Lights, Camera, Action! St. James's Club & Villas Sets The Scene



Antigua all-inclusive resort selected as host for second on-location filming project

DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. - August 12, 2013 - Hot on the heels of hosting the two-part season finale of ABC's The Bachelorette, Elite Island Resorts proudly announces that one of its premier beachfront resort destinations was once again selected as a filming location. This time, St. James's Club & Villas, which rests on a secluded 100-acre peninsula on the southeastern coast of Antigua, was chosen to serve as the scenic backdrop for the Corpbasics Fitness DVD System. The series officially launched this week through a national TV infomercial and advertising campaign.

"We couldn't have picked a better location to film the Corpbasics DVD System than St. James's Club," said Keith Jones, CEO of Fitness Media Systems, Inc. "The backdrop views from the dock overlooking Mamora Bay as well as the Royal Suites Pool were unmatched locations to anything we could have found in the States. The landscapes created the perfect workout atmosphere for our customers, who utilize the DVDs in their homes on a daily basis. For instance, imagine being snowed-in at home but enjoying beautiful scenery from the Caribbean as you do your morning workout. You just can't beat that."

From broadcast giants such as ABC to promotional videos and commercials, a wide range of media types are turning to Elite Island Resorts for their filming and photo shoot needs. With a diverse collection of beachfront resorts in the Caribbean's most sought-after locations, Elite Island Resorts is able to meet virtually every film scout's request.

The picturesque beauty and year-round ideal climate particularly make Antigua an obvious choice. The ease of traveling to the island with crew and equipment on nonstop flights from New York and Miami ensure that things stay on schedule. Sealing the deal is Elite Island Resorts' powerhouse management team, who are well experienced with catering to the unique needs of crews across a variety of media outlets.

"It's always a challenge pre-planning and then executing a large video production, especially when the majority of filming is done outdoors. However, shooting at St. James's Club, with its professional accommodating staff, friendly management and beautiful weather, made our production both a successful and stress-free experience," said Jones. "Getting through customs with our crew, talent and equipment was a breeze, and the resort staff and management team went above and beyond to accommodate our needs during each phase of the production."

ANTIGUA, THE CARIBBEAN (July 30, 2013) - Elite Island Resorts will be featured on the upcoming two-part final episode of The Bachelorette. The episode will feature three beautiful all-inclusive resorts in Antigua including St. James's Club & Villas, The Verandah Resort & Spa and Galley Bay Resort & Spa.

This season on The Bachelorette, Desiree, 27, an operations manager and stylist at a bridal salon, who previously charmed America's favorite Bachelor, Sean Lowe, meets 25 potential soul mates and gets another shot at love as the Bachelorette. Millions watched, stunned, as Sean sent Desiree home following the hometown dates even after she pleaded he was making a big mistake. Desiree has not given up on her dream of love, however, and she knows with certainty that the time is right for her to risk it all again to find her one true love on The Bachelorette.
