Celeb-suite life Luxury Lounge, GBK celebrates Golden Globes 2019

Sailrock Resort

 Aaah, the sweet life! Celebrities were thinking about a relaxing vacation on the sun drenched beaches of South Caicos at the Turks & Caicos Sailrock Resort. Then they were letting their minds drift as they had the ultimate massage experience on the 4D Kahuna Chair with their anti-aging LED mask. And there was much more in store at the sweet deluxe celebrity suite—the GBK Luxury Lounge, hosted by founder Gavin Keilly at the grand L’Hermitage Hotel in Beverly Hills. It was presented to celebrate the Golden Globes 2019.

 There were plenty of cocktail breaks for the stars toasting each other with JCB Spirits signature cocktails. Hollywood VIPs had the opportunity to create a personal wellness plan for a future visit to the Fit Farm spa-resort nestled in a peaceful Tennessee countryside. Then they enjoyed discovering some of this year’s hottest must-have items, including the chic and powerful Story Electric Bike that made Oprah Winfrey’s annual list of Favorite Things 2018.

Ooohing and aaahing at all the goodies were many familiar faces including Viola Davis, Angela Bassett, Danny Huston, director Joe Russo and Golden Globe nominee Spike Lee (director of the must-see BlakkKlansman). There was a reunion of the breakout cast of the hit Netflix film Dumplin’ with stars Danielle Macdonald, Luke Benward and Odeya Rush all stopping by.
