If you are looking for some R&R over the weekend, Whistler serves up some luxurious options for the visitor seeking the ultimate unwind. The Fairmont Chateau Whistler nestled at the base of Blackcomb Mountain, defines mountain luxury. With unsurpassed guest services, resort amenities, restaurants, and an award-winning golf course, there really is no reason to leave the resort.
Speaking of golf, for those who are eager to hit the links this season, you will be happy to know that The Fairmont Chateau Whistler is currently offering an unlimited golf package. Consistently ranked among BC Best Golf Resorts and one of the top golf courses in North America, it will not be hard to spend the whole day perfecting your swing.
The best way to soothe sore muscles and clear your mind of the stresses of everyday is by treating yourself to the Scandinave Spa experience. The amazing facilities are located just north of Whistler Village, nestled among a spruce and cedar forest, overlooking incredible mountain vistas. The process allows you to invigorate and cleanse your body and mind in the hot baths, eucalyptus steam room, dry cedar sauna or hot pools. Next, cool down by taking a Nordic plunge, cold rain shower or braving the refreshing waterfall. Finish off your experience with a nap in one of the high-end hammocks that dot the tree-lined perimeter of this beautiful property, in a covered solarium, or outdoors beside a wood-burning fire. You will leave completely relaxed and ready to take on the world.
With so much to do in Whistler, this mountain retreat lives up to its four-season resort reputation. The two-hour drive from Vancouver on the beautiful Sea-to-Sky Highway is a treat in itself. Grab a latte and hit the open road!
