“I was pleased to see the progress happening at the Pink Beach site, it was very encouraging,” said Premier Dunkley . “It is incredible to witness firsthand the evolution of the site through these regular visits.

“We learned today that they are already preparing to put the roof on the first building, which houses the kitchen, dining room, entrance hall and 12 guest units. All the walls are up and it is really beginning to take shape.

        @Mockingjay… excuse me but what are you trying to say?

      • Trollsbane says:

        Calling out “you people” for… “subliminal stereotyping”.

        Very clever.

        Good to see a real project to enhance Bermuda’s tourism product getting off the ground.

    Beyoncé is coming………………

  3. Dependence says:

    Regina, is W&E doing the job?

  4. Out of curiosity, Minister Fahy, how many locals / spouse of locals are employed on this particular site? (Inquisitive minds would like to know)

    • By the way, it is certainly great seeing this project come to fruition; look forward in seeing many others breaking ground soon.

  5. Unbelieveable says:

    WOW,….. this is called progress??

    It looks like the work site of a PRIVATE HOUSE..!!! NOT A HOTEL…

    Very few pictures of anything really….

    I smell a RAT and I NEED RUM…!!!!

    @ Raymond Ray, 36 locals and 8 foreign! Many locals get hired from the unemployed list, but many don’t last very long. They have a hard time working 30 hrs a week! I don’t think you can make deadlines with that amount of hrs a week! Perhaps you try it out for yourself!

    • tip2dtime says:

      36 locals and 8 foreign my you know what! Would really like to know where you got that info from!?!?

    • @ Sitting back: Thanks. I agree, they should be putting in more hours than,(if correct) 30hrs. per. week :-( But why only offer 30hrs. weeks? It wouldn’t cost anymore to have 44 people work 30hrs. for “X weeks” than 40hrs. for less weeks…

    • Mockingjay says:

      Do you have proof that they cant work 30 hrs week.

  7. Charlly X says:

    Lol I wonder how much construction trash they’ve buried at this site ?
    Nice to see another accommodation upgraded though !

  8. big mouth wrong info says:
