Press Release 2012

Oranjestad, Aruba (July 23, 2012) - On Thursday night, June 28, 2012, the Divi Resorts group hosted a select assembly of film industry guests and international media for an exclusive cocktail social under the stars on an elegantly appointed outdoor terrace area at the Divi Village Golf & Beach Resort.

The social, which was attended by Academy Award and Golden Globe nominated actor Virginia Madsen and actor Xavier Samuel of "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" fame, was the official closing party for the 3rd Annual Aruba International Film Festival immediately following the event's final new film screening.

"It has been an honor to host Virginia Madsen, Xavier Samuel and a host of other VIP guests at Divi Village Golf & Beach Resort and to support Aruba's blossoming Film Festival," said Alex Nieuwmeyer, Managing Director of Divi Resorts Aruba and Bonaire. "This was an excellent way for us to showcase our exquisite golf property and other Divi Resorts on Aruba to influential film industry VIPs as well as local and international members of the press."

The event included an open bar with a full selection of wine, beer and cocktails as well as hors d'oeuvres including tuna tataki, lobster shooters and braised lamb chops plus award-winning dessert samplers which were passed around by waitstaff circulating through the crowd.

Attendees entered via a red carpet to the designated event area, with comfortable couches and chairs scattered around the open-air portion of the terrace and also under the large tent.

Beanbag chairs by Fatboy provided an additional way for attendees to relax while listening to music by the dj or live drummer, viewing the original artwork displays by local Aruban artists or admiring the cars provided by event sponsor BMW that were strategically placed around the perimeter of the terrace.

A surprise performance by dancers in traditional feathered headdresses and sparkling sequined costumes kept everyone enthralled while adding a dose of local culture to the event. As a testament to the evening's success, guests enjoyed networking, mixing and mingling with each other into the early morning hours after the social officially concluded.

Divi Resorts boasts a total of five properties on Aruba, including the Divi Village Golf & Beach Resort, Divi Aruba Phoenix Beach Resort, Divi & Tamarijn Aruba All Inclusives and the Divi Dutch Village Resort.
