Four Seasons Carmelo Review

Serenity pervades this harmoniously decorated resort an hour west of Colonia del Sacramento. Everything is done in a fusion of Asian styles—from yoga classes at the incense-scented and bamboo-screen health club to bungalows (considered "standard rooms") with private Japanese gardens (and marvelous outdoor showers). In the evening, torches illuminate the paths, which meander through sand dunes.

Sophisticated Country Getaway
A mostly Argentine clientele pops across the wide Río de la Plata from Buenos Aires to experience the Four Season Carmelo's particular brand of versatile luxury. If you're searching for a stylish family retreat, come between December and February, when South America's school children are on summer break. Well-heeled families from Buenos Aires gravitate here for the myriad children's activities (and grown-up diversions). During the rest of the year, expect a more relaxed and romantic vibe. Enormous Asian-style bungalows or bi-level suites—with outdoor showers—are scattered among meticulously manicured gardens. Pamper yourself here anytime with spa treatments or yoga classes, muscle-soothing antidotes after a day of horseback riding or 18 holes of golf.
