$40 Million Renovation at Four Seasons Buenos Aires

The Four Seasons Buenos Aires' Lobby with the polo-inspired lounge, Pony Line, in background.

Luxury travelers got a peek at the newly transformed Four Seasons Buenos Aires in December, when the landmark La Recoleta hotel showed off the first phase of its $40 million makeover. 

The lobby got a new look: The walls are decorated with Argentine artwork and etched silver screens inspired by the tango; the reception desks are studded with South American semiprecious stones; sculptural lighting fixtures hang above a hand-tufted carpet—all perfumed by the exclusive Bayo scent created by Fueguia 1833.

Also unveiled: A new restaurant called Elena, specializing in modern versions of traditional Argentine specialties; and a bar called Pony Line where imbibers can try cocktails and a “bites” menu in a polo-inspired lounge.
