Sir Richard Branson’s newest private-island destination is officially open, according to Virgin Limited Edition. 

The-125 acre Moskito Island, set in the heart of the British Virgin Islands, is the “newest jewel in the Caribbean,” Virgin says. 

The island’s accommodations are set across three “estates”: The Oasis Estate, the Point Estate and the Branson Estate. 

The Oasis Estate sleeps up to 18 guests; with The Point facilitating 14 guests and eight children and the 11-bedroom The Branson sleeping up to 22 guests (The Branson comes with its own private beach.).

The Point and The Oasis are both new developments. 

The Oasis, set on the highest point of Moskito Island, has nine rooms, including a four-story main house with everything from a swim-up pool bar to a billiards and movie room. 

The Point is a cliffside villa on Moskito’s Manchioneel Beach, with a massive infinity pool and broad views of the water. 

In keeping with the style of Branson’s other British Virgin Islands private destination, Necker Island, the island is all about enjoying nature and the BVI’s marine environment.

That means a broad selection of watersports and other activities, along with options like boat excursions, spa treatments and communal spaces to enjoy time with other guests on the island. 

The island has been 14 years in the making, according to Virgin.

“Moskito Island is the newest, and one of the most exclusive, private islands in the Caribbean,” the company says. 

Both the Point Estate and the Oasis will be available for exclusive buyouts beginning Oct. 10, the company said.
