Four Seasons Hotel Seoul
Ongoing: While social restrictions limit outdoor adventure, Four Seasons Hotel Seoul is offering a culinary experience that expands horizons — all from the luxury of its top signature suites. Starting June 15, 2021, groups of up to four private diners will receive unbridled access to one of the country’s top chefs — Lee Jae-young — and enjoy a menu and wine pairing as limitless as their tastes and budgets allow.
Whether the dream is for a lavish Korean BBQ complete with traditional fermented favorites or an elegant eight-course banquet, each dining experience is fully customizable. Cuisine choices include Korean, Japanese, Italian, Cantonese and Western, showcasing the skills of chef Jae-young, who brings his famous dynamism and creative flair to every dish.
The Hotel’s sommelier Josephine Yoo is also on hand to offer exclusive wine and cocktail pairings, drawing on intuitive skills honed during her 13 years in the industry.
A minimum of 24 hours after the suite booking is made — and the private chef experience requested — the lead guest will be invited to a telephone consultation with chef Jae-young and sommelier Yoo to discuss ideas and preferences, before the pair begin crafting a feast.
“In light of the current situation with physical distancing, we wanted to create an unforgettable experience that surpasses dining in the city’s top restaurants due to its exclusivity,” comments Sébastien Ganry, Director of Food and Beverage. “Imagine one of the country’s finest chefs preparing a menu you’ve chosen while a renowned sommelier selects the pairings — it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for our suite guests and we’re delighted to be able to offer it at Four Seasons Hotel Seoul.”
The exclusive private dining experience is available in the Hotel’s stunning Sejong Two Bedroom Suite and Presidential Three Bedroom Suite. Light-filled corner suite Sejong features floor-to-ceiling, wraparound windows with views over Sejong Road, while the palatial penthouse Presidential Suite includes a full gourmet kitchen and huge dining table as well as three bedrooms, an office, a media room, a private spa-treatment room and access to the Executive Club Lounge.
Sejong (Two-Bedroom) Suite starts from 3,980,000 won ($3,600) per night while the Presidential (Three-Bedroom) Suite starts from 15,000,000 won per night.
The in-suite Private Chef Experience starts from 350,000 won per person, for up to four diners.

The menu is served in a unique box reminiscent of a summer picnic basket. The meal is stacked on dry ice on the floor of the box to add the bold impression of smoke. In partnership with the artist Jeon Ye-ji, Andaz Seoul Gangnam has decorated the box with colorful drawings. Jeon Ye-ji has created three special travel and summer landscape drawings for the project.
