The billionaire is set to open his new island called Moskito Island to the public soon, find out exactly when!
Richard Branson wants to share with you his amazing and beautiful new piece of land: Moskito Island. The billionaire businessman is preparing everything so people can experience a luxurious vacation in his new paradisiac destination, which is located next to his famous Necker's Island, famous for being a common retreat for celebrities such as the Obamas and Princess Diana.
Moskito Island is a 125-acre private paradise in the British Virgin Islands. It boasts a recreation area and a number of private estates, including Branson's own three-villa, 11-bedroom estate, which is already accepting reservations.
According to the website, the Island is absolutely prepared for people who love to have nice vacations, where they can isolate themselves from all the noise of big cities, while at the same time experiencing a 5 star hotel service:
"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 5star hotel."
The website also tells the story of the island ownership by explaining that Branson first acquired Moskito Island in 2007. Prior to the purchase, the property had been home to a small resort and restaurant, which opened in the mid-1960s. Renovations began in 2010, and "ownership of the island is now shared amongst a number of individual homeowners,"
Rates to book out all 11 rooms of the Branson Villa begin at $25,000, while the cost of booking four rooms is $12,000. Smaller parties can also snag a reservation, and the single-occupancy rate is 25 percent less than the standard double-occupancy rate.
