Four Seasons Westlake’s New Artisanal Bistro Stir Features High-Tech Self-Serve Coffee System

Recently we had the privilege of visiting the Four Seasons Westlake, where we discovered some of the awesome amenities the property has available to guests. (Complimentary Wi-Fi and foot massages anyone?) While we were there, we were made aware of yet another great offering about to be unveiled in the form of a new café venue called Stir.

Just opened this month, Stir sits in the grand lobby of the hotel, complementing the dining options already on-property. Prior to the opening, guests had access to sit-down options including the Lobby Lounge Restaurant, ONYX, and a Tasting Room for wine aficionados alongside the typical in-room and poolside menus. Stir now adds the option of bistro-style dining with both outdoor and indoor seating, along with easy take-and-go items for guests in a hurry.

Speaking of in a hurry, the new space will actually feature some cutting-edge coffee technology in the form of a self-serve “smart coffee” system. The display will let patrons order drinks and then pay right from their smartphones. Pretty high tech for coffee service.


Puerto Vallarta’s Luxury All-Inclusive Resort: Villa Premiere Boutique Hotel & Romantic Getaway

You arrive to check in to your hotel and you’re greeted with a glass of champagne then guided over to a massage chair for a 15-minute neck and back relaxation rubdown. Then, you’re handed a pillow menu. All this before you officially check in.

This is what you’ll experience at Villa Premiere Boutique Hotel & Romantic Getaway, an adults-only, all-inclusive resort in Puerto Vallarta. In addition to selecting your preference of pillow firmness, you’ll also select an aromatherapy scent for your room ranging from oriental breeze to sage with lemongrass to white gardenias.

Then, almost magically, you’re ushered to your room to find all of these amenities in place. The rooms are decorated impeccably with stunning ocean views and a spacious balcony. Bathrooms are furnished with L’Occitane toiletries.
