World Travel Awards touches down in Anguilla ahead of Grand Final 2014

5 December 2014 - London

World Travel Awards has touched down in the paradise island of Anguilla ahead of the Grand Final Gala Ceremony 2014.

Award-winning actress Vivica Fox has been confirmed as the host of the hotly anticipated event, taking place 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.”

He added: “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.

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.

About Anguilla

A hidden jewel piercing the seascape of the treasured northern Caribbean, the striking and peerless island of Anguilla is a British overseas territory tucked eight miles north of St. Martin, and 150 miles East of Puerto Rico.

Offering a world-class experience, upholding its coveted footprint as the leading destination for discerning travellers, the unspoiled paradise epitomises ‘Tranquillity Wrapped in Blue’: pristine shores that embrace the vast Atlantic Ocean, enveloped by the Caribbean Sea’s beckoning waters.

The island’s allure derives from the abundant warmth and hospitality of each Anguillan host, who have earned the global reputation as the ‘World’s Friendliest People’.

Boasting 33 immaculate beaches, Anguilla is laden with powder-soft vanilla sands and voluptuous swells of brilliant turquoise waters in hues that defy imagination. As the widely celebrated ‘Culinary Capital of the Caribbean’, Anguilla offers over 100 nostalgic and modern restaurants spanning a multitude of cuisines.

Luxurious accommodations range from beautifully appointed Charming Escapes and visually stunning villas, to quaint bed & breakfast outposts and award-winning, five-star resorts. Anguilla has become an exuberant memory vessel that holds an endearing place in the hearts of all who visit.
