SHARM EL SHEIKH: Eco-friendly city wins UNESCO award
UNESCO awarded Sharm El Sheikh the title of \"City of Peace\" at a ceremony in Marrakesh last week. The title is given to cities that have overcome serious difficulties to create a livable and cohesive urban environment that can serve as models to other cities.
Sharm El Sheik was awarded the prize for its efforts to prevent environmental damage.
Perched on the tip of the Sinai Peninsula, the town is remote from mainland Egypt. Until the peninsula was returned to Egyptian sovereignty by Israel in 1982, Sharm El Sheik was a bedouin village. In the past two decades, it has grown into a major beach resort and conference center with nearly 22,000 hotel rooms. Such rapid expansion threatened to destroy coral reefs and the desert ecosystem, but strict controls and careful planning contained the danger. \"We are a world class environmental city,\" said the mayor of Sharm El Sheik. \"We ensure everyone is responsible for the coherent development of the town and its resources.\" To protect the wildlife and marine life, the town, in consultation with environmentalists, has passed laws to prevent development of the fragile ecosystems.

A New Four Seasons Resort in Sharm El Sheikh

Will be opened end of May 2002, located at the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt, Four Seasons Resort Sharm El Sheikh will feature approximately 141 guest rooms, 112 chalets and 34 luxurious villas. The Resort will be integrated into the terraced slopes to recreate the image of an ancient Egyptian hillside town and to optimize Red Sea views. The main building will house the majority of public spaces, including a lobby, two restaurants, meeting rooms and a health club. Other recreational facilities will include a spa and beauty salon, two tennis courts, freshwater swimming pools, a unique “floating” salt-water pool, a water sports and scuba-diving pavilion and a marina.
