The Aerial: Private Island Experience in BVI

Staying on a private island is an incredible travel experience, but the high rates associated with a private island buyout don’t always make sense for smaller groups of travelers. That’s why Aerial, an eco-friendly private island resort in the British Virgin Islands, is offering individual room bookings and wellness retreats in addition to their full island buyouts. The Aerial Experience: However you choose to enjoy The Aerial, you will have access to a personal island concierge, multiple island hosts, world-class nutritionist chefs, wellness consultants, spa therapists, watersports instructors, and garden and animal specialists. The Aerial is known for having the best views in the BVI, overlooking 14 surrounding islands and the Sir Francis Drake Channel. This prime location means you are right in the middle of some of the best boating in the world! A yacht charter is a great addition to any Aerial private island itinerary. The island’s mission of redemption and restoration is embodied at Redemption Ranch, the island sanctuary for rescue animals saved from across the world. You can learn about each animal’s story and enjoy the therapeutic benefits from these gentle creatures. The rescue horses offer equine therapy, rides on the beach, and lots of love!

Discounted opportunity to stay on Necker Island

Necker Island is a private island paradise owned by Sir Richard Branson. This is barefoot luxury at its finest, and Blue Sky clients have a very special opportunity to stay here for a fraction of the cost. What’s The Offer: Virgin Limited Edition is offering the Blue Sky Inner Circle very discounted rates to stay on Necker Island for five nights from February 5-10, 2024. Usually renting the island costs over $100,000 per night, but we have the opportunity to rent just The Great House.

Who’s Committed So Far: Shanna Dickerson and boyfriend Michael Childs have already claimed one suite! And another suite has been booked by Shanna’s best friend.
