Branson’s Necker Island to re-open in December

Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island is set to welcome guests once again when the British Virgin Islands re-opens its borders on December 1 following the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Staff at the Virgin Limited Edition property have spent the downtime completing ongoing restoration works, which began in 2017 following the destruction caused by Hurricane Irma.

After more than two years of construction, those visiting in 2020 and 2021 will be among the first to see the island fully restored.

New additions include a new ‘Bali Hi’ complex, two additional guest rooms and the installation of three giant wind turbines, which strengthen the island’s commitment to sustainability and renewable energy. 

In early 2021, Necker’s sister island Moskito will also launch to the public.

Situated just two miles from Necker, Moskito Island is home to private luxury estates – including the Branson Estate, a complex of three villas sleeping a total of 22 guests – as well as a recreation area and sandy beaches. 

Both Necker Island and Moskito Island are accessible by private jet.
