The ultimate luxury wedding destination or honeymoon spot, Necker Island's Great House on Sir Richard Branson's private island is back! New al fresco design with authentic Balinese style & panoramic Caribbean views, Necker Island, Sir Richard Branson's private island and part of the Virgin Limited Edition collection, is excited to announce that the island's new Great House will be completed in September 2013. The Great House will officially be reopened to guests following an extensive two-year restructure and has been inspired by the beautiful features and Balinese style of the original house.
With some new and innovative twists, it boasts amazing panoramic views of the Caribbean, the Atlantic and neighbouring islands. Each of the eight guest rooms has a balcony, and all come with king-size beds and en-suite bathrooms. On the upper level you'll find the Master Suite, which is a whopping 1,500 square feet and has been designed for panoramic views from virtually every angle and includes a two-person Jacuzzi, a stand-alone outdoor bath and a kitchenette area with a fully-stocked fridge. The Great House is the place where people come together and has an expansive outdoor terrace with hammocks and sofas and a large dining table for everyone to gather round to enjoy their meal. There is also a fully-stocked bar for favourite cocktails and up on the roof the crow's nest has amazing views where you'll find a Jacuzzi - perfect for sipping champagne as you watch the sun set. "The brand new Great House is the heart of the island and I am thrilled with the results so far. The opening of the Great House in September signals a new dawn for Necker which I'm very excited about." Richard Branson commented, "Necker Island has been my home for more than 30 years and for me it is the most beautiful place in the world."
For exclusive use bookings, accommodation on Necker Island includes nine bedrooms in the Great House and six individual Bali Houses dotted around the island. There is also a bunkroom in the Great House that sleeps up to six children. The total number of guests that be accommodated on Necker Island is 30 plus six children in the bunkroom at a nightly rate of USD $60,000. Aside from being the ultimate relaxing paradise, the island also provides the perfect setting for a wedding or a celebration with family and friends that you'll never forget.
