Jumeirah has been appointed to manage a luxury 250-room hotel on the mixed-use development of Palm Gamsha, an integrated community of more than 20 man-made islands forming the shape of a seahorse, located 47km north west of Hurghada airport.

Guests will be able to take advantage of the region’s renowned tourist activities and attractions, including bird watching, hiking, golf, diving, desert safaris and visiting archaeological sites, the company said in a statement.
