Canada West (Alberta, Rocky Mountains, British Columbia)

In the tradition of the Route du Bonheur (the road to happiness) Relais & Châteaux invites you to journey through Western Canada via our luxury destination hotels and gourmet restaurants. Your Western Canadian tour might begin with the rustic elegance of the Wickaninnish Inn, our luxury hotel and spa on Vancouver Island’s rugged west coast. Situated between the Pacific Ocean and a lush forest of evergreens, you can be pampered by oceanfront Ancient Cedars Spa at the Wickaninnish Inn, with unique experiences such as the indigenously-inspired Hishuk Ish Tsawalk Awakening Treatment. Then again, watch the waves break on the craggy coastline or walk on beautiful Chesterman Beach at the doorstep of this contemporary, art-filled destination hotel. Don’t forget to stop by Henry’s Carving Shed, a rustic haven where artisans create First Nations-inspired masks, totem poles, and more of local cedar tree.

Less than an hour by air outside Vancouver is the destination hotel Sonora Resort Canada. This luxury hotel is only accessible by air or sea. Here you will find all the comforts of a destination resort and a supernatural paradise. Fly fishing, ocean salmon fishing, bear watching, kayaking, wilderness tours and tennis or golf are some of the outdoor activities you’ll find at the Sonora Resort Canada. Gourmet dining, a world-class spa and their private movie theatre create an intimate romantic getaway or an unparalleled health and wellness retreat.

The luxurious boutique hotel, Wedgewood Hotel and Spa is an intimate island in the heart of downtown Vancouver. Explore the elegance and charm of the city, then retreat to the Wedgewood Hotel and Spa for rejuvenation. The Bacchus Restaurant & Lounge at The Wedgewood features Modern French gourmet cuisine comprised of local West Coast fare. The award-winning Wedgewood Day Spa offers treatments such as The Signature Thai Fusion massage, The Chocolát Vanilla Decadent Body Treatment and The Crystaline Gemstone Facial.

The last stop on your Western Canada Route du Bonheur is the rustic luxury retreat of the Post Hotel & Spa. Banff National Park and Lake Louise provide the perfect setting for play and relaxation. The Post Hotel & Spa is the perfect retreat after skiing, whitewater rafting, guided hiking, fishing, golfing, dog sledding or sleigh rides. The Post offers award-winning gourmet cuisine, an impressive 32,500 bottle wine cellar for the connoisseur and signature spa treatments at the Temple Mountain Spa.
