This peaceful resort is tucked away on a quiet forested inlet across the bay from Butchart Gardens. It’s designed in contemporary West Coast style, all clean lines, big windows, and natural materials of wood and stone, with spacious guest rooms filled with cozy furniture and decadent bathrooms with Jacuzzi tubs. This is one romantic spot, but it’s also a favorite destination for eco-adventures like kayaking, scuba diving, and whale-watching. Its Seagrille Restaurant & Pub is a popular destination for seafood, especially its exceptional sushi. And for even more relaxation, there is the Essence of Life Spa. Ahh!
