Where to Stay
A visit to Victoria’s luxurious Oak Bay Beach Hotel is always a good idea, but it’s an even better one in the off season. With three heated outdoor mineral pools, hot tubs, and a steam room, this hotel makes relaxation easy. Afterwar a dip (or a steam), enjoy a handcrafted pizza at onsite restaurant FARO, or grab a pint at The Snug Pub, an iconic Victoria institution and the city’s first neighbourhood pub.
Looking for a weekend escape into nature? Look no further than Wild Renfrew, located in Port Renfrew. Stay in idyllic natural surroundings in one of their cozy accommodations, which range from seaside cottages with private outdoor hot tubs to beachfront bedrooms with fire pits.
Where to Eat
In the winter months, the patio at LURE Restaurant & Bar transforms into WinterLURE. Dine in an ethereal outdoor dome under the glow of a fire as you take in the remarkable views of Victoria’s Inner Harbour.
