We toured several of the rooms. The Aerie Suite knocked my socks off. It is constructed on two levels. The king-sized bed dominates the upper level. It is a four-post bed with a gauzy canopy. I can’t imagine a more romantic bed. Surrounded by pillars, the two-person Jacuzzi sits midway between the two levels. The living area has a gas burning fireplace and wonderful furniture. You will want to step out onto your private deck and enjoy the view.
The Deluxe Rooms offer the same degree of comfort with a fabulously cushy bed covered with down comforters and a sitting area in a more compact size. Some of the deluxe rooms have a Jacuzzi in the living area. The fabrics and rugs are all exquisite. Everything is first class here; expect to see real silk and Persian carpets. All of the rooms include bathrobes, TV and DVD player, CD/cassette players, mini-bar, and, best of all, all rooms and suites are non-smoking.
This is full-service resort with a spa offering treatments for body and mind. You can take yoga or Tai Chi classes, swim in the indoor pool, exercise on their stationary equipment, relax in the outdoor hot tub, kayak, hike, play tennis, or just curl up and enjoy a great book. You will feel like a pampered princess no matter which you choose. If you are felling particularly decedent, schedule an in-room massage.
There are 35 rooms and suites here and the newest addition is a villa on the hill, which offers some of the most luxurious suites. It was late in the evening and I didn’t feel up to visiting them, but if they are more luxurious than what I saw they have to be outstanding.
There are a full range of packages, such as the Rendezvous For Two includes two nights of accommodation in a suite, a fruit basket, a one-hour, in-room massage for two, a five-course dinner on the night of your choice, and breakfast each morning. Prices range from C$1,140 to C$2,310, depending on the room and season selected.
If you arrive by helicopter, there is a helipad. For the rest of us, it is a scenic ride uphill from Victoria. Rooms begin at about C$195 for mid-week during the winter. Luxury doesn’t come cheap, but you won’t be disappointed.
