Four Seasons and Omnam Group announce plans for luxury retreat in Southern Italy

As we grow as a brand, our focus is on opening hotels in the world’s best travel destinations
– John Davison

Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts and global real estate firm and developer Omnam Group have revealed plans to build a new resort and spa in Puglia, the stunning coastal region of southern Italy.

Located on a pristine beachfront property, the upcoming 150-key resort will offer guests views of the Adriatic Sea and access to a state-of-the-art destination spa with a fitness centre, 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,” says John Davison, Four Seasons president and CEO.

“We look forward to setting the standard for luxury hospitality in this beautiful region, creating opportunities to discover more of this incredible country with Four Seasons.”

Puglia makes up the heel of Italy’s “boot” and is home to ancient towns with rich histories, national parks, soaring mountains, exceptional food and wine, pristine beaches and a Mediterranean climate.

Resort accommodation will consist of luxury villa-style units, all facing the sea and realised by award-winning international design firm HKS Architects, with interior design completed by ODA Architecture.

Additional onsite facilities will include six restaurant and bar offerings and extensive meeting and event spaces.

“We acquired this amazing plot of land in Puglia at the end of 2020 together with our trusted partners, led by Adam Hudaly from IAC investments,” said David Zisser, founder and CEO of Omnam Group.

“We’re always looking for opportunities to create something unique and unexpected with each new project, and we’re very excited to do exactly that with the iconic Four Seasons brand.”

Four Seasons’ new Resort in Puglia will join its growing collection of Italian properties, including Four Seasons Hotel Firenze, Four Seasons Hotel Milano and the upcoming San Domenico Palace, Taormina, A Four Seasons Hotel.

The brand is currently operating 119 hotels and resorts and 44 residential properties in 47 countries, with more than 50 projects under planning or development.
