Beyonce to kick off Red Sea resort party
Port Ghalib (Egypt), October 12, 2009
R&B superstar Beyonce Knowles will kick off the official launch party of Port Ghalib, the new luxury resort by the Red Sea, with her maiden performance in Egypt on November 6 amid 'record-setting' fireworks display.
This is Beyonce' debut show in the country and will form part of her “I AM… Sasha Fierce” global tour.
“Beyonce’ decision to perform here at Port Ghalib is great news and will only add to the resort’s growing reputation as one of the most exciting new luxury holiday destinations in the Middle East. She will have a fantastic time here - we’re looking forward to giving her a five-star welcome,” said Ibrahim Saleh, vice president of Al-Kharafi Group, the owner of Port Ghalib Resort Company.
Details of the concert tickets are on the resort's website. The opening concert holiday packages - including flights, hotel accommodation and special brunch and beach party activities - are also available.
Port Ghalib is serviced by Marsa Alam International Airport, which is situated five minutes from the hotel. The airport, one of the fastest growing in the Mena region, is preparing to deliver fans flying from destinations across the Middle East and Europe.
“Beyonce and her visiting fans will be spoilt for choice during their stay. By day they can relax on the beach or in the Six Senses Spa, or take part in one of the many outdoor activities that Port Ghalib is gaining a strong reputation for providing, from scuba diving to desert safaris. By night they can browse the traditional Egyptian souk or eat and drink in the several bars and restaurants the resort has to offer,” Saleh added.
The resort has already hosted a number of high profile VIPs including a number of pop stars and the Philippine President, he said.-TradeArabia News Service
