Located in Carlsbad, California, Four Seasons Residence Club Aviara announces the completion of renovations to its resort spaces and amenities. Exemplifying luxury, comfort, service and style, the unveiling showcases the redesigned lobby and lobby lounge, and the new Driftwood Spa and Seasons Restaurant.
“We’re very proud to welcome both new and loyal returning guests to our newly designed resort spaces with the launch of Driftwood Spa and Seasons Restaurant,” says Demi Ortega, Regional Vice President and General Manager, Four Seasons Residence Club Aviara. “The new spaces and luxury amenities have elevated the experience here even further and we’re excited for our guests to enjoy the home-away-from-home hospitality we’ve created for their stay.”
Led by visionary designers at the Puccini Group, and influenced by the year-round perfect weather of the coastal City of Carlsbad, its well-appointed beach town charm paired with the region’s historic Spanish heritage, the lobby at Four Seasons Residence Club Aviara welcomes guests with sophisticated contemporary design details that elevate classic mission elements. New stand-alone lobby stations, one of the first for Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, provide a comfortable and personal arrival experience, and custom-designed artwork inspired by the location adorns the walls.
The property’s new boutique spa, Driftwood Spa, features three thoughtfully designed treatment rooms, a visually stunning nail salon, and a state-of-the-art fitness room in addition to a tranquil outdoor yoga pavilion. Inspired by the ocean with natural, light-hued wood that echoes the charm of the nearby beach, Driftwood Spa is both an elegant and comforting escape that allows guests to drift away from the ordinary to a peaceful coastal oasis. The Spa uses luxurious, treatment-focused products including DNA from Dr. Ronald Moy and emerginC. Featured treatments include the Driftwood Escape, a unique journey that begins with a ginger lime sugar exfoliation, followed by a Himalayan salt stone massage and a hydrating application of grape stem cell and white tea extract to leave skin hydrated and refreshed; and the DNA Repair Facial, a results-driven facial providing comprehensive care for stressed or photo-damaged skin. An animo acid glycolic peel gently removes dull surface cells to assist in preparing the skin to receive a professional-strength growth factor serum. This serum is then combined with DNA repair enzymes to revitalise and hydrate the skin.
The new Seasons Restaurant, led by Executive Chef Jonathan Sudar, is designed as the culinary epicentre of Four Seasons Aviara community. The exclusive restaurant is California inspired with an emphasis on seasonal and locally sourced ingredients. Seasons Restaurant offers multiple distinctive dining experiences delivered through an interactive, family-style Chef’s Table experience that seats 12 guests and a signature one-of-a-kindKitchen Counter tasting experience, “Taste the Senses,” that gives six guests a “front-row” seat to watch Executive Chef Sudar prepare a menu that will delight and excite the senses.
