At 1,880 feet above sea level and a mere 30 minutes from the hustle and bustle of trendy downtown Victoria by car, Villa Eyrie is taking the British Columbia getaway retreat circuit by storm, offering a mountainside experience that beckons vacationers to “Elevate Their Escape.” As Canada’s newest luxury resort that sits perched atop Vancouver Island’s Malahat Summit, Villa Eyrie boasts views like perhaps nowhere else in the country, providing a bird’s eye perspective of the surrounding coastal mountains and waters – but beyond the breathtaking views and vistas that make Villa Eyrie the current talk of the town, a virtual cornucopia of pampering amenities awaits visitors lucky enough to call this mountain-esque paradise their vacation spot.
Villa Eyrie Offers It All
Every guest room at the Villa Eyrie Resort offers luxurious comfort accompanied by five-star service, each boasting jaw-dropping views of either the Saanich Inlet, Mount Baker or the majestic Olympic Mountains. With unsurpassed attention-to-detail and access to the Island’s locales, the 95-acre property presents infinite opportunities to lose oneself in endless waves of indulgence – whether it’s dining at the Summit Restaurant, sipping a cocktail at the Driver’s Lounge, experiencing the ultimate in body massaging at the Tuscan Spa or relaxing in that French-cut bikini at the edge of the indoor saltwater pool.
When it comes to cuisine, Villa Eyrie takes the concept of Italian-inspired West Coast fare to a whole different level, beginning with the resort’s flagship Summit Restaurant. Atop the forested heights of the Malahat ridge overlooking the picturesque Saanich Inlet, this incredible and sophisticated dining foray captures both flavor and inspiration from its Mediterranean-based menu and décor. Here, classic meets “au courant” with Italian-infused, farm-to-table fare. Meanwhile, the Driver’s Lounge remains Canada’s only motorsport-themed lounge, where guests can take in a recap of their day while sitting by a roaring fire and enjoying the 180-degree views – all while vinyl records play in the background. The full Summit Restaurant menu is available in the Driver’s Lounge.
As one of the biggest draws of The Villa Eyrie Resort, the Tuscan Spa boasts three relaxation treatment rooms, a manicure and pedicure lounge and a private outdoor oasis equipped with a gas fireplace, loungers and views overlooking the Saanich Inlet. Indeed, the Tuscan Spa provides a truly unique experience that can be enjoyed mountainside, any time of the year; what’s more, only the finest organic ingredients are used wherever possible, in addition to local herbs sourced from the island, so treatments are tailor-suited to each guest’s particular needs. The Tuscan Spa offers facials, massages, body treatments, nails and pedicures – and that’s just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.
From luxury accommodations and “service in the skies” to experiencing Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit’s world-class, adrenaline-pumping tracks, teeing off at some of the best links in Canada and taste-testing the island’s grapes, Villa Eyrie is bringing a new level of luxury to the west coast.
