Billionaire Richard Branson is letting travelers rent his new Moskito Island in British Virgin Islands in the Caribbean — and it’s a lot cheaper than his world famous Necker Island.
Debuted last week, Moskito Island is the new sister island to Branson’s famous Necker (which overlooks Moskito). Moskito is part of Branson’s Virgin Limited Edition portfolio, and it’s a smaller and more intimate island, though Necker is still pretty off the radar as well.
To mark the launch of the new island, two brand new estates will be available to rent (The Oasis and The Point Estate) out of three rentable estates, joining Branson’s very own 11-bed private compound which is currently available to rent.
While there are 10 privately owned estates on Moskito that are all individually designed, 3 of them are now available to rent (some will remain as private estates) – The Oasis Estate, The Point Estate and The Branson Estate. Each estate has its own unique design and style:
- The Oasis Estate: Perched on the highest point of Moskito, this ultra-modern 9-bed villa has a 4-story main house with views of the BVIs. From the Master Bedroom with wrap-around deck, guests will wake up to the sun rising over the famed Necker Island.
- The Point Estate: Nestled cliffside, overlooking the island’s main Manchioneel Beach and neighboring Virgin Gorda, the estate has indoor-outdoor entertaining spaces. The estate has three unique dining areas, including a cliff side, Seaside Pavillion that is perched on the edge of the cliff and boasts panoramic views of the neighbouring islands. With eight bedrooms, including a bunk room with 8 bunks, the hyper-luxe estate comfortably sleeps 22 people. The crown jewel is an infinity edge pool with 180-degree views of the surrounding waters.
- The Branson Estate: Designed by the Branson’s themselves, the three-villa compound is the ultimate multi-family destination. Where coastal chicness meets barefoot luxury, the estate features 3 pools, 3 hot tubs and is home to beautiful seaside dining and play areas that seamlessly blend indoor-outdoor living for a relaxing, private vacation for all.
Like Necker, Moskito offers an all-inclusive, fully customizable vacation. From kite surfing, paddle boarding, hobie cat sailing, and snorkeling with sea turtles, to tennis, Peloton-ing with a side of unspoiled ocean views, to island hiking or even beach olympics, Moskito offers myriad activities that’s all included in the inclusive stay.
Guests also get the privilege of a private chef who will cook up all meals, whether fish from the sea or traditional BVI BBQ.
Naturally, a vacation on the private island isn’t cheap. Here are the rates.
- ● Low season from $25,000
- ● High season from $36,000Oasis Estate
- ● Low season from $19,000
- ● High season from $28,000Point Estate
- ● Low season from $17,500
- ● High season from $20,500
While it’s a pricey, splurgy vacation, it’s still cheaper than the $36,000 a night you’d pay at Necker Island.
