Slated to open in late 2023, the property will feature just over 200 rooms, suites and oversized private villas.
Other guest amenities will include a spa, fully equipped gym, lakeside jogging track, indoor and outdoor pools, and a fully supervised Kids for All Seasons facility.
Dining venues at the hotel include a Chinese restaurant featuring seven private dining rooms, an all-day dining restaurant catering diverse range of international cuisine, a lobby lounge and lobby bar serving selected tea, beverages and snacks as well as an Executive Lounge.
In addition, Four Seasons Hotel Suzhou will house a grand ballroom, a multi-function room and several meeting rooms featuring advanced equipment.
Four Seasons global business development and portfolio management president Bart Carnahan said: “We are proud to continue our partnership with Sun Hung Kai Properties after our successful collaboration with the acclaimed Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong and look forward to building on our relationship with this landmark project in Suzhou.
“China is an important market for us, and it is with great excitement that we expand our portfolio with this exceptional project in Suzhou, giving international and domestic guests a new and unique opportunity to experience Four Seasons in the region.”
Four Seasons Hotel Suzhou, which will be led by general manager Arthur Ho, will include 9ha of a private island surrounded by the Jinji Lake.
It takes half an hour by train or an hour by car to reach the hotel from Shanghai.
In August this year, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts announced plans to open three new properties in Egypt.
