Surrounded by 1,200 wooded acres on a perch overlooking Victoria, the Westin Bear Mountain Victoria Golf Resort & Spa is a sumptuous mountain lodge, just 20 minutes by car from Victoria's city centre. The out-of-town setting gives the resort an exclusive feel and provides easy access to mountain activities, with pleasant hiking trails up Mount Finlayson starting from just behind the hotel.
The property is best known for its two 18-hole golf courses, particularly the Mountain Course designed by Jack & Gary Nicklaus, and its impressive spa and athletic centre that houses two gyms -- one mixed and one for females only. There are tennis courts along with regular fitness classes, including yoga, pilates and spinning (extra charges apply). Afterward, laze around the heated outdoor pool or hot tub, both open all year round.
The rooms and suites are split between two buildings, and all have excellent views over the grounds and the valley. Leather upholstery and natural slate flooring provide a mountain-chic ambiance, and all rooms come with large balconies and kitchenettes or kitchens. Some have gas fireplaces.
When you start to get peckish, there are two on-site dining options encompassing family-friendly Italian fare and Spanish tapas. Also on the property is a 2,000-bottle wine cellar that hosts tastings on Friday evenings.
There is a CA$20 per room, per night resort fee (including tax), which covers access to the athletic club, local calls, high-speed Wi-Fi access, driving range access, 2-hour mountain bike rental and self-parking on site.
