“Best vacation so far”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Rosewood Little Dix Bay Resort is truly amazing. We were greeted with Ice cool lemon grass scented towels and rum drink at the boat which was a refreshing way to start a vacation. The staff was amazing waiting on us hand and foot. There are no locks on any of the doors which was a nice surprise. The beach in front of our rooms was perfect for swimming with the sea turtles and lounging. A short boat ride from the resort delivered us at the Bath's... A must see. One day we attended the hotel beach BBQ located near the Baths complete with kettle drums and a game of Limbo. The food is amazing and every meal was perfect. I will be back for sure.

My husband and I just spent 7 beautiful days in paradise. This quiet and secluded resort offers everything one can imagine. From the fabulous staff to the excuisite food; I can not imagine a better place to rest, relax and vacation. We ate at all three restaurants, ordered room service, ordered from the beach staff and also enjoyed an afternoon at the spa. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were surrounded with joyful smiles.

Room Tip: We were fortunate to have been given beach villa #25. It is located in the center of the resort. The...

Rosewood Little Dix Bay Resort is just perfect. Beautiful property. Complimentary afternoon tea is nice. All non-motorized sports are complimentary. Fly into Tortola and take the resort boat to the resort (15 mins). Not crowded and staff bends over backward to delight you.

We went with a group of friends and had a terrific time! While we've all been married 20+ years, there were plenty of honeymooners enjoying themselves as well. Hotel staff and concierge were extremely helpful and went out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. We went on a few excursions (scuba diving) and had a blast. We will return!

We stayed here on our honeymoon for 7 nights. Absolutely beautiful. Landscaping was lush and the water was a beautiful clear blue. Staff was more than accommodating. Service was excellent. The food was delicious and the breakfast buffet was amazing. The spa was relaxing and had great views of the ocean. It was very relaxing but there are plenty of things to do if you want to. Would definitely recommend staying here. We couldn't say enough great things about this place. I can't wait to go back some day. I wish I was sitting on that beach now!

We spent 3 nights here after getting married in St. Thomas, and wish it could have much longer. The staff, amenities, activities and setting made this the most amazing trip. We saw sea turtles everyday in the bay, and every view was like a postcard. Our favorite part was the beach drops! This is a complimentary service provided by the hotel where you have the option to be dropped at 11 different beaches/snorkel sites, including the Baths, from 1-4 hours at a time. You can request a packed lunch and they give you snorkel gear and a beach umbrella, and you have a completely remote beach all to yourself for hours. This is definitely the most romantic place we've ever been, and it caters to couples amazingly.

Room Tip: All the rooms seem to have similar views. We were in a garden view room, and we were able to see the...

My wife and I stayed at the Rosewood on Little Dix Bay for 2 short nights, I wish it would have been longer. This was easily the best vacation experience the two of us have ever had. The service provided was just simply amazing.

Upon arrival, we were greeted by a gentleman who showed us to the front desk, and gave a quick overview of the resort. We arrived at the resort quite a ways before check in time, however they were still able to get us a room, and we were checked in and ready to go in 15 minutes. Most of the 15 minute time is them explaining the many incredible services the property provides to its guests while we sipped fruit punch and cooled ourselves with the citrus cooled cloth.

Upon entering the room, we were very pleased. We had a base room, which was not overly large, but was extremely nice and tastefully decorated, complete with bose stereo system playing the most relaxing music I have ever heard. The beds were very comfortable, with nightly turn down service. The rooms come with free wifi for one device as well. The rooms do not have televisions, so this is the only technology you will be using during the trip.

The mini-refrigerator was stocked with several cokes and waters, along with Ting, an island drink, which are all complimentary. You also were provided another couple of bottles of water per day.

In addition to the service, the resort has a great number of activities for its guests. There were complimentary kayak and Hobie Cat sailboats, snorkel tours and equipment, beach drops, and other miscellaneous activities.

We did a beach drop with a picnic lunch, that was simply amazing. For a fee, they pack a lunch for you in a backpack, complete with everything you need to enjoy it. You then board a boat and are dropped off at the beach of your choice. We were the only people on "our" beach most of our time there, which was really neat, and we enjoyed our lunch as well as some snorkeling and swimming.

We also ate at every restaurant on the property, and all were great. The Pavilion and the Sugar Mill were both great, with impeccable service. From them using your name during conversation (without asking it), to them giving just the right amount of attention, the experience at these two places was simply great. The food was excellent as well, but as good as it was, the service was even better.

The grounds of this hotel are fantastic, the rooms incredible, the amenities amazing, however what sets this hotel apart from others is the service. Every staff member truly makes you feel like you are the only thing that is important to them, and you really get the feeling they will do anything for your happiness. As I mentioned in the headline, I really wish I could give it 6 stars, or give 4 stars to every hotel that I have ever given 5 stars to. This place was clearly above them all. I really cannot wait to visit the Rosewood, Little Dix Bay again.

A rebuilt Beach Grill will offer a one-of-a-kind beach dining experience, while the iconic Pavilion and Sugar Mill buildings will remain intact but will feature extended indoor/outdoor dining areas. Guests will also enjoy an elevated arrival experience and the resort’s vibrant tropical gardens will be enhanced with new lighting, signage and improved access to Little Dix Bay beach. The renovation will also bring the addition of new restaurant concepts for The Pavilion, Beach Grill and Sugar Mill; new world-class amenities; elevated service standards and an increased focus on sustainability.
