International reggae star Buju Banton and his entourage will be the first guests of the newly constructed Quito’s Inn in Cane Garden Bay.
Owner of the establishment Quito Rymer said the celebrity reggae artiste is slated to arrive in the British Virgin Islands days before his ‘Long Walk to Freedom’ show slated for June 15 at the festival village in Road Town.
“They are booking the whole hotel and it feels awesome. We are very excited about it,” Rymer told BVI News on Wednesday.
“I love his music and have always been one of his fans,” added Rymer who is also a local artiste.
Luxury accommodation, catering to a different crowd
Meanwhile, Rymer said the new beach-chic inn is to cater to a diverse circle of travellers to the territory.
“Years ago, I found out that everybody’s competing for the same clientele. And, I listened to people’s conversations, and I realized that people are looking for a different kind of experience and it’s nothing wrong with what we have, but we all had pretty much the same,” he said.
“So when we decided to do this property, we decided that based on what we have been hearing from visitors, we needed to bring it up a notch and make something for every level of traveller. So we decided to do this and make it a little higher end,” Rymer said.
The inn — located a stone throw away from the acclaimed Cane Garden Bay beach — has a total of 21 rooms all named after Quito’s songs. The rooms are made up of six oceanfront suites, three penthouse suites, and 12 junior suites.
The four-level inn is also equipped with a pool, conference room, gym, spa, offices and parking.
“Our rooms are all suites, each one has its own kitchenette, and balcony and they have really nice sturdy furnishings,” said Kimberly Rymer, wife of Quito Rymer who was also was the interior designer.
“So, when people come in, the rooms don’t have one, two like everybody else, people know just about all my songs, and those who don’t know will know them now,” Rymer said while explaining why he named the suites after his songs.
“It will be a total vacation even in the rooms you have to feel like you are still on Cane Garden Bay beach,” he said.
Despite having had an open house tour last weekend, the inn is still undergoing some necessary tweaking to begin welcoming guests.
