What we love
An understated American style luxury retreat situated just beyond a colourful barrier reef.
The spectacular geological formation of untamed hills and isolated beaches of Virgin Gorda play host to the timeless retreat of Rosewood Little Dix Bay. Located within 500 acres of natural gardens, with half a mile of golden sands softly lapped by gentle blue waters, this is a Caribbean destination where fine dining, beautifully appointed accommodation and delectable views are all on offer. With three restaurants and a bar, six tennis courts and two swimming pools, and the fantastic Sense, a Rosewood Spa and state of the art fitness centre available, there is plenty to keep you occupied during your Caribbean holiday.
Nestled amid lush gardens and shaded footpaths along a half-mile crescent beach, the 80 rooms, suites and villas at Little Dix Bay offer a stylish blend of island charm, comfort and convenience. Each accommodation is just steps from the long sandy beach, and is beautifully decorated to reflect the tranquil ocean feeling throughout. There are two room types on offer, the Ocean View Cottages and the Beach Front Cottages, both with spacious bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms, ocean views, furnished patios and dedicated butler service.
The suites have five different categories to choose from, including one and two bedroom, junior, tree-house and pool suites, all complete with spacious bedrooms, separate living areas, one or two bathrooms featuring indoor or outdoor showers and soaking tubs, garden patios, butler service and ocean views, with some suites boasting their own private plunge pools.
There are three exclusive villas at Little Dix Bay; Columbus House, Laurance House and Villa Joy, all benefiting from luxurious accommodation, spacious terraces, private pools, butler service and stunning ocean views. Columbus has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, a full kitchen with separate living area, outdoor patio, private pool, direct beach access and beautiful views of the ocean and the rest of the resort. Laurance is a three bedroom beach house with three bathrooms, living area and kitchen, dining gazebo, private pool, outdoor terrace and magnificent views of the bay. Finally, the exceptional Villa Joy is located in the most private part of the resort, enjoying spectacular panoramic views of Little Dix Bay and the nearby islands from its elevated position. With four en-suite bedrooms, an over-sized living and dining room, a powder room, a dining pavilion with barbecue area and private pool, this villa offers something special and is perfect for families or small groups.
There are three restaurants at the hotel; Pavilion, Reef House and Sugar Mill. The open-air Pavilion is at the heart of the resort and serves up Indian inspired cuisine and magnificent views of Little Dix Bay. For a more contemporary twist, modern Caribbean dishes are on the menu at the romantic Sugar Mill Restaurant, with its beautiful open-air setting and panoramic ocean views. For something more laid back, Reef House has a relaxed ambiance and beautiful ocean vistas with farm to table style cuisine. For a refreshing cocktail or three, head over to the Rum Room, a delightful bar offering the perfect Caribbean tipples to tingle your taste-buds.
For the more active guests there are watersports aplenty, including sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, water skiing, snorkelling, motor boats, fitness centre, tennis, garden tours, hiking trails and complimentary beach drop at nearby beaches. A stay at Little Dix wouldn't be complete without an adventurous excursion around the island on a private yacht charter or glass bottom boat. For some well deserved pampering, a visit to Sense, the in house spa, is an absolute must. Overlooking the rest of the resort below, the spa features a unique two tier infinity swimming pool, outdoor relaxation area and hilltop yoga platform with spectacular ocean views. The eight treatment rooms wind their way through the spa's lush tropical gardens and offer a range of massages, facials and more.
Little Dix Bay is a five-minute drive from Virgin Gorda Airport (VIJ), which is served by Cape Air. Alternatively, the resort can be reached by taking a seamless 20-minute boat transfer from Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport, also known as Tortola Beef Island Airport. The resort provides catamaran service from Tortola.
