Set-Jetting With Four Seasons: From “The White Lotus” to “The Dark Knight”

Immerse yourself in the magic of cinema and television with Four Seasons. Explore iconic film and TV locations, where every moment feels like stepping into your own Hollywood adventure.

Film has always had a way of sucking us into its (un)reality: Its stories stimulate emotion, its visuals titillate the senses. Recent research found that nearly two-thirds of travellers have considered planning a trip to a place they’ve seen in a film or TV show; 39% have actually booked a journey to a destination after seeing it on-screen – luxury travel (strongly) included.

Of course, travellers across generations have booked trips to the backdrops of favourite novels (think the Bath of Jane Austen’s “Persuasion”) or even paintings (like Monet’s Giverny gardens). But set-jetting to film and TV sites continues to gather momentum as a means of placing ourselves within the fantasy of our favourite storylines – with a little main character energy added for ourselves.

If you’re planning a vacation and find yourself wondering where was “The White Lotus” filmed, look no further. At Four Seasons, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to create some scene-stealing moments of your own.

Check into “The White Lotus” in Maui and Taormina

Actress Jennifer Coolidge cemented her place in TV history as Tanya McQuoid, the globe-trotting fan of the fictional White Lotus hotels and resorts, and guests at Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea and San Domenico Palace, Taormina, A Four Seasons Hotel, can walk in her footsteps.

At Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea, where Season 1 of “The White Lotus” was filmed, you’ll quickly come to understand why Maui is a must-visit destination for adventure seekers, relaxation enthusiasts and foodies alike.

From the moment you set foot onto the pristine shores of Maui, you’re enveloped in a world of endless possibilities: Watch the sun rise from the summit of Haleakalā at 9,740 feet above sea level, or embark on an underwater adventure to explore vibrant coral reefs with battery-powered scooters. For a truly breathtaking experience, take to the skies on a private helicopter tour and behold the island’s lush landscape and vibrant blue waters from above. When it’s time to unwind, retreat to a private cabana surrounded by the stunning artwork of famed photographer Gray Malin, where you can lounge all day or swim to the edge of the adults-only infinity pool.

Season 2 of “The White Lotus” was filmed at San Domenico Palace, Taormina, A Four Seasons Hotel, the perfect seaside backdrop for taking the inherent romance of Italy and infusing it with an air of drama and intrigue. A former 14th-century convent perched high on a cliff above the Ionian Sea, San Domenico Palace feels like a Sicilian dream. It’s also where you’ll find some of Sicily’s best-kept hidden gems. Enjoy a private helicopter ride around Mount Etna, take an insider’s tour of Noto with celebrated designer Samuele Mazza, or pay a visit to the medieval village of Castiglione di Sicilia to taste exceptional wines produced from the area’s fertile volcanic soil – just like Cameron, Daphne and Ethan did.

Channel “Emily in Paris” in Cap-Ferrat and Paris

“Emily in Paris” is filmed in picturesque settings all around the city, but some of the locations might look familiar to fans of Four Seasons. Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat, A Four Seasons Hotel, played a role in Season 2, and Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris, in Season 3.

Nestled within the pristine enclave of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat on the captivating Côte d’Azur, Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat, A Four Seasons Hotel, offers a retreat steeped in history. What was intended as a romantic getaway for Emily Cooper transforms into an enchanting escapade with her closest companions.

Here, surrounded by the timeless allure of the French Riviera, cherished memories are made: Take the glass funicular down the hillside to the legendary Club Dauphin and savour breathtaking views from the seawater pool. Indulge in the simple pleasure of toasting French rosé wine, followed by an enlightening astronomy lesson under the starry sky, courtesy of a world-renowned planetary scientist.

Relax in style in the French Riviera

Meanwhile, in Paris, Emily finds herself staying in the iconic Eiffel Tower Suite at Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris – with her boss. But that’s the joy of Paris: You can experience the City of Lights in the most rewarding way with colleagues, with friends or by yourself.

