FAM trip to Little Dix Bay (Virgin Gorda) + Jumby Bay (Antigua)

I'm out of control excited about my next FAM trip to Rosewood Hotel's properties in Virgin Gorda and Antigua. Both properties I'll be visiting are super private, luxury resorts and I am fully prepared to make believe like I am of royal lineage for 5 days.

Here's info on both resorts:

Little Dix Bay, Virgin Gorda
Just beyond a colorful barrier reef, lapped by gentle blue waters, lies Rosewood Little Dix Bay® - a truly authentic destination, tamed for sophisticated tastes. The timeless boutique resort on Virgin Gorda offers tranquility found nowhere else in the Caribbean. Little Dix rewards its discerning guests with an instantaneous retreat from their fast-paced lives - an unmatched Caribbean vacation getaway offering fine dining, an award-winning spa, luxury villas and beachfront rooms and suites.

Jumby Bay, private island off Antigua
Set on a 300-acre private Caribbean island, Jumby Bay, A Rosewood Resort casts a spell of serene enchantment. Nestled two miles off the coast of Antigua, the exclusive resort is a naturalist's haven noted for its lush landscape, stately palm trees and three superb, white sand beaches. A secluded hideaway accessible only by boat, the luxury resort is known worldwide for providing discerning travelers with world-class service and distinguished amenities.

Thank you so much Rosewood Hotel for selecting me as one of the select few planners to share this experience and spread the good word! Extra special thank you to my hosts at Little Dix Bay and Jumby Bay!
