We have been to many of the carribean islands, stayed at the Ritz Carlton in Grand Cayman and St Thomas, but this takes the cake. If you are looking for a secluded place, a pampering staff, and great food this is it. From the time we stepped off of the 6 seater double prop Cape Air plane at the Virgin Gorda International Airport (VIJ) (Spanish Town), we were greeted by two of the staff that loaded our luggage, extended cold water bottles, and scented cold wet towels, we knew it was going to be good. Rosewood LIttle Dix Bay is literally 5 minutes from the airport (if you choose to fly into Spanish Town. Otherwise, you fly into a neighboring island and the Rosewood's own boat will come pick you up and brick you back for $65.00/per person/per way. (We elected to fly straight in). The hotel's 120 rooms are spread between about 20-25 villa buildings, some are single story, some are two story, but each contain about 4 units. We stayed in one of the buildings closest to the beach and it was awesome. 20 steps from our sliding door to the sand and 20 more steps to the water, the villas are separated from the beach by trees and vegetation but it is open so the views are awesome. The resort is very linear (see the resort map on the Rosewood website) so they offer complimentary golf cart shuttles back and forth to wherever you want to go. We used the Sense Spa, played tennis on the artificial grass courts, and ate a drank alot. This by far is the best place we have ever been!

stayed 6 nights here in the off season (late October) we may have been the only people at the hotel for a few nights. It was quiet and relaxing. This hotel is about 15 minutes away from town, and we rented a cab almost every day. The cab rides got pricey, the ride was hilly, steep, and the roads were windy. The best bet would be to rent a car. This is a pretty mountainous area, and a steep walk to the beach at the resort. Most of the time we were the only ones on the beach. There really was not much else to do at the resort, and it is pretty remote, unless you are in extremely good shape, and up for a hilly trek, you would not be able to walk to anywhere else close. Nice hotel, with a nice staff, and a clean room, and a nice beach.
