Welcome to Moskito Island in the beautiful and unspoiled British Virgin Islands. Moskito Island goes beyond conventional villa rental, with exceptional personal service in a secluded and private Caribbean setting. The island currently features a Recreation Area and the three villa Branson Estate.
Situated on 125 acres of stunning paradise and surrounded by turquoise Caribbean waters, Moskito Island is Sir Richard Branson’s second sensational private island escape in the British Virgin Islands. Blessed with stunning scenery and home to exceptional accommodation, this new arrival is a private island classic in the making.

Fine food is the highlight of any guest's stay on Moskito, and the options are endless. We can create bespoke menus around your individual tastes, or if you’re lacking inspiration we’ll let our chefs do the work. Dining can be formal or informal, indoor or outdoor, themed or traditional, beachside or poolside, or even under the stars. All meals and events can be arranged by our team on island. The Beach House kitchen is directly adjacent to a terrace and outdoor dining area with a grill and dedicated pizza oven and seating for 25.
Moskito Island is situated in the beautiful and unspoiled British Virgin Islands. The island currently features a Recreation Area and the three villa Branson Estate. The Branson Estate was inspired by Necker Island, just a short boat ride away, and provides the perfect balance between that ‘home away from home’ feeling combined with the full range of services you’d expect from a luxury resort.
The island is designed to accommodate 22 guests, but slightly larger groups can also be accommodated for a supplementary fee. Please contact us for more details and note that, spa treatments and motorized watersports are not included within the rental price.
Moskito Island is located in the British Virgin Islands, close to Virgin Tortola and just less than a mile away from Branson’s original island retreat, Necker Island.
The Branson Estate on Moskito Island is available to book year-round and offers a total 11 bedrooms capable of accommodating 22 guests. During their stay, guests can take their pick of three exquisite villas, each with their own incredible infinity pool: Headland House (3 bedrooms, including one Master Suite), the Beach Villa (4 bedrooms including one Master Suite) and the Mangrove Villa (four bedrooms, including one Master Suite).
The three villas are complemented by a stunning Recreation Area located towards the east of the island, where guests can take advantage of a diverse range of activities and dining options all based around the island’s Beach House. Home to a simply breath-taking wraparound infinity pool, a hot tub, a swim-up bar and even a nearby tennis pavilion, it’s the perfect location to recline, relax and soak up the stunning scenery with friends and family.
Guests can choose from a sensational selection of inspirational and indulgent gastronomic creations, created with love by a dedicated team of talented chefs who are always on hand to cater for your culinary whims and fancies. All meals and drinks are included within the price.
