It’s just a few hours away but a visit to the Four Seasons Resort & Residences Whistler feels like a world away. While most think of Whistler as a winter destination, summer months are prime time too. Long summer days in Whistler are filled with sun and usually a few degrees warmer than on the coast in Vancouver.
Tucked into the base of Blackcomb Mountain, the Four Seasons’ European style chalet has charm and grandeur without being overwhelming. The warm word and stone in the entry and lobby are both impressive and intimate while guests wait to check-in or visit the Les Clef d’Or concierge. The large, well appointed rooms, have every comfort one would expect from a Four Seasons property. Large walk-in closet/dressing room and huge granite bathrooms with tub and separate shower stall, in keeping with the luxury surroundings, L’Occitane en Provence toiletries. Patio, fireplace, sofa bed and seating area, fine linens, bar and mini-fridge all complete the room’s features.
The 273 rooms and private residences are spread over three towers, surrounding a central garden, and water features. The resort’s amenities make it easy to never leave the property; 2 restaurants, Sidecut is a modern take on the classic steakhouse, Fifty-Two 80 Eatery & Bar for a more casual cocktail or bite to eat, both restaurants have calm and relaxing patios against the gardens’ stream. The well appointed 2000+ square foot fitness centre is open 24 hours and is adjacent to the Four Seasons Spa to provide everything needed for your body and soul. Outside the summer experience reaches its peak around the 75 foot swimming pool and hot tubs. Plenty of lounger chairs, great staff catering to guest’s food and beverage needs, allow the guests to spend their time devoted to soaking up the sun, the pools are open until 10pm so a sundown dip completes the day. While the Four Seasons Resort Whistler has everything needed perfect summer getaway, without even leaving the resort, add in the village of Whistler’s golf courses, lakes, restaurants and bars to make it a complete summer vacation only a short scenic drive from Vancouver.
