About Necker Island

poolNecker Island was purchased by British entrepreneur, Sir Richard Branson in the late 70′s as a vacation home. Sir Richard owns and operates Virgin Atlantic Airways and more than 200 other companies belonging to the Virgin Group.

The 74-acre island was barren and uninhabited when Sir Richard acquired it. The island is surrounded by coral reefs and marked by sandy beaches, striking rock formations and soaring hills overlooking breathtaking Caribbean seascapes.

An admirer of the natural beauty, art and architecture of Bali, Sir Richard enlisted the help of leading architects, designers and landscape artists to create a Balinese fantasy in the Caribbean. Indigenous art works, brilliant silks and batiks, handcrafted furniture and authentic building materials combine in the outstanding architecture and décor of Necker’s six private villas.

Lavish tropical gardens now bloom throughout the once arid island, providing a haven for exotic birds, fish, insects and reptiles.

Today the island houses a Great House which sleeps 16 and six Balinese Houses which sleep 2 additional guests each.

Necker is also available for private rental when the Branson family is not in residence. It provides the perfect setting for memorable holidays for private groups of families and friends as well as for executive conferences and exclusive incentives. Share the island with others during Celebration Weeks.
