a large bonfire, and the sound of the waves crashing on the beach.
You will see a stunning array of wildlife on Necker Island during your stay, from lemurs to flamingos to giant tortoises and you can even get involved with feeding them!
Richard has developed a passion for trying to help preserve endangered species of Madagascan lemur. We currently have over 60 lemurs on island from six different species including ring-tailed lemurs, three species of brown lemurs and two sub-species of ruffed lemurs. The lemurs are in enclosures all around the Beach House and tennis courts so you can visit them every day.
From the very humble beginnings of just six Caribbean flamingos we now have a successful breeding programme and a total count of well over 250 Roseate and Caribbean flamingos. They live in the salt pond just next to Bali Hi Beach and it has been our aim to establish a breeding ground to repopulate the Caribbean with this once widely spread, stunning bird. ----
Don't be surprised if when you see these guys you fall in love, their plumage is absolutely fantastic to look at. They are one of two species that we have here on Necker, the other being the white ibis. They used to be native to these parts almost 100 years ago, but were hunted to local extinction.
We have nine Aldabra giant tortoises. You will usually spot them on the road leading to Bali Lo so if you’re behind the wheel of one our ‘mules’ (golf buggies) please drive carefully!
The Rock or Stout iguana is endemic to the British Virgin Islands, specifically on the neighbouring island Anegada, where they were re-introduced in the early 1980s. They can grow up to over 6ft long so you won’t miss them!
