Live out your James Bond fantasies and take a ride in the aero-submarine Necker Nymph, one of the world's first underwater aircraft. The Necker Nymph three person submarine effectively flies underwater, using a ‘downward lift’ to descend, it can delve to depths as deep as thirty metres, with average durations of forty minutes. Guests wearing normal scuba breathing gear are accompanied by a certified Dive Pilot, explore the deep together, gliding over glorious reefs and flying side-by-side with dolphins - guaranteed to satisfy the most adventurous person's desires.
Please note the Nymph has limited availability for hire, and comes at an additional cost.
Necker Island was originally intended as a family holiday home, so children are of course, very welcome. There is a choice of sporting activities, together with a large range of children's DVDs, toys, an Xbox, books and games. There is even a fun range of children's beauty products and a welcome pack of treats.

'Leha Leha' is the Balinese way of describing peace, relaxation and daydreaming, and there is no better place to do this than at the Necker Island Spa. Bali Leha is built into a cliff overlooking the sea and whilst being pampered by a fabulous range of treatments, you can enjoy the beautiful ocean views, or close your eyes and drift away to the gentle sounds of the sea. A wonderful treatment list incorporates all the usual things you could expect from a five star spa, along with some special extras. Bali Leha is yet another place on Necker Island dedicated to the nourishment and revitalisation of your mind, body and soul.
Necker Island 's Beach House offers tennis courts and a ground floor bar, pool table and plenty of seating in front of a wide-screen television, whilst upstairs, there’s a table large enough to accommodate forty guests.
