    Exclusiveness, luxury and gorgeous backcountry surroundings are just a couple of advantages to staying at this remote compound in Clayoquot Sound on the western coast of Vancouver Island. Accessible only by sea plane or boat from nearby Tofino, Clayoquot Wilderness Resort introduces "glamping" (or glamorous camping) to travelers across the globe. Unwind in one of 25 upscale tents, several of which include en-suite bathrooms with heated floors and indoor/outdoor showers. All accommodations include single Adirondack-style, queen-size and king-size beds. Prices for this lodge, though steep, are all-inclusive (excluding spa treatments). Coastal cuisine from the Cascadia region is on the menu at the resort's restaurant. Recent visitors offer glowing reviews not only for the resort's gastronomy, but also for its accommodations, service and activities. If you're looking to unwind, consider scheduling a treatment at the Healing Grounds Spa. And if you're in the mood for adventure, you'll find an abundance of outdoor pursuits like hiking, fishing, archery and wildlife-watching.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3074 reviewsTripAdvisor (3074)
    Free WiFi

    Flanking the northern base of Blackcomb Mountain, The Four Seasons Resort and Residences Whistler prides itself on its picturesque surroundings, upscale lodging and first-rate service. Previous visitors recommend booking a mountain-facing room. Although they're pricier than other accommodations, these rooms come with cozy comforts such as designer bath products, flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi. You'll also find an abundance of activities to choose from: Wintertime yields skiing and sleigh rides, while summer offers opportunities to hike and whitewater raft. And at any time of year, you can lounge along the heated outdoor pool, rejuvenate with a Canadian maple syrup and brown sugar scrub or enjoy wine tastings. In the evening, sip a cocktail at the on-site bar or sample prime slices of tenderloin at Sidecut Modern Steak + Bar (recent visitors mention that meals here are pricey, but worth every penny). Recent guests were thrilled with the exceptional service at this Four Seasons property, but thought the parking fees were a tad high.

    Hugging Blackcomb Mountain's western flank and set at the entrance of the Blackcomb Excalibur Gondola, Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside offers easy access to the slopes and Whistler village. But its close proximity to the powder is only part of this hotel's appeal. According to recent visitors, the alpine scenery, the helpful hotel concierge and the on-site facilities — like the heated outdoor saltwater pool and fitness center — are all major draws of staying here. The traditional Irish cuisine and jovial atmosphere of Dubh Linn Gate Irish Pub also receive two thumbs up from recent visitors. And the accommodations — appointed with iPod docking stations, gas fireplaces, free Wi-Fi and spacious kitchens — are added bonuses. Recent guests said the room amenities and beautiful decor surpassed their expectations.

    Sitting pretty along Cox Bay in Tofino on Vancouver Island's west coast, the Long Beach Lodge Resort has garnered a reputation for its quiet setting and gorgeous scenery. Recent visitors say the gracious staff and two-bedroom cottages (which come appointed with gas fireplaces, kitchens and private patios and hot tubs) are both compelling reasons to plan a return stay.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1355 reviewsTripAdvisor (1355)

    Peering over Okanagan Lake's western shoreline about 230 miles east of Vancouver, the Cove Lakeside Resort features studio-style rooms equipped with flat-screen TVs and deep soaking tubs, among other amenities. However, many recent guests recommend skipping the studio (which they describe as relatively cramped) and opting for the property's more spacious accommodations. The one- and two-bedroom suites are also outfitted with kitchens, fireplaces, washer/dryer units and furnished balconies. Meanwhile, The Bonfire Restaurant & Lounge receives high marks all around for its attentive wait staff and tasty seafood- and beef-centric cuisine, prepared with locally sourced produce. Once you're ready to venture outside, explore the Cove's private beach or marina, or head 5 miles south to West Kelowna to embark on a skiing, golfing or hiking adventure — which can be arranged through the hotel concierge.

    Situated about 10 miles northwest of the city, The Westin Bear Mountain Golf Resort & Spa is a remote resort village spanning 1,300 acres and featuring two Nicklaus Design 18-hole golf courses and 156 accommodations. Recent guests compliment this Westin's comfortable beds, spacious rooms and mountain lodge-like feel (complete with lobby and in-room wooden paneling). All rooms come with queen- or king-sized Westin Heavenly beds, deep soaking tubs, a kitchenette or fully equipped kitchen and free Internet access. Golfers praise the lush greens and attentive staff on both on-site golf courses. If you're not a golfer, you can relax at the Sante Spa with a body wrap or a massage. Cap off your evening with food and cocktails at one of the three hotel eateries. Previous patrons particularly praise the intimate ambiance at The Cellar, which offers private dining for 10 to 20 guests, as well as wine tastings on Friday evenings. This destination is farther away from Victoria's main attractions, so you'll need to rent a car or catch a taxi to reach the city's center. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    Recent guests agree the Black Rock Oceanfront Resort's best feature is its location — you'll experience sweeping Pacific Ocean and rainforest views from your balcony, bedroom and even some bathrooms. Located in Ucluelet on Vancouver Island, this hotel's modern decor and clean, tidy accommodations delight guests as well. Black Rock Oceanfront Resort offers studios and one- and two-bedroom suites, all of which include kitchens, gas fireplaces and complimentary Internet access; bathrooms feature heated floors, deep soaker tubs and separate showers. While Fetch Restaurant is on the premises, travelers warn the menu is limited and rather pricey. Instead, save your money for a rejuvenating massage or facial at the Drift Spa, which previous visitors say is well worth the splurge.

    Complete with indoor waterfalls, the lobby at River Rock Casino Resort is the entry point to abundant amenities and buzzing nightlife. In 2011, River Rock's guest rooms nearly doubled in quantity when the resort built The Hotel at River Rock next door. And with six eateries and a lively lounge, guests rarely need to leave the premises. A 21,000-square-foot theater is also found on site, along with the Absolute Spa, which caters to serenity-seekers with a versatile selection of massages, facials and other body treatments. The casino is open all night, and sleeping in shouldn't be a problem; guests rave about River Rock's plush bedding (though some do caution that the thin walls do not effectively block out disruptive nighttime noise). Still, guests assure you can expect a pleasant stay overall thanks to the hotel's covetable amenities like in-suite minifridges, flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi access. Another big draw for travelers is the resort's convenient location just 3 miles east of Vancouver International Airport (YVR) and right on the SkyTrain's Canada Line.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1683 reviewsTripAdvisor (1683)

    When you need an escape from British Columbia's slopes, head around 245 miles east of Vancouver to Osoyoos' desert landscape. Situated at the center of South Okanagan grape country, Spirit Ridge Vineyard Resort & Spa is just steps from the region's top wineries, golf courses and Osoyoos Lake (the warmest lake in Canada). When you're not sipping vino at Nk'Mip Cellars Winery (adjacent to the resort), indulge in a treatment at the Solterra Desert Spa. Or pair a glass of cabernet with your meal at the Talon's Restaurant at Spirit Ridge, where guests say both the food and the views of the lake are excellent. You can also play a round of golf at Sonora Dunes Golf Course (located within walking distance of the resort) or heed the advice of recent guests and soak up the rays at the outdoor pool. And if all the wine makes you sleepy, retire to your room, which will feature a fireplace, a balcony or patio and free Wi-Fi access.
