Vivica Fox to host World Travel Awards Grand Final 2014 in Anguilla

Award-winning actress Vivica Fox - star of ‘Independence Day’, ‘Batman & Robin’, and ‘Why do Fools Fall in Love’ -  has been revealed as the host of the upcoming World Travel Awards Grand Final 2014.

She will take her place among an exciting array of performers at CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa on Sunday, December 7th.

After touring the globe in search of the world’s best hospitality organisations over the past year, World Travel Awards will host the crème de la crème of the industry in Anguilla for the first time.

Joining those honoured with awards will be hundreds of dignitaries, luminaries and international media, as well as government and industry leaders who continue to set the standard of excellence in travel.

World Travel Awards president Graham Cooke said: “It will be an honour for the World Travel Awards to visit Anguilla for the first time and I can think of no better place for us to celebrate the best of global tourism than CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa.

“Our 2014 Grand Tour has been an extensive search of the very best of the tourism industry around the world. This is the final stage of our annual programme and I look forward to welcoming our regional winners to Anguilla as they compete for the global titles. Best of luck to you all.”

This year has been one of the most successful to date for World Travel Awards, with the annual Grand Tour beginning with the Middle East Gala Ceremony, which took place at the JW Marriott Marquis in Dubai in May.

This was followed by the Europe Gala Ceremony at Divani Apollon Palace & Thalasso, in Athens, Greece, before the organisation was welcome to Quito, capital of Ecuador, for the South & Central America Gala Ceremony in August.

Most recently World Travel Awards visited The Oberoi, New Delhi, in India, for the Asia & Australasia Gala Ceremony, completing the regional events for the year.

“This is a very exciting milestone for Anguilla,” said Haydn Hughes, Anguilla parliamentary secretary with responsibility for tourism and sports.

“Tourism is a vital part of our economy, and we have been working closely with the local and international businesses community to implement a number of groundbreaking initiatives over the last two years to generate tourism growth.”

The luxurious CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa has been chosen to showcase the distinguished Gala Ceremony.

General manager Stephane Zaharia said the resort is working around the clock to prepare for the prestigious event.

Zaharia explained: “Recognition by the World Travel Awards is rightly seen as the highest accolade in the tourism sector. We look forward to extending our rich tradition of hospitality to the attending global travel specialists and invite each of them to experience our renowned culinary, wine and golf offerings in this unparalleled setting.”

The multi-award winning CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa harbours an exceptional setting for the World Travel Awards Gala Ceremony.

Situated in the crescent curve of Rendezvous Bay, CuisinArt offers luxurious suites and villas, an exceptional range of fine dining experiences, the highly revered Venus Spa, and a thrilling challenge for golf aficionados at the resort’s stunning 18-hole Greg Norman Signature Design Championship Course.

The World Travel Awards Gala Ceremonies are widely regarded as the most celebrated event in the travel industry, a venue for government and industry leaders to connect with international print and broadcast media.

Winning a World Travel Award has a proven track record of significantly raising a company’s profile, and escalating profitability and recognition.
