For the third time the Top Model of the World takes place in the self-contained town on the beautiful Red Sea coast, El Gouna. El Gouna, Red Sea offers an unrivaled lifestyle and our Models from around the World are enjoying each time and also returning for vacation.
Built on 10 km of beach with 17 spectacular hotels, the town of over 22,000 residents spreads across islands and lagoons. Boasting a superb infrastructure and excellent services, the destination is a short flight from Europe. Conveniently located 25 kilometers north of Hurghada, El Gouna is only a 4-hour flight from Europe’s major capitals. But even a long distance flight is worth it to visit this beautiful place.
El Gouna is easily accessed from Europe via the nearby Hurghada International Airport and boasts a superb infrastructure and excellent services as well as natural beaches and year-round sunshine.
The town’s location offers good access to Egypt’s many natural wonders, historical sites, and archeological treasures. The ancient temples of Luxor and Aswan are only a bus away. Day and overnight trips to Luxor, Aswan, Cairo, and Sinai are easily arranged from El Gouna. The town’s unique blend of traditional and modern elements are the result of the dedication and work of an impressive list of prestigious architects. American Michael Graves, the winner of many of the architectural world’s highest awards, designed several of El Gouna’s hotels, Golf Club,and Golf Villas. The earth tones and sea-color splashes which characterize these projects helped to set the tone of the resort
Italian architect Alfredo Freda designed El Gouna’s attractive Marina town, the first of its kind on the Red Sea, as well as the popular and exclusive Tuscany-style Hill Villas. ShahabMazhar, a prominent Egyptian architect, was inspired by Mediterranean influences in his creation of the beachfront White Villas. And the beautiful Nubian Villas are the work of the award-winning architects Ramy El-Dahan and Ahmad Hamdy, who also hail from Egypt. No wonder that the 22nd Top Model of the World Pageant will be successful as in previous years and this year we even have a stunning opening of the contestants in their National Costumes – reserve now your seat for the TOP MODEL OF THE WORLD Pageant on September 4th, 2015
