The Nikki Beach Brand Opening its First Full-service
Resort in the Turks & Caicos Islands
|MIAMI - March 17, 2008 - Nikki Beach, one of the world’s
most recognizable lifestyle and entertainment brands, is expanding into
the luxury boutique hotel and resort business with the introduction of
its first full-service resort and marina complex in the Turks & Caicos
Islands. Opening April 5, 2008, Nikki Beach Resort Turks & Caicos is
the first of 15 new hotels and resorts located in 12 countries around the
world. The resort features luxury studios, one- and two-bedroom suites.
Known for its glamorous star-studded parties and an incomparable dining experience surrounded by Nikki Beach music, beautiful people and great wines, Nikki Beach’s flagship resort in Turks & Caicos offers guests a unique vacation concept combining five-star service, luxury accommodations, design and ambiance with signature entertainment in an international, jet-set resort environment. Beautiful by nature and known only by the savvy international traveler, Turks & Caicos’ pristine beaches and turquoise waters make for a spectacular backdrop for the $100 million, gated complex on the exclusive northeast tip of Providenciales.
Opening April 5, Phase One of the project includes a 48-room resort
along with the signature Nikki Beach Club, VIP Ultra Lounge as well as
the largest mega-yacht marina in Turks & Caicos. Phase Two, which will
open in 2010, will add an additional 110-room resort, casino and spa.
“We are thrilled to welcome our first VIP guests at Nikki Beach Resort,” said Gary Sims, president of Nikki Beach Hotels & Resorts. “Our formula for creating a luxury lifestyle experience will raise the bar for elite travel in the Caribbean and place Turks & Caicos on par with destinations synonymous with playgrounds for the rich and famous such as Cannes, St. Tropez, Cabo San Lucas, Marrekech and St. Barths.”
Nikki Beach Resort will celebrate its grand opening on April 5 in true Nikki fashion with a traditional Nikki Beach White Party, showcasing well-known international DJs and unique entertainment. An international A-list of beautiful celebrities and upper echelon VIPs will converge on this exclusive island paradise under the inquisitive eyes of the worldwide media.
From the moment guests arrive at Providenciales International Airport, the five-star service, representative of the Nikki Beach global entertainment brand, will be abundantly clear. Glamorous by design, a private chauffeured limousine will transport guests from the airport to the resort.
Checking-in while sipping a glass of champagne along the way, allows guests to avoid any front desk reception line and immediately enjoy this spectacular venue upon arrival. A personal assistant will be available for each guest around the clock to guarantee that no wish or whim goes unfulfilled. Resort services will include personalized in-room music selection, pillow menu and personal choice room amenities providing a level of comfort unsurpassed in the industry.
To meet the demand of Nikki Beach’s high-profile clientele, the resort’s owners have developed the Turks & Caicos Yacht Club, a 110-slip mega-yacht marina complex accommodating vessels up to 200 feet with an on-site Customs and Immigration Services office and a VIP lounge for crews. The Turks & Caicos Yacht Club marina is the world’s first eco-marina with state-of-the-art technology designed, built and operated to exceed all 22 Guidance Notes to the Blue Flag Marina Criteria and protective of the marine ecology of Turks & Caicos’ pristine turquoise waters. The Turks & Caicos Yacht Club is managed by Island Global Yachting, the world’s premier mega-yacht marina operations and management organization. Guests of the marina will have access to all of Nikki Beach Resort and Spa’s services and amenities.
Building on the unprecedented growth of the Nikki Beach Club concept, with more than 3.5 million customers at 12 venues worldwide, the many Nikki Beach Hotels and Resorts under development and the flagship Nikki Beach Resort Turks & Caicos represent a natural progression from the lifestyle entertainment industry to the hotel and resort sector with real estate opportunities for discriminating investors.
