Whether you’re planning an elaborate honeymoon or a weekend away with your other half, Canada has plenty of choices when it comes to choosing a romantic hotel. From enjoying a luxurious couples massage at a sophisticated city hotel to snuggling in front of a fireplace perched above the Pacific Ocean, OROGOLD reviews the best hotels in Canada for when romance is on the agenda!
Wickaninnish Inn, Tofino
For a while now, the Wickaninnish Inn has held on to its reputation as one of the most romantic places to stay in Canada, and rightly so. Perched above the Pacific Ocean on a wild and remote inlet, each room features a four-poster bed facing floor-to-ceiling windows, perfect for storm-watching in comfort. Each room also has its own soaker tub, fireplace, and private balcony, as well as a wet bar and gourmet room service.
Shangri-La Hotel, Toronto
The Shangri-La Hotel in Toronto is a 5 star luxury boutique hotel, well suited for a romantic escape where you will never have to leave the comfort of your room. The Owner’s Suite is the most seductive of them all, with Asian furnishings and a soaker tub for two. OROGOLD loves the Miraj Hammam spa, the perfect place for the two of you to indulge in traditional Hammam and Gomage treatments, inspired by ancient rituals from the Middle East, after which you can relax in the glass-roof swimming pool.
Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, Banff
The Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel is located in the Banff National Park, the first national park in Canada and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A luxury mountain resort, the hotel offers a championship golf course in the summers, and some of the best skiing in Canada in the winters. Also known as the ‘castle in the Rockies’, the hotel offers a range of rooms, the most romantic being the suites that include a jacuzzi, located in quiet turrets of the castle, as well as the rooms that offer panoramic views of mountain vistas. The outdoor heated pool that is open all year round is the ideal spot for some romantic relaxation, with the most majestic mountainous backdrop.
Fogo Island Inn, Newfoundland & Labrador
On an island that experiences not four, but seven seasons, the Fogo Island Inn is the ideal destination for a romantic getaway where you can experience the power of Mother Nature. Each room boasts floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the North Atlantic, where you can watch the icebergs float serenely by. Every piece of furniture, and textile, is designed by the owners of the inn, with the suites being the best choice for romantic accommodation, as they not only feature a wood stove, but also a four-piece bath. There are plenty of activities for you and your partner to get involved in together, from art workshops to a ride in a traditional punt, a flat-bottomed boat.
Whether you’re looking for a romantic city escape or a longer break up in the mountains, Canada has options for everybody. Most hotels will be able to offer you their most romantic room if you request it, so be sure to book early to ensure that you get your first choice.
