Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts is adding a new resort in Puglia on Italy’s southern coastline.
The upcoming Four Seasons property will be comprised of 150 rooms and suites. The seaside location will offer guests views of the Adriatic Sea and direct beach access.
Puglia makes up the heel of Italy’s “boot” and is home to ancient towns with rich histories, national parks, soaring mountains, exceptional food and wine, pristine beaches and a Mediterranean climate. Ostuni, the local city a short drive from the Resort, is also known as the “White City” for its white-washed houses and buildings carved into the cliffside, medieval streets, and its 15th century Gothic cathedral.
Resort accommodation will be housed in villa-style units, all facing the sea, and is being designed by HKS Architects, an award-winning international design firm that has previously worked with Four Seasons on projects in the Bahamas, Tunis, and Egypt, while interior design is being led by ODA Architecture.
Onsite facilities will include six restaurants and bars including a specialty restaurant, a seasonal pool bar and grill, a lobby lounge bar, a signature bar and a beach club. The state-of-the-art destination spa will include a fitness centre, 10 treatment rooms, hammam, sauna, pool and yoga studio.
“As we grow as a brand, our focus is on opening hotels in the world’s best travel destinations, and in markets where we can introduce an elevated luxury experience. In Puglia, we are achieving both of these goals, and this is the perfect project to expand our presence in Italy with our partners at Omnam Investment Group, led by David Zisser,” says John Davison, President and CEO, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “We look forward to setting the standard for luxury hospitality in this beautiful region, creating opportunities to discover more of this incredible country with Four Seasons.”
The new property is being developed in partnership with real estate investor and developer, Omnam Group, which acquired the site at the end of 2020.
“As more and more travellers discover Puglia, we look forward to delivering the best luxury lifestyle offering in the region, not only through exceptional design and amenities, but through renowned Four Seasons service,” said David Zisser, Founder and CEO, Omnam Group.
The Resort will be located 40 kilometres (25 miles) from Brindisi International Airport and 95 kilometres (60 miles) from Bari International Airport, and is also accessible via direct train from Rome.
Four Seasons new Resort in Puglia will join Four Seasons growing collection of properties in Italy, including Four Seasons Hotel Firenze, Four Seasons Hotel Milano, and the upcoming San Domenico Palace, Taormina, A Four Seasons Hotel.
