Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts and Omnam Group, a global real estate firm, have unveiled plans for a new resort in Puglia, in the stunning and increasingly popular coastal region of southern Italy.
Located on a beachfront property, the new Four Seasons Resort property will feature 150 rooms and suites. The exclusive seaside location will offer guests views of the Adriatic Sea and direct beach access, along with easy accessibility to the nearby historic town of Ostuni and other attractions in the region.
“As more and more travelers discover Puglia, we look forward to delivering the best luxury lifestyle offering in the region, not only through exceptional design and amenities but through renowned Four Seasons service,” said David Zisser, Omnam Group founder and CEO.
Puglia makes up the heel of Italy’s ‘boot’ and is home to ancient towns with rich histories, national parks, mountains, exceptional food and wine, pristine beaches and a Mediterranean climate. Ostuni, the local city just a short drive from the planned 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.
Located within a 40-minute drive from such towns as Ostuni, Alberobello and Monopoli, the Four Seasons in Puglia Italy will be one of few hotels in the region with direct beach access. Accommodations will be housed in villa-style units, all facing the sea. The property is being designed by HKS Architects, an award-winning international design firm that has previously worked with Four Seasons on projects in the Bahamas, Tunis, and Egypt.
Onsite facilities will include:
- six restaurants and bars, 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.
- extensive meeting and event spaces, including a ballroom and smaller meeting rooms in a designated building, as well as additional outdoor event offerings.
- state-of-the-art destination spa will include a fitness center, 10 treatment rooms, hammam spa, sauna, pool and yoga studio.
The resort will be located 40 kilometres (25 miles) from Brindisi International Airport and 95 kilometres (60 miles) from Bari International Airport; it will also be accessible via direct train from Rome. Four Seasons Resort 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.
