Four Seasons Seoul

From Bogota to Casablanca, Four Seasons has a number of new hotels in the pipeline for 2015 (music to our ears). One such exciting development is the Four Seasons Seoul, slated to open in late September as the luxury brand’s first hotel in Korea. Privy to a central location in the central business district, next to Gwanghwamun in the very heart of the city, the Four Seasons Seoul is helmed by General Manager Lubosh Barta, a 10-year veteran of Four Seasons.

The hotel is housed in a new 25-storey building and has expansive facilities. There will be 317 guestrooms, billed as “generously sized” with oversized bathrooms and complimentary Internet. For dining and mingling, seven restaurants and bars -- including an exclusive “speakeasy” -- will tempt visitors and locals alike. The spa and fitness center sprawls over three levels and features a nail bar and an authentic Korean sauna experience. Rounding out the attractions, there’s also an indoor lap pool, indoor children’s pool, and an indoor golf experience. With a large ballroom and event space, the Four Seasons Seoul is expected to appeal to both a business and leisure clientele, and even host weddings.
