Christopher Columbus once thought Virgin Gorda resembled a supine lady from afar, but the similarities end there. Once you step on this spot in the British Virgin Islands, you’ll be impressed with the finest services and luxurious accommodations that complement the lushness of the island. And, just beyond a colorful barrier reef, lapped by gentle blue waters, lies the gently curving crescent beach of Rosewood Little Dix Bay. This resort, perched on a hilltop overlooking sugar-white sands and swaying palms is a paradise of tropical style accommodations with handcrafted furnishing made of indigenous woods.
Built by environmentalist Laurance Rockefeller almost 50 years ago, the resort still blends beautifully into the surroundings: the stone walls, tile floors, and wooden ceiling beams seem to grow right out of the landscape. This Caribbean old-timer has been completely updated, and now offers six luxurious villas with private pool.
And, while other resorts have large infinity pools; this place has an infinity sea, with schooners threatening to sail right off the horizon.
In addition to the spectacular beaches, guests can enjoy great food, tennis, watersports and more – all in a lush, secluded wilderness setting. Also, shops and bars of Spanish Town are about a cab ride away from here.
One visit, and you’ll understand why Andrew Harper’s Hideaway Report has named Little Dix Bay one of the top-rated resorts in the entire Caribbean.
