Richard Branson's Virgin Island

business leaders and entrepreneurs Biography - Information

Richard Branson's Necker Island is located in the British Virgin islands in the Caribbean. The famous British entrepreneur and founder of Virgin bought the 72 acre island from Lord Cobham. In 1979 Branson offered the owner of Necker Island just £200,000, even though there was a £3,000,000 price tag on the property. The offer was quickly rejected, but the owner ran into financial difficulty and Branson bought the island for £180,000.

Necker Island was uninhabited when Richard Branson bought the property and he has since spent millions of dollars on creating an exclusive retreat for his family, Virgin employees, and the general public (the general rich public).

The whole island is available to rent with a maximum capacity of 26-28 guests allowed on Necker Island at any one time. There are also special "Celebration Weeks" where individual rooms can be hired by singles or couples. Facilities on the island include pools, a gymnasium, tennis courts, function rooms, bars, speed boats, and a library.

In 2008 the rates for renting Necker Island were $47,000 per night, which works out to be $1,679 per person, per night if you bring all your friends! There's also a 5 night minimum.

Richard Branson Quotes Richard Branson Entrepreneur Quotes

The music industry is a strange combination of having real and intangible assets: pop bands are brand names in themselves, and at a given stage in their careers their name alone can practically gaurantee hit records.

I wanted to be an editor or a journalist, I wasn't really interested in being an entrepreneur, but I soon found I had to become an entrepreneur in order to keep my magazine going.
