Mr. Quito Rymer, well known BVIslander, musician, artist, and business owner, along with his wife Kim, have committed to an ambitious undertaking; expanding and rebuilding Quito’s Inn, a hotel that has been part of the Cane Garden Bay scene since 1989.
Quito’s Inn will open in December 2017, offering a range of suites and amenities across this 21-room property, with the Rymers taking great pride in bringing added value to Cane Garden Bay.
The ethos and concept of the new property is ‘Your Home Away From Home’, delivering a first class experience to guests, whilst still retaining the heritage and friendliness Quito’s is world renowned for.
This new venture is contributing significantly to the local economy, having created many construction jobs and creating an additional 25 jobs once the property is operational. It is also a great addition to the BVI’s tourism sector, which is the second pillar of the country’s economy.
With Quito’s Inn expansion, there will be an even greater need for higher quality services, with many new job opportunities created.
At present, there are 17 persons employed at the restaurant; a total of 13 additional staff will be hired to fill the positions of waiters, dishwashers, bartenders, chefs, transportation personnel, gift shop clerk, and a food & beverage manager.
12 additional employees will also be needed to help manage the front and back of the house operations of the new hotel. These positions include: front desk assistants, house keeping and laundry personnel.
This new 6-floor structure will include 12 deluxe rooms, 9 suites, a conference room, gift shop, spa, swimming pool, and underground parking. Quito’s Gazebo is also under going major upgrades to enhance guests’ dining experience at its two restaurants, casual dining on the lower floor and beach chic fine dining Upstairs @ Quito's. Guests will also be able to book boat trips, day trips around Tortola and rental cars through hotel guest services. The Rymers are looking forward to offering world-class service in this beautiful tropical setting.
“I want to continue to make my contribution to the BVI tourist industry and the village I was born and raised in, and love so much. I believe this industry in the BVI is strong and will continue to grow”, said Mr. Rymer.
