Somabay with its breathtaking landscape, sea scenery, diving spots and luxurious hotels & spas, makes the perfect getaway for solo travelers, friends trips, couples and families.

Last weekend, Somabay hosted a number of beauty pageant winners, for an exciting, thrilling and one of a kind experience! The winners got to witness the uniqueness of the destination, and the various activities available.

The event was also attended by a number of influencers, who as well, got to experience the lavish lifestyle at Somabay.

In day 1, attendees stayed at The Cascades Golf Resort, Spa & Thalasso, followed by a welcome dinner. The next day, they participated in a cooking competition with famous TV Presenter and home cooking guru Chef Andrew Mitchell, who is a resident at Somabay.

The queens were challenged to create an Egyptian dish, and the judges were Somabay team and of course Chef Mitchell. 

Day 3 was a white beach party, that included several fun activities and entertainment. International DJs Milo Häfliger, Fulltone & Sebzz had everyone on their feet the whole day.

Sea, salt, sand, wind and GOOD VIBES ONLY!

Guests were also pampered with lasso therapy at the spa, that offers abundant treatments across its 65 treatment rooms and seawater based services.

On the last day of the event, guests got to rewind and relax with a sunrise Yoga session with Suzy at the Golf course. Then they were off to check the real-estate properties in Somabay. At night, they got to enjoy an oriental Bedouin Dinner, at Layalina Café.

I bet it doesn’t get any more relaxing than this!

The overall experience was splendid, and it was the perfect way to pause reality and skip the city for a change. We sure will be back soon, because such an incredible scenery is hard to stay away from.

The official transference of 22 mummies, 18 pharaohs and four queens from The Egyptian museum in heart of Cairo to the next nucleus of Egyptian history and culture, The National Museum of Egyptian Civilization. This momentous event came to being after a year long preparation in which the efforts of key individuals led to an unparalleled display which captivated millions across the globe. The colossal effort behind the scenes owe its thanks to several companies and individuals.

The phenomenal production by Kokoro Agency heads Production Designer and Art Director Mohamed Attia and partner Shady Ezz, oversaw the process to ensure the visually distinct nature of the Golden Parade. Following the event Mohamed Attia “The happiness and pride of the people come from how we as Egyptians are capable. That we’re capable of meeting the international standard, with it being accomplished yesterday before the eyes of every Egyptian and the world.” This substantial work stands as an example of Egyptian creativity and attention to detail which Shady Ezz remarked “after a year and a half worth of preparation, I’m delighted with the domestic and international reception”. Having successfully captured the grandiosity and awe inspiring spectacle of the Ancient Egyptians Kokoro and everyone involved in the production of the Parade have forged work that has earned the pride of Egyptians everywhere.

The visual journey that was embarked upon by every viewer who witnessed the parade was one guided by the hand of DOP and Director Mazen El Motagawel.

Through intricate rehearsals and preparation, he ensured that every second that was viewed on air deserved to be cemented in the minds and hearts of Egyptians. The parade necessitated a delicate touch and a carefully orchestrated sequence of events, which presented substantial challenges which required an unmatched creativity to ensure such a vision comes to fruition. He stated that “the lighting design was extremely technically demanding regarding how to manage lighting on such a grand scale, especially the coordination between the parade and the visual elements”. Mazen El Motagawel’s work was complemented by Ahmed El Morsi’s remarkable directing and filming the retelling of ancient Egyptian history by prominent Egyptian actors as well as the official anthem by the acclaimed artist Mohamed Mounir.
