Yes it’s coming and there’s no escaping it, the snow, the slush the cold… Time to start planning for that tropical getaway.  If you’re looking for luxury you might want to consider Necker Island in the BVI.  This 74 acre island is filled with spectacular views including the view obtained from one room located on the edge of an oceanfront cliff that offers a picturesque vista of the property.
Accommodations include 9 rooms in the Main House each with their own private bathrooms and terraces and two villas each with their own pool.  (Rates are $25,000 for a week’s stay  for 2 or $The resort with a staff of 50 also offers a myriad of activities from water sports, to spa treatments, open air dining, fresh water pools as well as tours to the neighboring islands of Tortola or St. Thomas.

This luxurious setting however does more than just indulge the whims and desires of A-listers and has an ulterior purpose that is a little more altruistic.

Richard Branson, the founder of Virgin Group of Companies including Virgin Records has been championing alternative energies for some time now and based on recent interviews his plans are to turn both Necker Island and his latest acquisition Moskito Island into zero emission luxury resorts by making optimal use of solar, wind and wave energy.  His ultimate hope is that this will encourage other Caribbean islands to do the same.

A guiltless indulgence in a tropical paradise!
