Virgin Gorda was named in 1493 by Columbus, who saw in the islands that now frame Little Dix Bay the silhouette of a portly woman lying on her back (Virgin Gorda translates to "Fat Virgin"). The island was a fairly desolate agricultural community when Laurance S. Rockefeller established the resort. Planning and land acquisition began in 1958; the resort debuted in January of 1964. A believer in hiring and training local people to proudly serve their island, Mr. Rockefeller discovered a friendly, highly motivated work force among the residents of Virgin Gorda. With an employee-guest ratio of two-to-one, Virgin Gordians still graciously serve guests today at Rosewood Little Dix Bay.
