Necker Island is back in business, bigger and better

Richard Branson's Necker Island is back in business.

The luxury resort located in the British Virgin Islands reopened in October, just over a year after Hurricane Irma wrecked the property. 

"It’s been a busy year for our team involved with the island rebuild and we’re incredibly proud of the hard work, determination and dedication that has made it possible. Whilst there is still construction underway, and with more Bali Houses opening in the coming months, here’s a sneak peek of Necker Island so far," an article on the resort's website says. 

The Great House has been restored with two brand new rooms bringing the total number of rooms to 11, and an additional Balinese style house, Leha Lo which sleeps two adults.

Each of the bedrooms has a balcony and all come with king-size beds and en-suite bathrooms. There’s also a bunk room sleeping up to six children.

On the upper level, the stunning Master Suite, complete with private outdoor Jacuzzi and sundeck.

The property has also seen improvements outside of the Great House. Turtle Beach, described as the perfect spot for relaxing and hanging with friends, features a hammock and a sunken trampoline.

You can have dinner under the stars at the main beach or enjoy outdoor activities at one of two courts at the Beach Pavilion.

Necker Island can be booked exclusively throughout the year for up to 30 guests with rates starting from US$77, 500  per night.
