Little Dix Bay
Virgin Gorda Hotels
In the absence of the commercialism that cushions one from the Caribbean, Little Dix Bay connects one to the surroundings. Cottages and guestrooms blend unobtrusively into the surrounding landscape; guests arriving by boat do not notice any apparent building lines, only white sand with Bohio huts as sunshades against a backdrop of sea grape trees and coconut palms. This attribute upholds founder Laurance Rockefeller's vision of a vacation hideaway that emulates a style of low-key luxury while embracing conservation and reverence for the environment.
My wife and I have just returned from Virgin Gorda and have to report that all is well at this extremely friendly and quiet island. We were fortunate to be able to stay at Little Dix Bay which is a wonderful resort to relax, recharge, reconnect and unwind from the very busy lives that we live in the New York area. LDB Resort is a great place for couples and families that are looking for a quiet resort that offers a full compliment of warm weather activities (except golf). As an avid golfer LDB is a refreshing way to vacation and actually do different things for a change. Snorkeling, diving, sailing, fishing are all available. Private boat trips are available as well as beach drops directly from the resort. The food at LDB is excellent, the outdoor Cocktail Lounge is always pleasant and staffed by very friendly locals. We especially enjoyed sharing information with Clinton, a 25 plus year employee and his counterpart Stedmen another long time employee at the lounge while meeting other guests from all over the world.
LDB'S Sunset cruise is also a must do!
There is a lot to do and see on VG but you have to plan well and use your time wisely. As we all know, vacation time moves quickly when you are in a special place. So do your homework and speak to everyone you can. If planned properly, you will really enjoy VG and will probably return again and again. We are going back for our 6th trip later in the fall or early 2012.
Hope this helps and safe travels. ( if you travel through PR, go carry on. They aren't very good with luggage)
