Richard Branson’s Private Island Now Has A Full-Blown Party Estate

Not content to push ambitious transport solutions of the airborne, hyperloop, and intergalactic variety, Richard Branson has once again returned his attention to Moskito Island – one of two Caribbean idylls over which the noted British business magnate and billionaire holds dominion.

Previously home to a trio of palatial private “estates” – the word “villa” feels completely and utterly insufficient – including the The Branson, The Point and The Oasis; these are now joined by The Village: a network of clifftop bungalows that comfortably sleeps up to 18 guests and yields fully sick views of the surrounding Caribbean Sea.

Billed as the “ultimate social hub,” it offers a more party-centric alternative to the other estates dotted across Moskito Island; something that’s fully evident from the facilities that guests who are staying on-site will have access to.

“The village’s [debut] is the next phase in the continuous evolution of Moskito Island,” said Jon Brown, CEO of Virgin Limited Edition, in a press release earlier this week.

“When it comes to providing incomparable, luxurious moments… adding The Village to our collection further amplifies our position as the leaders of luxury in the Caribbean.”

Press release technobabble aside, The Village is built around a series of seven guesthouses, all of which sport their own terrace and discrete living spaces. At the epicentre is the Main Pavilion (see below): housing two guestrooms and offering direct access to the upper level of the Village Estate infinity pool. You’ll also spot the master suite just across the threshold: a velodrome of comfort that boasts the best views of an already excellent lot.

In the arena of group recreation, The Village throws just about every bell and whistle you can think of at its occupants. Beyond the usual litany of comforts you’d associate with luxury villas starting at US$19,000 (AU$30,383) per night – a personal chef, a home cinema, access to “countless watersports” – Virgin personnel also took the liberty of installing a retractable DJ booth inside the Main Pavilion. In tandem with a custom lighting rig and swim-up bar, it’s clear the Village is going to find favour with well-heeled revellers.

Check out a selection of images of the entire estate below.
