Necker Island, Sir Richard Branson’s home and private hideaway in the British Virgin Islands has announced its 2020 dates for its highly popular Celebration Weeks.
The private island is mostly available for exclusive use bookings but during selected weeks of the year, the island opens up ‘hotel-style’ to allow for guests to book individual rooms on the island, perfect for those extra special getaways without having to book the entire island.
The first available Celebration Week for 2020 is from the 3rd – 9th January for a 6-night stay. If that’s too soon to jet off to Necker Island, then later 2020 ‘Celebration Weeks’ dates are also available in September and October:
For the first time, next year will also see the island become available for small group bookings. From June 2020, small groups of between 8-15 will be able to book the island on a shared non-exclusive basis with rates starting from US $5,000, (£3,872 at today’s exchange rate) per room, per night.
Guests visiting in 2020 will be among the first to see the fully completed Necker Island, following more than two years of reconstruction after Hurricane Irma. The newly renovated Bali Hi complex has been beautifully restored to its former glory with the addition of private plunge pools and will be open from April 2020. Guests will be able to experience Necker Island better than ever before, while experiencing all the luxuries that come with staying on one of the most exclusive and idyllic islands in the world.
Rates per couple during a ‘Celebration Week’ start from US $5,000 (£3,872 at today’s current exchange rate), per room per night.
There is also a bunkroom in the Great House that sleeps up to six children, additional rates from US $3,500 (£2,700 at today’s current exchange rate) per night.
Situated in the stunning British Virgin Islands, Necker Island’s 74-acre estate sits in turquoise waters surrounded by coral reefs and fringed with beautiful white sandy beaches. It has all the ingredients for a holiday of a lifetime, from private tennis lessons with a resident professional coach and top-class water sports, to simply relaxing on the beach or enjoying the tranquillity of the island.
