There’s a lot happening with Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts: from the bright lights and big city fall experiences at the recently renovated Four Seasons Hotel Houston to the seaside luxury spread of the new Four Seasons Tamarindo, Mexico, you’ll find plenty to offer your clients for the upcoming season.
That pumpkin spice feeling is just around the corner, and the Four Seasons Hotel Houston is ready to celebrate the season—and its 40th anniversary—with a whole slate of happenings. Epicureans on your list will enjoy treats like a private bourbon tasting at the Bayou & Bottle bar led by a Certified Bourbon Steward, a private Suviche Making Class at Toro Toro with “suviche” chef Cho to learn the art of making sushi and ceviche, or a Menage a Trois—where the beverage manager transforms a Brandy Alexander into a trio of experiences at Bandista, the hotel’s speakeasy and bar—, and that’s just to name a very few.
There are also special events occurring throughout the month of September, like Spritz Saturdays with cocktail specials by the pool and live DJ music, a toast to National Negroni Week from Sept. 12-18 and presentations of Magic, Music & Mayhem, Ben Jackson’s live one-man show Sept. 23-24 and Nov. 25, 26, among many others. A special standout: the Dia de los Muertos celebration from Oct. 4- Nov. 6 at Toro Toro with a three-course prix-fixe dinner. Reservations are recommended for all the Four Seasons Hotel Houston events and happenings.
“Fall is such a desirable time to be here in H-Town and at the Hotel,” said Tom Segesta, general manager of Four Seasons Hotel Houston, in a press statement. “With Houston’s downtown destination as home base, we invite visitors and locals to explore all the city has to offer—guided by our hospitality experts, I’m sure they’ll be surprised at all there is to discover and experience.”
Meanwhile, south of the border in the gorgeous Mexican Pacific coast area known as Costalegre, everything is falling in place for the opening of the Four Seasons Resort Tamarindo, Mexico. This is the other end of the location spectrum from the Houston property: the oceanside resort is part of a 3,000-acre jungle, with an on-site working farm (think zero-mile sourcing for the restaurant) and a Discovery Centre. The place, in fact, has an on-site team of biologists to help guests dive into the area’s biodiversity, including its more than 70 endemic species of wildlife and hundreds of birds, mammals, amphibians and reptiles.
“In Tamarindo, we are creating a new resort experience that is deeply connected both physically and spiritually with its surroundings,” noted Vince Parrotta, Four Seasons president, hotel operations – Americas West, in a press statement. “Working closely with our visionary owner partners and myriad local and regional designers and artisans, we are offering something entirely new. To put it simply, if you think you know Mexico, you haven’t been to Tamarindo.
The resort has 157 guestrooms and suites—many with private pools—four restaurants and bars, a legendary golf course, three pools and a spa and wellness center that includes a temazcal ceremony, a pre-Hispanic tradition that blends herbs and spiritual rituals. There are three beaches and numerous coves to explore and, as befits a family-friendly resort, it offers a fully equipped teen center and the supervised Carmelo program for kids ages 5-12 that introduces them to Mexican culture, history and the Reserve’s natural environment.
Four Seasons Resort Tamarindo is a 35-minute drive from the Manzanillo-Costalegre International airport with direct flights from Los Angeles, Phoenix, Dallas and Houston, and is accepting reservations now for arrivals beginning in late 2022.
