Four Seasons Carmelo

Ruta 21, Km 262, Carmelo, Colonia, 70100, Uruguay

Fodor’s Expert Review

Serenity pervades this harmoniously decorated resort an hour west of Colonia del Sacramento, reachable by car, boat, or a 25-minute flight from Buenos Aires. It's a destination in and of itself. 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.

PROS

  • all rooms are spacious bungalows
  • fabulous, personalized service
  • on-site activities compensate for distance to sights and restaurants

CONS

  • despite copious netting and bug spray, the mosquitoes can get out of hand
  • food quality is erratic
  • noisy families can infringe on romantic getaways
