Long the favourite of the city’s power players and an international clientele ranging from rock stars to heads of state, a beloved landmark now begins a new chapter in its storied history with the opening of Four Seasons Hotel Casa Medina Bogotá on October 15, 2015.
Careful restoration of the residential-style hotel has retained the French and Spanish-influenced design details of artist and architect Santiago Medina Mejia’s original 1946 building, while technologies have been fully updated and modern luxuries added for today’s most discerning travellers and local guests.
An all-new dining concept will also be unveiled upon opening: Castanyoles Raciones y Tapas, named for the traditional hand-held percussion instruments also known as castanets. With a wood-burning grill and Spanish tiles inside and a broad terrace beneath a new glass atrium outside, Castanyoles will serve a Spanish-influenced menu for breakfast, lunch, dinner and cocktails, as well as offer gourmet items and Colombian coffee to go. The 16-seat private dining room is ideal for intimate celebrations, family dinners and business meetings.
Additional features include a full-service spa retreat and 24-hour gym for the exclusive use of Four Seasons guests.
Four Seasons Hotel Casa Medina Bogota will be the brand’s first opening in the Colombian capital, to be followed by Four Seasons Hotel Bogota in early 2016.
In celebration of its grand opening, Four Seasons Hotel Casa Medina Bogota is offering the Experience More package, which includes a USD 100 hotel credit. Rates start from USD 399 per night.
