Four Seasons: the empire of the stars

remarkable

At 103 storeys, the Guangzhou West Tower is one of the tallest skyscrapers in the world. And the dizzyingly luxurious Four Season lays claim to the top third.

If you're a gambler, you'll have had similar sensations at the poker table or the roulette wheel. It's as if you've lost touch with reality, and everything is dizzying, dazzling, worthy of a James Bond film. At the Four Seasons, this vertigo is especially overwhelming from the Sky Lobby. As vast as St Pauls Cathedral in London, its atrium is a 30-floor skylight.

The city view from the windows is amazing, especially at night. The rooms remind us that China is the empire of silk and lacquer. The lights play a chiaroscuro melody that showcases fine furnishings and fabrics in jade green and twilight red. After having rested at the spa, taken a swim in a pool that seems to plunge from heaven to earth, and donned your evening attire, climb to the Tian, the cocktail bar on the 99th floor. Then, head up a floor to Catch and its open demonstration kitchen for a fish dinner. The chefs put on such a good show that you might forget to look at the view.
