By 2020 Virgin Gorda is expected to have two of its signature resorts—Rosewood Little Dix and the Bitter End Yacht Club opened and functioning. This information was provided by Junior Minister for Tourism, Hon. Shereen Flax-Charles.
In her update on various tourism matters during the Private Members Business section of the continued House of Assembly sitting on September 2, Hon. Flax-Charles indicated that she was given information that efforts to reopen were being advanced on both properties.
As it relates to Little Dix, which was expected to open a year earlier, but was set back because of the 2017 hurricanes, it is anticipating a strong return. This notion is backed by the fact that the management earlier announced job fairs, indicated a date for bookings, and on its website announced that it is planning to open in late 2019.
Hon. Flax-Charles however did not divulge much about the resort’s reopening plans. Instead, the Junior Tourism Minister said, “The eagerly awaited reopening of Rosewood Little Dix Bay is becoming a reality, and I think everyone in this room and throughout the entire BVI would be happy that this is happening.”
On the other hand, Bitter End might not open until next year. In bringing that update, the Junior Minister said, “The Bitter End Yacht Club is also on track to start their construction very soon and to open in 2020.”
