Finalists in the #visitelgouna Competition

We’ve loved seeing your entries flying in for our #VisitElGouna competition and now that it’s ended we are ready to make that ultimate choice – who will be the lucky one to jet off into the sun and enjoy a luxury El Gouna holiday worth £2,000? You? Maybe. We’ll see…

Before we decide your fate, we would like to thank every single one of you who entered, as we’ve been really inspired seeing such creativity and enthusiasm, so many thanks to all! We realise that you must all really want this holiday, so before the judge decides let us tell you a little more about what’s in store for the lucky winner!

If we had you at ‘Free Holiday’ then sit back and keep those fingers crossed, but if you’d like to find out more about where the winner gets to go, keep reading! El Gouna’s Club Paradisio Hotel is the destination where you will be able to enjoy a 7 night all-inclusive stay on the shores of the Red Sea, which is without a doubt one of the most luxurious destinations in Egypt!

Here you can enjoy all-inclusive benefits, comfortable accommodation and all the entertainment that comes with a superb four star hotel! Unfortunately you won’t be able to have all of the 239 rooms here you greedy person, but the one you do get will boast a stunning contemporary design, with lovely colours designed to make you feel chilled to the max!

You will be only a stones throw away from the Red Sea but thanks to the gorgeous soft sand there won’t be a stone anywhere in sight to throw even if you wanted to. The beautifully warm waters come inland via the network of connected lagoons, giving you even more beaches to enjoy close to the hotel. Spend a night on the town and probably the tiles by trying the El Gouna nightlife, which offers many lively bars and plenty of restaurants where you can choose from a variety of dishes.

Have steak at the Captain’s Steakhouse, enjoy Italian at Dolce Vita, try the fresh seafood at El Sayadin or try oriental dishes at Oriental 1001. The Dine Around Program makes it easy to eat wherever you are in the resort and there are many more places where you can enjoy delicious dishes! The hotel itself has two restaurants and three bars, so you won’t be far from food – or alcohol – at any one time!

Try the water sports such as wakeboarding, kitesurfing, diving and kayaking or simply go for a swim and snorkel to see the sea life. If you’ve had a heavy night touring the bars, why not simply chill by the pool and soak up the sun. There are also some great excursions to try and places to visit outside of the resort such as the Desert Breath shown below!

If this sounds like the holiday for you, best of luck to all those who entered and for those who didn’t, get ready for next time!  

The Finalists

So without further ado, please see below for the top 10 finalists, we think you’ll agree that all ten are worthy winners.


Fantastic use of props in public here and if only there was a bus that went straight to El Gouna, we’d take it every weekend!


Some folks will even endure pain to try and win one of our competitions – that makes us feel so honoured (and strangely happy)!


Absolutely superb job! Such creativity made us giggle but we are very impressed without a doubt!


Colourful, creative and most of all funny! We love imagination and when it makes you look a little weird, even better!


Looks like she’s all ready for a trip to El Gouna but there won’t be any need for a paper sun or inflatable palm tree that’s for sure! The amount of time it must have taken to make all those loom bands shows pure dedication.


Replace that background with El Gouna and you’re there! Great effort with colourful props and much enthusiasm!


Well it’s easy to see what he would get up to during the holiday and rightly so, the Red Sea is great for diving and snorkeling!


Extra marks for mentioning us in the words! So simple, yet so creative!


We love shadow art, especially when there are colourful props involved! Top marks for creativity!


Simple yet effective. Although, we are still left wondering how many attempts this took, very precise and neat writing. Well done!


The winners will be announced tomorrow at 12pm via our Facebook page. So stay tuned….
