Sofitel’s world-renowned French elegance translates beautifully at the Sofitel Montevideo Casino Carrasco & Spa, housed within an iconic beachfront Uruguayan building named a National Heritage Site. Located in the coveted Carrasco district, this thoughtfully restored property includes a certain art de vivre in its rooms, spa, and casino, transporting its guests back in time to the Montevideo glamor and history reminiscent of the early 20th century.
Sofitel’s apartments embody a sleek-yet-classic French style where cashmere throws in ochre and velvet pillows in olive accent a rich brown palette. Even more refined are the hotel’s 23 suites which exude an elevated sense of French haute design with colors grounded in gold, silver, cream, and taupe, as well as Hermès bath amenities, spacious living quarters, and exquisite views of the Río de la Plata and its clear Carrasco beach or the Church Stella Maris.
Downstairs, marble columned lobbies, chandeliered restaurants, and art deco tiled bars complete the opulent ambiance and highlight the architecture of the building’s original 1921 structure. This is most apparent at Restaurant 1921, where gold and patina expertly pair with the pure leather furniture, metaled walls, and the wine-filled crystal glasses. Here, Chef William Porte leads patrons on a French inspired journey of the taste buds, paired with an impressive selection of Old and New World wines. Alternatively, Bar Thays sits poised for chic snacking a cocktails, and the Tea Gallery offers a selection of “françaises pâtisseries” along with a legion of high quality teas to create an unforgettable afternoon tea experience.
Guests may choose to relax on their own schedule at the hotel’s signature spa, replete with sauna, Hammam, gym, and spectacular indoor heated pool, or try their luck at the slot machines and card tables positioned in the casino. While not located in the Old City of Montevideo, Sofitel is still within easy access of the city’s historical monuments, museums, and various markets. The most exciting and unique feature, however, is the beachfront walking path, which leads guests to the beautiful Carrasco beach nearby.Request Information
