Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts continues to expand its global portfolio with six new openings planned for 2020.

The brand is returning to Bangkok with the new Jean-Michel Gathy-designed property along the Chao Phraya River, debuting with nearly 300 guest rooms and over 350 Private Residences. Also opening in the Asia-Pacific region early in the year is a third address in Japan, in the Otemachi area of Tokyo facing the Tokyo Imperial Palace. 

In Europe, Four Seasons will debut in Spain for the first time with a new hotel in central Madrid, an assembly of several historic buildings now fully restored and reimagined, and highlighted by a rooftop restaurant by three Michelin-starred Spanish celebrity chef Dani García. 

With seven existing locations in California, Four Seasons continues to expand its presence in the northern part of the state with the spring opening of its second hotel in San Francisco's Embarcadero district. Also scheduled for 2020 is the opening of a Four Seasons resort in Napa Valley, including a collection of Private Residences and the first on-property winery in partnership with acclaimed winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown. 

Also in the United States, a recently announced hotel in New Orleans is expected to open in late 2020 in the city's historic World Trade Center. 

"As we begin a new decade, we continue to elevate the experience for our guests and enhance our product offering, affirming our passionate dedication to excellence and the industry-leading innovation that has defined our brand for nearly 60 years," says John Davison, President and Chief Executive Officer, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. 

Each new development will reflect the character of the destination, said the company in a news release.

Last year, Four Seasons celebrated a significant number of new openings around the world, including its first entry into Greece with the Astir Palace Hotel in Athens, and the company's return to Montreal with a sleek new hotel in the heart of the city's Golden Mile, featuring the opening of the restaurant MARCUS with celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson. 

Additional openings included a new hotel in the Garden City of Bengaluru, its second in India; the return of the brand to Philadelphia (located within the Comcast Center, the city's tallest building) as well as a second hotel in Boston at One Dalton Street; a third address in Mexico, this time on the beaches of the East Cape of Los Cabos; the company's first all-inclusive wellness retreat in the fully refurbished Lodge at Koele on the Hawaiian Island of Lanai; and the completion of its full suite of historic chalet offerings in the French Alpine community of Megève. 

Also in 2019, Four Seasons announced plans for a new, fully customized Four Seasons Private Jet that will take luxury travel to new heights as it continues the journey first introduced in 2015.

Looking further ahead, the brand has also unveiled plans for new hotels in Okinawa, Japan; Nashville and Minneapolis, U.S.; Cartagena, Colombia; and a second resort in Cabo del Sol, Mexico. The company also previously announced new Four Seasons projects in Dalian, China; Makkah, Saudi Arabia; Hanoi, Vietnam; and Caye Chapel, Belize.
