Looking to reaffirm its legacy as the Caribbean’s leading luxury resort, Rosewood Little Dix Bay enlisted OBMI as lead architect for its most sustainable, and resort-wide, upgrade since opening 50 years ago. The comprehensive, multi-million-dollar renovation will include the complete redesign of the resort’s guest rooms and suites, its three restaurants, and overall enhancements to the resort’s gardens and landscaping. As one of the most iconic resorts in the British Virgin Islands, Rosewood requested the redesign to be sensitive to the original Rockefeller appearance with new world amenities.
To provide a one-of-a-kind dining experience, OBMI redesigned the Beach Grill with a new floor plan that expanded seating areas to maximise the stunning panoramic views of Little Dix Bay. To elevate arrival by sea, OBMI designed a new open-air lounge to serve as a gathering area for guests, while also improving access to Little Dix Bay beach. For the accommodations, OBMI provided a new architectural design that modernised and upgraded the resort’s guest rooms by combining several rooms into larger and more luxurious suites. The resort’s accommodations will bring a new level of sophistication in keeping with the natural setting with the signature suites each featuring expansive terraces, while the hillside suites host private plunge pools offering beautiful views of Little Dix Bay.
While revitalising the iconic Rosewood Little Dix Bay Resort, OBMI’s Chairman states that the team was very conscious of building on the Rockefeller legacy, with the upgrade adding a layer of contemporary comfort and luxury repositioning and reviving one of the Caribbean’s classic resorts. The design palette uses a blend of natural materials throughout, with the architecture offering exciting new guest amenities adding to the unique personality of the resort.
