El Gouna is unique as a Red Sea leisure destination due to its harmony and completeness as a town. Careful planning, superb architecture, and competent management have ensured that the resort's many attractions are contained in a beautiful, immaculate and aesthetically unified setting.
The resort's award-winning architecture brings together a blend of traditional and modern elements and is the work of an impressive list of prestigious architects including Italian Alfredo Freda and American Michael Graves. Here, a creative and diverse community of entrepreneurs, artists, environmentalists, and sports enthusiasts make their home and give the town an eclectic and sophisticated international flavor.
The town's developer, Orascom Hotels & Development remains actively involved in the town, managing the day-to-day maintenance and upkeep of the city's power grid, water works, roads, school, library, hospital, golf course, marina, and security for all residents.
