We all have those summers that stand out in our memory: The first time you visited your now-favourite city, the family beach vacation when everyone was finally able to come along, or that time you and your friends embarked on an epic trip to Thailand that you’ll never forget. No matter your travel style, the Four Seasons Private Retreats collection of more than 800 vacation homes lets you explore the world on your own terms, while providing the space, privacy and amenities you need to focus on spending time with the people around you.
A breezy beachfront villa. A picturesque mountain hideaway. A luxurious penthouse overlooking the city. Wherever your getaway takes you, make the most of your time together with a Private Residence or Villa rental experience tailored to your needs and interests. Come together in your private living room for one-of-a-kind family time, or celebrate your bond with an intimate dinner for two on your private terrace, catered by a Four Seasons chef: You have the space to be yourselves.
You’re also free to be fully in the moment, knowing that your villa or residence is managed by Four Seasons, with a dedicated team always at hand via the award-winning Four Seasons App. All you have to do is relax, savour your time together, and create a lifetime of memories.
A new tradition
Experiencing something together for the first time can be especially bonding. At Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo, unique experiences the whole family can enjoy are at the heart of every stay. Settle into your two- to six-bedroom villa or residence and let your private residential assistant take care of all the details. With so much to do in and around the Resort, having someone on hand to help organize agendas and schedule adventurous outings makes it easier to spend quality time together. Bring a taste of Costa Rica right to your pool patio with a tasting session filled with local rums, chocolate or coffee, or a sunset cocktail-making class. Travelling with kids? The in-house recreation team can put together inventive in-villa games for children of all ages. They can watch movies from a “dive-in” theatre in your private pool, go for a treasure hunt or play laser tag around the house – and parents, of course, are always welcome to join in.
Built for space
Spend your summer in a villa on the Côte d’Azur and get a taste of the “diffused magic of the hot sweet South” that F. Scott Fitzgerald famously wrote about. The Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat, A Four Seasons Hotel, already has one iconic villa on its premises, the pink-walled Villa Rose Pierre. Now the Hotel has added two villas to their Private Retreats collection, perfect for summer stays. In the five-bedroom Villa Beauchamp, unwind after a day on the water in the villa’s sauna, hammam or state-of-the-art entertainment centre featuring an in-home cinema. If you’re travelling with teenagers or a group of friends, the Pavilion – a separate, fully equipped two-bedroom guesthouse adjacent to the Villa – offers even more room and privacy. Or opt for a stay in the more intimate two-bedroom Villa Clair Soleil, with its mid-20th-century charm and a spacious terrace that includes a private pool for those glorious days spent lounging in the Riviera sun.
Carefully designed to maximize kutsurogi – the Japanese art of relaxation – Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto is a tranquil hideaway in the heart of historic Kyoto. Prepare a family meal in your Residential Suite’s fully equipped kitchen or get cosy in your luxuriously appointed living room; there’s room for everyone in Kyoto’s largest in-suite entertaining spaces. The youngest guests are in for a treat: Your dedicated Four Seasons team can set up a tent in your child’s bedroom for an evening of indoor camping they’ll remember forever. Adults will enjoy a variety of exclusive amenities, like a private geisha performance in the Hotel’s sukiya-style Tea House, set in the historic Japanese Garden. No matter how you choose to spend your time, you’ll enjoy the space and flexibility of a private home while you explore the beguiling city of Kyoto.
Best of both worlds
Four Seasons Private Retreats offers the perfect privacy of a vacation home, brought to life by the world-class service and amenities you expect from a stay with Four Seasons. At Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita, México, your Concierge can arrange a variety of experiences to be enjoyed in your private home – celebrate like a local with a poolside piñata party, or sample Mexican wines and spirits with a tasting on your terrace. As a Private Retreats guest, you’ll enjoy exclusive access to amenities like the Resort’s pools and private, pristine beach, as well as locally inspired spa treatments, fitness classes and two Jack Nicklaus–designed golf courses. Afterwards, gather with friends and family on your private terrace for a sunset dinner al fresco or a starlit swim in your oceanfront pool, set to the soothing sound of waves lapping the beach.
At Four Seasons Resort Los Cabos at Costa Palmas™, you’ll receive a warm welcome from your Personal Residential Assistant, who can stock your home’s kitchen with your favourite foods before your arrival and arrange personalized excursions and in-residence experiences, making sure every aspect of your stay is tailored to your needs and interests. Have a question, or need housekeeping services? Use the Four Seasons App to get help and luxury amenities around the clock. Explore the East Cape’s hidden waterfalls and world-class snorkelling from your private boat charter, nap in the sun on the Resort’s private beach, or set out on an off-road adventure over rolling desert dunes on ATVs: Whether you’re seeking high-octane thrills or serene bliss, a two- to four-bedroom residential villa is your ideal home base for an unforgettable summer in Los Cabos.
Reunite and reconnect
The bustle of everyday life can make it hard to find quality time together. Escape to a tropical playground where you’re free from distractions and free to focus on each other. Play castaway and lounge on the pristine white sand, dive beneath the turquoise blue waters for a world-class snorkelling experience, or tee off for a round of golf on the oceanfront, Ernie Els–designed 18-hole course: Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita is the ideal home base for you and your loved ones during your island getaway. Start each day with breakfast on your patio, pay a visit to the on-site WiseOceans Marine Educators to learn about the marine life at home in the Resort’s lagoons, set out for a paddle boat tour of the island, or join the Resort’s resident chef for a Mauritian cooking class in your private kitchen: Your luxury vacation home and once-in-a-lifetime experiences are designed to bring you closer together.
Peace of mind
Emerald green rice fields, verdant tropical gardens and soothing ponds offer an idyllic backdrop as you discover a sense of inner calm, balancing mind, body and soul. Your well-being is at the centre of your stay at Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai. Laid out in the style of a traditional Thai village and nestled among the bright green rice paddies of the Mae Rim Valley, this hidden haven is the ideal place to slow down, recharge and find fulfilment. Practice asanas and breathwork with the resident yogi, rejuvenate with spa rituals focused on releasing negative energy, or work up a sweat with a lesson in Muay Thai kick-boxing or a TRX workout: Your live-in mae baan, or personal assistant, will arrange it all with a careful attention to detail that will ensure each moment is effortless. Whether you’re travelling with friends or family, Chiang Mai invites everyone to connect with nature, yourselves and each other.
That effortless experience extends to the digital world, where the App puts the world of Four Seasons in the palm of your hand. All your activities and itineraries are available at a glance, and you can easily schedule spa treatments or activities and make dinner reservations. If you need assistance, your dedicated Four Seasons team is available around the clock via chat for a contactless experience throughout your stay – a health and safety benefit enhanced by the Lead With Care program. You can relax knowing you’ll experience impeccable Four Seasons service with the trappings of home, from arrival to departure. Whether you’re wanting to recreate some of your favourite memories or make some brand-new ones, Four Seasons can tailor a private getaway just for you and yours.
