Built on the site of an historic landmark hotel, the new Oak Bay Beach Hotel retains much of the original's old world charm, from the leather sofas by the zinc-framed fireplace to the cozy British-style pub.



This luxurious seaside boutique resort property sits right at the heart of one of Canada’s toniest neighborhoods. Oak Bay is known for its genteel British heritage, not to mention its many Tudor-style mansions, a charming boutique-filled village, two marinas, three golf courses, and all the accouterments of a life well lived.

Frommer's Exceptional



Your butler will stock your refrigerator, draw you a bath, and act as your own personal concierge. Guests can also travel around town in style, by booking a ride in the hotel’s Rolls-Royce, although once you’ve settled into the soothing mineral pool or your in-suite spa tub, even a ride in the Rolls may seem superfluous.
