This has been a crazy day on Richard Branson’s Necker Island! I had lunch with Richard, participated in non-stop activities from morning to night, and was lucky to survive a pedal paddle-boarding adventure.
As usual this week, I’m too busy having fun to write much, so I’ll let the videos tell the story…
Zip Lining to lunch with Richard Branson
Pedal Paddle-Boarding Adventure.
My wife and I are currently enjoying a 1 week vacation on Sir Richard Branson’s private island: Necker Island. The usual price for a Celebration Week* on the island is just north of $30,000. Instead, we paid 1.2 million Virgin Atlantic miles. For additional background, please see “Considering the 1.2 million mile Necker Island challenge,” and “Days away from Necker Island.”
* The island is normally hired exclusively for up to 34 guests sharing 17 bedrooms on an all- inclusive basis. Rates start from $78,000 per night ($2,294 per person per night). It can also be shared with others during Celebration Weeks; these are held several times each year and allow guests to book individual rooms as opposed to hiring the entire island. Prices for Celebration Weeks start from $30,000 for a 7 night stay.
