Feels like home
Crystal Cove, one of the properties in the Elegant Hotels Group, felt like home for American actress, Vanessa Williams, who was in Barbados for three days recently doing promotional work for a new film she will star in called Once Upon This Isle by local film-maker Claire Ince.
Williams, most famous for her role as Maxine Chadway in the television hit series Soul Food, noted that she had visited Barbados before and was very excited to be back.
“I just love Barbados. I have been here three times before and I would be grateful to come back for five more weeks to do the film,” Williams said. “This is my first time staying at Crystal Cove and I am having a fantastic time. It is clean, hospitable and the chef is very accommodating.”
General Manager of Crystal Cove Charles Maynard, noted that it was a pleasure to host Williams at the beachfront hotel stating: “It is always great to be able to provide accommodation which adds to the overall experience of visitors to this island.
“It especially warming when an internationally recognised actress like Ms. Williams opts to stay with us and leaves fully satisfied and we are pleased to play our part.”
During her stay in Barbados, the 49-year old actress attended The Second Diaspora Conference at The Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre, participated in a fund raising benefit to secure financing for the film, attended an event at Ilaro Court and visited other places of interest on the island as she embraced true Bajan culture and cuisine.
