The Experience

Four Seasons Resort Carmelo

We have the pleasure to tell you that from May 6 – July 7th, 2013, the Resort was undergoing renovations to enhance our product.

New guest walk ways; extensive spa maintenance; refresh of the entrance and gardens; telephone upgrade and re-cabling of the resort for 2013 and beyond.

We also have a new yoga studio with river views.

Arriving in Carmelo is an inspiring experience. The air is fresh and clear, fragrant with pine and eucalyptus; the climate is temperate year-round and the landscape is dominated by forest and vineyards. Adjacent to pristine woodland and expansive savannah, Four Seasons Resort Carmelo, Uruguay, is several minutes away from the quiet village of Carmelo, and just one hour from the charming town of Colonia, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Four Seasons is the perfect base from which to explore this fascinating territory.  Four Seasons Resort Carmelo is only a 30-minute flight from Buenos Aires and 155 miles or a 3-hour drive from Montevideo Airport in Uruguay.

Nestled in the South American forest, all 20 bungalows and 24 suites feature private terraces for outdoor living and dining.  Guestooms feature air-conditioning and temperature controls, coffee/tea service, complimentary toiletries, down duvets and pillows, decorative fireplace, hair dryer, in-room safe, minibar, satellite TV, smoke alarms, thick terry bathrobes, twice-daily housekeeping service, all-news cable network, cordless phone, modem phone jack and two two-line telephones with voice mail.

Pura, which means “temple”, is the Resort’s all-day restaurant, enticing guests with batik draperies and carved panels of Balinese mythical figures.  The focal point is a glass mosaic pool, from which a Balinese spirit house rises, surrounded by dozens of floating candles.  Pura also features exceptional views of the outdoor double-cascade swimming pool and a distant view of the river.  Especially selected by our chef Pablo Massey, Pura’s menu is an eclectic combination of International and local cuisine.  Shiva Lounge offers a wide variety of snacks and beverages throughout the day and evening, and Mandara Bar offers the ambience of a romantic Moroccan fantasy.

The large outdoor swimming pool with double cascade is surrounded by custom-designed lounge chairs. Poolside lunches, snacks and beverages are available upon request.  The fitness facility offers a fully equipped gym, locker rooms and a sauna.  The tennis courts are located on the Resort property, offering two Har-Tru courts.  The resort also offers a variety of spa treatments, horseback riding, fishing and more.

Destined to be South America’s premier golf course, Carmelo Golf Club already has critics raving about the beauty of its natural setting.  This magnificent 18-hole, par-72 course is perfectly nestled in the rolling Uruguayan countryside, the course winds around numerous lakes, wetland, native trees and ornamental grass outcroppings.
