Rosewood Little Dix Bay

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 April 2012

This was the most amazing vacation I've ever had with my children. We had a rocky arrival due to some miscommunications both at the fault of myself and the hotel. I was stressed. Yet with every step I took, the ambiance and positive, relaxing vibe of Little Dix Bay melted away my stress. Yes, the location is incomparable and the resort facilities are beautiful, but the staff truly and sincerely made us feel like family. By the end of our stay, the only regret I had is how I handled our arrival and that we had to leave after a week. Derrick, Duncan, Avery, Arthur, Susan, the woman who gave me my mani/pedi at the spa, Cynthia, Fernando, and "Mila's good driver" (he drove the cart and I'm embarrassed to say that i forgot his name but he always remembered us and was so sweet to my 2 year old), and yes, Adam too - I sincerely THANK YOU. Little Dix Bay made our cares completely melt away and that could not have happened without all of you. Thank you for treating us so well and making sure our spring break was as special as your beautiful resort.

If you want to reconnect with your family and loved ones - GO TO LITTLE DIX.
If you want to see amazing isolated beaches with a lovely picnic lunch and perfectly executed boat drop service, GO TO LITTLE DIX.
If you want to have peace and happiness in the most beautiful setting, GO TO LITTLE DIX.
If you want your cares to melt away and focus on nothing at all aside from relaxing and enjoying the beauty of mother nature with a staff who will bend over backwards to keep you happy, GO TO LITTLE DIX.


My Recommendations:
1. If anything goes wrong with your room or your reservation plan/rate, be patient and follow Derrick's lead. He will keep you calm and comfortable. The hotel, the location, the staff, the visit is worth it. Don't stress like I did. Managers, Duncan and Adam will work everything out if you talk to them. The local hotel staff is understandably loyal to the many families who are returning guests and there is a bit of a disconnect between them and the general Rosewood reservation staff. Lesson learned and completely understood. The management (Duncan AND Adam) were beyond fair, patient, and friendly with me to rectify the situation.
2. If you need a cab, ask for Andy or his son Sandy or his daughter Mandy. :)
3. If you want a really great place for kids dinner, go to On the Rocks Cafe.
4. If you want a really great grown up dinner, go to Georgio Fine Dining right above On the Rocks.
5. Go snorkeling at Mountain Trunk, order the picnic and take your kids. It is fairly isolated and so beautiful.
6. Do the hike to Savanna Bay at the very end of the resort (near room 71). It it LONG but so worth the hike in the end.
7. If you have kids btwn ages 2-8, you MUST book Captain Keith for a pirate sail.
8. If you want a workout, go through the spa, to the left of the pool and run the stairs down to the isolated beach. Killer.
9. If Little Dix is lucky enough to get him back, do tennis lessons with Arthur Hicks. My son woke at 7 am on the day of our departure to play tennis with Arthur one last time (he never had much interest in tennis prior to this).
10. Just go.

My hope is that Rosewood Resorts knows how lucky they are to have such an accommodating and warm staff on their team. Thanks to all at Little Dix who made our stay so special.

Sincerely,
Kira

WOW.. What a great vacation at Little Dix Bay. From the pick up in Tortola to the drop of at the dock. Then picked up and driven around showing us the property. As you enter your beach front room with the amazing Boze radio playing soft tropical music. The view is breathtaking... We loved the morning stroll to breakfast the afternoon tea. Gift shop was amazing with fine cigars, a plus for my husband. The beach was white and the water clear blue/green. Large sea turtles in the distance. It truly was a trip of a life time!

Room Tip: Beach front period!

My husband and I eloped to Little Dix in February and we both agree that it was not only a perfect vacation/honeymoon but it was the perfect place for a quiet ceremony. If you are from the states you need to get on "island time" but once you do you will enjoy the laid back pace. We had the resort help us with the marriage license and they arranged a wonderful officiant. Our suite was spacious and quiet. While we were there, it seemed like there were alot of couples and not many children. Food and service is above average. By the end of our stay we felt like "friends" with many of the staff. Rent a car and tour the island, the roaming goats are interesting. We also rented a boat for the day and got to see the island from the water. Well worth the price.

We were in Virgin Gorda for our honeymoon in 2009. I have been to a lot of beaches, even just returned from Zanzibar, and I would still rate Little Dix Bay at the top of many! The water is idyllic and the sands are so white! Our favorite thing were the complimentary boat drops. The resort has a boat and will take you to any surrounding beaches on smaller islands with an umbrella and picnic lunch if you want one. We were able to do some amazing snorkelling because of this at no extra cost.

You can go out on a sunfish or kayak at anytime and see the sea turtles that live in the bay!

We would have loved more food options as there was only one restaurant open while we were there. But the food we had was great. We were also there during the low season, so it was very nice and quiet with no kids around!

I would definitely recommend an ocean front room as it was 10 steps to the sand, but the garden views weren't far behind us!

Over the years my wife and I have visited most of the top resorts in the Caribbean (including places like Cap Juluca in Anguilla, Curtain Bluff in Antigua, Nisbet Plantation in Nevis, etc.) Little Dix Bay beats them all! It has a beautiful 1/2 mile white sand beach on a lovely protected bay, ensuring calm water. Padded lounges and shade huts on the beach are abundant and never crowded. Snorkeling off the shore is interesting with lots of fish on close-in reefs, plus some large, resident hawksbill and green sea turtles and rays. In addition, they offer complimentary drop-offs at other nearby beaches, and daily snorkeling and diving trips. Accommodations are quite comfortable, with wonderful mattresses and spacious modern bathrooms, and all are beachfront with a private patio or deck. They have two restaurants providing high quality food and imaginative menus, plus a beach grill open for lunch. The breakfast buffet has almost every breakfast item you can imagine, including an omelet station and fresh smoothie station. Their once-a-week dinner Grand Buffet is to die for, and includes grilled or cold Anegada lobster. (The food is expensive a la carte, so get the meal plan.) This is preceded by a manager's cocktail party with abundant and delicious hors d'ouevres. What really sets Little Dix Bay apart from other resorts is the service. Everyone on the staff is totally dedicated to helping the guests enjoy their stay. They are always friendly and greet each guest by name. There is frequently a staff person on the beach, providing ice water, cold towels, frozen grapes, sorbet, etc. Upon arrival, you are met with a cold drink (ordered by the driver from the airport based on your preference) and taken to your room, where you are checked in. You are asked the most convenient time for you to have your room serviced by housekeeping, and they show up as requested. This obviously starts at the top with Duncan, the GM. One day, after a brief shower, he was walking on the beach picking up damp towels and checking with guests to see if they needed anything. A short time later, I saw him at the beach grill, walking from table to table chatting with the guests and filling empty wine and water glasses. There are so many small things about the service that are done so well, and they add up to a great vacation experience. This is the one Caribbean resort that we will return to again and again. Don't miss it.

Room Tip: The resort is spread out along the beach, with each room a beachfront. Choose rooms 1 through 4 if...

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
