Necker Island has been nominated for the Most Prestigious Private Dining Venue in the only global luxury venue awards.

The island can be hired exclusively for groups of up to 30 people for weddings and parties or for corporate retreats and conferences.

About Prestigious Star Awards

The Prestigious Star Awards celebrate the quality, performance and reputation of the world’s best venues qualified to host the most memorable events. Now in its sixth year, the program remains the only global luxury venue industry awards - renowned for identifying and promoting the world’s most distinguished venues.

Over 2,000 reputable venues apply to enter and only 200 of the world's most prestigious venues are nominated. After a public voting period taking place in July, the 20 winning venues are then announced at an awards evening in London on the 18th September 2015. The award of a ‘Prestigious Star’ is presented to one venue across each of the 20 categories. The annual thought-leadership element of the awards, The Creative Platform, is a unique opportunity to learn about the world’s most memorable, entertaining and prestigious events.

"The Prestigious Star Awards program offers event bookers a qualified shortlist and enables them to create the most memorable experiences. On the other hand, it provides high calibre venues an opportunity to be reviewed, qualified and celebrated by event bookers. Being recognised by the Prestigious Star Awards has reinforced the outstanding reputation of already established venues and has enhanced the awareness and credibility of emerging ones." - Habib Amir, Global Managing Director, Prestigious Venues

"We're delighted that Necker Island has again been nominated as one of the most prestigious venues in the world. For special occasions and milestone celebrations, Necker offers clients a wealth of inspiration. Every event is entirely unique and the team delights in pulling off the seemingly impossible to create something truly memorable." - Natalie Odenbreit, Regional Director of Sales - UK & Europe
