A romantic island getaway fronted by a beautiful sandy beach, Rosewood Little Dix Bay is a unique luxury resort that attracts vacationers looking for a place to get away from their busy schedules. Located on Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands, the resort has a coral reef just off the beach. The reef is great for snorkeling and also serves as a barrier that makes the water in the bay calm for swimming year-round.
In addition to the resort's own beach, visitors can catch a private water taxi to thirteen other secluded local beaches where you will find many soft adventure vacation activities such as diving, snorkeling, sailing and hiking.
Cottages and guestrooms
Cottages and guestrooms at the Little Dix Bay resort have been built unobtrusively into the surrounding landscape blending in with the trees, gardens, coconut palms and white sand. Most of the 93 guest rooms and 4 one-bedroom suites offer ultimate privacy since they are nestled among sea grape trees and are not visible from the water. Interiors and bathrooms are decorated with bright pastel colors and handcrafted furniture.
