Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, the world’s leading luxury hospitality company, is strengthening its presence in the luxury hotel and residential space, and building on its position as the business partner of choice for luxury hotel, resort and residential projects.

With a pipeline of more than 50 projects at various stages of planning and development, the company continues to extend its global portfolio in destinations of importance to luxury travellers.

“Our aspiration is not to be the biggest; it’s to be the best,” says J. Allen Smith, President and CEO, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “We are singularly focused on serving the luxury consumer. Against the current backdrop of industry consolidation and commoditisation, there is tremendous opportunity to extend Four Seasons leadership in the pure luxury space.”

“But market dynamics alone do not guarantee success,” continues Smith. “Our ability to capitalise on these opportunities is directly related to the strength of our leadership team, and the ability of our people – the most passionate and talented in the industry – to deliver an unparalleled level of personalised service.”

This commitment to service excellence extends beyond the company’s service of its guests, continues Smith, “Extending the custom character of everything we do to help property owners realise the full value of their investment and relationship with Four Seasons is a top priority for us.”

Targeted Growth: 2017 and beyond  

Today Four Seasons opened its 9th hotel in China in Tianjin, and will extend its presence in several key markets in 2017 with the addition of second hotels in both London (Ten Trinity Square) and the Seychelles (Desroches Island), as well as adding a fourth property in Florida (Surfside). The company also plans to open hotels in new destinations including KuwaitMegève, and Tunis later this year.

Four Seasons has previously announced plans for hotels, resorts and residences in: MontrealLos Cabos, Bangkok, Madrid, Philadelphia, São Paulo, Bengaluru, and Kuala Lumpur, as well as second properties in both Boston and Tokyo.
