Hotel Project in the Works for Egypt

In a Travel Agent exclusive, Spa guru Susan Harmsworth, founder and CEO of ESPA, said she has just entered negotiations to design and construct a spa for a new hotel in Egypt. Details are scarce, and Harmsworth would not elaborate on even the name of the hotel company involved, but she added, that if everything goes through, "it will be the biggest project in Egypt." The hotel is not yet built, she said, adding of the site, "It's just desert and seas." She did mention, however, that architect Sir Norman Foster would likely design the hotel. ESPA currently has 60 spas under construction around the world.
