Located in Canada’s greatest year-round recreation destination (yes, it’s not all about the white winter powder) the Westin Resort and Spa sits in a desirable spot by Blackcomb Whistler and acted as the host resort for downhill events at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.
The Westin offers 400 comfortable suites, each with a calming and inviting atmosphere, a cosy fireplace for winter evenings and sumptuous Westin Heavenly Bed. Many of the Deluxe Studio Suites come with a balcony or patio while the luxurious Penthouse Mansion Suite is spread over two floors and has a Jacuzzi tub commanding breath-taking views out over the village and mountains or, alternatively, the neighbouring forest.
The Grill & Vine restaurant serves traditional favourites with a local twist and has a modern interpretation of classic grill food whilst Kaze Sushi serves tasty Japanese cuisine. Off the Vine grab & go is the perfect coffee station to drop into before heading out for the day and FireRock Lounge is worth a visit for an apres ski drink.
The Avello Spa & Health Club offers over 75 treatments from facials to body wraps to hot rock massages and Vichy hydrotherapy showers. The fitness studio features state of the art equipment and the hotel has teamed up with New Balance meaning you don't even have to pack any gym gear (thank goodness) and can just hire kit on arrival.
Whistler Blackcomb is home to all things adventure. With its white powder mountains, skiing and snowboarding are the big draw in winter. From cross country skiing to beginner lessons, the mountains cater to all desired adrenaline levels. In the summer Whistler is the perfect destination to embark on bike rides, or sightseeing excursions and relaxing peak to peak gondola rides. Once you're all adventured-out the pedestrianised streets of Whistler are brimming with boutique shops, sought after eateries and entertainment outlets meaning there's always something to do.
Why we love it
We love the summer BBQ that takes place on Saturdays out on the terrace.
