The most iconic resort in the British Virgin Islands has completed a long-awaited comeback on Virgin Gorda.
Luxury brand Rosewood has reopened its signature Little Dix Bay resort, marking the culmination of a multimillion-dollar effort to transform the property — one that overcame Hurricane Irma in the process.
Rosewood Little Dix Bay’s official opening comes Jan. 6 — and it’s already been operating for the last few days, according to its Web site.
Rosewood Little Dix Bay, which closed in 2015 to embark on a dramatic re-imagination of the property, is almost an entirely new property.
New York-based design team Meyer Davis led the makeover, which meant the creation of 80 brand-new guestrooms, suites and villas, according to the British Virgin Islands Tourist Board.
That’s along with four different dining concepts: the Caribbean-focused Sugar Mill; a “wholesome slow food” eatery called Pavilion; the farm-to-table Reef House and the Rum Room rum bar, which is “dedicated to the liquid gold of empires, adventurers and buccaneers,” the property said.
The latter will feature cocktails from the resort’s formative years in the 1960s and 1970s and what Rosewood Little Dix Bay is calling “an extensive library of rare and aged from from around the world.”
It’s a dramatic rebirth for the resort, one that has instantly made the new-look Rosewood Little Dix Bay one of the hottest openings of 2020.
What hasn’t changed? A dramatic setting on 500-acres abutting one of the most beautiful beaches anywhere in the Caribbean — the site that first drew Laurance Rockefeller to the property in the 1960s – and brought a half-century of legendary guests, too — including Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip.
Rosewood Little Dix Bay has long been the crown jewel of the company’s Caribbean portfolio, one that now includes the new Rosewood Baha Mar and the in-development Rosewood Half Moon Bay in Antigua.
