The Classic Resort

Rosewood Little Dix Bay, the Virgin Gorda escape originally founded by Laurance Rockefeller, recently converted its 10 iconic tree-house cottages into five huge suites with wraparound terraces. $$$

The Private Island

With its seven windswept beaches and 18 airy stone cottages and villas, 850-acre Guana Island (pictured above) draws a mix of honeymooners and high rollers in need of a quiet getaway. And for visitors who don’t like too much tranquillity, there’s tennis, badminton, and hiking on 26 miles of trails. $$$$$

The Modern Villa

Virgin Gorda’s Oil Nut Bay estate offers all the perks of a resort (24-hour concierge service, a beach club) but with more space and privacy. The eight sleek houses range from one to six bedrooms—big enough for multigenerational family getaways. $$$$$

The Charter Sail

The six- or eight-person catamarans from Festiva Sailing Vacations come with a captain and first mate, so you can set your own course through the BVI. Explore the Baths on Virgin Gorda and linger over a cocktail at Jost Van Dyke’s Soggy Dollar Bar. From $1,848 per person for seven nights.
