LOS ANGELES, California – Green Globe announces certification of the Gordian Terrace House, located on the island of Virgin Gorda, in the British Virgin Islands (BVI). Gordian Terrace was one of the four properties selected to be part of the BVI Tourist Board’s Sustainable Tourism Environmental Program (STEP), launched in November 2011. The BVI Tourist Board, under the leadership of the government of the Virgin Islands, has taken proactive measures to preserve the beauty and the habitat of the BVI and help the territory become the premier destination for sustainable tourism in the Caribbean.

“We are delighted to be the first property on Virgin Gorda to be Green Globe certified,” said Lauralee Maynard, Marketing Manager at the Gordian Terrace. “Being part of STEP and working with Green Globe enabled us to be a more efficient company, and also provided the tools needed to educate our staff on sustainable practices. We are strongly committed to our important role of protecting our environment for our guests and residents of the British Virgin Islands.”

A long-term sustainability management system is implemented at the Gordian Terrace House to improve the organization, execution, and evaluation of their efforts. Awareness is promoted among guests, suppliers, and contractors through a comprehensive communication strategy, as well as local environmental and community-related activities. Gordian Terrace partners with Green VI [ www.greenvi.org ], a local non-profit organization, working for a greener, cleaner and healthier BVI – “We Are All In This Together” is the motto here.

“We are elated as more and more properties see the significance of preserving and protecting the environment,” commented Natasha Chalwell, Policy and Product Development Manager with the BVI Tourist Board. “The long-term goal is to stimulate economic growth throughout the territory, while maintaining each unique aspect of ‘Nature’s Little Secrets’ in efforts to facilitate the needs of future generations.”

BVI’s Premier Dr. Orlando Smith will be co-hosting the upcoming Leadership Summit for the Caribbean Challenge Initiative in May (May 17-18). Supported by Sir Richard Branson and the Nature Conservatory, this conference will bring together environment ministers, heads of government, and CEOs from around the region to evaluate and set the course for the management and preservation of the region’s marine and coastal environment. The Caribbean Challenge Initiative was launched in 2008.

April 28, 2011, Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands – For many travelers in these post-recession days, the idea of a luxury villa vacation is appealing, but the reality of being locked into a week-long stay is a problem for the time-pressed, over-worked traveler.  It’s why every year surveys show that a growing number of over-stressed Americans don’t use all of their paid vacation days.  Now,  Villa Aquamare has arrived at an elegant solution.

Whether a guest’s schedule works best with a Thursday to Tuesday getaway, a Friday to Wednesday escape, or any consecutive five nights, “Take Five” is designed to accommodate their busy lifestyle. Each of Villa Aquamare’s three private homes has five bedrooms, sleeping 10 adults and up to 12 guests if there are children in the group.  The offer comes with additional perks, such as a complimentary private chef dinner and a rental car to explore the island of Virgin Gorda during the stay.

THE MIGHTY ARROW, Soca King of the World, dies at 60.

The Mighty Arrow, Soca King of the World, dies at 60.

OLVESTON, Montserrat (Sept 15, 2010) – The Soca King of the World, Alphonsus “The Mighty Arrow” Cassell, died at his residence on the tiny Caribbean island of Montserrat today at the age of 60. 

The international recording artiste was diagnosed with cerebral cancer in early 2009. He was airlifted to the neighbouring island of Antigua last week for treatment. 

His family wishes to thank the medical teams, friends and family who gave their support during the period of his illness. 

Arrow or “Phonzie”, as he was referred to by close friends and family, is responsible for taking the soca genre to the international music scene with his 1982 smash hit, Hot, Hot, Hot. 

Having won the local calypso competition on four occasions, the talents of the proud son of Montserrat were spotted by former Beatles manager, Sir George Martin, who  worked with Arrow to turn his focus to his recording and touring career. 
 
Arrow recorded no less than 22 studio albums with other notable hits including Long Time, Dancing Mood, O’La Soca and Groove Master. 
 
He has performed at concerts, music festivals and gala events across the globe. 
 
“His death is a great loss to the family, his native land of Montserrat and the music world,” said his brother, Justin “Hero” Cassell, another talented vocalist and songwriter, who worked with Arrow during his peak years. 
 
Funeral announcements will be made in due course.
