Four Seasons Resort Carmelo

    Following the flight from Buenos Aires, visitors to the Four Seasons Resort Carmelo in Uruguay sip lemongrass iced tea from ceramic tumblers while checking into their bi-level suites. Heated slate floors in the bathrooms lead to outdoor garden showers, while wood-burning fireplaces warm the living areas. The resort’s nearby golf course is one of the best on the continent, and the spa is a haven of fountains, meditation areas, and massage suites. Accommodations Each of the 20 bungalows and 24 bi-level suites has a private garden and interior and exterior showers; the suites (1,300 square feet apiece) also have covered patios. Recreation Golfing, biking, canoeing, horseback riding, fishing, yoga, tennis, and polo. Kids can play at the children’s club while parents visit the resort’s casino. Dining Pura and Mandara for fine dining, Shiva Lounge and the Lobby Lounge for tea and cocktails. Worthy Diversion An afternoon at the 100-year-old Finca Narbona, an artisanal winery that also produces Parmesan-style cheese. Rates Bungalows and suites from $170 to $650.
