Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts announced the scheduled opening in September 2015 of the Four Seasons Hotel Seoul. The property will be styled to reflect Korean influences.
The design team includes: Heerim Architects & Planners, serving as the building architect; LTW Designworks, in charge with public spaces and guest rooms; André Fu, for the Chinese and Japanese restaurants; and AvroKO, overseeing the marketplace, Italian and speakeasy restaurants and bars.
When it opens, the property will have 317 guestrooms, including 32 suites, all with the new, fully-customizable Four Seasons Bed; unique room design and floor-to-ceiling windows maximizing natural light; and contemporary décor accented by Korean touches.
Four Seasons Hotel Seoul will house seven dining and drinking options, with kitchens overseen by executive chef Ralf Dohmeier. Restaurant and bar concepts will include: a marketplace experience featuring live cooking stations and a gourmet takeaway shop; an Italian restaurant, with an Italian bar adjacent to the space; a Chinese restaurant including eight private chamber dining rooms, plus a tea bar; a Japanese concept restaurant; a bar and cocktail lounge conceptualized with Proof & Co.; a street level lobby bar; and a patisserie.
The property will also have a spa and health club. A three-story, 57,500-square-foot spa complex designed and conceptualized especially for Four Seasons Hotel Seoul will feature both traditional and advanced therapies. There will be seven treatment rooms including two couple’s rooms and one spa suite with its own relaxation area.
There will be three pools, including a lap pool and a vitality pool, in addition to a children’s pool.
An exclusive membership health club located within Four Seasons will include extensive facilities, including: a 8,235-square-foot gym; an indoor golf experience with driving range; and a club bar.
For events, the property will have a 8,000-square-foot grand ballroom; 5,000-square-foot second ballroom; and seven additional function spaces.
