Reviewed 16 July 2014

Little Dix Bay is a delight. The beach is wonderful with some snorkeling. They offer daily boat trips to any other beach you want to snorkel. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The staff is just wonderful. The food is very good and it is close to town to enjoy the food options there too.

My husband and I stayed at Rosewood Little Dix Bay for a glorious 11 days in May 2014. We flew into beef island and we were greeted by two lovely people who worked for the resort and brought by van to a boat where we were greeted by the captain & promptly handed refreshing rum punch! The boat ride was amazing with amazing views approaching the resort! We were then brought to out beach cottage (111) which was perfect & an upgrade:) the location of our room was perfect for us as it was steps to the beach, amazing views, quiet and peaceful. Other reviews have mentioned the walk to the restaurants, this was fine for us as we enjoyed every step. The beach is huge!!!! We felt as though we were on a private beach. The use of snorkeling gear, paddle boards etc. is great. We loved paddle boarding and visiting the adorable sea turtles!!! We had breakfast included which was great, fresh,healthy food, anything you could want. We took advantage of the phenomenal gym & tennis courts everyday. The service is amazing but not intrusive. A couple times a day a staff member would make their way down to our end of the beach offering frozen grapes, cold water, cold towels, which were all very refreshing they were also happy to take drink orders. The drinks were pricey, which we were aware of in advance. We had gone to the local grocery store (15 min walk) for beach provisions. We ate dinner at the resort a few nights and it was good. The first night we arrived it was around 5pm & we were starving. It was Asian night at the pavilion and it was excellent. We ate at the bar one night, the burger was good, the cucumber margarita was outstanding and I am still craving one! Our dinner at the Sugarmill was perfection with great food, service and atmosphere. I would recommend venturing off the resort as there are other great restaurants on this magical island! We did two beach drops which were so much fun. It was very choppy one day so the boat was only going to Savannah Bay which is the next cove from LDB. We had a lobster salad picnic lunch and we were the only people there! So fun & surreal. Two hours later the resort picked us up. We also were dropped at George Dog for 4 hours, this was the best!! Snorkeling, the beach, it was what dreams and romantic movies are made of! The daily afternoon tea was the perfect snack just before heading in to get ready for dinner. I am a big Coffee drinker, the coffee served at the resort is outstanding! We had a treatment at the spa, it was fine. While the spa is gorgeous, it seemed very overpriced and to be truthfull, when at the spa, it was the only time I felt a level of snottiness. The woman at the desk was a bit rude (the only rude staff member we encountered). I actually had another spa service booked and canceled it because I felt uncomfortable and felt I'd rather spend the time with my amazing husband on the beach. We did sneak up to the yoga pad to watch sunrise. Overall we had great weather, on our last full day it rained like I have never seen! It was a total wash out and we did have some leaking in our room, unfortunate but not a big deal. The resort handled it wonderfully & made everything right. We can't wait to go back! It was expensive and likely not something we can do every year and maybe not for 11 days but, we will be back!!!

Room Tip: Beach cottage 111

This was our first trip to Virgin Gorda and probably the best chill, beach, snorkel spot I've been to so far. The bungalow style room and super easy beach access were very convenient and spacious. Lots of trees down to the beach keep you cool while you read or nap under a hut on a super comfortable chair with waiter service of good beach food and drink. 10 steps into clear blue tropical water with beautiful reef on one side of the inlet and sea grass on the other where sea turtles graze while you watch. Great food and service and a very good spa. The spa area is quiet with an infinity pool on a cliffside overlooking the ocean. Great fitness facility and plenty to do or not do depending on what you want. The complimentary boat drop to several nearby beaches and reefs makes for potentially new experiences each day. Gotta go to the Baths which is a "one of kind" place only 10 minutes taxi ride away. Been back 2 days and can't wait to return. If you're looking to Chill this is the place to go!

This is one of the best resort hotels you can stay at! Service is great - the employees go out of their way to help you, always have a smile, and do whatever needs done. They have free shuttle service to 6 other beaches to snorkel, swim etc. There are turtles to see when you snorkel near the docks!

From the minute we landed at the Virgin Gorda airport we knew we were in for a treat of a vacation. The people from Little Dix were waiting for us with cold towels and drinks and making us feel like old friends. We arrived at our room and stayed in the same room category, beach cottages; pure heaven steps from the beach.

We just can't say enough about this resort. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms are understated elegance, the spa luxorous with breathtaking views.

We will definately be returning for a third trip.

Room Tip: All the room categories look wonderful. Most of the rooms on the beach.

We stayed in a cottage on the ocean, steps from the water. Great lounging area on our porch and on the beach. We loved the free daily beach drops and snorkeling with turtles right on our own bay.

There were families, older couples, not very many young people.

The resort's restaurants were good but I'd recommend trying other options on the island, especially as you can't see sunset from the resort and you can get gorgeous sunsets from some of the seaside restaurants.

The included breakfast is fantastic.

Rosewood Little Dix Bay is currently closed for a comprehensive renovation and is scheduled to re-open in late 2017. The iconic Rosewood Little Dix Bay is currently closed for a comprehensive, multi-million dollar restoration, which will be the most substantial beautification project since the resort was founded by Laurance S. Rockefeller over 50 years ago. The restoration will include the complete redesign of the resort’s guestrooms and suites, its three restaurants and overall enhancements to the resort’s gardens and landscaping. New York City-based Meyer Davis Studio will lead the restoration, working alongside Miami-based architectural firm OBMI. Together these agencies will honor Laurance S. Rockefeller’s unique vision of a luxurious hideaway set amidst the pristine backdrop of Virgin Gorda. The renewal will bring about a new level of sophistication in keeping with the natural setting, whilst introducing brand new signature suites for the ultimate in relaxation and style. A rebuilt Beach Grill will offer a one-of-a-kind beach dining experience, while the iconic Pavilion and Sugar Mill buildings will remain intact but will feature extended indoor/outdoor dining areas. Guests will also enjoy an elevated arrival experience and the resort’s vibrant tropical gardens will be enhanced with new lighting, signage and improved access to Little Dix Bay beach. The renovation will also bring the addition of new restaurant concepts for The Pavilion, Beach Grill and Sugar Mill; new world-class amenities; elevated service standards and an increased focus on sustainability. Upon reopening towards the end of 2017, Rosewood Little Dix Bay will reaffirm its legacy as the Caribbean’s leading luxury resort. ... more   less
