B.V.I. to set new standards for lodgings

ROAD TOWN, British Virgin Islands -- This British territory plans to establish a series of comprehensive hotel standards for accommodations, restaurants and yachting sectors throughout the islands.

Kedric Malone, director of the British Virgin Islands Tourist Board, described the implementation of the new standards as one of the most revolutionary measures conducted by the B.V.I. for its tourism sector.

Malone said that the new standards would help ensure that the quality of service delivered here is equal to our natural beauty.

The program, funded by the B.V.I. government, would require that all sectors meet and exceed new service standards.

The tourist board staff, including Janis Braithwaite, deputy director, conducted a series of focus group meetings with hotel owners, restaurateurs and yacht operators during the past several months to determine the new industry standards.
