Surrounded by clear, turquoise waters and ringed with pristine sandy beaches, it is the perfect place to soak up the Caribbean sun in complete privacy. Stay in one of the three main buildings: perched on the island’s highest point, the Great House boasts 11 stunning guest rooms including a Master Suite with an outdoor hot tub and sundeck; high on the rocks above the beach lies the airy Leha Lo with 180-degree sea views; and the Bali Lo, a complex of three houses with a large private pool. Whichever of the Island’s houses you choose to stay in, you are assured fantastic service, breathtaking views, and stunning natural surroundings. With no itinerary or expectation, indulge in the small luxuries of swinging in hammocks between palm trees or simply lounging on one of the private, shaded terraces.
While it would be easy to spend days simply enjoying the Caribbean weather and lazing on the beach, Necker Island invites adventure and exploration. Explore the island itself and encounter a stunning array of wildlife from lemurs to and flamingos to tortoises and iguanas. Or head off the island on a scuba diving trip and explore the nearby reefs and wrecks that teem with a variety of fish.
