On 22 January 2019, Berjaya Okinawa Development Co. Ltd. ("Berjaya Okinawa"), a wholly-owned
subsidiary of Malaysian group Berjaya Land Berhad ("BLand") and Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts,
the world's leading luxury hospitality company, announced its new development on the island of
Okinawa, the Four Seasons Resort and Private Residences Okinawa ("Four Seasons Okinawa").
Comprising 30 acres of development land area, the Four Seasons Okinawa is located along the western coast of the island, approximately 50 kilometres northeast of Naha International Airport, with easy access by highway from the airport and close to tourist attractions. The project will have 120 hotel rooms, 120 residences and 40 villas. It is expected to take approximately four years to complete with a total development cost of USD 400 million and estimated gross development value of USD 1 billion.
The vision is to create a destination that portrays the cultural heritage of Okinawa island along with its natural landscape and resources. The Four Seasons Okinawa will be anchored by a resident beach club nestled on the east side, where guests as well as the homeowners will be able to access the natural beach. Additionally, the low-density layout of the resort will also allow guests and homeowners to access every amenity by foot, bicycles or golf carts. The resort facilities will include an all-day dining restaurant, specialty dining and lounge, retail shops, recreation facilities, as well as public grounds and gardens.
