Rosewood Little Dix Bay (Closes May 1, 2016 for renovations)

Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands

By Roger Cox, Editor

Secluded in its own bay, out of sight of development on the rest of the island, Little Dix provides a sense of total escape. Little Dix Bay HotelIts principal asset is a half-mile crescent of soft sand bordered by coconut palms and seagrape and protected by an offshore coral reef. The rooms, though somewhat set back in vividly colored tropical gardens, occupy a necklace of low buildings that follow the curve of the beach, so that no room is far from the sand. An open-air restaurant stands at the mid point, formed from four interconnected Polynesian pyramids. Behind it all rise low hills covered with dryland foliage of trees and shrubs (there's a hiking trail along the ridgetop for the adventurous).
The water beckons, with swimming, snorkeling, and sailing all available from the watersports center. There is also a fitness center and a cliff-top spa. Tennis players, meanwhile, can look forward to 7 courts (5 hard and 2 artificial grass), a fully stocked pro shop, player matching services, and some sort of clinic or round robin on weekdays in season. Those round robins often draw local residents, who can provide first-hand advice about where to eat and what to do on the island (a snorkeling trip through the boulders and grottoes of the Baths of Virgin Gorda is not to be missed). Peter Burwash International (PBI) pro Lucas Pluta has runs the tennis operation.
