Four Seasons commits to growth as it turns 60

A global leader in the luxury hospitality industry for 60 years, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts is looking ahead to the future with a growing portfolio of luxury hotels, resorts and residential developments, and further expansion of its product offering in 2021 and beyond.

“In a time of unprecedented change and challenge for our company and the entire hospitality industry, we continue to innovate, remaining flexible in our plans and nimble in our ability to capitalise on opportunities, while maintaining momentum towards our long-term goals,” says John Davison, President and CEO, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “The impacts of the pandemic continue, and we are tackling these issues as they come. Yet more than ever, we are confident in the long-term success of the company and the dedication and resilience of our people who bring the Four Seasons brand to life each and every day. Our focus on the guest experience is steadfast, as is our ability to embrace new opportunities and continue to evolve.”

Adds Davison: “As we mark the 60th anniversary of the opening of the very first Four Seasons, it’s an opportunity to reaffirm the values upon which the company was founded. We are growing with great intention, never losing sight of the values of respect, care and excellence that have always defined Four Seasons. As we look ahead, we remain singularly focused on the luxury segment, responding to the changing needs of our guests and building upon the well-established trust and credibility of our brand.”

This year, following the very successful opening of Twenty Grosvenor Square, Four Seasons will unveil three new standalone residential projects, including the first Four Seasons residences in Los Angeles, as well as new residential offerings in San Francisco and Marrakech. Currently, Four Seasons has a five-year pipeline of $6 billion in gross sales value comprising 30 projects around the world, with 14 due to commence sales this year alone.

Most recently, Four Seasons announced its expansion in Europe with an exceptional Mediterranean property. In Italy’s southern region of Puglia, Four Seasons will be one of few beachfront hotels with direct access to the sea, developing an all-new resort with views from Italy’s stunning Adriatic coast. And, following the opening of Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Madrid in late 2020, Four Seasons will continue to expand its Spanish portfolio with a resort in Mallorca, as the brand will manage the historic Hotel Formentor, introducing it as a Four Seasons experience in 2023.

Offering a mix of state-of-the-art new builds and historic restoration projects, upcoming Four Seasons openings will provide unique opportunities to explore some of the world’s most exciting destinations. In the United States, Four Seasons will enter new markets such as Napa Valley, New Orleans, Fort Lauderdale, Minneapolis and Nashville with new hotels and Private Residences. In Taormina, Italy and Cartagena, Colombia, Four Seasons is bringing new life to historic properties while maintaining their legacy and charm. Adding to a growing resort portfolio, Four Seasons will introduce an all-new secluded oceanfront oasis in Tamarindo, México.
