Four Seasons Seoul, South Korea

Four Seasons Hotel Seoul
Seoul, South Korea


If you need any further reason to visit the South Korean capital, this decade’s most fashionable destination, then let a stay at the Four Seasons Seoul be it. Paying homage to the city’s imperial past, this grand residence in Gwanghwamun is fit for royalty and overlooks the centuries-old road to Gyeongbokgung Palace.

The Four Seasons Seoul is a perfect fusion of old-world tradition and new-wave cool, summing up the spirit and energy of Seoul. A charming, Korean front-desk manager with an impeccable American accent led us to our suite, pointing out the hotel’s vast collection of contemporary art along the way. On entering our room, the first thing we noticed was the floor-to-ceiling windows, offering fabulous views of the city and flooding the neutral, minimalist living quarters with natural light. Don’t blame us for making the most of our time here, we were regulars in the spa, pool and cocktail bar and a particular highlight for us was the amazing buffet breakfast.

If it is even possible that you tire of Korean food while in Seoul, the hotel’s designer Japanese restaurant, Kioku (meaning memories) headed by Michelin-starred chef Sawada Kazumi, certainly created a happy foodie memory.
