STAY WITH THE STARS! THE ALEXANDRA NAMED HOST HOTEL FOR THE TURKS & CAICOS INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

And the Flight is on Us! Guests Receive Airfare Credit with the You Fly, We Buy Package

PROVIDENCIALES, TURKS & CAICOS – August 28, 2006 – Known for its pristine white sand beaches and turquoise waters, Turks & Caicos has long been a secret destination for the Hollywood set looking to get a little R&R. But now their film work is making just as big of a splash on this Caribbean paradise. Running from October 17-21, the Turks & Caicos International Film Festival will be celebrating its second year, and first year in partnership with The Alexandra, recently named host hotel of the festival.

Situated on 600 feet of beachfront, The Alexandra welcomes guests with its understated island luxury and warm atmosphere. Film fanatics will find The Alexandra to be the perfect “set” during their stay for the film festival, as the property is giving guests a little star treatment, offering their “You Fly We Buy” package to all film festival attendees. Guests booked from four to seven nights in any Luxury/Deluxe room category (studio, one- or two-bedroom suites) will receive an airfare credit back on their hotel bill, as a glimpse into privy treatment stars receive during their vacations. Guests booked seven nights at higher priced room categories stand to receive an airfare credit up to $1370. Airfare credit varies with regard to number of room nights and suite category chosen.

This year, the Turks & Caicos International Film Festival will be paying homage to a variety of new and previously released films (such as Ray, The Piano and Purple Rain) that portray and utilize music as a central theme. Beyond the stars to appear on-screen, the film festival is under the executive direction of a TV and Broadway star, Jasmine Guy, who has previously appeared in TV’s A Different World and the famed musical Chicago. The event’s advisory board also includes Hollywood heavyweights such as Oscar-winning director Paul Haggis (Crash) and mega-star Bruce Willis.

Rates at The Alexandra start at $280 for deluxe ocean view studio suites. This special “You Fly, We Buy” offer does not include a mandatory 10% service charge and 10% government tax, and cannot be combined with any other offers. Credit is awarded per room and will be reflected in the hotel bill finalized upon end of stay. The minimum discount is $390. The offer also does not include any outside resort services such as spa treatments, tours and transportation and applies only to luxury beachfront and deluxe ocean view suites.
