Necker Island

The British Virgin Islands

January 5, 2024 / Lifestyle

Once upon a time, a bride and groom dreamt of the most fabulous place to honeymoon.  In this dream, the destination would have perfect weather year-round, would consist of many islands that are known for supreme seclusion and of course have close to nonexistent crime rates.  This was my exact dream eleven years ago for my own honeymoon, and my dream came true.  I first visited the British Virgin Islands then, and they are just as magical today as they have always been.

The BVI’s are known for exclusivity and are some of the least-developed islands of the Caribbean, which only adds to their allure.  Yachting crowds recognize the British Virgin Islands as one of the most impressive places for island-hopping in all the Caribbean. The hardest part of your honeymoon will be the decision on which island to choose.  So, grab your sun hat, a favorite novel, and enjoy on some of the most beautiful beaches and resorts in the world. 

Necker Island.  

Necker Island is 74 complete acres and is owned by Sir Richard Branson. This private island is available in an unspoiled area of the Caribbean and is surrounded by white sandy beaches. 

Branson has a deep passion for conservation so guest can anticipate untouched reefs and plentiful amounts of wildlife.   

As for accommodations, no two rooms are the same and have been designed with your every need in mind. All rooms overlook the ocean with panoramic views.

Little Dix Bay, Virgin Gorda.

Little Dix Bay is a Rosewood property and is neatly nestled in between the trees and a half-mile beach of powder-white sand. As an eco-friendly resort originally designed by the Rockefellers, Little Dix Bay features natural elements as part of its aesthetic and charm. 

Rooms are camouflaged amongst gardens and shaded footpaths. Outdoor showers covered in natural stone are blended in with nature. 

The Rosewood spa sits along a cliff overlooking the Sir Frances Drake channel and features services inspired by African ancestral healing traditions combined with contemporary techniques. 

Guana Island .

Guana island is 850 acres, and over ninety percent of that is untouched land.  Only registered guests (there are only 18 rooms) are allowed on the island.  There are no commercial facilities on the island – no public bars, restaurants or any tourist attractions.  It is completely private and protected.  

The accommodations at Guana island are intimate, built of native stone and coral and all have terraces with ocean views.  

Guana island has its own organic orchard, which is used for producing all their farm-to-table cuisine. All breads and muffins are made directly on the island from internationally trained chefs.
