Back in 1979, flush with cash generated by his Virgin record label, Richard Branson dropped £180,000 on a piece of scrub–where else?–in the Virgin Islands. Necker Island was eventually transformed into one of the most expensive Caribbean escapes for the rich and famous.
How expensive? The average going rate to rent the island is £40,000 (about $72,500 CAD) a night. And for that price, you can do pretty much whatever you want with the place.
- Eat sushi off the naked body of an employee
- Fire golf balls at staff members dressed in sumo suits bouncing on an offshore trampoline.
