Four Seasons, Westlake Village

In LA Hotels by LA Travel Magazine

Tucked away in the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains, Four Seasons Westlake Village is a luxurious hotel experience for every traveler. Along the pristine coastline of California, miles of hiking and cycling paths, golf courses and entertainment activities surround the resort. It is the premier location for a short staycation or an extended business trip to Los Angeles.

On arrival, the Four Seasons hotel has a secluded feeling with all desired amenities within close reach.  There are 243 guest rooms and 27 luxury suits with some rooms specifically designed for extended stays. The hotel is known for having an abundance of activities for guests, so we decided to quickly explore the area. Our first stop: lounging poolside.

The Serenity Pool is exclusively for the use of hotel guests 18 and over making for a relaxing environment. We quickly took advantage of the private cabanas with flat-screen televisions and our own private bar with full service. Also available is the hotel’s indoor pool more suitable for families or those who choose to exercise while on vacation. Although our weekend was full of sunshine we opted to spend a few hours in the indoor pool, which turned out to be a very luxurious experience with the beautiful architecture of the hotel surrounding us.

After long hours in a heated pool with plenty of cocktails, dining at one of the resorts restaurants was our next move. The hotel has four options available with a variety of cuisines. Japanese-influenced seafood restaurant, ONYX, offers an array of sushi, sashimi and specialty hand rolls created by Chef Masa Shimakawa.

Weekend morning’s guests can enjoy a Farmer’s Market Breakfast with locally grown produce in a casual American style cuisine. If you’re feeling like you want something more entertaining, visit the Waterfall Lawn for a jazz and champagne brunch. With live music from Renee Myara and her jazz trio, farm-to-table breakfast completes the luxe LA experience.

The Four Seasons Westlake Village is not just a resort, it’s a community. Adjacent to the hotel is the California Health & Longevity Institute offering customized experiences to create a healthier life. Featuring advice, education and inspiration from a team of experts this unique amenity make the resort stand out from the rest.

With premier golf courses, wine vineyards and endless adventures, Westlake Village is a getaway for anyone looking for a luxurious experience with relaxation, isolation and new experiences.
