Four Seasons Hotel Bogotá to Open in April
Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts announced plans for the opening of a second property in Bogotá, Colombia on April 1. The new Four Seasons Hotel Bogotá, formerly the Hotel Charleston, underwent a complete renovation to join the Four Seasons Hotel Casa Medina Bogotá in the city.
The hotel is located in the city’s Zona T, a district known for shopping and nightlife and close to the city’s many cultural institutions and theaters.
The Four Seasons Hotel Bogotá will have 64 guestrooms, roughly half of them suites, all designed by Lauren Rotett of Rotett Studio in New York. The rooms feature custom-made beds, dark leather headboards, and wood paneling, with contrasting lighter hardwood floors. Four Seasons promises that “every modern technological need has been anticipated” and the hotel features complimentary Wi-Fi in guest rooms and public areas.
The hotel’s new restaurant, Kuru, designed by Saul Sasson and under the direction of executive chef Pablo Peñalosa, features an open Japanese robata grill. Robata is a traditional Japanese method of slow grilling that is similar to barbecue. Two-story high windows create a natural light-filled space that is complemented by a perforated wall that creates a constellation of light above the seating areas and bar.
The property’s full-service spa, which uses products from Biologique Recherche of Paris, includes a variety of treatment rooms including a spa suite for two and a steam room. The property also features a large fitness center with Matrix training equipment.
Four Seasons plans to open new hotels in 2016 in multiple sites including Kyoto, New York City, and Oahu. The hotelier has opened hotels in over a dozen new locations in the past two years including Casablanca, Moscow, Seoul, and Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat,
