Four Seasons to Open Five New Properties in 2015
Four Seasons is opening five new properties in 2015 in Hawaii, Morocco, Korea, Bahrain and Florida.
Ko Olina, Hawaii
On the third largest Hawaiian island, Four Seasons Resort O‘ahu at Ko Olina, meaning “Place of Joy,” is situated on the sun drenched side of this beautiful oasis and will have 365 hotel rooms and 180 private residences, all enjoying the awe-inspiring views. Slated to open in late 2015, Four Seasons will breathe new life into the existing Ilihani Resort, designed by world-famous architect Edward Killingsworth.
With 186 rooms and suites ideally situated on the city’s oceanfront promenade, Four Seasons Hotel Casablanca is part of Anfa Place, a luxury mixed use development near the upscale Corniche District. This urban oasis in the heart of a busy economic hub slated to open in mid-2015, is the second Four Seasons hotel in Morocco and offers guests sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean and exquisite Moroccan sunset. The hotel’s top floor will be transformed into a French brasserie and bar and its world class Spa will offer guests a mix of progressive western and local therapies, including a traditional hammam experience.
Its first hotel in Korea and slated to open in late 2015, Four Seasons Hotel Seoul is ideally situated in the Central Business District of Jongno-gu, the epicentre of Korean finance, politics and culture, boasting excellent views of the skyline. Major tourist sites are also nearby including World Heritage Changdeokgung Palace. The 317 room, 25-storey building site contains the foundations of the 15th century Dangjudong 26 building, a government structure that was part of the ancient Gyeongbokgung Palace. To catch a glimpse of the excavation, guests can look down through the glass floor in the feature restaurant. The Hotel will feature nine restaurants and bars (from a street side bakery to fine dining Chinese restaurant and hidden speakeasy-style bar) and a state-of-the-art fitness facility, complete with 3-D golf simulators and private membership club facilities.
Kingdom of Bahrain
Occupying its own private island, Four Seasons Hotel Bahrain Bay will give new meaning to urban paradise when it opens its doors in early 2015. Towering over the Arabian Gulf and Manama city skyline, the dramatic structure offers panoramic views from its 273 guest rooms and especially from its striking two-story Sky Bridge. Beyond the spectacular sights, the news creating the most buzz is culinary: international restaurateur and Michelin-starred Chef Wolfgang Puck will be opening two signature restaurants and a new bar and lounge on the property.
Miami will be home to a second Four Seasons, with the exciting Four Seasons style revival of the legendary Surf Club, a 1930s landmark that once played host to both Hollywood and royalty such as Elizabeth Taylor and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. Scheduled to open late 2015, Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club, the brand’s fourth property in Florida, will have approximately 80 rooms, while The Surf Club Four Seasons Private Residences will offer 150 homes and penthouses in two towers. Designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Richard Meier, both will offer beach living at its best, with direct access to 965 feet (300 metres) of Atlantic oceanfront.
