Views, Pools and Spas: Vancouver's Best Resort Hotels

Cool blue swimming pools, bubbling warm hot tubs, relaxing spas and world-class restaurants are just a few of the amenities that make a resort an alluring way to spend your vacation. Vancouver resorts offer the perfect escape from a day out on the slopes, or a busy afternoon of shopping and buzzing around the city.

The Fairmont Pacific Rim has a luxurious spa, complete with outdoor hot tubs and comfortable lounge areas (with amazing views) that you'll likely never want to leave. After a day at the spa, head down to The Lobby Lounge and RawBar for live music and incredibly fresh sushi.

The Westin Bayshore is right by Stanley Park, and the Seawall is literally at your doorstep. When you're not exploring the city and the park, lounge by the large outdoor pool that overlooks the harbor.

If you want gambling, swimming and pampering all under one roof, head to The River Rock Casino Resort in Richmond. This resort is just a short drive outside of Vancouver and easily accessible by public transportation, which makes it easy to enjoy the best of both worlds. The serene rooms, impeccable service, relaxing spa, gem colored pools that are great for kids and adults, make the River Rock Casino Resort great for families.
