Welcome to a modern Zen take on the traditional ski lodge—we’re talking clean lines, natural materials (wood beams, stone fireplaces), and inviting textures including buttery leather and nubby plaid. Colors reflect the hotel’s dramatic surroundings; from the inky waters of the lake to the rust-hued foliage. All of the 77 guest rooms (even the smallest studios) feature fireplaces, fully equipped (if small) kitchenettes, and 40-inch LCD televisions. Large slate tile bathrooms have separate rain showers and deep soaking tubs. Rooms overlooking the lake are rightly popular, but those with mountain and forest views are just as impressive. Larger suites, such as the two-bedroom Nita Suites, have split levels, kitchens and large balconies above the lake. Although skiing is the main focus in Whistler (hiking and biking in summertime), there are plenty of amenities at the lodge to keep non-skiers and youngsters occupied: a quiet library, a game room, a plunge pool, a hot tub, and more. In the summer months, free bikes and fishing rods are available. The impressive on-site spa highlights Nita Lake’s wellness vibe, with a yoga studio and a program of detoxifying treatments. The lodge also holds frequent fitness camps and classes with professional trainers. The Cure Lounge & Patio is a great place for an après-ski cocktail, with its comfy sofas, fireplace, and frequent live music. Otherwise, there’s the Aura restaurant, which specializes in European comfort food made from sustainable and organic ingredients.
In the Area
With its exclusive lakeside setting away from the hustle and bustle of Whistler village (but still close to the gondola), this boutique property holds some of the best views, food and amenities in the area. And that’s saying a lot for a place that hosted the 2010 Winter Olympics. Featuring Canadian specialties such as Vancouver Island black cod and Canadian wild arctic caribou chops, the award-winning Bearfoot Bistro in Whistler Village is a local favorite. And be sure to take a swig from the restaurant’s 14,000-bottle wine cellar, as well. With access to more than 432,000 acres on hundreds of unspoiled mountains and glaciers in British Columbia, the local company Whistler Heli Skiing runs guided group tours to some of the country’s most stunning terrain until late April. From April through October, the most scenic and fun way to get from Vancouver to Whistler is the Rocky Mountaineer, a train that runs through the Canadian wilderness. It delivers you to the main station just a few steps from the doors of Nita Lake Lodge.
How to Get There
Waw! What an incredible hotel; from cleanliness, friendly staff, location, amenities and coziness. This place has it all. Myself and my partner loved everything about this hotel and did not want to leave, 2 nights wasn’t long enough. We will most certainly be coming back for this hotel.
We had a couples massage which was heavenly, professional friendly staff and the cleanest of spas. The nicest most relaxing treatment we’ve ever had.
The food was out of this world with perfect ambiance.
The views from our bedroom (king with balcony) were jaw dropping...I’ve never heard my partner say ‘Waw’ so many times before! We loved the fires in the room and super big bathtub with gorgeous luxury toiletries.
The best accommodation we had on our few weeks of travel through BC and probably one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in the world.
Thank you Nita Lake Lodge.
We attended a wedding at the hotel. Beautiful setting by the lake with amazing fall colours. The location for the outdoor ceremony was perfect and the food at the party was delicious! The staff was able to get our room ready a bit sooner than check in time so we could get ready on time for the ceremony. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable with an amazing lake view.
My partner and I were in desperate need of a mini vacation. We got a great deal on a room, the couple's massage at the onsite spa was reasonably priced, and dinner was delicious at the restaurant downstairs. Everything was perfect and exactly what we needed. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The location was great; close to Whistler Village, but far enough away to be secluded and peaceful. We also enjoyed the walking trails around the lake. Lots of vegan and gluten free options at the restaurant and cafe! We were very happy
