Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts has its eye "firmly fixed" on the Middle East region, Hotelier Middle East is reporting. Three properties will launch next year (Four Seasons Dubai, Bahrain Bay and Four Seasons Casablanca), followed by a further four resorts in Abu Dhabi, Oman, Kuwait and Jeddah within the next five years.
The new additions to the Four Seasons’ portfolio are part of "ambitious global growth plans" announced by the chain, the report continues; 60 Four Season projects are currently under development.
Having recently announced that its first 237-room Dubai property is on target to open in the final quarter of 2014, the chain is also continuing to develop its island-occupying Bahrain Bay and Four Seasons Hotel Casablanca properties; both are scheduled to open during the second quarter of next year.
Beyond 2014, active properties in the preliminary stages include hotels in Abu Dhabi, Oman, Kuwait and Jeddah, consolidating the brand’s ever-growing presence in the region.
