Sofitel Carrasco Hotel Casino and SpaMontevideo, Uruguay
Located in an upmarket suburb of Montevideo overlooking Carrasco beach and Rio de la Plata (River Plate), the Sofitel Carrasco Casino and Spa is the newest opening and one of the most luxurious hotels in the Uruguayan capital.
This magnificent historic hotel dates from 1921. For decades the Carrasco was the must-stay hotel of choice for visitors to Montevideo. However, it gradually declined in popularity, the fabric of the building deteriorated, and it was closed as a hotel in the late 1990s. Following a major restoration project, the hotel re-opened its doors in March 2013.
The hotel has a total of 116 rooms, including 23 suites, all furnished to offer guests a high level of comfort and privacy combining the latest hi-tech facilities with unsurpassed luxury and comfort . The restaurant boasts opulent décor which has been beautifully restored, and serves modern international cuisine.
The large casino is an important adjunct to the main hotel for those that want to have a flutter, while the So Spa offers a welcome retreat with a range of massage therapies.
The combination of French elegance and the nostalgia of Montevideo at the turn of the 20th century make the Sofitel Carrasco an unforgettable experience.
