In the British Virgin Islands, the 100-room Rosewood Little Dix Bay in Virgin Gorda has closed for a complete renovation that will last 18 months. The luxury resort, which was opened by Laurance S. Rockefeller in 1964, will include a complete redesign of the resort's guest rooms and suites, its three restaurants and the grounds.
Among the enhancements to the property will be the addition of signature suites; the Beach Grill will be rebuilt; signage, lighting and access to the beach will be upgraded; and the indoor/outdoor dining areas at the Pavilion and Sugar Mill buildings will be extended. Meyer Davis Studio is overseeing the refurbishment project, and OBMI, a Miami-based architectural firm, will create the new structure of the Beach Grill and redesign of the resort's accommodations. At press time, no further details were available.
