The “skyline” of Rosewood Little Dix Bay is designed to look like palm trees swaying in the breeze, Pade points out, with each roof shaped slightly differently. All of the resort buildings are designed to blend into the landscape.
The rooms have a calming beachy feel, and not just because through the windows is a view of palm trees and endless blue-green water. There are retro photos of beachgoers, driftwood sculptures and stone walls.
Sugar Mill serves small plates from an open-air stone mill with wide views of the bay. Meals at the Pavilion come with views of both the water and the open kitchen, where the chefs cook up elevated takes on Caribbean dishes.
Bartenders at the Rum room can mix up any cocktail you crave, including the classics like fizzes and highballs, but the standout here is the collection of more than 100 different labels of rare and aged rums.
Head to the resort’s tranquil spa, set on a hill with views down to the water. Each treatment room has a private terrace, and there’s a two-tiered infinity pool surrounded by greenery.
