Sir Richard Branson is inviting the public to experience the luxury of staying at one of his private islands.
This spring, the billionaire businessman, 70, is set to open Moskito Island, a 125-acre private paradise in the British Virgin Islands, to the public. It’s located just two miles away from his beloved Necker Island, a strip of sand he purchased in 1978 when he was just 29 years old that has welcomed A-listers for Princess Diana to the Obamas.
In addition to its pristine white beaches, the private island boasts a recreation area and a number of private estates, including Branson’s own three-villa, 11-bedroom estate — which is already accepting reservations.
“Moskito Island is made up of a collection of luxury private villas (or estates as we call them) which can be rented by guests looking for the ultimate island hideaway with exceptional service, just like you’d expect from a 5=star hotel,” the website states.
The Branson estate can accommodate up to 22 guests, and additional villas are expected to open later in 2021
