Nestled in amongst the lush hills and isolated beaches of Virgin Gorda, the location of Little Dix Bay is unparalleled, and protected by a coral reef, it is a diver’s paradise.
Rosewood Little Dix Bay is currently closed and undergoing extensive refurbishment. The resort is due to re-open late in 2017, looking even more resplendent than before.
The hotel is comprised of 100 rooms, suites, and two and three bedroom cottages located predominately along the crescent shaped beach. The villas have private pools, and are ideal for families or groups of friends who are after the privacy of a private villa whilst reaping the benefits of the hotel's facilities.
There is a quiet swimming pool by the beach, and a fantastic spa perched dramatically on the cliff's edge overlooking the Sir Francis Drake Channel. As well as a range of treatments - including the signature Virgin Gorda Goat Milk & Honey Wrap - yoga, pilates and meditation are also on offer.
Whilst the hotel is the perfect place to absolutely nothing, without feeling even the tiniest bit guilty, there is also plenty to keep the more active amongst us entertained. Sailing, diving, snorkelling and water-skiing are all on offer, as well as glass bottom boat tours and day trips to nearby islands. There are also tennis courts at the hotel, with lessons available for those looking to up their game.
There are three restaurants at Little Dix Bay - The Sugar Mill, which serves eclectic Pan Asian and European cuisine; Pavilion, the open air restaurant that makes the most out of its beachfront location with delicious seafood, as well as live music and cocktails; and the Beach Grill for a quick bite.
The hotel has great children's facilities, which include a miniature Caribbean chattel house, a dress up area, arts and crafts centre and 'shipwreck' outdoor play area. Treasure hunts, nature walks and shell painting can also be arranged, and there is a Pirate Party every Monday whilst grown-ups tuck into their own cocktails.
Why we love it
There are seven beaches near the hotel that are only accessible by sea. The 'beach drops' allow you to explore the white sand and blue seas at your own pace and in privacy - why not take a picnic and spend the day exploring the coves.
