Hotel employs 25 non-Bermudians

The Loren

Half of the staff at the island’s newest hotel, The Loren, are non-Bermudian, according to Patricia Gordon-Pamplin.

Responding to questions in the House of Assembly, the Minister of Home Affairs said that a total of 25 Bermudians are employed at the Hamilton Parish hotel, along with 25 non-Bermudians. Of the non-Bermudians employed at the hotel, two are the spouses of Bermudians.

The answers drew a series of questions from PLP MP Derrick Burgess, who asked Ms Gordon-Pamplin if any Bermudians were employed in management positions and what their average salary was. He also asked if this was the lowest percentage of Bermudians employed by a hotel in the island’s history.

Ms Gordon-Pamplin said she could not answer those questions at the time, but would endeavour to get answers for Mr Burgess.

The Loren at Pink Beach opened its doors last month in a “soft launch”, with further rooms and amenities at the hotel coming into operation since then.
