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. The property is a great choice for couples and honeymooners who want to have secluded beach picnics and relax in the Caribbean sun.

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 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.

If you are planning a Caribbean honeymoon, the hotel has a luxurious two-bedroom villa and a three-bedroom villa, both situated on the west end of the resort's beach. These waterfront villas overlook the sea and each have a private pool, outdoor showers and a dining pavilion with barbecue area.

The Spa

The Spa is set on top of a hill overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Spa therapists employ current therapeutic practices as well as some progressive concepts that incorporate indigenous plants from Virgin Gorda. The unique spa can arrange treatments under the stars, on the beach or in your room, giving you many ways to relax on your romantic island getaway.

Honeymooners can indulge in the Cliff Spa Day Suite, a luxurious private spa hideaway with spectacular views of the neighboring islands, a secluded beach below and an intimate dining area. The spa suite can be booked for periods of up to eight hours. For ultimate indulgence, complete your romantic day with a private torch-lit dinner on the beach.

Many of the island activities are complimentary, including water-skiing, snorkeling gear & lessons, use of Sunfish sailboats and kayaks, guided snorkel tours, tennis, fitness and nightly movies. Other activities offered for a fee include sailing, sunset cocktail cruise, PADI-certified scuba diving and instruction, glass-bottom boat tours and fishing.


The Pavilion is an open-air restaurant that serves breakfast and lunch buffets daily, as well as an eclectic American/Continental ala carte menu for dinner. The Beach Grill serves casual American dishes for lunch.

The Sugar Mill is an intimate restaurant situated just steps from the beach. It serves fresh local seafood as well as grilled steaks and chops.

For lunch, ask the staff to prepare a gourmet picnic which you can take with you so that you don't have to leave the beach.
