Overview

Longtime Caribbean favorite on the beach with a splurge-worthy spa, pool and cottage-style accommodations

The Look

Rosewood Little Dix Bay, in the BVI, is a perennial choice for honeymooners, but it also delivers bliss for divers, sailors and families seeking the good life. Bookended by a three-quarter-mile white sand beach on one side and lush green hills on the other, the resort is as pretty as it is private. Rooms have a coastal bungalow feel and free beach drops mean you’re never more than a short boat ride away from a secluded inlet with your name on it.

Bed and Bath

Cottages are set back from the crescent beach, shrouded in palm fronds and seagrape trees. The rooms are simple — exposed white or dark wood beam ceilings, tile floors, white linens, cane furniture — as if designed to propel you outdoors. There are chairs on the decks of the treehouse cottages, and hammocks slung below. Rooms are TV-free, but there’s a library full of beach reads and board games, plus two computers, in the great room.

Beyond

Activities abound, from a well-regarded tennis club to dive excursions and seasonal fitness retreats. The landscaped pool decks deserve time, too. If the main pool is full of kids, stroll up to the spa, where the two-tier infinity pool catches clifftop breezes and coconut cocktails are served right from the shell. The Sugar Mill restaurant is for date nights; the Beach Grill and the Pavilion are more casual. Make sure to try a dash of Venita’s Hot Pepper Sauce for a Caribbean-style kick — and don’t forget to thank Ms. Venita Chapman, its creator and a longtime staff member, in person.

Beautiful little oasis

We were married here several years ago and have been dreaming of returning. Looking forward to their reopening. Gorgeous grounds and welcoming smiles abound. The beach was beautiful and the food was exquisite. Highly enjoyed by all our friends, including the charter the staff helped arrange. I have nothing but accolades for this property and can't believe I haven't posted a review

Simply Amazing!

We were here on a company trip and I couldn't have gone to a better place. The food was excellent and the service was even better. We stayed in a bongolo and had fresh coconuts straight from the palms around our villa. Wow what an amazing experience.

Great Location

We spent one night here back in March of 2014 as we were waiting to check into our vacation home on the island and it did not disappoint. The location is great and the beach is absolutely beautiful. Lots of water toys outside of your room. The service was fast, efficient and friendly. Lots of good food served in the restaurants.
