"We are fortunate to work in partnership with Paralelo 19 who have a deep understanding of the area and share our vision for creating the very best luxury experiences. Against the backdrop of this spectacular destination, we look forward to elevating the luxury resort offering together very soon."

The highly acclaimed 18-hole, par 72, Robert Trent Jones Jr. and David Fleming designed links golf course will round out the amenities.
The property will be led by Four Seasons veteran of more than 25 years, Felix Murillo. Felix joined Four Seasons in 1993 at Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane, and has since held roles at 12 Four Seasons properties throughout the United States, Latin America, Europe and Africa, most recently as General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel Lion Palace St. Petersburg.
