The Four Seasons Resort and Residences Vail offers a picturesque escape just 45 minutes west of Eagle County Regional Airport or close to a two hour drive from Denver. For seamless travel arrangements, it's advisable to pre-arrange transportation services. They are also a short stroll away from the heart of Vail Village and Gondola 1 making it easy to get to the shops and quick access to head to the mountains to ski.

Culinary Excellence: Dining at its Finest

A highlight of the tour was undoubtedly the culinary journey offered by the resort's restaurants. At Flame, the signature steakhouse, the aroma of sizzling prime cuts wafts through the air. For those seeking a more diverse culinary adventure, The Remedy Bar presents an array of craft cocktails and delectable bites and we were invited to have a cup of their famous hot chocolate in a cozy, fireside setting out on the balcony. Meanwhile, at The Pool Bar, guests can indulge in light bites and refreshing drinks while basking in the Colorado sun.

Elegance Redefined: The Rooms

This resort is a eight-story lodge offering a total of 121 hotel accommodations and 22 suites as well as 30 private residence retreats ranging from one bedroom to six bedrooms.

We had the pleasure of exploring two captivating room options, each showcasing the epitome of luxury and attention to detail.

The first room we toured was the deluxe with two double beds, spanning a generous 575 square feet. Adorned with warm and inviting décor featuring natural tones and hickory trim, the room offered a cozy ambiance. Overlooking the pool and Vail Village, the full limestone bathroom, gas-burning fireplace and a walk-in closet added to the room's allure, providing both comfort and sophistication.

The second room, a one-bedroom suite spanning approximately 1017 square feet, surpassed expectations. Boasting contemporary furnishings in rich tones and fabrics, the suite exuded an elegant and modern charm. With views of the village, this suite featured a pull-out couch, a full limestone bathroom and an additional guest half bath, offering ample space for relaxation and entertainment.

What truly set these accommodations apart was the meticulous attention to detail evident in every aspect. The thoughtful design included external balconies in all but three rooms, allowing guests to soak in the picturesque surroundings. Additionally, the ingenious approach of providing empty minibars in every room, which could be personalized upon request, showcased the Four Seasons commitment to catering to individual preferences.


The on-site spa is a sanctuary of serenity, offering a range of indulgent treatments in an ambiance that promotes relaxation. Guests can unwind and rejuvenate, immersing themselves in a world of tranquility amidst the picturesque Rocky Mountains.

For those seeking outdoor adventures, the resort provides access to an 18-hole golf course at Red Sky Ranch & Golf Club, allowing enthusiasts to enjoy a round against the stunning backdrop of the Rockies. In the winter months, proximity to world-class ski slopes makes Four Seasons Vail a premier destination for skiing enthusiasts.

The state-of-the-art gym at the resort is a fitness enthusiast's paradise. Equipped with cutting-edge exercise machines and surrounded by panoramic views of the Rocky Mountains, the fitness center offers a rejuvenating environment for guests to maintain their wellness routines.

Families will appreciate the dedicated kids' room, a vibrant and engaging space designed to entertain the resort's youngest guests. Filled with age-appropriate activities and supervised by qualified staff, parents can rest assured that their children are having a blast in a safe and enjoyable environment.

For those inclined towards retail therapy, the resort boasts a collection of upscale stores offering a curated selection of fashion, accessories, and local artisanal products. Their partnership with Bombers Ski and Gorsuch offers the opportunity for ski and snowboard dear fitting for only 20 dollars a person. Guests can indulge in a shopping and getting ready for a day on the mountain without leaving the comfort of the resort, experiencing a blend of luxury and convenience.
