Our Values

On Necker Island, our service style means always being professional and honest, and constantly searching for new ways to improve our guest experience. Taking care of the environment is also high on our agenda. Necker Island is committed to sustainable development and respecting the local community and environment in which we operate.

Some of Necker's ambitions and initiatives include:

  • Recruiting, training and promoting local staff where possible
  • Experimenting with wind and solar power to meet 90% of the island's energy needs
  • Our chefs are selective with food suppliers to ensure the animals used for the meat, fish and dairy are humanely treated and antibiotic free.
  • An official sustainable seafood sourcing policy ensures that the fish served is sourced in a seasonal and sustainable way.
  • Encouraging the flamingo population on island to breed - something done in only a handful of places worldwide
  • Continually supporting the local community through Virgin Unite, the Virgin Group's entrepreneurial arm
  • Introducing health programmes such as Richard's 0% challenge, to fight the battle of HIV around the world

We know that some changes can be made immediately and others may take some time, however we believe these are some of the areas we can make our business both more sustainable and kinder to the environment.

Preparing for your stay

What’s the weather like?

Unsurprisingly, this is one of the most common questions people ask us when booking a stay on Necker Island. The average monthly temperature in the British Virgin Islands ranges from highs of around 82°F (28°C) in January to highs of roughly 95°F (35°C) in July. In short, it’s hot and sunny pretty much all year round!

Regardless of when you plan your visit to Necker Island, you can expect the weather to be warm and pleasant, with the months from September to December generally somewhat wetter than the rest of the year. July is the hottest month, but only by a few degrees.

What to pack

Situated in the tropics, the weather in the British Virgin Islands is hot and fairly humid throughout the year so it's best to dress for the heat. Unless a specially-themed event has been organised for your stay or you prefer to dress up for dinner, there is no need to bring smart clothes and beachwear is just fine anywhere on the island.

For guests staying during a Celebration Week when the island is shared, many evenings will have special themes so we recommend asking our team what these might be before you finish packing.
