There are over 70 staff on hand to take care of all luxury holiday needs, from a team of private chefs to water sports and dive instructors.

The island is well known for its luxurious and fun lifestyle, with highlights including the Necker Nymph, a private submarine which is available to hire for those that wish to explore the lush coral reef. The wildlife on land is vibrant, with 200 pink flamingos living on the island along with parrots and tortoises.

With the BBC's profile of the island, regardless of their angle, we're expecting a flurry of interest and enquiries from the world's more well-heeled holidaymakers, who, if up to now unfamiliar with the destination, will be drawn by the beauty of this Caribbean gem.”
