Necker Island BVI Recovery…Richard Branson’s Necker Island suffered severe damage from Hurricane Irma, but recovery is in sight.
The 74-acre paradise, just off the coast of Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands, plans to partially reopen in October!
The island has been shuttered since September when Irma destroyed most of the buildings and its plant life over the several hours it made landfall.
Construction is almost complete on the Great House, which is on the highest point of the island and is the main gathering place for guests. The Great House will reopen in October 2018. Guest cottages, however, are slated to reopen later in 2019.
“Guests can look forward to white sandy beaches, luxurious accommodations, water sports, and top-class food in one of the most beautiful regions of the world,” Branson’s company, Virgin Group, said in a statement.
Branson, who rode out the hurricane on the island alongside staff, has been very involved in the recovery effort in the Caribbean after a devastating hurricane season.
There will be 11 bedrooms in the Great House, including the fabulous Master suite and a bunkroom that sleeps up to six children. The total number of guests that can easily be accommodated on the island is 22, plus six children in the bunkroom. If your party is larger than 22, accommodations can be made for an additional 16 guests on neighboring Moskito Island (only a 5-minute boat ride from Necker) using Beach Villa and Mangrove Villa, each with four bedrooms.
More rooms will be added in December 2018 and at various stages throughout 2019 and we will keep you up to date with this exciting news as it develops. One thing is for sure we will be able to accommodate groups of all sizes in true Necker style!
