Turks and Caicos to host World Travel Awards Ceremony tonight

VIP guests have arrived on the island of Turks and Caicos ahead of the World Travel Awards Caribbean & The Americas Gala Ceremony 2012 which will take place tonight (Friday).

The prestigious event will be taking place at Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort Villages & Spa, a popular resort for international tourists taking Turks and Caicos holidays.

Gordon “Butch” Stewart, the CEO of Sandals and Beaches Resorts, will be hosting the ceremony along with Rising Caribbean star and the reigning Miss Bahamas, Anastagia Pierre, and the American actor and comedian Walt Willey.

The event will include dinner, entertainment and the anticipated awards presentation where hundreds of travel companies, hotels, airlines and tour operators such as Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, The Ritz-Carlton, Avis, Air Jamaica, Port of Falmouth, Virgin Atlantic and Delta Airlines will battle it out for the coveted awards.

“We are delighted to host our Caribbean & The Americas Ceremony 2012 in Turks & Caicos, a paradise destination currently enjoying a surge in tourism arrivals due to its overwhelming natural attractions and quality hotels and resorts,” stated the President of the World Travel Awards (WTA), Graham Cooke.

The President went on to praise the Beaches brand for providing family-friendly holidays in Turks and Caicos.

“As the country’s largest private sector employer, Beaches exemplifies the importance of travel and tourism in Turks & Caicos in generating jobs and tourism revenue,” he added.

“The resort has also taken the family vacation concept to a whole new level in the Caribbean.”

The Beaches Turks and Caicos Resort Villages and Spa is located in one of the Caribbean’s leading scuba diving destinations and the all inclusive hotel is perfect for holidaymakers of all ages. The luxury Caribbean resort features a 45-square-foot waterpark, a pristine 12-mile beach with crystal clear ocean waters, and three villages that boast architecture influenced by Italy, France and the Caribbean.

During holidays to Turks and Caicos, adults can indulge with a relaxing treatment at the Red Lane Spa while children and teens enjoy a wide range of activities at the Kids Club or teen disco, Liquid.

The Beaches brand is owned by Sandals Resorts, a hotel group that operates hotels and resorts in Turks and Caicos, Jamaica, St Lucia, the Bahamas, Antigua and Cuba.

The World Travel Awards are regarded as the “Oscars of the travel industry” by the global media, and tonight’s ceremony will honour destinations, hotels and organisations that have largely contributed to the Caribbean and Americas tourism sector over the past 12 months.

The winners of the regional heats that are taking place across the world will go on to compete in the Grand Final Gala Ceremony at The Oberoi in New Delhi, India on 12th December, 2012.

“WTA honours excellence in the tourism industry around the world but what it also highlights is new, emerging markets for investment opportunities and the Turks & Caicos with its growing economy welcomes all of the nominees from around the world,” added Ralph Higgs, the Director of Tourism for the Turks & Caicos Tourist Board.
