Four Seasons announces two new hotels in Morocco
Following Four Seasons Resort Marrakech, which opened in June 2011, and the announcement of Four Seasons Hotel Casablanca, which is due to open in late 2014, Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts confirms the opening in Agadir of its third hotel in Morocco. Four Seasons Resort Agadir will consist of 132 rooms and suites in addition to 56 Private Residences, set on 18 hectares (45 acres) of prime beachfront located within the Taghazout Bay area.
The largest seaside resort town in Morocco, Agadir has long been a favoured destination for local and international visitors and is currently home to one of the country’s most highly-anticipated resort developments at Taghazout Bay, which will be home to the new Four Seasons Resort Agadir. The Taghazout Bay project will include several hotels, two golf courses, residential properties and a central village and medina.
Christopher W. Norton, President Hotel Operations, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, yesterday signed a formal agreement with Ali Wakrim, Vice President of AKWA GROUP, the development’s ownership group, announcing plans for the new Resort, which is expected to open in 2016. Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal’s Kingdom Holding owns a 47.5 percent stake in the Four Seasons Resort Agadir.
