Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts will bring its brand of luxury to Southern Italy with a brand-new resort in the coastal region of Puglia.
Located on pristine beachfront property, the upcoming Four Seasons property will be comprised of 150 rooms and suites in villa-style units, all facing the sea. The exclusive seaside location will offer guests views of the Adriatic Sea and direct beach access, one of few hotels in the region to do so.
Additional onsite facilities will include six restaurant and bar offerings, including an all-day restaurant, a specialty restaurant, a seasonal pool bar and grill, a lobby lounge bar, a signature bar, and a beach club. The resort will also include extensive meeting and event spaces including a ballroom and smaller meeting rooms in a designated building, as well as additional outdoor event offerings. The destination spa will include a fitness center, 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,” said John Davison, President, and CEO of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.
The property will be located 25 miles from Brindisi International Airport and 60 miles from Bari International Airport and is also accessible via direct train from Rome. 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.
The 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.
The resort currently has no opening date, but Four Seasons says the plans are in the works to add the property to the company's portfolio.
