Eat Play Love: Girls Getaway at Nita Lake Lodge
At the foot of a BC mountain, beside a clear blue lake, Nita Lake Lodge is the perfect place for a Girls Getaway.
Nita Lake Lodge is nestled on the shores of a glacier-fed lake in British Columbia, close to base of Whistler Mountain. Named in the Top 25 Hotels in Canada by TripAdvisor, Nita redefines upscale mountain comfort, with a dedication to service, cozy oversized suites, a full-service spa and innovative local cuisine.
It’s the ideal setting for a rejuvenating escape, and now it’s more accessible than ever. Nita has begun to offer the Ultimate Girls Getaway Package—a perfect two-day getaway for two or more—with boutique lodging, a full-service spa, unique dining and adventure activities included. It’s just the right combination of action and relaxation to create the perfect girls’ getaway.
After a scenic drive up the Sea-to-Sky highway, you arrive at Nita Lake Lodge and check into your two-bedroom lake view suite. After that, it’s really up to you. Tackle as much or as little as you like.
Enjoy breakfast and dinner at Aura Restaurant, a Nita Spa Day (the four-hour package includes massage, facial and mani/pedi), and a yoga class of your choice at Loka Yoga. Cap the night off in the hot tub, relaxing under the stars.
If you’re more attracted to a little action, take advantage of a Canadian Wilderness Adventures or Ziptrek Ecotours. Choose from a range of activities, including ATV-ing or horseback rides in the summer, to snowmobiling, snowshoeing or dog sledding in winter. (Ziptrek ziplining and treetop tours are available year-round.) If shopping’s more your speed, grab your girlfriends and get ready for a weekend of fun in Whistler and some time out in the Village.
Taking full advantage of Nita’s prime lakeside setting, Aura Restaurant offers farm-to-table cuisine that features ingredients sourced daily from local farms, foragers, fisheries and Nita Lake Lodge’s own rooftop garden. Whether for breakfast with friends or a romantic dinner on a warm summer night, Aura’s atmosphere by the lake is unmatched.
But that’s not to say you can’t make a good thing even better. Aura has partnered with local wineries and breweries to create a series of unique evenings that celebrate local food, wine, and beer. Each celebration begins with a welcome drink and tour of the roof top garden. Guests then enjoy four delicious courses created by Executive Chef Dean Hossack, using locally sourced produce carefully chosen to pair with the best of BC’s wine and beer.
Each event is hosted by a partner winemaker or brew master, alongside the team at Nita Lake Lodge, and is sure to be a fun, delicious evening that will be the highlight of your stay.
The Spa at Nita Lake Lodge is always ready to provide a rejuvenating and re-balancing experience to melt away tension and restore mind and body.
Recognizing its high standards for wellness and wellbeing, The Spa has been honored with one of the 2015 Top Ten Organic Spa Awards from Organic Spa Magazine – the only spa in Canada to receive this prestigious recognition since 2012.
“With the incredible focus on organic treatments, services, and offerings, as well as sustainability and green business initiatives; we are very happy to recognize Nita Lake Lodge with this special honour,” says Beverly Maloney-Fischback, CEO, Founder and Publisher of Organic Spa Magazine.
The recognition celebrates Nita’s Chef Dean Hossack’s use of produce from local farmers as well as The Spa’s organic and provincially exclusive spa line ila. Meaning ‘Earth’ in Sanskrit, ila uses only the finest natural plant and mineral ingredients that have been wild-harvested in remote regions, in accordance with sustainable practices.
Ila products feature prominently in the newest treatment, the Inner Connection package. This two-hour experience includes The Spa’s signature Kundalini: a unique back massage complemented by essential oils, ancient massage techniques and chakra healing.
Combine this with a blissful Ananda facial that stimulates circulation, a rejuvenating body scrub, and Shirodhara – nourishing warm oil poured over the third eye and hair – and you’ve got the perfect way to soothe and invigorate the senses and the mind.
Rounding out the accolades this season, The Spa recently received the 2015 Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor, awarded to spas that consistently achieve outstanding traveler reviews.
