History[edit]

Completed in 2002, Four Seasons Resort Carmelo was designed with both East and West architecture in mind. While exuding a minimalist elegance of Balinese and Japanese resorts, the designers (San Francisco-based Babey Moulton Jue & Booth) incorporated influences from China, Thailand, Europe and South America to fuse together a contemplative, yet familiar feel. Four Seasons Resort Carmelo was voted 26th by Travel + Leisure's 2006 World's Best Top 100 Resort/Hotel Awards Readers Poll[3] and ranks on the Best Hotels/Resorts in South America by Condé Nast Traveler[4] and Gallivanter's Guide 2007. Four Seasons Resort Carmelo, Uruguay currently houses 20 bungalows and 24 suites, which are anchored by a four-level main lodge.

Amenities[edit]

As with most Four Seasons properties, Four Seasons Resort Carmelo is known for its services and amenities. The resort was constructed with a par-72 championship 18-hole golf course, which was designed by the international architectural team at American Golf Course Design LTDA. It is considered South America's premier golf course by Golf Digest.
