Celestial Spell in the Turks & Caicos Islands
Oceanfront Suites, "Miss Seven" Service and Secluded Dune Pavilions
Providenciales, Turks & Caicos Islands (January 30, 2008) - Like the luminous stars for which it is named, Seven Stars resort is set to cast a dazzling glow on Grace Bay Beach on Providenciales' northern coast when it opens in the Turks & Caicos Islands, July 2008. Named for the seven stars of the storied Pleiades constellation, it features 115 residential units which break out to 165 luxurious oceanfront and oceanview studios and suites of one- to four-bedrooms and penthouses in three beachfront buildings. A range of service innovations include 'Miss Seven' service, a concierge team who travel by Segway to ensure rapid response to all manner of guest requests.

Prominently positioned on the powdery-white 12-mile beach, the fashionable 22-acre resort features magnificent ocean views and lushly landscaped gardens; courtyards; and secluded dune pavilions, a collection of hand-crafted bedded pavilions strategically placed in the dunes for the ultimate in privacy and relaxation. Nearby, rolling hills dotted with wild cotton and yellow orchids provide a beguiling backdrop for the resort's architecturally striking buildings and oceanfront pool.
Believing that exceptional comfort, dining and service are the defining
characteristics of the luxury experience, the resort enlisted Duncan MacArthur,
a seasoned hotelier with more than 30 years of experience worldwide, and
Jeffrey Boland, whose experience includes general manager and resident
manager at two top Caribbean resorts, to ensure a seamless and personalized
service experience throughout the jewel-like property.
Ranging from 620 to 6,000 square feet, the studios and suites feature
expansive living areas with marble floors, broad wraparound terraces or
private balconies and furnishings of hardwood, teak and mahogany. All have
king beds and, depending on their size, several also have queen and twin
beds. All feature cable TV and CD/DVD players with iPod connectivity.
Chef-caliber kitchens in the suites have stainless steel GE Monogram appliances
and granite countertops. Spacious five-fixture bathrooms are finished with
Snaidero cabinetry and natural stone counters and feature hairdryers, terry
bathrobes, slippers and luxury bath amenities. Many have a separate shower,
Jacuzzi and double sinks. Twice-daily housekeeping service (including turndown)
ensures that guests' supply of plush luxury towels is constantly replenished.
Now accepting reservations for July 2008 onward, Seven Stars offers
a variety of creative packages for families and reunions, couples, and
adventure-minded vacationers. There is a wide range of accommodations with
daily rates - which include full breakfast and transfers to and from the
airport - ranging from $395 for a one bedroom Garden View Studio to $5,800
for a Royal Beachfront four bedroom suite and Grand Salon, depending on
