Take a last-minute escape to Sir Richard Branson’s Island paradise

9th April 2019

Sir Richard Branson's private island in the British Virgin Islands - Necker Island , may be his home and favourite hideaway, but he doesn’t mind sharing a slice of his paradise.

The Island which is usually booked exclusively for up to 30 guests has added some last minute ‘Celebration Weeks’, allowing for individual room bookings during selected dates this Spring.

Guests can book a last-minute stay for the following dates:

Guests will be amongst the first to see the newly restored Great House since it reopened in October last year, while experiencing all the luxuries that come with staying on one of the most exclusive and idyllic islands on earth.

Situated in the picturesque British Virgin Islands, Necker Island’s 74-acre estate has all the ingredients for a holiday of a lifetime. From private tennis lessons with a resident professional coach and top-class watersports, to relaxing on your own stretch of beach or enjoying the tranquillity of the island. What’s more, guests can look forward to up to nine hours of sunshine a day with temperatures reaching up to 30°C during April and May.

Rates per couple start from USD $5,000 per room per night (£3,815 at today’s exchange rate), during April and May in a Great House room.

If that’s too soon to jet off to Necker Island, then later 2019 ‘Celebration Weeks’ dates are available.
