Following a four-year closure to undergo comprehensive renovations and subsequent post-hurricane repairs, one of the territory’s single-largest employers, Rosewood Little Dix Bay Resort on Virgin Gorda, has finally reopened.
The resort, which was designed by New York-based company Meyer Davis, now boasts a total of 80 rooms which consists of 42 guestrooms, 35 suites, two beach houses and one hillside villa.
It also has six new tennis courts, spanning cement and artificial grass surfaces as well as two pickleball courts, a new butler service, and a new Rosewood Explorer’s children’s programme.
The resort guests are also now privy to an ocean arrival experience on Rosewood’s new luxury catamarans. In addition, guests will have the option of choosing from four dining concepts from the Reef House, Sugar Mill, Pavilion or Rum Room; have access to a state-of-the-art fitness centre; a spa and a two-tiered infinity pool.
Modern-day elements in surrounding natural environment
Management at the resort said the property has retained its original emphasis on celebrating the surrounding natural environment while introducing new modern-day elements.
“We are excited to welcome a new wave of ultra-luxury travellers as well as our adoring legacy guests to the reimagined Rosewood Little Dix Bay,” Managing Director of the resort Andreas Pade said following this week’s officially reopening.
“Over the last four years, an expert team of environmentalists, architects and designers has worked tirelessly to honour the resort’s storied past while incorporating modern amenities and comforts, creating a truly one-of-a-kind offering in the British Virgin Islands that will delight discerning travellers for generations to come,” Pade explained.
The resort was originally expected reopen in 2017 after closing in 2016 for renovations, but after being impacted by hurricanes Irma and Maria was forced to postpone the reopening date.
