Overall value

Set amidst the breathtaking backdrop of majestic mountains and offering sweeping views of the Red Sea from an elevation of 60m above sea level, City Stars Sharm Resort stands as a sprawling 750 Ha development. This vast expanse encompasses both residential and mixed-use spaces, setting itself apart as a haven for luxury and leisure. The development houses an array of facilities such as hotels, retail spaces, cultural centers, sports arenas, and spaces dedicated to leisure and tourism.

One of the most striking features of City Stars Sharm Resort is its expansive 12.5 Ha of shimmering Crystal Lagoons. Coupled with a staggering 22 kilometers of pristine white sandy beaches, these lagoons have made a mark in history. Specifically, as of 2015, the Citystars Sharm El Sheikh development proudly claimed the Guinness World Record for creating the largest man-made crystalline lagoon. These water bodies aren't just aesthetic marvels; they are hubs of activity where residents and visitors can indulge in sailing, swimming, and a myriad of water sports that span across the vast development.

Further diving into the specifics of the City Stars Sharm Resort project, it boasts seven hotels affiliated with the renowned InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG). Alongside these luxurious accommodations, the development is dotted with several upscale residential districts, each housing opulent villas and modern apartment complexes. For those in pursuit of retail therapy, a state-of-the-art commercial mall graces the development. Moreover, the entire area is seamlessly integrated with comprehensive infrastructure, including essential services, utilities, well-laid roads, and meticulous landscaping work that complements the natural beauty of the location.

Golf enthusiasts can revel in the 18-hole signature golf course, a masterpiece designed by the esteemed golfer, Colin Montgomerie. As with many large-scale developments, expert consultation is essential. Recognizing this need, DG Jones and Partners were brought on board to offer their expertise in cost management consultancy during the initial, pre-contract phase of the project, ensuring it was planned efficiently from a financial perspective.
