Balinese spirit has echoed throughout the 74 magical acres of Necker Island ($60,000 a night for up to 30 guests) ever since Richard Branson completed his ultimate private island in the British Virgin Islands almost 30 years ago.
The debut of the brand new Great House this fall proves neither fire nor lightning can stop this Virgin Island from becoming even more intoxicating than before.
Located on the island’s most elevated point, The Great House is still the resort’s highlight, as it was when Harrison Ford, Oprah Winfrey, and the Rolling Stones were on shore.
Eight rooms, each complete with en-suite bathrooms and private balconies, celebrate Balinese lifestyle and design, while the 1,500-square-foot up-per level Master Suite stuns with panoramic views of the BVIs.
Other accommodations on Necker Island include six Bali Houses and the Temple House, which has its own pool and views of a flamingo-filled lake.
Whether it’s the healers at the spa anticipating your call or the surprise flower-decorated kayaks floating sushi in the pool at lunchtime, the Branson/Virgin vibe—cool, casual, and luxurious—will truly define your stay.
