About Us

ABOUT ROSEWOOD LITTLE DIX BAY

An eco-friendly resort ahead of its time, Rosewood Little Dix Bay has always featured the natural environment at the heart of its design. One of the first Caribbean resorts to promote sustainable luxury, the beachside retreat has welcomed guests to a world of undiluted tropical splendor for over half a century.Rosewood Little Dix Bay is situated on one of the Caribbean’s finest shorelines—beyond a colorful barrier reef, where gentle blue waters meet the powder-white sands of a stunning half-mile crescent beach. The luxury Caribbean resort is surrounded by the untamed wilderness of Virgin Gorda, an island of volcanic origin featuring rugged hills, quiet coves and unspoiled beaches.

OUR STORY

A haven of tranquility, Rosewood Little Dix Bay offers an escape from the ordinary. Since 1964, guests have been captivated by this truly authentic, quintessentially Caribbean island experience.When Christopher Columbus came upon Virgin Gorda in 1493, he saw in the island’s shape a portly woman in repose and thus named the island “Virgin Gorda” (“Fat Virgin”). To this day, the island remains largely undeveloped—an unspoiled paradise of verdant hills, secluded coves and beautiful beaches surrounded by the clear blue waters of the Sir Francis Drake Channel.When Laurance Rockefeller first encountered Virgin Gorda, the island was home to a struggling agricultural community. In 1958, the conservationist began buying up land with the dream of establishing a resort in harmony with nature. He chose a sandy crescent bay he dubbed the "wilderness beach" for the site of his environmentally minded endeavor. When it opened in 1964, Little Dix Bay represented a new style of island retreat. The hideaway featured cottages tucked unobtrusively into the surrounding landscape just steps from a pristine white-sand beach that would quickly earn a reputation as one of the finest in the world.In 1993, Little Dix Bay joined Rosewood Hotels & Resorts. The resort continued to draw legions of loyal guests who appreciated its understated approach to luxury and respect for the environment.Following its golden anniversary, the legendary property closed to undergo a multi-million-dollar renovation. In keeping with Rockefeller’s original vision, the reimagined resort is still composed of a limited number of structures positioned to follow the lines of the landscape. Local cultural motifs and indigenous materials have been incorporated into the resort’s architecture, and the interiors reflect the spirit of the mid-century modern design movement which prevailed at the time of the resort’s inception.

Best of the Best

Rosewood Little Dix Bay is renowned for its tranquil location, offering a slice of tropical life far from the ordinary. Guestrooms, suites and villas are tucked amid vibrant gardens along a half-mile stretch of sandy beach — each is a stylish blend of island comfort and modern convenience. Take advantage of the watersports and activities, from snorkeling and Sunfish sailing to garden tours and hiking. Sense®, a Rosewood Spa, is a spectacular place to unwind.

Hotel Tip

The resort offers complimentary Beach Drops, water taxis to seven local beaches, and can prepare a gourmet picnic lunch for you to enjoy in luxurious seclusion.

Beautiful resort, excellent service

By: Team Saunders


Reviewed on: 14 Jul 2014

We couldn't really have asked for a nicer place to spend our honeymoon. The rooms are very comfortable and clean with beautiful views of the bay and quick access to the beach (generally just a short walk down a palm tree-lined path). Little Dix is suitable for both a romantic getaway or family vacation.  There are plenty of activities for people of any age including dingy sailing, kayaking, paddle boarding, hiking, garden tours, tennis, and yoga.  The resort sets up day trips to other beaches and there is a Dive BVI located right at the resort so you can schedule a snorkeling or scuba trip.  The spa is amazing.  It is set in the cliffs above the sea and there is an infinity pool that draws you in to gaze at the view.  Above all, the service at Little Dix is by far the best I've ever encountered.  Each guest is treated like family and everyone knows your name by the time you leave.  I would love to come back here.

My wife and I recently celebrated our 25th anniversary at Little Dix Bay with our two teenage daughters. We loved the resort. The staff was warm and hospitable, catering to our every need. The beach was beautiful, and my wife says the spa is her favorite in the whole world. One unique feature of the resort is the availability of Boston Whalers to take you to remote, off property beaches. This gave us a unique way to reach the Baths, a must see attraction in Virgin Gorda. We look forward to visiting again in the future.
