Fodor's Expert Review Brentwood Bay Resort & Spa

849 Verdier Ave., Victoria, British Columbia, V8M 1C5, Canada Fodor's Choice

Every room has a private ocean-view patio or balcony at this adult-oriented boutique resort in a tiny seaside village. Handmade furniture, handsome gas fireplaces, king beds topped with crisp Italian linens, and original local art decorate each of the clean-lined, earth-toned rooms. Slate-tiled bathrooms have jetted tubs and multihead showers, and shuttered windows bring ocean views to the tub. A pair of two-bedroom oceanfront villas are equally lavish. Handy to Butchart Gardens (a five-minute hop on the resort's water taxi in summer) and to local wineries, Brentwood Bay is known for the wine-based treatments at its lavish spa. The ocean-view restaurant and casual marine pub serve locally raised organic fare. Eco-cruises, kayak, canoe, and paddleboard rentals and a dive center are among the many distractions.
