Four Seasons to Open a Resort on the Island of Okinawa in Japan

(Four Seasons Resort and Private Residences Okinawa)

After teaming up to open the Four Seasons Hotel and Residences Kyoto in December 2016, partners Four Seasons and Berjaya Okinawa Development are planning their second hospitality project in Japan. Four Seasons Resort and Private Residences Okinawa will be part of a $400 million development slated to open in four years.

The resort will be situated on 100 acres of beach on the western coast of the island, about 30 miles northeast of Naha International Airport. Expect 100 hotel rooms, 120 residences and 40 villas by award-winning architects Kengo Kuma and Okinawa-based Kuniken. Notable, Kengo Kuma was chosen to design Tokyo’s Olympic Stadium for the 2020 Olympic Games. The resort aims to celebrate Okinawa’s rich cultural heritage and natural landscapes, and guests will be able to explore the grounds on foot, bicycle, or golf cart. Amenities will include a beach club, multiple dining outlets, boutiques, and other recreational facilities.  

Okinawa is the fifth largest island in Japan, located 300 miles north of Taiwan, and it was the site of an important battle during the Second World War (the American military continues to use the island as a strategic base).
