It's not hard to love a spa, we know. But we really love the Sense spa at Rosewood Little Dix Bay Resort for delivering on the promise of "total relaxation" that all spas make but few keep. Yes, we've loved the treatments here, and yes, we've swum in their pool. But right now, we're seriously into Sense's newest amenity: a side of coconut water, which is being offered free throughout May and June.

Yes, a fresh coconut plucked from the lush grounds of the resort will be served to any guest--poolside, of course--when they book a 90-minute Caribbean Breeze Spa Treatment.

If The Main Pool is Noisy, Head to the Spa at Little Dix Bay

Dreaming of lounging by a pool at a Caribbean resort this winter? We'd recommend the Rosewood Little Dix Bay, a British Virgin Islands resort with breezy cabins and no locks on the doors ("there are no keys in paradise!"). If you like luxury without pretense, this is your place.

But that whole "popular with families" thing? It almost ruined the poolside afternoon we planned for ourselves on a recent visit. As soon as we saw the large group of kids playing "Marco Polo" and splashing about, we knew we needed a Plan B.

And we found it--up the hill at Sense, a Rosewood Spa. But instead of a candle-lit relaxation room, this spa is open-air, set atop a cliff overlooking insanely blue ocean. There's a two-tier infinity pool and a little jacuzzi tucked away behind palm fronds.
