Following a four-year closure and extensive renovations, Rosewood Little Dix Bay on Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands has reopened.
The 500-acre luxury property, which shuttered in 2016 for refurbishment, also sustained significant damage from Hurricane Irma in 2017.
The revamped Rosewood Little Dix Bay features 80 guestrooms, suites and villas, all of which have unobstructed ocean views. Accommodation types include the property’s Tree House Suites, which are inspired by Rosewood Little Dix Bay’s original stilt houses, as well as One-Bedroom Pool Suites with private plunge pools, Ocean View Junior Suites and One- and Two-Bedroom Suites.
For larger families and groups, the resort also offers the four-bedroom Villa Joy, two-bedroom Columbus House and three-bedroom Laurance House, each of which feature spacious living areas, kitchens and private pools.
The resort is home to four dining concepts, including the signature restaurant Reef House, which showcases a rotating menu of farm-to-fork cuisine, and tapas-style eatery Sugar Mill. Pavilion features an outdoor show kitchen, while the adjacent Rum Room is stocked with 107 rums from around the world.
The property’s Sense Spa is located cliffside. Other amenities: a two-tiered spa infinity pool, a fitness center and a revamped recreation program, comprising various water sports and outdoor activities and eight new tennis and pickleball courts.
The property’s main Pavilion Pool is located steps from the beach and offers food and beverage service from the Pavilion restaurant.
Guests at Rosewood Little Dix Bay are granted access to a variety of services and amenities, including a new butler service and a bespoke ocean arrival experience. Available via Rosewood’s new luxury catamarans, the ocean arrival includes a 20-minute sailing transfer from the airport in Tortola to the resort’s private dock on Virgin Gorda.
Also on offer is the property’s Rosewood Explorers children’s program, which includes a variety of activities, such as wildlife meet-and-greets at the resort’s on-site petting zoo, cooking classes that showcase locally grown ingredients and educational reef excursions.
American businessman and conservationist Laurance Rockefeller opened Little Dix Bay in 1964.
