Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts said it will open four new properties in the Americas and one in Europe in the coming year.

The San Domenico Palace in Taormina on the east coast of Sicily will be reflagged as a Four Seasons property in 2021.  The hotel was built on the original structures of a former Dominican monastery that dated back to 1430.  The palace was transformed into a hotel in 1896 by the nobleman Damiano Rosso, a descendant of the monastery’s founders.  It comprises two main buildings, the Ancient Convent where the monks’ cells originally were as well as the Grand Hotel wing, which was added in 1896.

In addition, the Four Seasons Resort Tamarindo, set on a 2,000-acre (800-hectare) eco-reserve, will open on Mexico’s Pacific coast and will offer guests a golf club, multiple beaches, and other recreational activities.

The list also includes the Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences New Orleans, the Four Seasons Resort and Residences Napa Valley, and the Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Fort Lauderdale.

The Napa Valley property is in Calistoga and will be the first Four Seasons resort with its own winery and vineyard. It will offer guests two outdoor pools, a wellness-focused spa, and a restaurant helmed by Chef Erik Anderson.

In New Orleans, the riverfront property will partner with Chef Alon Shaya, who will develop a restaurant for the 34-story hotel.

Finally, the oceanfront Fort Lauderdale property will be designed by the Miami-based architecture firm Kobi Karp and the grounds will be designed by Panamanian landscape architect Fernando Wong.  Wong is known for using classical architectural principles in his designs.
