Moskito Island Debuts New Estate, The Village

Moskito Island, the Caribbean’s newest private island, has launched a new nine-bedroom estate: The Village. It joins three estates that already call Moskito home–The Branson Estate (owned by Richard Branson), The Oasis Estate and The Point Estate. Following its debut in late 2021, Moskito Island offers four private retreats as part of the Virgin Limited Edition portfolio.

Perched on the furthest western tip of the island with sea views across to Virgin Gorda, the 18,100-square-foot estate set in 3.5 acres presents a modern design comprising multiple cottage-like structures with thatched roofs. Featuring nine bedrooms, accommodating up to 18 guests and available for buyout only, it features a hidden DJ booth that rises from the outdoor deck overlooking a two-story infinity pool; a cantilevered glass-bottom hot tub extended over the cliff edge that will be ready in 2023; a slide that wraps around the edge of the estate; and an advanced lighting and sound system.

Each of the nine guestrooms features en-suite bathrooms, private living rooms and terraces or patios. The two-story Master Suite designed in a circular loop and completed by a 360-degree wraparound terrace that creates a seamless indoor-outdoor living experience. The Village’s main house is an entertaining hub, situated at the top of the hill. A communal bar, matched with a designed living area, draws up to a spiral staircase that leads to the estate’s rooftop. Playing into the estate’s high-tech offerings, the staircase is also wrapped with audio-synced LED lighting.

The multi-level infinity-edge pool is anchored at either end by the Main Pavilion and Dining Pavilion, and lined with palm trees. The space also features a submerged dry lounge, swim-up bar and second pool that leads to the Master Suite, framing views of the Caribbean waters. The submerged “bar” sits at the edge of the pool, and a glass encased dry-lounge with sunken fire pit is built into the center of the pool, while an eight-seater under-the-water dining table lies at the infinity-edge pool. A slide spirals down from the submerged bar to connect the top infinity space with a secondary lower-level pool, and through an undercover archway sits a hidden tranquil escape, providing a lower entrance to the Main Pavilion.

Additional amenities of The Village include a fully equipped gym, sound-proof home cinema and a pizza oven. Freshly harvested produce from the organic kitchen garden is used daily by chefs curating tailor-made dining experiences for guests. Guests will have access to two arena-inspired tennis courts, water sports center, gaming, entertaining and movie areas in the communal Beach House and a fully serviced private beach. They can choose from a range of dining locations and tailored experiences, be it picnics on Manchioneel Beach, candlelit dinners under the Caribbean stars or pizza-making classes at The Beach House or in the comfort of the estate. Bespoke and personalized spa treatments are offered in each estate or across the island in private locations.

Rates for The Village during low-season can accommodate up to 18 guests, and include a dedicated estate manager and team of staff, besides a team of private chefs across the island. All meals, drinks, non-motorized water sports and a fully personalized itinerary are also part of the rate. Minimum night stays apply throughout the year.
