Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts is continuing to build its portfolio with openings in new and established markets this year. The luxury hotel brand will unveil nine new properties that include hotels, resorts, and residential offerings.

“We focus on projects of the highest quality, in the destinations where our guests want to be,” said Christian Clerc, president, worldwide hotel operations at Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, including entry into Greece and Spain and the first resort set within a world-class vineyard in Napa Valley.

Four Seasons will also open its first standalone residences in London as it looks to strengthen its position in the luxury branded residential market. In the next five years, the brand’s residential portfolio is expected to double. Following the opening of the company’s standalone Private Residences at Twenty Grosvenor Square this year, the brand will expand this exclusive collection with standalone Private Residences in Marrakech, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.

“Eight of the nine new anticipated openings this year include a residential component, affirming the growing importance of branded residences to Four Seasons’ growth strategy, as well as luxury consumers who want to live with our brand and make Four Seasons their home,” said Clerc.

Four Seasons operates 111 hotels and resorts in 47 countries, including recent openings in Desroches Island, Seychelles; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; and São Paulo, Brazil. Further down the pipeline, future projects recently announced include properties in Dalian, China; Makkah, Saudi Arabia; Hanoi, Vietnam; and Caye Chapel, Belize. 

Four Seasons will open the following new hotels, resorts and private residences in 2019.
