Local businessman Quito Rymer said his brand new 21-room hotel located in Cane Garden Bay, Tortola, will open as Quito’s Inn in mid-December this year.
“There are 18 deluxe rooms and three suites… We will be offering a swimming pool with pool-side bar, conference room, spa and exercise room, gift shop and car rental. Free WI-fi, beach chairs and umbrellas are also available,” the hotel management said, adding that there will also be nightly music.
Room prices range from $275 per night to $750.
As it relates to each room, there will be a $50 charge for each additional person over 12 years of age.
The management of Quito’s Inn further explained: “Rates are subject to change without notice. A 10 percent Government hotel tax and a 10 percent service charge will be added to your nightly rate… All our room rates include breakfast at Quito’s Gazebo; managers welcome cocktail party weekly.”
Guests are required to stay at the hotel a minimum of three nights.
“A 50 percent deposit is required to confirm your booking. The deposit is refundable if cancellation is received more than 30 days in advance of booking, minus a 5 percent processing fee. Within 30 days of reservation, the deposit is not refundable.”
The management of Quito’s Inn, which is still under construction, further stated that no smoking or pets will be allowed.
Rymer, in an interview with BVI News Online, today stated that a number of people will be employed. He did not give a specific number.
But the businessman and musician stated that, in light of the new hotel coming on stream, the restaurant he currently operates will require a larger staff. Fifteen people currently work at the restaurant, Rymer said.
“We will need people to fill all the areas [at the hotel] – front desk, laundry, some managerial posts, spa…”
“Employment increase would not just be subjected to the hotel because, with the hotel opening, we will need extra staff at the restaurant as well to give the top service. There is a number of ads out; and we are interviewing and shortlisting quite a number of people,” added Rymer, who hails from Cane Garden Bay.
He is happy to further contribute to the tourism product in his community as well as the entire British Virgin Islands.
“We are going for a five star, so I see it as being very important for the area. I honestly think and hope that the people in tourism – Ministry of Tourism or Tourist Board – view it that way. Cane Garden Bay has always been a very important part of the tourism product of the BVI. So I see this as a positive for the BVI tourist industry and more-so for the Cane Garden Bay area,” Rymer further told BVI News Online. He stated that, at a later date, he will disclose the total amount of money invested in the new hotel.
