On a recent Wednesday afternoon, a group of BVI Tourist Board representatives ambled through one of several palm-frond-thatched huts around the pool of one of the territory’s newest resorts: The Anegada Beach Club, at Keel Point, officially opened on May 1.
“We just wanted to check it out to see how we might be able to assist them in any way,” said BVITB Director Sharon Flax-Mars, who was on the island for a public meeting promoting the recently conceived Anegada Lobster Festival.
Hammers and power tools could be heard nearby as men continued work on a freestanding building near the entrance to the property that will serve as the small resort’s office.
“We had a pretty soft opening,” said Jamie Johnson, operations manager of Mosaka Ventures, the development company behind the project. “We’re still working out the kinks, but it’s been going great so far.”
The new hotel, bar and restaurant is part of the Driftwood Resort line, which also offers vacation villas and other accommodations in Nail Bay and Mooney Bay, Virgin Gorda.
