Model Days For Hilton Ras Al Khaimah Resort & Spa
Resort Hosts Miss Czech Republic 2009 Schooling Session; Sponsor Skymax Holidays Marks Ras Al Khaimah As Hot New Destination
June 23, 2009
RAS AL KHAIMAH, UAE - The temperature soared at the Hilton Ras Al Khaimah Resort & Spa yesterday (June 22, 2009) as Miss Czech Republic 2009 contestants put on a fashion show for an audience of dignitaries, celebrities and invitees, in preparation for the pageant set to take place in Prague this October.
The high-profile event was followed by a gala dinner attended by Ambassador Věra Jeřábková, Ambassador of the Czech Republic to UAE and popular Czech entertainers Lucie Bílá and Karel Gott.
"It has been a delight hosting the the Miss Czech Republic 2009 contestants and we wish them all the best for the final event. We hope their time in Ras Al Khaimah has been special despite the rigors of training, and that they will return," said Mohab Ghali, Cluster General Manager, Hilton Hotels in Ras Al Khaimah.
"Due to the huge popularity of the pageant in Eastern Europe, an event of this magnitude is a milestone for Ras Al Khaimah and Hilton Ras Al Khaimah Resort & Spa. It sheds light on the emirate's natural assets and at the same time highlights the quality of product and service on offer here."
Hilton Ras Al Khaimah Resort & Spa has maximised Ras Al Khaimah's reputation as a budding holiday haven, blending sumptuous hospitality with local flavour. The resort will launch its third and final phase in October adding an additional 165 rooms to the 151 chalets and 161-room main hotel to accommodate the influx of short-term travellers as well as holidaymakers to the region.
Miss Czech Republic 2009 sponsors Skymax Holidays and Blue Style Travel Agency Czech Republic have also identified Ras Al Khaimah as a key destination, recently launching a new holiday package to the emirate and are actively promoting it in the Czech Republic as a new holiday hotspot.
From June 17-24, the group of young hopefuls were put through their paces and prepared for the pageant in October when the country's representative to Miss World, the world's most prestigious beauty event, will be chosen. The eight-day training composed of intensive classes on all aspects of the competition including walking the ramp, fielding questions and photo shoots.
The week of schooling culminated in a show-stopping catwalk event that featured all the contestants in Walid Atallah designs. The cream of the Czech community in the UAE congregated at the resort to cheer on the group aspiring to be the country's next supermodel and cultural ambassador.
"Ras Al Khaimah offers an exotic hideaway for tourists from our part of the world. It is markedly different from the other emirates - be it in scenic beauty, its rugged landscape or in its pace of life. As international tourists' demand for the authentic Arabic experience grows, Ras Al Khaimah provides us with the perfect solution - unpolluted, developed and rich in culture, history and personality. By holding the event at Hilton Ras Al Khaimah Resort & Spa, we hope to spotlight the location, world-class hospitality offerings and forge a strong partnership for all our activities in the region," Khaled Samy, Skymax Holidays.
The Hilton Ras Al Khaimah Resort & Spa is tucked away in a private bay overlooking the Arabian Sea and offers guests the chance to experience breath-taking skylines, a relaxed atmosphere, superior service as well as rich culture all within the confines of one of the region's most sumptuous resorts.
