The British entrepreneur Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin Group , is a man of many resources. One of Branson’s greatest passions is the seaside, preferably united with the highest level of comforts and well-being that only a luxury structure can provide.
Driven by this passion of his, the British magnate decided to purchase an entire island. The paradise island in question is called Necker Island, a small atoll in the British Virgin islands, distinguished by 70 hectares of pure tropical vegetation and golden beaches, washed by turquoise waters that reveal a magnificent barrier reef and rich marine fauna.
The district of Necker Island was planned with the intention of creating a truly luxurious resort, reserved for a limited circle of Branson’s affluent friends, in a position to spend a considerable sum to enjoy the island. The exclusive haven represents the perfect getaway to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and enjoy the pure bliss of total relaxation and tranquillity in absolute luxury.
On the night of August 23rd 2011 the island endured terrible damage due to a violent fire during the storms of Hurricane Irene which hit the region. It has been confirmed that significant reconstruction work has since taken place. After more than two years, the structure will return to full working mode after this devastating tragedy.
This exclusive luxury complex provides its fortunate guests with an impressive water sports centre, where it is possible to practice windsurf, kite surf, along with many more water sports. Furthermore, the deluxe complex is home to a beach house with two tennis courts with highly qualified instructors. Not to mention there are two spectacular spa areas positioned directly on the beach with an unbeatable view of the Caribbean sea. All of which is designed and completed with a profound appreciation for luxury and the highest attention to detail.
A holiday in this magical spot is not in everybody’s price range. The daily cost to stay in this magnificent resort almost reaches an incredible total of $60,000.
