HKS London designs Four Seasons Resort Agadir Morocco

Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts announced a third addition to its Moroccan portfolio with plans to open a new property in the resort town of Agadir on Morocco’s Atlantic coast.

The largest seaside resort town in Morocco, Agadir 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, the traditional pedestrian quarter common in North African cities.

The new resort is expected to open in 2016.

Four Seasons Resort Agadir will consist of 132 rooms and suites in addition to 56 private residences, set on 45 acres of beachfront located within the Taghazout Bay area. For the development of a Four Seasons in Agadir, the company invested close to $120 million.

The architectural group assigned to the project will be the HKS London. The new Four Seasons Resort Agadir will be the third Four Seasons property 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.
