Inside Richard Branson's new luxury private island – with two-storey infinity pool and glass bottom hot tub | The Sun

RICHARD Branson's private Moskito Island has an ultra-luxurious new estate – and it includes a two-story infinity pool and glass bottom hot tub.

Located on the Caribbean's newest private island, the nine-bedroom property is called The Village.





It joins three other estates that already call Moskito home – The Branson Estate (owned by Sir Richard Branson), The Oasis Estate and The Point Estate.

Perched on the furthest western tip of the island with astounding sea views across to Virgin Gorda, the 18,100sqft estate is set in 3.5 acres.

Sir Richard Branson purchased Moskito Island, which is near his Necker Island, for £10million in 2007.

Rates for The Village start from $19,000 (£16,745) per night during low-season, for up to 18 guests.



Featuring nine bedrooms, and available for exclusive buyout only, Virgin Limited Edition say it is the estate’s futuristic technology and quirky amenities that sets it apart.

A hidden DJ booth rises from the outdoor deck overlooking a two-story infinity pool for the ultimate in partying, while a cantilevered glass-bottom hot tub extended over the cliff edge will be ready in 2023.

Designed as a "home-away-from-home", each of the nine guest rooms at The Village act as their own secluded retreat with ensuite bathrooms, private living room space and spacious terraces or patios.

The crown jewel is the two-story Master Suite designed in a circular loop and completed by a 360-degree wrap-around terrace that not only creates a seamless indoor-outdoor living experience but boasts spectacular views.

The Village’s main house is an entertaining hub and is intended as "a beacon of sorts", sitting proudly at the top of the hill.

A communal bar – matched with a uniquely designed living area – draws up to a spiral staircase that leads to the estate’s rooftop.

Playing into the estate’s high-tech offerings, the staircase is also wrapped with audio-synced, LED lighting, where the lights move to the beat of the music projected from the stadium-quality sound system.

Additional amenities of The Village include a fully-equipped, gym, sound-proof home cinema, pizza oven and an organic kitchen garden.

Guests of Moskito Island have access to communal recreational areas including two arena-inspired tennis courts, watersports center, gaming, entertaining and movie areas in the communal Beach House, and a fully serviced private beach.

Gastronomy on the island knows no limits, with an array of dining locations and tailored experiences to choose from; whether picnics on Manchioneel Beach, candlelit dinners under the Caribbean stars or pizza-making classes at The Beach House or in the comfort of your own estate.

Bespoke and personalised spa treatments are offered in the comfort of each estate or across the island in private, secluded locations too.

Rates include a dedicated Estate Manager and team of staff, as well as a team of private chefs across the island.

Jon Brown, Managing Director at Virgin Limited Edition explains: "Since our anticipated opening late-last year, we’ve humbly been celebrated on the world stage for delivering an exceptional and extremely unique hospitality experience in the Caribbean that goes beyond the realms of traditional luxury.

"The debut of The Village is the next phase in the continuous evolution of Moskito Island – a private island escape unlike any other.

"A decade in the making, The Village Estate takes luxury to new heights, much like its sister estates, with an impressively striking design, state-of-the-art creative amenities and unspoiled panoramic views in the most private of settings.
