Oscar Winner Steve McQueen Returns to his Roots
Academy Award Director Steve McQueen returned to his roots at the weekend, and spent time relaxing in Grenada where his mother was born. McQueen fresh from the Oscars, where he was honored with an Academy Award for Best Film “Twelve Years A Slave”, was hosted at a party given by Grenada’s Ambassador for Inward Investment, Peter de Savary, at his Grenadian home Azzurra Castle.
De Savary hosted the party to congratulate and show Grenada’s appreciation to McQueen for his outstanding achievement. Besides the island’s cognoscenti, Grenada’s Prime Minister, the Rt. Honourable. Dr. Keith Mitchell, the Minister of Tourism, Honourable Alexandra Otway Noel and other dignitaries enjoyed the evening.
McQueen is another successful name Grenada has hosted of late. Over the last six months, a steady stream of celebrities have visited, including Mick Jagger; Oprah Winfrey; Bill Gates; Michele Rodriguez; Kellan Lutz and Morgan Freeman amongst others. With the ongoing sympathetic development of Port Louis and its mega yacht marina by de Savary; word is spreading fast that Grenada is the next “must island” to visit.
Peter de Savary’s other attractive development, Mount Cinnamon Resort & Beach Club, is set on a majestic hillside on Grand Anse Beach – one of the world’s most beautiful beaches.
