“At every turn, guests will find something special at Four Seasons,” said Thomas Gurtner, regional vice president and general manager, Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village. “From the hundreds of trees and soothing waterfalls outdoors, to the carefully selected antiques and striking accents indoors, it’s an environment that encourages well-being.”
Surrounded by nine acres of landscaped gardens, Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village offers 270 guest rooms, a comprehensive spa with 28 treatment rooms, five distinct dining options, and indoor and outdoor meeting space for nine to 900; all technically state-of-the-art, and decorated in a relaxed, sophisticated style. The ground-breaking California WellBeing Institute offers an additional opportunity to experience this property, the seventh in the Four Seasons California Collection.
Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village offers a full range of options for travellers, including 26 suites and a 2,525-square-foot (235-sq-m) Presidential Suite. Showpiece antiques, hand-painted murals, intricate Italian marble inlays and semi-precious stone slabs accent the traditional décor. Outside, an authentic Chinese pagoda, an orchid greenhouse, a dramatic waterfall, an herb garden and boulders from the River Kwai are just a few of the special features of the grounds.
The 40,000-square-foot (3700-sq-m) Spa features four suites with fireplaces and private outdoor plunge pools and 24 additional treatment rooms for holistic therapies, massages and face and body treatments incorporating Eastern philosophies with Western sensibilities. A full fitness centre and two pools - indoors and out - along with plenty of space outdoors for meditation, jogging and exercise round out the activities available at Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village.
The healthy approach extends into the kitchens and dining rooms as Chef Sandro Gamba creates innovative menus in a range of culinary styles - fine dining at Hampton’s for contemporary California cuisine; sushi and authentic Japanese specialities at Onyx with its salt water aquarium and onyx and carnelian accents; The Lobby Lounge for lunch gatherings, afternoon tea and evening cocktails; and The Bar for billiards and libations. A Spa Café offers refreshments to complement a day at The Spa or Fitness Centre.
In addition to an 11,600-square-foot (1080-sqm) Grand Ballroom, nine smaller meeting rooms and interesting options outside, the hotel features a state-of-the-art television studio with a 7,000-square-foot soundstage. Behind the scenes, the glass-enclosed Chef’s table is truly in the middle of the action, right in the heart of the kitchen at Hampton’s.
