A year ago, as Britain’s financial crisis hit the tourism industry hard, the country’s top resort, Pelican Hill, announced it would raise the price of its three-day-a-week class to £100,000.
It has since doubled the price to £135,000, to a maximum of £180,000 by 2020.
And now, the same resort is facing fresh scrutiny.
On Monday, the European Commission said it was considering a request from Pelican Hills to lift its tariffs on the island of British Virgin Islands, which are more than half the cost of its £90m-plus luxury resort in The Bahamas.
Pelican House in The Cayman Islands is one of the world’s most expensive resorts.
A £90 million-plus resort The UK’s top luxury resort has raised its tariffs to £90.3m from £80m.
That is £7m more than the average UK resort, but the UK government says that is only a small price to pay to get the best-in-class facilities, services and amenities.
The British Virgin Islanders have to pay an average tariff of £1,700 a day, according to the Office for National Statistics.
The average UK tariff is £1.20 per hour, or £0.40 per minute.
British Virgin islands are home to some of the most popular destinations in the Caribbean, such as the Bahamas and St Kitts and Nevis.
But they are also one of Europe’s poorest countries.
“Pelicans are a very expensive group of people,” says the British Virgin Island Authority, a government body.
“They’re extremely reliant on the tourism and fishing industry and are a poor lot.
They are the ones who need to have access to the best facilities and services, and they can’t afford to be priced out.”
The island’s government says it wants to ensure that the prices on Pelican house stays will reflect the price that British Virgin Islons residents pay for them, not the prices the resort has set itself.
“We are the only British Virgin island in the country that has to pay a tariff,” says Simon Smith, the island’s chief executive.
“The island of BVI has a rate of just £10 per day.
The UK government argues that the resort will provide much-needed economic opportunity for the island. “
I’m not a huge fan of high-cost resorts, but if you are trying to get out of poverty, then you need to look at the best of the best.”
The UK government argues that the resort will provide much-needed economic opportunity for the island.
It will be able to attract visitors, who would otherwise travel to the UK.
It could also boost local tourism and tourism revenue for local businesses.
And the island has an annual budget of £100 million, which could be used to develop the island in other ways.
The UK Government says it will make a decision on the rate of tariff change by the end of next year.
The decision will depend on the availability of information about the resort, and its plans for the future.
But the decision is expected to cause huge resentment among the islanders, who have spent years lobbying for the right to live, work and visit their own country without being subject to the same tariff as their British counterparts.
What do the Brits get?
UK luxury resorts are among the most profitable in the business, and the average Briton makes £80,000 a year.
In comparison, the average British villager makes £19,000 per year.
But there are differences between the two countries.
The luxury resorts pay high tariffs because they are owned by British people and, crucially, have the same tax rates.
The islanders are not entitled to these privileges.
The tariffs on luxury resorts in the UK, by contrast, are set by the European Union, which is a member state of the European Economic Area (EEA).
But the UK has a preferential trading arrangement with the EU, which gives it preferential access to trade deals.
So the Brito has an advantage in many areas, including access to European markets and access to goods and services.
However, many Brito families and small businesses don’t benefit from this advantage.
The price hike on Pelicans has been welcomed by some of Britain’s wealthiest citizens, who are able to spend money on the luxury resort, because of their tax advantages.
But others, including some British expats, say the tax benefits for their families and businesses are a drag on the economy.
What can you expect to pay when you stay at a luxury villa?
It’s likely to be the same as it is in the rest of the UK and can be significantly higher.
It’s not unusual for a luxury holiday to cost more than £1 million.
In the UK the average price of a three-