After marvelling at the city’s beauty in complete privacy from your panoramic terrace, stroll down to one of the Hotel’s three restaurants – with five Michelin stars among them – and relish an unforgettable meal.

Steal a scene from “Money Heist” in Madrid

Just as the Professor meticulously plans his heist, Dani García’s Michelin-starred dishes and casual Spanish cuisine are crafted with precision and passion. From tantalizing tapas to lavish main courses – including foie gras spread with cherry gravy and Kombujime lobster in green pepper sauce – each dish at Dani is a masterpiece.

Whether you’re looking for some respite from the everyday hustle or are heading off for a special weekend away, enhance your stay with the Hotel’s gourmet tapas experience. Immerse yourself in the vibrant culinary scene of Madrid as you visit five tapas bars with a knowledgeable culinary tour guide, uncovering a blend of cuisine and live entertainment at every stop.

Stay in the hotel were “Pretty Woman” was filmed

Just like Edward and Vivian, you can embark on your own romantic getaway in the heart of Los Angeles. Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel, which served as the film’s main setting, offers a “Pretty Woman” for a Day package that promises an unforgettable experience.

Start with a behind-the-scenes tour of Rodeo Drive’s famous fashion houses, where you’ll be welcomed with open arms, unlike Vivian’s earlier encounter in the film. Guided by your personal wardrobe consultant and stylist, you’ll prepare for an exclusive evening at THE Blvd, where the executive chef will prepare special menu items inspired by the film. Round-trip transportation in a Mercedes Sedan ensures that your experience is pure Hollywood glamour. To further treat yourself, unwind with a couple’s massage at the Hotel’s award-winning Spa.

Walk in the footsteps of “The Dark Knight” in Hong Kong

On your arrival at Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong, be sure to look up at the IFC tower that houses the Hotel – in “The Dark Knight,” Batman dives from the top to capture his foe.

Like director Christopher Nolan, you can capture unexpected visions of the city with a stay at Four Seasons. Aboard the Aqualuna Harbour Cruise, watch the city’s glittering skyline at night from Victoria Harbour. Journey from the Central Ferry Piers back to the Hotel and take a seat at Lung King Heen, the world’s first three-Michelin-starred Chinese restaurant. There, Chef Chan Yan Tak will present an eight-course tasting dinner. Afterward, retreat to your suite to relax next to the same views as Batman.

Explore Istanbul like Charlie’s Angels

If you watched the 2019 reboot of “Charlie’s Angels,” you may have spotted the grandeur of a century-old landmark. At Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at Sultanahmet, the Angels saved the future of the world surrounded by the city’s storied past.

You too can step into the timeless elegance of the Hotel – without the weight of the world on your shoulders – at Süreyya Teras Lounge.

From the moment you arrive, you’re transported to a place where every corner tells a story and each sense is engaged. Lounge in the courtyard surrounded by the fresh scent of fragrant herbs or take a leisurely stroll to the iconic Blue Mosque.

Away from the Hotel, uncover Istanbul’s rich cultural tapestry on an exclusive Beylerbeyi Kuzguncuk Kanlica tour. Step off the beaten path and into the heart of this vibrant city as you discover unexpected neighbourhoods. A local guide will take you to the Asian side of Istanbul, sharing fascinating stories along the way, in the comfort of a private luxury minivan with a personal driver. Together, you can capture the beauty of Istanbul’s diverse landscapes and architectural wonders with your camera.

Take a girls’ trip to the Bahamas inspired by “The Other Woman”

Like Emily Cooper’s trip to the French Riviera, “The Other Woman” is ultimately a story about female friendships and bonds. Serenity, it turns out, isn’t a distant dream when you have more in common with the people around you than you think – especially with a stay at The Ocean Club, A Four Seasons Resort, Bahamas, where part of the movie was filmed.

In a secluded beachfront setting, relax in the privacy of your room with captivating views of the sea and the sky. Your oceanfront sanctuary comes with direct access to a private beach and azure waters.
