Summary

Cons

  • Level of luxury a tad underwhelming for the price
  • Exorbitant room and restaurant prices
  • Beach Grill not open for dinner (closes at 6 p.m.)
  • Only Beach Houses and Villas have in-room TVs (a pro for some!)

Bottom Line

The Rosewood Little Dix Bay is a luxury property located just north of Spanish Town. The jungle-meets-ocean setting makes it one of the most romantic spots on this sparsely populated island, and the thick tropical grounds allow for utmost tranquility and relaxation. The hotel is directly on a beautiful sandy beach, and most units are just a couple dozen yards from the water. Rooms have island-inspired decor with elegant wood furnishings, exposed stone walls, and wooden beams, but some may find the level of luxury to be underwhelming for the price. Beach Houses and Villas are a notch or two more luxurious, with wonderful extras that include private pools, full kitchens, flat-screen TVs in every room, Wii game consoles, and free use of golf carts to move around the property. The acclaimed spa with gorgeous views, the dozens of activities available, and the long list of exceptional freebies make this hotel a great high-end pick. But food is pretty mediocre and outrageously expensive, and service is subpar for the brand.

Location

On a beautiful, tranquil beach north of Spanish Town, the only city on Virgin Gorda

Map of Rosewood Little Dix Bay

The Rosewood Little Dix Bay is located directly on a half-mile sandy beach a two-minute drive north of Spanish Town. It is not as remote of a location as other properties on the island, but it is surrounded by lush tropical grounds that make it more intimate and give it a feel of seclusion. The easiest way to get there is by taking a ferry (the hotel provides water taxi service) from Beef Island’s airport. The hotel has a private dock, and the water access makes it all the more spectacular.

Virgin Gorda is small and sparsely populated, and the lack of an airport means it has managed to remain pretty untouched. There are few roads and some of the islands are separated by narrow isthmuses, so can be only reached by boat. The island is an active traveler’s paradise, with wonderful trails, great snorkeling spots and a wide array of water sports available. The nightlife and shopping scenes are pretty limited, but people come here to stretch out in the sun on one of the numerous sandy beaches scattered around the island. The best dining options are hotel restaurants, though there are a couple of interesting spots in Spanish Town.

  • 20-minute boat ride from the airport
  • 2-minute drive to Spanish Town
