(CMC) – Necker Island, one of the outer islands in the territory, will reopen for business in October.

The island, owned by British business tycoon, Richard Branson, was devastated last year when Hurricane Irma slammed into the territory.

“Work is well underway to rebuild the island and guests can look forward to white sandy beaches, luxurious accommodation, watersports, tennis, and world-class food in one of the most beautiful regions of the world,” said Branson’s Virgin Limited Edition in a media release earlier this week.

Once refurbished, the island will provide 11 bedrooms at its Great House, which will include a master suite, and a bunkroom that can house up to six children.

The release stated that more rooms will be added throughout 2019.

In recent months, the local tourism industry has been showing signs of recovery with the return of cruise ships and an increase in visitors.

The tourism industry — one of the country’s main revenue earners, was one of the hardest hit during last year’s disaster.
