Royal Cliff Hotels Group will host the first ever Supermodel of Asia Pacific 2011 Beach Model, Best in Swimsuit Award Finals this weekend where supermodels from 30 Asia-Pacific countries will participate in the region’s first international Supermodel Contest, with the finals of the event to be held in Bangkok.

The local tourist attraction of Pattaya and Bangkok will be the backdrop highlight of the event, with the preliminary to the finals starting off at the Royal Cliff Hotels Group with the Beach Model, Best in Swimsuit finals. This glamourous event will see 30 beauties vying for this prestigious title at the spectacular Infini Edge Pool of the property’s Royal Cliff Beach Hotel.

Details of the events were announced at a press conference at the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) by Mrs. Jamnong Junnapiya, Executive Director for the East Asia Region, together with Mr. Pradit Pradinunt, Franchise Owner & CEO of Supermodel of Asia Pacific and main sponsor for the Supermodel of Asia Pacific 2011. The Royal Cliff Hotels Group was represented by the Director of Business Development, Mrs. Srisakun Footrakul. TAT is supporting the event in view of the extensive publicity value that would be generated from such a televised and widely-watched TV event, across all demographic target groups in the Asia Pacific, which is also now the fastest growing region for the Thai tourism industry.

The contest will feature supermodels from Australia, Bangladesh, China, Guam, India, Indonesia, Japan, Kazakhstan, Korea, Kyrgyzstan, Malaysia, Mongolia, New Zealand, Russia, Samoa, Singapore, Tonga, Vietnam, Thailand and other regional countries.  

The theme for the pageant is “Expanding international cultural and fashion development, and meeting worldwide demands, based on the beauty resources across the world.” 

The supermodels will be accommodated at the Royal Cliff Grand Hotel from the 16th – 18th September 2011, where a host of activities have been planned. The supermodels will be welcomed on arrival by the Royal Cliff Hotels Group’s senior management after which they will proceed for their planned activities around Pattaya.
