PARK CITY, Utah, Jan. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Sundance is hotter than ever this year as Aruba invites Hollywood stars like Nikki Reed, Toni Collette, Molly Shannon and Gina Rodriguez to experience sunny island life in the center of snowy Park City.
Aruba had several surprises in store for Sundance stars and starlets this weekend as they accepted island-inspired "starring roles" at the Kari Feinstein Style Lounge, including complimentary vacations to the popular Caribbean destination.
Past attendees of this popular lounge include Matthew McConaughey, Katherine Heigl, Joe Manganiello and Christina Hendricks.
"As the co-host of the top celebrity suite, our goal was to capture the spirit of the weekend's film frenzy by bringing Aruba's star-studded qualities to life in an authentic and engaging way," said Ronella Tjin-Asjoe Croes, CEO of Aruba Tourism Authority (ATA).
Celebrated as one of the most revisited destinations in the Caribbean and boasting the world's most beautiful beaches and friendliest locals, Aruba is an ideal vacation spot for movie stars seeking both adventure and R&R.
"Twilight" saga star Peter Facinelli recently visited Aruba with his family in 2014 and enjoyed a combination of lounging on the beach, sunset cruising and JetLev soaring like a "rocket man" above the turquoise seas.
"We're looking forward to attracting more sun-seekers to our One happy island following Sundance," said Croes.
