If you are looking for a luxurious and classy hotel among breath-taking backdrops of natural beauty, look no further than Canada. Here is a rundown of the five best luxury hotels in the country.
Fox Harb’r Golf Resort & Spa
The 106 rooms of the Fox Harb’r Golf Resort & Spa in Nova Scotia have spectacular views over the waters where the Atlantic Ocean meets the rugged Northumberland coastline. The resort takes pride in providing excellence bar none. You can sample delicious fresh seafood, unwind at the spa, or enjoy numerous outdoor activities like boating, shooting, and tennis. But the resort is most popular for its incomparable golf courses: the championship course designed by renowned architect and Golf Hall of Famer Graham Cooke, and the shorter Oceanside Par 3 course.
River Rock Casino Resort
River Rock Casino Resort in Richmond, British Columbia, combines a luxurious hotel environment with the largest casino in Western Canada. Sitting on the marina of the Fraser River, the 202-room suite hotel and spa has spectacular views and multiple restaurants and lounges. There is even a theatre where you can catch some fine entertainment. The casino features an impressive 900 slot machines, a VIP poker room, and 14 poker tables. But with such luxurious hotel rooms to enjoy, you may prefer playing casino games at a Canadian online casino from the comfort of your suite. River Rock Casino Resort has featured in various films and television shows over the years, including the Canadian comedy movie Blonde and Blonder, and the American detective comedy-drama series Psych.
The Four Seasons Resort
The town of Whistler in British Columbia is world-famous for being the largest ski resort in North America, and it was the home of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. If you enjoy winter sports and want somewhere both luxurious and charming to stay after a day on the slopes, the Four Seasons Resort is your best option. The 273 stylish rooms are richly decorated with wood and each one has its own fireplace. And there is plenty to do in Whistler besides skiing. You can play golf, explore the town’s numerous boutiques, soak in a whirlpool, or even have a massage in clay from a nearby lake.
Clayoquot Wilderness Resort
Located on beautiful Vancouver Island, the Clayoquot Wilderness Resort combines indulgent luxuriousness with the untamed wilderness of the Clayoquot Sound World Biosphere Reserve, which lies inside the Pacific Rim National Park. Staying at this resort is an experience like no other. The lodge is only accessible via seaplane, so even getting to the hotel is an adventure. There are generously-sized campaign-style tents for guests to stay in, but this experience feels little like camping. Each luxury tent includes opulent rugs, remote-controlled woodstoves, and stylish antique furnishings. You can explore the wilderness and wildlife during the day, and in the evening, you can relax with a sustainable dining experience and some fine wines.
The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise
There is perhaps no setting more beautiful for a hotel than on the shores of the stunning turquoise-coloured Lake Louise in the UNESCO World Heritage site of Banff National Park. The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise contains 552 luxurious rooms across eight floors, with incredible views of the surrounding mountains and lake. The hotel’s vast amount of facilities includes a rustic alpine restaurant and wine bar, a full-service spa, a health club with an indoor heated swimming pool, and a cocktail lounge. The Chateau Lake Louise has been dubbed “Hollywood North” due to the number of movies that have been shot on the site, including Son of Lassie and Springtime in the Rockies. It is also a popular resort for vacationing celebrities. Over the years, the hotel has seen such notable guests as Alfred Hitchcock, Mary Pickford, and Marilyn Monroe.
