Cooke added: “I can’t wait to welcome all of our nominees to Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort Villages & Spa in September.”
All accommodation at Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort Villages & Spa boasts arresting views of tropical gardens, pools or the sea - and feature mahogany and rattan furniture and Italian tile floors.
