There are few things in life more exciting than planning where to go on one’s next trip, considering what exciting, different and out-of-the-blue adventures will be undertaken. The team at Four Seasons Hotel Buenos Aires has taken it upon themselves to help guests create the “Ultimate Bucket List Experience,” where guests are guaranteed to have a taste of Argentina through a completely personalised and private experience for themselves and their travel companions to enjoy.
Each of these experiences can be arranged individually, or form an entire itinerary.
From jet way exit to one’s suite, Four Seasons will assist travellers from the moment they land at the airport. A private escort will take guests directly from the plane to their hotel room, thoroughly following all safety and hygiene measures, allowing travellers to skip the lines and start relaxing from the moment they set foot in Argentina.
Buenos Aires views from the window. Stay in the Hotel’s majestic Owner Suite, located at the 12th floor of the main tower, where guests will enjoy the best views of Buenos Aires, its Obelisk, 9th of July Avenue – the widest avenue in Latin America – and the unique French architecture in the surrounding Recoleta neighbourhood. Guests will have their own private butler waiting and available at every moment to help meet every need, and elevate the ultimate service experience.
Carve one’s own dining experience.

At the end of the tour, guests will choose their own cut of meat to cook together with Chef Juan for dinner.
Argentine meat can’t be prepared without a good set of knives. During the afternoon, the Hotel’s private car service will take guests to San Telmo neighbourhood, where Juan Carlos Pallarols, one the most prestigious and renowned goldsmiths in the world – he has even made the pope’s cáliz (chalice), will be waiting. In his atelier, guests will carve together their own set of knives, with the date and their initials, ready to use for dinner with Chef Juan – a special Four Seasons gift to remember their Argentine trip.
