A tailor-made, results-driven approach 
In the city of haute couture, what could be more fitting then a menu of treatments tailor-made to provide the best results from the most reputable French and international brands? Le Spa will offer personalized experiences addressing the needs of all skin types, using a hand-picked collection of products and techniques developed in conjunction with globally recognized Spa and beauty experts.

A selection of brand new Signature Experiences has been developed to harness the core spirit of the Spa, providing bespoke sensory journeys that deliver tangible results. Highlights include a Kobido traditional Japanese facelift, an Alaena organic certified bio anti-ageing treatment, and a Dr Burgener escape designed especially for the Spa.

Kobido: a rare, traditional Japanese facelift created by Dr. Shogo Mochizuki
In Japanese, Kobido means “the ancient way of beauty”, and is the oldest facial tradition in Japan, following a lineage that dates back to 1472. Tradition states that this therapy was reserved exclusively for imperials and nobility for centuries. Le Spa is proud to bring this tradition to modern-day Paris, with Dr. Shogo Mochizuki having come personally to Le Spa to share his expertise with the team of therapists.

Breath of Life by Alaena: an organic treatment signed by Dr Sylvie Peres from France
This body and face treatment is inspired by Tui Na, a therapeutic art of Chinese Medicine, using patented active ingredients to boost cells rejuvenation and impart an anti-ageing effect.

George V Escape by Dr. Pauline Burgener, Switzerland
Created exclusively for Le Spa, this luxurious customised antioxidant treatment combines a Chardonnay body scrub, a massage with Champagne oil, and a facial harnessing the antioxidant power of gold, Chardonnay and green caviar. A sweet treat of a Four Seasons Hotel George V macaron and a glass of Champagne complete this uniquely Parisian experience.

Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has teamed up with  the Mabrouk Group to open Four Seasons Hotel Tunis in Tunisia in late 2017.

The following is an excerpt from a Four Seasons press release:

Four Seasons Hotel Tunis will be located on a hillside of the exclusive Gammarth neighborhood, and will combine Arabic-inspired architecture and Mediterranean influences. Set along 500 metres (1,600 feet) of pristine beachfront, the 200-room Four Seasons Hotel Tunis is near Tunis’ central business district and major cultural attractions, including the picturesque town of Sidi Bou Said and the historic ruins of Carthage.

Four Seasons Hotel Tunis will offer the largest accommodations in the city, many with outdoor terraces overlooking the Mediterranean. The Hotel will also feature an expansive Roman-inspired Spa, as well as a series of pools, gardens, and fountains that echo the design of the historic medina, creating a tranquil oasis within the heart of Gammarth.

Joining Tunis’ vibrant food and beverage scene, the Hotel will attract locals and travelers alike with a casual, coastal beach bistro and lounge, a Monaco-inspired brasserie, and an internationally-inspired market venue. The neighboring marina also offers private charters to explore the Mediterranean as well as bars and restaurants along the coast with distinctive North African flair.

Four Seasons Hotel Tunis will be the first Four Seasons in Tunisia.

Four Seasons offering Culinary Discoveries, a luxury international culinary trip by private jet

February 7, 2017

Four Seasons is now offering Culinary Discoveries, a nine-city, 19-day international trip that has guests traveling on the Four Seasons private jet. Here is more information from a Four Seasons press release:

Exclusively for the Culinary Discoveries journey, Four Seasons is offering complimentary business class airfare from each guest’s home city to the starting point in Seoul, Korea, and back from Paris, France, a value of up to $5,000 (U.S. dollars) per person.

A small group of culinary adventurers will meet in Seoul, where they will get to know one another at a private dinner in the home of chef Jong Kuk Lee. In the days to come, guests will dine on wagyu and kobe beef in Tokyo, and learn about molecular gastronomy in Hong Kong in addition to enjoying a traditional feast of whole suckling pig. In northern Thailand, the group goes on an elephant trek, followed by a market visit in Mumbai before the Four Seasons Private Jet takes off for Europe. In Florence, guests meet an eighth-generation butcher and visit Michaelangelo’s David during a private viewing, and in Lisbon, they explore a city and cuisine shaped by its seafaring history. After an exclusive foraging and dining experience in Copenhagen, guests jet off to Paris for a farewell dinner to remember at Four Seasons Hotel George V.

Along the way, Four Seasons Private Jet guests will meet other legends of the global food scene including Namae Shinobu, Alvin Leung Jr, Duangporn “Bo” Songvisava, and Jiro Ono, who gained worldwide recognition for his 10-seat restaurant in the Tokyo subway through the 2011 documentary Jiro Dreams of Sushi. Guests will also meet leading Four Seasons chefs including Christian Le Squer of three Michelin star Le Cinq in Paris, and Chan Yan Tak of Lung King Heen in Hong Kong, the world’s first Chinese restaurant to earn three Michelin stars.

“The list of dining experiences alone is astounding. Other travellers could spend weeks or months trying to secure reservations at any of these restaurants, and then plan a special trip around one meal. Here, Four Seasons has secured the best tables and behind-the-scenes access, all in one incredible trip filled with opportunities to eat, drink and explore to your heart’s content,” says Director of Guest Experience and On-Board Concierge Javier Loureiro, noting that Four Seasons Private Jet guests will have rare opportunities to learn the secrets of Michelin-starred chefs, go on market and foraging excursions, enjoy hands-on tutorials and more, all in the company of like-minded travellers.

The Four Seasons Private Jet is a 52-seat custom-designed Boeing 757. Passengers of the jet stay exclusively at Four Seasons hotels and resorts, with dedicated staff both in the air and on the ground tailoring each journey to each guest’s own interests.
