Few people can say they've experienced the private home of a billionaire but If you have time, money and 28 friends that would like to tag along, Necker Island is a paradise you should experience, at least once in your life.
Tucked away in the heart of the Caribbean, Necker Island is part of the British Virgin Islands and accessible only by boat. You must be staying at the island in order to go there, making it a private getaway that is very popular with celebrities and fellow billionaires.
An All-Inclusive experience, having your own private island for a week includes all meals, drink and local excursions. The staff, while low-key are very accommodating and have planned evenings so if you think you are going to go and laze around for a week, think again. There are themed parties, day excursions to other local islands like (Kate Moss fave) Jost Van Dyke, Tortola and Virgin Gorda.
A huge highlight, for me while I was on the island was the vast array of wildlife. Richard Branson is a lover of animals and making sure that endangered species are protected. There are Flamingos, Lemurs, Tortoises and more species of birds then I could ever imagine.
Another highlight enjoyed by all was lounging around the pool and suddenly seeing a kayak, loaded with sushi & flowers. The most colorful display of food I've ever seen.
The story of Mr Branson and how he discovered this paradise and decided to make it his home is inspiring and well worth a listen.
So many beautiful, exotic places in the Caribbean, all with a personality that is unique to the environment. If you ever have an extra $57,000 a night (five night minimum) then I highly suggest you visit and enjoy this 'Once in a Lifetime' experience.
The story of this Caribbean Island is told my the man himself in this video. Enjoy!!
